DRX9000: What is Spinal Decompression and How It Helps

To combat spine injuries and back pain, a range of modalities is available to help with certain body problems. These therapy treatment plans are meant to speed patients towards recovery as effectively as possible. One of the modalities we specialize in is the DRX9000, a machine that focuses on spinal decompression.

DRX is a highly effective solution to help with issues like herniated discs, and patients that go through with it experience significant improvements.

So what is spinal decompression, how can it be performed, and who can be helped by it the most? By understanding more about spinal decompression, patients can comprehend how safe and coordinated this process can be.

Herniated discs occur when a spinal disc’s nucleus begins pushing against its outer ring, typically due to injury or simple wear and tear. If left untreated, the ring may end up bulging outwards or torn through by the nucleus, putting pressure on your spinal cord and nearby nerve roots. Furthermore, this can cause nerve inflammation, which can then cause pain and numbness in one or both of your legs, a phenomenon known as sciatica. While these can gradually heal themselves, there are outside methods that can hasten one’s recovery. One method is spinal decompression.

At its core, spinal decompression relieves back and/or leg pain, specifically through the stretching of the spine using traction tables and similar movements. Using the same spinal traction principle that has been used by chiropractors and other trained professionals for years, the goal is to optimize healing for “bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs.” In theory, spinal decompression is built to create pressures that either cause retraction or repositioning of the discs in question or cause healing nutrients and other substances to interact with said discs.

DRX9000, which acts as a means of practicing spinal decompression, is an FDA-approved method of treating herniated discs. The way it works is that it applies pressure in equal amounts to your vertebrate columns, stretching the spine and creating a gap between your spinal discs. This in turn should allow more nutrients to flow through your spine, causing your injuries to heal slowly and steadily after regular treatment sessions. Furthermore, DRX9000 machines use servo motors, which use “nested closed-loop feedback” to customize the process to whatever patients need individually. With the use of DRX9000, patients will be able to accelerate the road to recovery and have their spinal discs treated as soon as possible.

Spinal decompression is an effective means of treatment for those who want to deal with herniated discs as quickly as possible. For those dealing with these kinds of issues, DRX 9000 may be exactly what you are looking for.
