The DRX9000™ True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression™ System is a primary treatment modality for managing pain and disability caused by incapacitating low back pain and sciatica. This non-surgical, non-invasive system assists healthcare providers to relieve the pain and symptoms of conditions such as:
“DRX® treatment has proved to be a leading technology for the non-surgical and drug-free treatment of chronic lower back pain, like that due to herniated disc, bulging disc, and degenerative disc disease. Clinics and hospitals in some 45 countries are now effectively using the DRX9000™, and there are more than 2,400 systems in use worldwide,” said Saleem Musallam, founder and president of Excite Medical, which manufacturers DRX.
Excite also says that treatment is more than 88 percent effective for patients with chronic lower back pain, according to research conducted by physicians from leading medical schools and research institutions, including the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University and University of California, San Francisco, and published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Medicine.
How Does It Work?
Using advanced technology that has been evolving since 2001, the DRX9000™ uses the application of forces to elongate the spine while preventing the contraction of the muscles that guard the spine.
The DRX9000™ decompression device, used by our chiropractors at Spinal Rehabilitation and Wellness Center, is an FDA-approved device designed to reduce pressure on a compressed spinal nerve. The decompression table puts negative pressure on the painful area of the spine. Over time, the painful area of the spine is elongated, relieving the pressure on the nerve and allowing the proper spacing of the spine’s components.
The DRX9000™ True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System employs high-speed computers to carefully monitor the treatment. A specialized system takes the logarithmic (mathematical scale) curve calculations and applies the appropriate forces to create a decompression curve tailored for each patient’s individual spine.
One of the hallmarks of the DRX™ technology system is what the company calls the Nested Closed-Loop Feedback System. This is the process of data continually being fed back into the computer system to monitor treatment. The system constantly checks (a thousand times per second) and corrects the movement. The computer’s constant calculations result in continuous monitoring, measuring and correcting.
DRX9000™ Treatments at Spinal Rehabilitation & Wellness Center
Administered by our chiropractic doctors in Dumont, treatment occurs while lying with your back on the DRX9000™ table. Once the machine is turned on, it begins to administer a gentle stretch to the affected spinal area. Although the timing of pain relief can vary, some patients say they experience immediate pain relief during the session. However, this pain relief is not always long-lasting, nor continuous after the session. That’s because the gentle stretching and elongating process is done over time and usually takes several months to provide a true measure of its effectiveness.
