herniated-bulging-disc-spinal-decompressionHart Chiropractic Center uses the same state of the art technology as the Mayo Clinic and John Hopkins Medical University.

A recent study from the Journal of Medicine showed a dramatic 88% SUCCESS RATE for the treatment of chronic back pain using spinal decompression.




  • The DRX 9000C is the preferred non-invasive treatment for back and neck pain
  • The FDA approved the DRX 9000C in 2001
  • Many insurance companies now cover decompression therapy
Who is a good candidate for Spinal Decompression with the DRX9000C?

How does Spinal Decompression work?

The DRX9000C works by enlarging disc space reducing herniation and strengthening outer ligaments.

How long does treatment take?

Depending on the patient, treatment can be 5 to 20 sessions done over a period of 6 weeks.  Each session includes 30 minutes of decompression followed by 20 minutes of icing.

Why should I choose Spinal Decompression?

Many of our patients are faced with a nagging pain that will just not go away.   Maybe its been years or just a few months, but either way they are faced with a pain that is felt on a daily basis.  After trying multiple treatments including pain medication, physical therapy, or injections they feel like surgery is the only option left.  This is where Spinal Decompression is so powerful.   Spinal Decompression works by targeting and enlarging the disc space, reducing herniation, and strengthening the outer ligaments.  Pain is reduced and often can be eliminated.  Surgery is no longer needed!

As with any treatment, Spinal Decompression may not work on every patient but the statistics show that we have been able to help many of our patients live pain free and avoid surgery by correcting the specific disc that gave them so much pain.

We are proud to be able to give patients the option of trying Spinal Decompression for their pain before choosing to head off to surgery.

What results can I expect?

Relief of pressure associated with lower back pain  or neck pain.  Pre and Post treatment MRI’s have shown greater than a 50% reduction in size and extent of herniation after 4 weeks of treatment with the DRX9000C.  As with any treatment to get a better idea of how spinal decompression can help you and your pain please schedule a consultation with Dr. Hart.

What our patients are saying about the DRX9000C…

“Before starting treatment my pain scale was at a 9! I had constant sharp shooting pain from my back to my right foot.  Very severe! I can honestly say that after treatment with the DRX9000C my pain is GONE and I am medication free!”

“After herniating my L5 disc I thought surgery was my only option.  Then I found out about the DRX9000C.  After just a couple weeks of treatment my symptoms had improved by 95% and now I am no longer facing invasive surgery!”

“Before I began treatment on the DRX9000C my lower back pain was so bad that I couldn’t even bend down to tie my shoe.  Since treatment my lower back pain has completely subsided and I have regained feeling in my leg and foot.”

“After years of living with back pain, I tried a combination of physical therapy and pain medication.  I had slight relief from my pain.  A friend told me about the DRX9000C.  I hesitated thinking it wouldn’t help, but wanted to try all my options before surgery.  It has been a true lifesaver! I haven’t felt this good in years!”

“Before treatment on the DRX9000C I couldn’t move my neck,  I was in pain 24 hours a day and I had to wear a neck brace.  Since treatment, I’ve regained mobility and can turn my neck without experiencing any pain!  It’s been an amazing difference in the quality of my lifestyle.”

“I had whiplash and was on pain medication and had to sleep sitting up.  After treatment I was able to sleep and work PAIN FREE!  It’s wonderful having full mobility again and having all my strength back.
It’s priceless!”
