The DRX9000® is an innovative technology that uses spinal decompression to treat various spinal conditions. It is being hailed as a state of the art alternative to invasive and risky back surgery.
It has been cleared by the FDA to treat patients suffering with incapacitating lower back pain and sciatica caused by herniated discs, degenerative discs, and posterior facet syndrome.
The DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ provides relief of pain and symptoms associated with herniated discs, bulging or protruding intervertebral discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, scoliosis, and sciatica. The therapy is non-invasive and non-surgical.
PHASES OF THE DECOMPRESSION THERAPY
After few sessions of spinal decompression, 200 mg negative pressure is reached in the disc to bring the nucleus material back toward the center, there fore reducing the size of the disc.
Once the disc jelly material goes in the center, the fissure or the injured disc circular fibers will start the healing process.
The fibrous tissue is about to heal and finally in this phase.
Once the disc jelly material goes in the center the fissure or the injured disc circular fibers will start the healing process Phase 4 is complete healing of the circular fiber and containment of the disc material within the interdiscal space.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?
During each 30-minute treatment session the patient relaxes comfortably on a heavily-padded bed. After being secured into position by an upper and lower body harness, the patient can completely relax by watching a DVD, listening to music, or simply taking a nap. Typically, each 30-minute session is divided into 18-phases where spinal decompressive forces alternate between a maximum and minimum therapeutic level. The cycling of forces in this manner appears to create a pumping action that simulates the natural processes responsible for nourishing the intervertebral disc.
WHO ARE THE BEST CANDIDATES FOR TREATMENT?
Patients that will benefit most from the DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ may be those diagnosed with herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease or facet syndrome. Spinal decompression therapy can also provide relief in patients suffering from advanced scoliosis.
