About Spinal Decompression & DRX9000
Spinal decompression is a treatment that helps to relieve back pain without the use of surgery. It works by gently stretching out the spine to relieve the pressure on the spinal discs and change its position. This method is useful for disc herniation, facet syndromes, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, SI joint strain and other related problems. The spine is crucial to supporting and maintaining your body’s functionality and pain in the spine can ripple throughout the whole body. Decompression therapy is a great first step to relieving some of the pressure on the spine and alleviating pain.
As a part of a comprehensive treatment plan for spinal decompression therapy, Total Health & Peak Medical offer the DRX9000 and the DRX9000C. While each of these machines addresses different areas of the spine, both machines facilitate non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment for lumbar spine pain, neck pain and cervical pain. Spinal decompression machines are an alternative treatment option to surgery that provides non-invasive relief from pain.
What to Expect During Spinal Decompression
Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for decompression therapy, our medical professionals will personalize your treatment plan based on your symptoms and advanced imaging results. The DRX9000 or DRX9000C will gently stretch your spine for 25-35 minutes at a time and generally, 20 treatments over a 5-7 week period are necessary to see the full results. Though some see results sooner, it is advised to complete the full recommended treatment. Some will need to maintain consistent spinal decompression therapy treatments over the advised time frame.
Benefits & Risks of Spinal Decompression
The benefit of decompression therapy is relief from the pressure on the spinal discs, which alleviates pain. By stretching and realigning the spine, you should also see long-term effects. Through the use of comprehensive treatment plans and the DRX9000 and DRX9000C decompression therapy machines, even people with the most severe back injuries have benefited, avoiding surgery and pain medication entirely. Talk to your doctor about potential risks or side effects associated with this form of therapy.
