Non-surgical Spinal Decompression


Our office has been using the DRX9000 since 2006, with over 12 years of experience and continuous patient success because of our comprehensive spinal treatment programs. Patients that are qualified for this treatment are typically doing multiple therapies to maximize relief and rebuild back structure that has weakened from chronic back pain.

Nonsurgical spinal decompression, specifically the DRX9000, is a medical treatment that was engineered exclusively for back pain. The DRX9000 is one the most effective ways to eliminate back or neck pain quickly. The machine was designed to create amplitude levels of traction into the spine by targeting specific vertebrae (bone) and discs (gel-like cushions between each vertebra), in a manner that is effective, comfortable and safe. The gentle yet powerful stretching of the spine is performed in waves with a maximum and minimum pull fluctuating back and forth. It’s through this constant change in tension that gives patients such relief in pain and increases in normal movement as the vertebra begins to separate creating healthy space between each spinal level and relieving the discs of abnormal pressure that was creating pain for you the patient.

Spinal decompression works by helping to remove the dysfunctional force that is being applied to your spine and/or discs through the change in pressure that occurs in each treatment cycle. As you the patient lay comfortably on the treatment table face up, the machine does all the work as it gently and firmly stretches your spine and creates a zero gravity effect by relieving negative pressure into the area that is causing your pain to give you maximum relief & promote healing. As this negative pressure is produced repeatedly it helps to draw in oxygen, water, nutrients and building blocks back into the damaged disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine which were likely causing your pain. It is also effective in helping to separate vertebrae that are jammed together known as facet syndrome or for people that have had failed back surgery. List of commonly treated conditions is below.

Back pain

Back pain burdens more people than any other musculoskeletal condition and is a leading cause of disability for an alarming amount of people. The most common area of the spine for people to have pain is in the lower back and the second most common is the neck. The reason for this is because both contain primary curves and bear more weight than other regions of the spine. With an increase in life stress, use of technology, the decrease in normal healthy posture and potentially a lack of wellness care are the top reasons why peoples backs can take a turn for the worse and can create what seems like an endless sea of pain.

Back pain can be anywhere from mild to disabling, it most commonly comes and goes just like the waves in an ocean. One minute you can have tranquility and then all of the sudden have a crushing series of ruthless waves and feel like you are drowning in pain. Until you learn and understand human anatomy then the reasons for the pain might seem unpredictable and out of your control. Yet with the proper understanding of biomechanics and medical guidance, you can beat back pain and gain back control and live a pain-free life.

Back pain is usually not an isolated event and the sooner you address and seek out the cause the more likely you are to not become an unfortunate statistic. Sometimes it requires a simple treatment protocol with minimal treatment and other times there may be a deeper underlining issue that has gone unchecked. Either way, its sound medical advice to seek help from a competent health professional that is an expert in back pain. The most common ways back pain is resolved in our office is through traditional Chiropractic treatment, Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression and/or Erchonia Cold Laser Therapy, sometimes we use multiple therapies to help you the patient get pain relief fast!
