Spinal Decompression Q & A

What is spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression is a method for relieving pain caused by vertebral disc problems, and it can be done either surgically or nonsurgically. Nonsurgical spinal decompression is an effective treatment for many types of spine-associated pain, including migraines and pain radiating to arms and legs.

Spinal decompression can relieve pain that is caused by:

  • Herniated disc
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Bulging disc
  • Sciatic pain
  • Facet syndrome
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Pinched nerve

In each case, the spinal nerves are under pressure, possibly causing pain, weakness, and loss of function. Pressure is placed on nerves when the alignment or deformity of spinal structures causes the nerve to compress or grow irritated.

How does spinal decompression work?

Spinal decompression gently pulls on the vertebrae, creating space between the vertebrae and vertebral disc. This relieves pressure on the discs, which releases pressure on the nerve that is pinched and causing pain or mobility issues.

The team at 5th Avenue Chiropractic is proud to use the revolutionary DRX9000™ True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression™ system. This state-of-the-art technology offers effective, noninvasive, mechanical decompression without force, and without twisting or cracking your spine. Using accurate, controlled, patient-specific degrees of spinal tension, the DRX9000 can provide pain relief and restore mobility and function.

What does a DRX9000 treatment entail?

Your DRX9000 treatment is done in the comfort of the office. You’re placed securely in the best position for treatment. You may be sitting or lying, depending on the area or cause of your pain. The more comfortable and relaxed you are throughout the treatment, the more effective it is.

The highly sophisticated equipment offers just the right amount of tension needed to treat your condition. The machine cycles through periods of therapeutic amounts of tension on your spine, and periods of more relaxed tension.

A DRX9000 spinal decompression treatment lasts 15-25 minutes, followed by a period of rest when all tension is slowly removed from your spine. You shouldn’t feel any pain or discomfort. This highly effective method gives optimal results after about 12 treatments, each lasting about 30 minutes.
