Spinal Decompression

DRX 9000 Spinal Decompression SystemSpinal injuries like herniated discs, sciatica and other back conditions can be extremely painful. If the pain becomes debilitating, surgery may seem like the only way out. Thankfully, it’s not!

Spinal Decompression is a gentle way to treat debilitating pain caused by lumbar spine injuries. Used in conjunction with chiropractic care, it can provide better results for some patients.

How Does it Help Me?

When spinal injuries occur, pain can shoot out into the extremities. Tingling sensations or numbness can also exhibit. Lumbar injuries can cause sciatic pain in the legs and feet.

The injured discs can bulge out of the vertebral space and put pressure on nearby nerves. Herniated discs can narrow the spacing causing nerves to be pinched. Both conditions are extremely painful. When proper spacing is restored, stress on the nerve is relieved and pain is reduced.

At Rumph Chiropractic Clinic, we use the DRX 9000 Spinal Decompression System. A specially designed traction table, it’s designed to release tension between the vertebrae. Using computer technology, it slowly applies traction to the affected area. Proper spacing is restored, allowing the disc to settle back into its normal position.

Patients usually don’t feel anything until the treatment is done. Most notice a decrease in pain and increased range of motion.

You might be a candidate for spinal decompression if you have any of these conditions:

  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Facet syndrome
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Failed back surgery
  • Sciatica
  • Back pain
Spinal Decompression may not recommended if you:

  • Are over 70 years old
  • Have severe osteoporosis
  • Have nerve damage
  • Are severely obese
  • Are pregnant
  • Have surgically implanted plates or screws

It’s been proven a safe, effective and painless procedure without any of the side effects from surgery and anesthesia. Most patients find it to be comfortable and relaxing; some even fall asleep during treatment.

Your doctor determines if you are a candidate for spinal decompression. Frequency of treatment will vary according to the recommendations in your care plan. Please remember to super hydrate for 24 hours before each session.
