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.
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.
