Relieve Pain and Restore Mobility with Spinal Decompression
Spinal Decompression is an effective option in treating:
How can decompression therapy help me?
Decompression therapy is useful to help relieve pain and other symptoms caused by compression of the nerves in the spine. Reduction of pain and discomfort can occur for those diagnosed with nerve compression, when the spine is gently stretched and lengthened. This process relieves the pressure on the affected nerve root and can result in reduced pain and discomfort.
Why is decompression therapy important?
There are many factors that can lead to nerve compression, with the most common being age and increased body weight. These factors result in prolonged pressure being placed on the spine and can lead to areas of the spine wearing unevenly. As this occurs, it can result in conditions like bulging discs, herniated discs or bone spurs. As these conditions develop it creates abnormal movement and positioning of the vertebra in the spine, which can put pressure on the nerve root and cause severe chronic pain.
What should I expect during my treatment?
The DRX9000 decompression machine is a device used to lengthen and stretch the spine to reduce pressure on severely impacted nerve roots in the spinal canal. This decompression table works by placing negative pressure on the area of your spine that is causing your pain and discomfort. Over time, that area of the spine is elongated to allow the proper spacing in the spine and relieve pressure on the surrounding compressed nerve root.
During this treatment, you will lie on your back on a table. Once the machine is turned on, you will feel a gentle stretch in the affected area of your spine. Some patients describe an immediate pain relief while the machine is on, though this relief does not always last after the treatment session. Because the decompression table is a gradual stretch over the general affected area of the spine, patients often need several months to measure the effectiveness of the treatment.
