How Does Non-Surgical Decompression Work?

DRX9000 non-surgical spinal decompression allows patients to achieve relief from severe back by gently reducing the pressure within lumbar discs. The vertebrae of the lumbar spine are slowly and specifically separated using the state-of-the-art DRX9000 Spinal Decompression Unit. As the bones are separated, pressure is slowly reduced within the disc until a vacuum is formed. This vacuum “pulls” the jelly-like center of the disc back inside thereby reducing the disc bulge or disc herniation.

By reducing the disc bulge, we are able to reduce pressure off the spinal nerves which are so close to the disc. This process drastically reduces pain and disability. The “sucking” vacuum also pulls much-needed oxygen, nutrients and fluid into injured and degenerated discs allowing the healing to begin. Because the process is non-surgical, no tissue is actually cut in order to reduce pressure.

Notice how the separation of the spinal bones seen in the illustration above increases the space between the discs, thereby reducing the disc bulge or herniation and removes pressure off of the nearby nerve tissue.

The treatment is computer controlled, which provides gentle and painless decompression of the injured or degenerated discs, as well as the facet joints. The decompression unit separates the offending vertebrae and slowly cycles between brief moments of pulling and relaxing (oscillation). This computer driven ability allows us to avoid the reflex muscle spasm that has been such a problem for traditional traction for so many years. The decompression unit is also able to target specific discs of the spine (for example: L5/S1 at the base of the spine). This ability is called “Angulated Elongation”, and it refers to the angle at which the decompression line of pull is applied. Having the ability to alter the angle of pull allows the DRX9000 to rely less on brute force, and more on precision. The result is a more specific, and comfortable treatment, with better outcomes.

How Much Does The Treatment Cost?
The total program now costs only $1700. This price is currently much less than most doctors offering decompression (most charge 2-3 times more than we do, and they usually don't even tell you the cost over the phone because it's so much). You'll notice that we don't run large ads, so we can offer the service at a better price... We also offer a thorough consultation and screening at
no charge. If your condition warrants decompression, we can check your insurance for coverage,  because most insurances cover some amount of the cost as well. Some patient's conditions are not appropriate for decompression; therefore we need to determine the true nature of your problem in order to help.  For your consultation, you will need to bring in any Xray, CAT-scan, or MRI reports, and any medical records that may be related to your back pain. The doctor will personally review this with you, and perform a screening. The doctor will be able to determine if spinal decompression would be a good choice for you. If it looks like we can help, then we can talk about scheduling treatment sessions. If it looks like your condition is not likely to improve with this treatment, we can refer you to another type of treatment that may be more likely to help, or refer when appropriate.
