LATEST DIGITAL NON-SURGICAL SPINAL DECOMPRESSION SYSTEM
The DRX9000C™ provides non-surgical treatment options for
back/neck pain related to:
- Bulging or herniated discs
- Degenerative disc/joint disease
- Severe backpain
By providing controlled cycling decompression force to relieve pressure on structures and nerve roots causing pain.
Common causes of
NECK OR BACK PAIN
A herniated disc (also referred to as a protruding
or extruded disc) is a condition where a portion of
the gel-like center of the disc has migrated
through the layers of the annulus fibrosis. This can
cause mechanical pressure on neighboring
structures and trigger chemical reactions resulting
in pain and inflammation. These changes will
often irritate the nerves, producing numbness or
tingling in the arms or hands.
Degenerative disc disease is a state of
dehydration and deterioration marked by the
gradual erosion of the discs' ability to distribute
and resist mechanical loads. As discs deteriorate,
they become more susceptible to injury from
physical stress. Degenerative disc disease may
also play a contributing role in conditions such
as disc bulges, disc herniations, and stenosis.
Facet Syndrome: Facets are the posterior joints of
the spine that aid in keeping the vertebrae aligned.
Facet syndrome is often associated with injury or
degeneration of ·the disc and is characterized by
pain, stiffness, and inflammation. The pain generally
increases with motion and is relieved by rest.
Sciatica is a condition often associated with a herniated disc by an overgrowth of bone (bone spur).
When the injured disc compresses one of the spinal
nerves forming the sciatic nerve, it can produce a
shock-like pain that travels through the buttocks and
down one leg to below the knee. Tingling and
numbness are common in this condition. Sciatica
can occur suddenly, or develop gradually. The pain
one symptoms of sciatica can be intensified by
coughing, sneezing, or sitting in the same position
for prolonged periods of time.
Who are the best candidates
for The DRX Treatment?™
Patients that may benefit most from the DRX9000C™ are those diagnosed with herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease or facet syndrome.
What may patients experience during the course of treatment?
Some patients may experience light side effects
with this type of therapy. Mild muscular soreness
during or after treatment may occur. The sensation would be similar to what a person might experience at the onset of a new exercise regimen.
Most patients find this therapy quite comfortable and relaxing. During an average 30-45 minute treatment, most patients experience a gentle stretch in the cervical of the lumbar spine and tend to fall asleep.
