The DRX9000 – Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System is designed to provide pain relief for compressive and degenerative injuries of the spine. Through the application of spinal decompressive forces to these injuries, the DRX9000 has given patients relief from chronic back and neck pain and has allowed them to resume their daily activities
The DRX9000 system provides relief of pain and symptoms associated with herniated discs, bulging or protruding intervertebral discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, scoliosis, and sciatica. This therapy is non-invasive and non-surgical.
The theory behind spinal decompression is a process whereby forces are applied to the spine in a manner that maximizes spinal elongation. Spinal elongation is maximized when paraspinal muscles, the muscles that guard the spine from injury, are relaxed. When paraspinal muscles relax, applied spinal decompressive forces spread apart the bony vertebra of the spine. This relieves pressure on nerves and intervertebral discs. Where this spinal elongation occurs, pressure drops within the disc which facilitates movement of fluid, carrying nutrients and oxygen inside the disc. The reduction in pressure can help draw in herniated disc fluids, reducing the size of the herniation. Over time, the muscles and ligaments surrounding the disc can be trained to help keep that disc space open.
Spinal decompression with DRX9000 involves application of forces logarithmically to elongate the spine without causing the muscles that guard the spine to contract. The technology required to apply spinal decompressive forces is very advanced. Engineering research and development efforts involved in the evolution of the DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System have been ongoing since 2001.
The DRX9000 System utilizes high-speed treatment computers to calculate the logarithmic spinal decompression treatment curve for each patient. A servo-motor / servo amplifier takes the logarithmic curve and applies the forces to the patient. The servo-amplifier constantly checks and corrects the servo-motor movement. Measurement devices inside the DRX9000 monitor changes in decompressive force experienced by each patient. All of this data is constantly fed back into the treatment computers. The treatment computers constantly calculate corrections and ensure the therapy is true to each patient’s logarithmic curve. This constant monitoring, measuring, and correcting process is called a Nested Closed-Loop Feedback System. This methodology is one of the hallmarks of the DRX technology suite.
Spinal decompression using DRX9000 can help with
Disc Bulge or Protrusion
– condition in which the outer layers of discs put pressure on the spinal nerves
– condition in which in inner part of the discs pierce through the outer layers and cause inflammation and pressure on the spinal nerves.
– refers to pain going down the leg due to pressure on spinal nerves
– refers to pain usually down both legs of arms due to pressure on spinal cord
Disc Degeneration with osteophytes
– deterioration of disc and resulting in loss of disc height
– condition in which the small joints of back of spinal bones are affected
