How Does DRX9000 Spinal Decompression Work?

How Does DRX9000 Spinal Decompression Work?

  • Decompression techniques provide relief by separating the bones of the spine reducing the pressure within the disc (intradiscal pressure)
  • Disc decompression treats the source of the pain – pain caused by disc bulge or disc herniation pressure
  • Treatment is computer controlled
  • More advanced methods use oscillation to reduce muscle spasm that could work against the decompression motion
  • More advanced methods also direct the treatment to specific levels of the spine by varying the angle of decompression making the treatment more effective and comfortable
