How Spinal Decompression Works
Spinal decompression uses traction to stretch the spine gently and effectively create space between the back’s bones, joints, and discs. This stretching action helps relieve pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, decreasing pain and improving function.
Spinal decompression may help bulging or herniated discs retract, relieving pressure on your nerves and other spinal structures. Spinal decompression also helps promote the movement of water, oxygen, and other nutrient-rich fluids into the discs, which helps heal them and prevent future injury.
The Alliance Orthopedics DRX9000® Approach
The DRX9000® spinal decompression system allows our doctors to adjust the amount and angle of traction to ensure the safest and most effective treatment plan for you.
Spinal decompression sessions with the DRX9000® gently stretch and lengthen the lumbar spine relieving patients from back, neck, arm, and leg pain. These sessions generally last around 30 minutes and are often comfortable and relaxing.
Additionally, our chiropractors may use cold therapy or electrical stimulation in conjunction with spinal decompression to maximize the effectiveness of your treatment plan. While each patient is unique, most experience pain relief after multiple sessions.
