Your back pain has a cause and it is NOT a need to take more pain medication. Spinal Surgical intervention is often not only ineffective, it can leave you in worse shape than before the surgery.
The device the Ventura Spinal Care Center uses for Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is the DRX9000™ and it is based on the theory that decompressing your spine is one way that disc spaces can be increased and disc protrusions may be reduced.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Is Different Than Conventional Traction
Although traction has been around for thousands of years, science has shown it to be not very effective.
In fact, in some areas of the body, such as the neck, getting traction can be a risk factor for more severe problems down the road. In the case of the lower back, it has not been shown to reduce disc bulges, get your back to work, or lower your pain.
One of the theories as to why this is the case, is the effort of your back muscles in resisting the pull when traction is applied. The distraction forces come on much differently with the DRX9000™ – True Spinal Decompression.
The machine is constantly sensing your muscles’ resistance to the distraction forces. When your muscles contract, the machine backs off a bit… when they “let go,” it pulls more.
Also, the forces are cycled and ramped up and down in an attempt to “confuse” your muscles so that maximal decompression is achieved. The machine uses very sophisticated technology to achieve this.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is not your grandfather’s traction! Or the same as hanging upside down or perhaps other devices you may have tried in the past.
Our non-surgical spinal decompression system is different from other decompression technologies.
With our system the patient always lays face up with the knees bent and with support rests underneath the shoulders.
You do not grip onto anything with your hands during the treatments, which can be tiring for some patients.
With our system the angle of decompression can be adjusted to effect different lumbar levels in your lower spine.
It is extremely relaxing and most people can’t wait to come in for their treatment. Often they fall asleep because they have no pain for the first time in weeks, months, or years!
You want to be assured that you are getting the very best treatment available for your spinal condition. The DRX9000, True Spinal Decompression, “sets the standard” for non-surgical spinal decompression.
What is the theory behind decompression? How does it work?
This negative pressure may then draw or suck the displayed disc material more towards the center of the disc and away from your nerves. For many patients, this can mean pain relief because a compressed nerve is a painful nerve.
If the pressure on the nerve is released, it can then begin to heal.
Our non-surgical spinal decompression system is designed to assist the body’s natural tendency to heal itself because Mother Nature sometimes needs a little help.
If the disc can be moved even a small amount away from the nerve, this can be enough to decrease inflammation and irritation.
What about the evidence or research behind Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?
There have been several published studies about non-surgical spinal decompression and the results it gets with back pain sufferers.
Suffice it to say, the studies show that non-surgical spinal decompression obtains very good results with patients who suffer from bulging, herniated or ruptured discs, even multiple levels of involvement. The same studies show that non-surgical spinal decompression also get good results with degenerated or thinning spinal discs.
I can tell you from personal experience in our office that for over three years now, we are having very good results with our patients who have spinal disc-related injuries. If you are accepted as a non-surgical spinal decompression patient, your chances of having much less pain and increased function are very good!
Plus, with my experience working with non-surgical spinal decompression patients, along with my competent and friendly staff, I can guarantee that the service you receive in my office will be next to none!
Does Spinal Decompression with the DRX9000™ really work?
The DRX9000™ has been proven effective in relieving the pain associated with bulging and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and even relapse or failed back surgery. Since its release in 2001, clinical studies have revealed an amazing success rate in treating lumbar disc related problems with the DRX9000™. Click Here for How the DRX Works!
How does it work?
The DRX9000™ uses state of the art technology to apply a distraction force to relieve nerve compression often associated with low back pain and sciatica.
How do I get started?
Contact our office at (805) 648-7987 to schedule an initial consultation with one of our Doctors to determine if you are a candidate for care with the DRX9000™. After carefully studying your case history and exam findings, he will sit down and explain our recommended plan of action for you. After answering any questions you may have about the recommended plan, you may begin your care with the DRX9000™.
