DRX 9000 is an advanced technology. It is a type of decompression therapy that uses traction with controlled force. The traction gently separates an injured disc, which creates a vacuum, reducing pressure on surrounding nerve roots.
DRX stands for Decompression Reduction Extraction. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the use of DRX 9000 as a decompression table. It is one of the best decompression devices on the market today, and is less expensive compared to surgical back procedures. In fact, some insurance companies even cover its use.
What can I expect from a session?
One session with DRX 9000 lasts for about 25 to 30 minutes. The session is not painful at all. In fact, many patients find it to be comfortable. However, it can sometimes be temporarily uncomfortable just moving back to the sitting position after lying on the table for an extended period.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of session that you will need depend on the exact back issue or injury that you are experiencing and how frequent your sessions are. For example, some patients need daily sessions for five days a week for two weeks, while others only need a few sessions a per week for a short period of time.
When will I feel relief?
Many patients experience relief after just a few weeks using DRX 9000. In independent studies, there is about an 86 percent success rate in patients using DRX 9000 spinal decompression therapy.
It is important to remember that some patients do need other types of treatments, especially if DRX 9000 and spinal decompression in general is not helpful. Some patients need medications, physical therapy, and even surgery in order to find relief from back problems. An experienced back specialist can help you determine if your specific back injury or condition can be helped with spinal decompression therapy and the DRX 9000 decompression table.
