During a session at NJ Spine and Wellness, our doctors will use the DRX9000® spinal decompression system. If you’re not familiar with DRX9000®, it’s a system used by chiropractors to lengthen and stretch the spine. It is designed to provide pain relief for compressive and degenerative injuries of the spine. Through the application of spinal decompressive forces to these injuries, the DRX9000® gives patients relief from back pain or neck pain, allowing them to get back to the activities they love.
Spinal decompressions sessions with the DRX9000® are typically 30 minutes and painless. Most patients experience a gentle stretch in the lumbar spine and typically find the treatment comfortable and relaxing. In fact, some patients even fall asleep during it. Research conducted by highly respected physicians and researchers associated with the Mayo Clinic, Stanford, Duke, Johns Hopkins University, the University of California San Francisco, and other prestigious medical institutions has shown the vast potential of the DRX9000.
Additionally, our chiropractors may use other treatments in conjunction with spinal compression. These can include cold therapy or electrical stimulation to improve the effectiveness. Every patient is different, but most experience pain relief after multiple sessions.
