Do Spinal Decompression Results Last?

About 10 years ago, we began to incorporate spinal decompression therapy into our herniated disc treatment protocols. The machine we use is the DRX-9000.

The DRX-9000 is designed and built to treat herniated and bulging spinal discs naturally.

Over the past 10 years, we have treated hundreds of patients with spinal decompression. Many were scheduled for back or neck  surgery! We are proud to say that the results our patients have experienced are outstanding. Most of the time we are able to achieve favorable outcomes, and about half of our decompression patients continue on with some sort of maintenance program.

So, do spinal decompression results last?

For the most part, YES! As long as you do not return to unhealthy lifestyle habits which may have caused the condition to develop. Most herniated discs develop over time. Some are traumatic or due to sports or auto injuries. The majority are because of things like poor posture or ergonomics, obesity, stress, bad shoes, poor sleeping habits, etc. Things you definitelty have control over.

Once the spine becomes damaged and misaligned, it starts to cause abnormal wear and tear on the spinal disc. This can then lead to disc bulging and herniation.

The DRX-9000 re-positions the disc, enlarges the disc space, re-hydrates the disc, strengthens the spinal ligaments and muscles, and elongates the spine. Typically the results are permanent, but many that lead active lifestyles wish to be proactive and have a decompression session here and there to help ensure things stay where they are. This is optional and totally up to the patient. Maintenance care frequencies range between 4-12 sessions per year.
