Non-Surgical Back Decompression and Your Mid Back Pain
Non-surgical decompression therapy aims to non-surgically alleviate patients’ back and neck pain. The DRX9000 True Non-surgical Spinal Decompression System™ aims to provide pain relief for compressive and degenerative injuries of the lumbar spine.
Non-surgical lumbar decompression therapy with the DRX9000 offers patients relief from pain associated with the following conditions:
Considered the most common root source of back pain associated with a certain structural irregularity. Pain may come overnight, but seldom does a herniated disc appear overnight.
Degenerative Disc Disease
DDD is a state of dehydration and deterioration marked by the steady erosion of the discs ability to dispense and resist mechanical loads. As discs worsen, they become more prone to injury from physical pressure. Degenerative disc disease may also play a large part in conditions such as disk bulges, disc herniations and stenosis.
It is a condition often associated with a herniated or ruptured disc. When the injured disc restricts one of the spinal nerves leading to the sciatic nerve, it can generate a shock-like pain that travels through the buttocks and down one leg to under the knee. Tingling and numbness are familiar in this condition. Sciatica can arise abruptly, or develop slowly.
How does non-surgical decompression therapy alleviate pain involved with herniated discs and degenerative disc disease?
The theory behind non-surgical back decompression is a course of action whereby forces are applied to the spine in a manner that maximizes spinal elongation. By enlarging intradiscal space, a disc herniation size may decrease.
Are there any exclusions why a back pain patient could not be treated on the DRX9000?
The DRX9000 cannot treat back pain patients with: compression fractures, pelvic or abdominal cancer, prior lumbar fusion, severe osteoporosis, spondylolisthesis (unstable), pars defect, Pathologic Aortic aneurysm, disc space infections, severe peripheral neuropathy, hemiplegia or cognitive dysfunction.
If anyone you know is suffering from a herniated disc, bulging disc, degenerative disc disease or sciatica, simply ask you doctor if you qualify for the DRX9000 therapy.
I also like to emphasis that this treatment is not 100% there are some patients that will not respond. It my 7 years of utilizing spinal decompression on over 500 patients maybe 5 patients did not respond favorably but they did not have a negative outcome.
