Spinal Decompression

No Surgery, No Drugs, Just Relief 


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. The DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ is designed to provide pain relief for compressive and degenerative injuries of the spine. Through the application of spinal decompressive forces to these injuries, the DRX9000™ has given patients relief from back pain and has allowed them to resume the activities they love.
If you are experiencing pain from herniated, bulging or degenerative discs that result in neck, lower back pain or sciatica, you may be a candidate for this procedure.

Frequently asked questions that you may find helpful

Is it painful?
No, most patients fall asleep 5 minutes into the treatment.

How long is the treatment?
About 28 minutes.

Who are good candidates?
Anyone with neck or lower back pain, bulging or herniated discs and sciatica, tingling in the hands or feet.

Do I need to have an MRI?
Not for the initial consult, but before treatment begins,Yes, you will need to present with a somewhat current MRI of your neck or lower back (within about 1 year old) to properly identify the exact location of the problem area.

How many sessions does it take?
Typically 20 sessions.

What is the difference between Decompression and traction?


Decompression incorporates a treatment angle that isolates specific segments, traction does not. There is a computerized logarithm in decompression, meaning you are being pulled on a ramp up to a predetermined weight for about 1 minute and then released to half of that weight for about 45 seconds. Why you ask? not constantly pulling on the spine allows the muscles to relax so true decompression can occur. If you pull on muscles too long, they begin to resist. Traction has no logarithm, your’ re just pulled at a constant weight. The DRX9000 allows separation between the pelvic region and the chest. This allows for gentle movement of the lower half of your body while the top half remains stationary. This slow and gentle back and forth movement creates a vacuum allowing for hydration of the disc.

Why does the disc need to be hydrated?
If you think of a healthy disc as a big fat jelly donut that works like a shock absorber, you wouldn’t be far off. The better hydrated your jelly donut is the better it is at protecting the nerves that exit from the spine. But when you squish the jelly donut and the jelly oozes out this puts additional pressure on the surrounding nerves that are near by causing radiating pain that you feel down your legs or arms.

Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. Today, we have highly­-successful advanced technology that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery. We use a system that combines a machine with an exceptionally precise computer program for a treatment called spinal decompression.

Using this computer technology and the decompression machine, we are able to create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and pulls the herniated or bulging material back into the disc. The computer program is created and supervised by one of our highly trained staff. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine in rotation, which, over time, separates the vertebrae. This creates a vacuum­-like effect that pulls the soft bulging disc material back into the disc. This can not only clear up back pain, but also any pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves. For example, patients who have a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting sciatic pain down their legs. Relieving the herniated disc will cause that pain to vanish.

Treatment time and frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal decompression treatment is usually about twenty minutes. Patients usually have treatment a few times a week, and are typically finished with treatment within eight weeks.

If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a spinal decompression treatment plan that corresponds with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just cover up the problem, ask us if spinal decompression can help you.
