SPINAL DECOMPRESSION IN ALPHARETTA
The Most Common Cause of Low Back Pain
The vast majority of people who suffer with back pain are suffering due to a degeneration of the discs between each vertebra in the spine. As these “intervertebral” discs degenerate, the space between the vertebrae becomes narrowed. Herniations or bulging of the disc can then occur, pressing on surrounding nerves, and causing pain and/or numbness in the back and even radiating into the leg.
What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
True Spinal Decompression is the gentle, intermittent traction of the spine. This intermittent traction creates a small vacuum with each pull, allowing the disc to draw in and away from the nerve root. At the same time, the disc is drawing nutrients into itself from the surrounding tissues.
The compromised discs heal, regenerate, and strengthen the weakened area of the bulging disc. Pressure on the nerve is relieved as the disc regenerates. Pain gradually subsides in the low back, and no longer radiates into the hip and leg.
Once I Begin Treatment, How Long Before I Experience Relief?
Most patients report a reduction in pain after the first few sessions. Typically, significant improvement is obtained by the second week of treatment.
There are always exceptions, however. Depending on the severity of the degeneration of the disc, and how long the patient has had the back pain, it may take longer than normal to experience substantial relief from pain.
How Long is a Spinal Decompression Treatment?
From start to finish, approximately 45 minutes, with 30 minutes of actual treatment time.
What is the Success Rate Utilizing the DRX9000?
Extensive clinical testing has proven the DRX9000 to achieve an 86% success rate in treating herniated and degenerated discs, with less than a 4% recurrence rate of back pain.
What happens if I’m not consistent with my appointments?
While studies have shown 86% positive results utilizing Spinal Decompression Therapy, this 86% success rate is achieved when a specific protocol is followed. It is the consistency of the Spinal Decompression Therapy that is key to the improvement and elimination of your low back pain. For every missed appointment, your progress and improvement will be significantly compromised.
