Nashville Spinal Decompression
Spinal Decompression Therapy provides results
Spinal Decompression Therapy is FDA-cleared and has been clinically proven with a very high success rate for pain associated with herniated or bulging discs…even after failed surgery.
This revolutionary therapy treats several conditions involving your spinal column and discs. It is a non-surgical, decompressive therapy for the relief of back and leg pain or neck and arm pain.
During this procedure, by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc in the neck or low back can be isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it.
Who can benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Anyone who has back pain or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression therapy.
These conditions include herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, facet syndrome, or arm or leg pain/numbness.
Are the Spinal Decompression sessions painful?
In almost all cases, the treatments are completely painless. In fact, some patients fall asleep during the spinal decompression session.
How many sessions will I need?
Since treatments are individualized for the patient, the number of sessions can vary.
However, our doctors typically recommend 20 sessions in order to achieve the best results.
Other studies have reported that the majority of ruptured disc patients achieved “good” (50-89% improvement) to “excellent (90-100% improvement) results after spinal decompression therapy!
The vacuum effect accomplishes two things. From a mechanical standpoint, disc material that has protruded or herniated outside the normal confines of the disc can be pulled back within the disc by the vacuum created within the disc.
Also, the vacuum within the disc stimulates growth of blood supply, secondarily stimulating a healing response. This results in pain reduction and proper healing at the injured site.
The DRX9000 uses data retrieved (several thousand times per second) from its servo-motion system and constantly feeds it back into the treatment computers. This controls any variations in therapy to ensure proper spinal decompression treatment.
The DRX9000 system differs from regular traction in this way by eliminating muscle guarding that is typical in conventional traction devices. It also allows for higher levels of spinal decompression and disc rehydration.
