Dysfunction of the spine
With aging or strenuous lifestyle, healthy spinal discs can begin to degenerate. Although slow disc degeneration is a normal process, overly stressed or injured discs weaken and deteriorate at an increased rate. Over time, the spine will compress the discs and pain, bulging discs, or herniated discs can develop.
Spinal disc bulges occur when the substance between the discs bulges or slips out of its place due to pressure. This bulge puts additional pressure on the nerves producing pain and discomfort.
Disc herniation develops when the substance between the discs ruptures due to even more excessive pressure and the substance spills out, pressing on the nerve, creating severe pain and weakness.
Spinal decompression with the DRX9000™ slowly lengthens and decompresses the spine, creating negative pressure within the discs that help to reposition bulging discs and pull extruded material back into place. Decompression releases the pressure that is built up on the discs and nerves. Over a series of painless sessions, patients experience powerful pain reduction and healing, some after the first few treatments!
Those with the following conditions may be a candidate for Spinal Decompression Therapy:
- Bulging and Herniated Discs
