Spinal decompression machines are designed and built to treat cervical and lumbar disc bulges and herniations non-surgically.
Spinal decompression treatments can also help other conditions such as Facet Syndrome, Spinal Disc Degeneration and Stenosis.
Spinal decompression machines like the DRX-9000 (the one we use) seek to enlarge the disc space, re-position the disc, re-hydrate the disc, elongate the spine, strengthen the spinal ligaments and restore spinal motion and biomechanics.
The treatment process takes between 15-30 one hour sessions (the average is 20). We reserve the machine for you and you are on it about a half hour. Then there is muscle stimulation, ice, laser, or anything else you may need such as massage or chiropractic.
Results are outstanding. Many lumbar or cervical disc patients who are suffering with physical limitations and pain are able to return to more normal lives. Some require ongoing maintenance and some don’t. All cases are different.
The results are usually permanent as long as the patient continues on with the recommended exercises and decompression sessions if indicated. Usually 4-6x per year on the decompression machine is enough to keep things in place…along with the patients home care.
Sure, some patients suffer major set-backs due to over-doing it or an accident…but the DRX-9000 is usually able to get them back on track in much less time that it took initially.
If you are suffering with symptoms such as low back pain, neck pain, sciatica, arm pain, weakness, numbness in the extremities and have been diagnosed with a herniated or bulging disc, you may be a candidate for nonsurgical spinal decompression.
