If you have ever suffered from lower back or neck pain stemming from herniated, bulging or degenerated discs, you are not alone. Millions of Americans suffer from debilitating pain caused by these conditions every year. In fact, back pain is one of the leading causes of missed work and the number one claim for disability. Those suffering from these conditions may face the option of surgery to treat their pain and yearly, an estimated 2.7 million of Americans undergo a back-related surgery. There are revolutionary non-surgical alternatives, however – spinal decompression systems such as the DRX9000 and DRX9000C.
A spinal decompression system is a form of mechanical traction which can restore health to discs which are herniated, bulging, or degenerated without the use of surgery. By applying elongating forces to the spine, the spine is decompressed to spread apart the vertebra to relieve pressure from the discs and the surrounding nerves. Nutrients and water can now easily access the affected discs to restore its health and alleviate pain.
In a typical session, a harness is strapped either to your waist or your forehead, depending on where the affected disc is. The harness has a rope attached to it, which is also attached to the spinal decompression system. This rope will then pull at a specified angle to target the specific disc. While there are a number of different traction systems available to aid in treating these conditions that contribute to lower back and neck pain, others treat only the general affected area while the DRX9000 and DRX9000C, respectively, specifically target the affected discs to restore their health.
The therapy each patient receives is customized specifically to their logarithmic spinal decompression treatment curve, which is calculated by the internal computers of the decompression system. These elongating forces are divided and applied through 18 alternating phases of therapeutic levels to stimulate the necessitated processes for disc restoration. The DRX9000 and DRX9000C systems ensure that this same curve is constantly applied throughout the session through its internal measurement and monitoring devices; this truly revolutionary technology marks a breakthrough in the field of decompression systems.
In addition, the DRX9000 and DRX9000C are the most studied spinal decompression systems, making it a leading choice for qualified candidates. Sessions are typically 30 minutes long and for most patients, the treatment is rather relaxing and feels like a gentle stretch. One may even watch a DVD or take a nap during treatment.
While some offices in the city will employ the use of a traction machine or spinal decompression system in their office, a select few will have the DRX9000 and DRX9000C. The multitude of accreditations and the proven effectiveness of the DRX9000 and DRX9000C uphold with both Dr. Moalemi and his staff’s use of the most modern and up-to-date technologies and treatment methodologies. These spinal decompression systems are the primary choice at our pain management and physical rehabilitation facilities.
