The DRX9000C works by enlarging disc space, which in turn, reduces herniation and strengthens outer ligaments.

How long does treatment take?

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

Why should I choose Spinal Decompression?

After trying multiple treatments including pain medication, physical therapy, or injections they feel like business man with low back pain from sitting at desk and worksurgery 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!
