DRX9000 Spinal Decompression provides relief by separating the bones of the spine reducing the pressure within the disc (intradiscal pressure)

Disc decompression treats the source of the pain – pain caused by disc bulge or disc herniation pressure

DRX9000 Spinal Decompression is the only method that uses oscillation to reduce muscle spasm that could work against the decompression motion

DRX9000 Spinal Decompression directs the treatment to specific levels of the spine by varying the angle of decompression making the treatment more effective and comfortable

How Does DRX9000 Spinal Decompression Work?

DRX9000 Spinal Decompression provides relief to severe back and neck pain sufferers by gently reducing the pressure within spinal discs. The bones of the spine are slowly and methodically separated using the state-of-the-art DRX9000 Spinal Decompression Unit. As the vertebrae are separated pressure is slowly reduced within the disc (intradiscal pressure) until a vacuum is formed. This vacuum “sucks” the gelatinous center of the disc back inside thereby reducing the disc bulge or disc herniation. Significant disc bulge reduction removes pressure off the spinal nerves and drastically reduces pain and disability. This “sucking” vacuum also pulls much-needed oxygen, nutrients and fluid into injured and degenerated discs allowing the healing to begin.

The treatment motion is computer controlled to provide gentle and painless decompression of the injured spinal discs. Advanced DRX decompression techniques separate slowly and cycle between brief moments of pulling and relaxing (oscillation). This reduces protective muscle spasm that contributed to the poor success rate of outdated “traction” techniques. The DRX9000 also incorporates advanced angulated elongation methods to target specific discs of the spine (for example: L5/S1 at the base of the spine). “Angulated Elongation” refers to the angle at which the healing decompression force is applied. This allows the treatment to rely less on brute force (separating multiple levels with high force) and more on finesse (using less decompressive force to focus on a single spinal segment) to rehabilitate individual spinal discs.

Illustration of DRX9000 Spinal Decompression in Action. Notice how the separation of the spinal bones increases the disc space, reduces the disc bulge / disc herniation and removes pressure off of the spinal nerve. Also, unseen in this illustration, the negative disc pressure created by the decompression “sucks” much-needed oxygen, nutrients and fluids into the disc.
