In the past, if you suffered from a condition that causes back pain such as a herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, or spinal stenosis, you most likely had to rely on costly pain medications, lengthy bed rest, strenuous physical therapy, or even spinal surgery.

What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal decompression therapy is a nonsurgical and painless way of relaxing and healing your spine. This therapy involves a motorized traction table that helps relieve back, leg and other pain by gently stretching the spine. At Texas Spine Clinic, we utilize the state-of-the-art DRX9000 spinal decompression machine to perform this treatment.

Besides relieving pressure on your spinal nerve by reducing the overall size of your bulging or herniated disc, the procedure promotes a healing response from your body and allows nutrients to infuse in your vertebrae.

How Spinal Decompression Therapy Works

The DRX9000 is the most advanced, nonsurgical, and noninvasive 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 controlled by a doctor.

The doctor will manipulate the table, and, as it moves, it will target specific portions of your spine to decompress injured areas.

The process helps to separate the vertebrae in your back from one another creating a vacuum effect known as negative intradiscal pressure.

As your spine begins to stretch and the muscles relax, the healing process starts.
Each treatment typically lasts 30 to 45 minutes.

Why Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy Is the Right Choice for Your Back Pain

We’ve been using the technology for more than 14 years, and many patients actually find it to be a very relaxing procedure. During treatments, there is no downtime and few restrictions, so you can continue living your daily life throughout the process.

You’ll feel the most relief during the treatment because it actually takes the pressure off the painful disc and the painful nerves, and allows you to relax and experience relief. Many of the patients we see have a difficult time sitting, standing, walking or sleeping, but when they’re on the machine, it’s the most comfortable they feel all day.

The treatment stretches your disc fibers, and that stretching is what allows your body to heal itself over time. The unique advantage to the DRX9000 over other types of decompression therapy is being able to isolate each spinal disc, which makes the difference in terms of effectiveness.
