Low Back Decompression Therapy


Treatment of herniated and degenerative discs without surgery DRX9000™

Are You Suffering From Chronic Back Pain?

Have you tried frequent bed rest, high doses of pain medication, and perhaps even non-traditional approaches such as acupuncture to relieve your low back pain symptoms without relief? And are you like so many, in that you have come to accept the fact that you just have to learn to live with your pain?

Today, you don’t have to live with that pain anymore. Thanks to the concerted efforts of a team of top physicians and medical engineers, a major advancement in medical technology was made to effectively treat low back pain resulting from herniated or deteriorating discs. The result of their efforts – the creation of the DRX9000™ not only significantly reduces back pain in patients, but enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles.

Common Causes of Back Pain

Your central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord. Protecting the spinal cord are vertebrae (bones), protected in turn by discs made up of a gelatin-like substance. Functioning as a shock absorber to the bones, discs undergo tremendous amounts of stress, often resulting in a herniation or “bulging” of the disc. This is the most common cause of lower back pain.

Another cause of back pain is disc degeneration, caused by a drying out of the disc area. Over the course of time, or through injury, dried discs will crack and induce pressure on nerves. The result is extreme muscle tension and back pain.

The DRX9000™ was created to effectively treat these conditions to help patients live a pain-free life.

In other words, you don’t have to live with that pain anymore.

The DRX9000™ can help if you have:

  • Herniated & bulging lumbar discs with or without complications,
  • Degenerative disc disease,
  • A relapse or failure following surgery, even with multiple herniations
  • Facet syndromes.

The DRX 9000 incorporates computer-based control systems that permit the technician to isolate the decompression force to a small area around the disc. This gentle, pulsating traction force then creates negative osmotic pressures within the injured disc and facets, increasing the flow of blood and nutrients into the disc.  This results in rehydration of the injured disc tissue, the surrounding nerves triggering the back pain.  This process is somewhat like adding water to a dry sponge, although not nearly so rapid a process. This increase in blood flow permits healing to occur that would otherwise simply not be possible or might require months or years to resolve on its own.

What to expect:

Your DRX 9000™ treatment is a combination of DRX sessions, cold pack sessions applied to the paravertebral muscles to minimize inflammation, and chiropractic visits.  Each program is individually designed for patients based on their specific needs and requirements.

During Treatment:

An upper chest harness/shoulder support is used to help distribute the applied forces evenly. Once in place, you are slowly reclined to a horizontal position. Following the physician’s orders, the therapist localizes the pain, makes any adjustments and directs the treatment to the proper area. DRX 9000™ is a medical devices that helps to mobilize the troubled disc segment without inducing further damage to the spine. In fact, many patients enjoy the “stretching” sensation as it elevates pain.


After only three weeks of treatment, clinical studies have shown outstanding results in relieving the debilitating pain that may be caused by bulging, herniated, degenerative, or ruptured discs, as well as sciatica, posterior facet syndrome, and many failed back surgery cases.

Pre- and post-treatment MRIs have shown greater than 50% reduction in the size and extent of herniations after four weeks of treatments with the DRX9000™. In fact, during the initial clinical study, more than 82% of patients report relief of back pain with the DRX9000™
