DRX 9000 NYC-How does the DRX 9000 work to treat Herniated discs?

We have used the DRX 9000 spinal decompression system in our NYC practice for over 7 years to treat Sciatica,Herniated disc, and Chronic Low back pain.

The Theory of Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

The DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System provides a primary treatment modality for the management of pain and disability for patients suffering with incapacitating low back pain and sciatica. It is designed to apply spinal decompressive forces to compressive and degenerative injuries of the spine. Non-surgical spinal decompression treatment involves a series of stretching/relaxation cycles aimed to relieve the pain and symptoms associated with herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica and facet syndrome through unloading due to distraction and positioning.

Nested Closed-Loop Feedback Technology

The entire DRX line of products feature Closed-loop feedback which is defined as an automatic control system that can adjust and self-correct its operation according to differences between the actual and desired output. Closed-loop feedback systems improve overall system performance.

The effectiveness of closed-loop feedback systems vary based on the variables measured, how they are measured, and how often they are measured. With respect to spinal decompression or traction systems, the measured variable is most often force, which is the amount of tension used to distract the intervertebral segments of the spine.

Adjustable Treatment Angle

Treatment angle adjusted to target various intervertebral spaces.

The DRX 9000 device series incorporates a closed-loop feedback system within a closed-loop feedback system, referred to as nested closed-loop feedback. As illustrated above, one of the three stops on the closed-loop feedback path in the DRX 9000 devices is the servo-amplifier and servo-motor. The servo-amplifier receives corrective force commands from the treatment computer 13 x per second. The servo-motor itself contains very accurate measurement devices that measure position, speed, and power consumption. The servo-amplifier monitors these variables, correcting the actions of the servo-motor 4,000 x per second. This explains the nested closed loop feedback difference that separates the DRX 9000 series from all other decompression devices. The nested closed-loop feedback system is one of the technological hallmarks of the DRX 9000 device series.
