Non-Surgical Treatment For Pain
The DRX9000 is a revolutionary treatment used for treating low back or neck painassociated with herniated discs, bulging discs and degenerative disc disease allowing patients to return to an active lifestyle.
The DRX works by enlarging the disc space, reducing hernia ions, strengthening outer ligaments to help move herniated material back into place, and reversing the high intro-discal pressure. This is accomplished through the application of negative pressure by sucking the herniated material back into the disc, which allows healing.
The main conditions DRX may help include back pain, sciatica, neck pain, herniated and/or bulging disc (single or multiple), degenerative disc disease, a relapse or failure following surgery, and facet syndromes.
Individuals that have had spinal fusions, metal plates in their back or neck are not candidates for this procedure.
How Is theDRX9000 Different From Traction Devices?
Ordinary traction pulls both the muscles and the spine in a generalized area, with no regard or your bodys response resulting in minimal and temporary results. The DRX applies specific forces to decrease pressure and enhance fluid exchange within the disc.This expands the space between the bones and restores nutrient flow to the disc, which promotes healing.MRI studies comparing traction to spinal decompression have shown traction does not return herniated material back into the disc, while spinal decompression does.
Patients describe the treatment as gentle, painless, intermittent pulling of your back or neck. Its so relaxing that many patients actually fall asleep during treatment.
