Spinal decompression therapy, also known as non-surgical spinal decompression, is a procedure that uses spinal decompression machine (DRX9000) to relieve pain by creating a negative pressure and space within the disc allowing disc fluid to move back into place. This creates an environment in which the disc can receive more nutrients and therefore heal itself more quickly and effectively. As a result, in time, bulging or herniated disc tissue is healed, and the pain caused by these conditions is reduced/eliminated. Spinal Decompression Therapy typically consists of a series of 24-30 treatments each lasting for about 30-45 minutes over a course of 8-10 weeks. The patient should not feel any pain during or after the decompression therapy, in fact many patient fall asleep during the procedure.
As mentioned before, spinal decompression therapy aims to help patients who suffer from chronic pain due to bulging, degenerated and/or herniated discs. Yet, it can also be used for the pain management and treatment of injured or diseased spinal nerve roots, sciatica and worn spinal joints.
Spinal decompression therapy is also referred to as “non-surgical decompression therapy”, since it is considered a safe, highly effective, and affordable alternative to spinal surgery. Surgical spinal procedures are often considered a last option due to the potential risk of complication or failure that may involve with them.
