About the DRX 9000
The DRX 9000 is the only system that has earned FDA 510K clearance to be called true spinal decompression. The DRX 9000 is the only system with a documented significant success rate. The DRX 9000 offers precise treatment using a closed-loop feedback system. The unit targets the specific disc level based on videofluoroscopy studies.
The DRX 9000 uses state-of-the-art technology to gradually relieve compression of spinal nerves associated with lower back pain or cervical pain. The process has been proven to relieve pain by
- Enlarging the disc space
- Reducing herniation
- Strengthening supporting spinal ligaments to help move herniated disc material back into place
- Reversing high intradiscal pressure through the application of negative pressure
What To Expect with Your Treatment on the DRX 9000
Your DRX 9000 treatment begins with a series of daily sessions for two weeks, followed by treatments three times per week as needed. Each session consists of 30–45 minutes on the DRX 9000. Following each therapy session, a cold pack with electrical muscle stimulation is applied to assist in the stabilization of the paravertebral muscles.
An upper chest harness / shoulder support is used to help distribute the applied forces evenly. Then you are slowly reclined to a horizontal position. Following the physician’s orders, the therapist localizes the pain, makes any needed adjustments, and directs treatment to the proper area. The DRX 9000 helps to mobilize the affected disc segment and begin the process of pain relief and recovery.
Pain associated with herniated discs, protruding discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, spinal stenosis, sciatica, and failed back surgery will respond to treatment using Spinal Disc Decompression. The DRX 9000 achieves these effects through decompression of intervertebral discs.
What Results Can I Expect from the DRX 9000
After only three weeks of treatment, clinical studies have shown outstanding results in relieving debilitating pain caused by bulging, herniated, degenerative, or ruptured discs; sciatica; posterior facet syndrome; spinal stenosis; and many failed back surgery cases.
Pre- and post-treatment MRIs have shown greater-than-50% reductions in the size and extent of disc herniations after four weeks of treatment with the DRX 9000.
During the initial clinical study many patients reported relief of back pain following treatment with the DRX 9000.
