Relieve Your Pain with Our DRX 9000 Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy

Stop existing and start living again with this life-changing treatment.

In the past, if you suffered from a condition causing severe back pain such as a herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, or spinal stenosis, you had limited options other than surgery after failing medications, chiropractic, and injections.

Now with the DRX 9000, this FDA-cleared medical device might even be able to help you avoid surgery. We have been using the DRX 9000 spinal decompression system since 2006 and have treated more than 1000 patients. We are experts at using the technology and selecting the most appropriate candidates for the treatment. Call 210-741-9166 and schedule your free no-obligation screening to see if you might be a candidate for non-surgical pain relief.

What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical treatment designed to gently stretch and relieve pressure on the spine similar to a traction device. Decompression Therapy is an evolution in technology and is able to achieve better results than traction for 3 main reasons:

1.  Targeted Stretch: With the DRX 9000 machine, we are able to specifically target and isolate the involved disc leading to a more effective treatment. This is achieved by changing the targeted angle of stretch by single degrees to achieve the best pull. Each patient is different based on the shape of the spine and patient height. With spinal traction, the stretch comes at zero degrees and is the same for every patient and every disc problem, no matter what level of the spine is damaged. 

2. As the spine is stretched, pressure inside the spinal disc reduces creating a negative pressure within the disc. This can only happen if the patient’s muscles remain relaxed during treatment. The DRX 9000 has a built-in force feedback that automatically adjusts the tension of the stretch if the machine senses the patient’s muscles resisting. With previous forms of traction, studies have shown an increase in disc pressure due to the patient’s muscles tightening and guarding the stretch. Intradiscal pressures while undergoing treatment on the DRX have been measured from -150 to -200 mm/Hg creating suction inside the disc leading to faster healing, reduced pain, and improved mobility. 

How Spinal Decompression Therapy Works

The DRX9000 is the most advanced, non-surgical, and non-invasive treatment solution we have today in spinal procedures. Here’s how it works:

You’ll be comfortably harnessed on a padded table that is computerized and programmed by the provider based on your specific condition.

As the treatment begins, you will feel a gentle stretch in the spine. Most patients find the treatment extremely relaxing and fall asleep.

The treatment gently stretches the disc creating a vacuum pressure or negative intradiscal pressure that speeds healing, reduces pain, and improves mobility.

Each treatment lasts about 25 minutes on the DRX and afterwards we provide core strengthening coaching. Most patients undergo about 20-25 sessions over 6 weeks.
