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.

DRX-9000 for lumbar decompression to help bulging, herniated discs




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.
