Three ways the drx9000 helps heal the intervertebral disc


The DRX-9000 stretch­es open the space between the ver­te­brae.  This will min­i­mize the pres­sure on your discs and give your disc bulge a chance to unbulge.  In fact, research shows that after a series of treat­ments with the DRX-9000, the inter­ver­te­bral disc space can increase, and a bulging or her­ni­at­ed disc can be repo­si­tioned alto­geth­er or reduced in size.

A DRX-9000 ses­sion flush­es flu­ids into and out of the disc space.  The disc has a poor blood sup­ply, and it only gets its nour­ish­ment indi­rect­ly — through pas­sive dif­fu­sion. The DRX-9000 uses inter­mit­tent cycles of high­er and low­er stretch to speed up the turnover of nutri­ents and meta­bol­ic by-prod­ucts.  This allows for disc heal­ing and regen­er­a­tion.

Inter­ver­te­bral disc


By stretch­ing the fibers of the inter­ver­te­bral disc, the DRX-9000 stim­u­lates the tissue’s heal­ing process. The effect is anal­o­gous to the way you devel­op strength with weight-train­ing.  Lift­ing a heavy weight actu­al­ly breaks down the your mus­cle fibers.  This serves as a heal­ing stim­u­lus, and the mus­cle rebuilds stronger than before.  The same effect takes place in the inter­ver­te­bral disc after a DRX-9000 ses­sion.

As a result of these three mech­a­nisms, I’ve been able to help many low back pain patients restore their spine to health with a lum­bar decom­pres­sion treat­ment pro­gram with the DRX-9000.
