NEW DRX9000 Spinal Decompression Treatment for Low Back Pain

advanced spinal decompression chicago - drx9000

Non-surgical spinal decompression is motorized traction that may help relieve back pain. It takes effect by stretching and taking pressure off the disks located in the spine. This can take the stress off any nerves and other structures in your spine, releasing any back pain and allows the movement of oxygen, water, and nutrient-rich fluids, which in turn helps the disks in the back heal.

DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ is a non-invasive, non-surgical spinal decompression system designed to provide pain relief to those suffering from compressive and degenerative spinal injuries. The DRX9000 gives patients relief of pain through decompressive forces to any injuries of the spine. This non-surgical procedure allows those living with daily back pain to have quick relief and allow them to continue their normal everyday life, not having to go through the long process and trouble of recovery from surgery, like other procedures.

Spinal Decompression has been the most important medical advance in the non-surgical, noninvasive treatment of back pain in the past 20 years. The patented and exclusive FDA approved Spinal Decompression technology developed by Axiom Worldwide is presently being utilized by neurologists, orthopedic surgeons, chiropractic physicians, family physicians, pain specialists, and physical therapists across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia.

In the past, a patient suffering from disc problems usually was given pain medications, instructed to refrain from physical activities, referred for physical therapy, and when they weren’t progressing they were sent for spinal surgery. Conservative chiropractic care proved very helpful in many cases, yet there have been some cases when surgery seemed to be the only other option… until now.

Today, you don’t have to live with that pain anymore. Thanks to the concerted efforts of a team of top physicians and medical engineers, Spinal Decompression was developed to effectively treat lower back pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or deteriorated discs. Advanced Spine & Sports Care offers you the most advanced medical technology in a private clinic setting. We provide solutions for resolving painful health issues in a personalized and caring manner.

Quite frankly, Spinal Decompression has revolutionized our practice. We now can help patients that prior to Spinal Decompression would have had to live in pain for the rest of their lives. Patients come to us from all over. They come to us when other treatments have failed to give them relief.

Sciatica Nerve Pain Conditions

Sciatica nerve is the longest nerve in the body, and Sciatica Nerve pain, also known as Sciatica, can be a direct cause of a herniated disc and regular disc deterioration. When a disc deteriorates, it can put pressure on the nerves in your spine, and since the Sciatica Nerve is one of the largest, it is very susceptible to enduring pressure. Symptoms of Sciatica Nerve Pain include, but are not limited to, pain starting in the lower back into the side of the legs, numbness, and tingling in your feet or legs.

Spinal Decompression FAQs

What causes low back pain?

DRX9000 - Spinal Decompression Treatments in Chicago IL

Low back pain can be caused by a number of factors from injuries to the effects of aging. The spinal cord is protected by the vertebrae, which are made of bone. Between each vertebra are soft discs with a ligamentous outer layer. These discs function as shock absorbers to protect the vertebra and the spinal cord. Many of the problems that cause back pain are the result of herniation and degeneration of the inter-vertebral disc. Degeneration is a process where wear and tear cause deterioration of the disc. Herniations or bulging of the disc are protrusions from the disc that press on surrounding nerves, causing pain or numbness.

Most patients report a reduction in pain after the first few sessions. Typically, significant improvement is obtained by the second week of treatment.
