New Technology Helps Back Pain Sufferers
With aging or a strenuous lifestyle, healthy spinal discs can begin to degenerate. Although slow disc degeneration is a normal process, overly stressed or injured discs weaken and deteriorate at an increased rate. Over time, the spine will compress the discs, and pain, bulging or herniation can develop.
Spinal disc bulges occur when the substance between the discs bulges or slips out of its place due to pressure. This bulge puts additional pressure on the nerves, producing pain and discomfort. Disc herniation develops when the substance between the discs ruptures due to even more excessive pressure and the substance spills out, pressing on nerves, creating severe pain and weakness.
Spinal decompression with the DRX9000 machine slowly lengthens and decompresses the spine, creating negative pressure within the discs that help to reposition bulging discs and pull extruded material back into place. Decompression releases the pressure that is built up on the discs and nerves. Over a series of painless sessions, patients can experience powerful pain reduction and healing. Some may experience this after only the first few treatments. Those with bulging and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, intervertebral discs, posterior facet syndrome, sciatica and postsurgical maintenance may be a candidate for spinal decompression therapy.
