Widely regarded as a state-of-the-art alternative to invasive and risky back surgery, the DRX9000 uses decompression to treat a variety of spinal complications. The technology of the device allows users to adjust the amount of spinal traction to treat back conditions, including herniated discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, and pinched nerves.
There are four main sections of the spine: cervical (neck), thoracic (upper back), lumbar (lower back), and sacral (tailbone). The cervical and lumbar are the hinge points — the pillars of spinal mobility — making them more injury-prone. This is where the DRX9000 comes in.
The machine enables the user to take a gravity-eliminated position, pinpoint the area in the neck or back, and add a distraction force that relaxes pressure on the disc, allowing it to move and relieve pain. Before use, individuals must have a recent MRI — which will show where the problem area is — for diagnosis to let us know if they are a candidate for back traction.
