Why Does Spinal Decompression Really Work?

Over the years now, I’ve seen so many copy cats, others who claim the use decompression but don’t, and people who claim they can get the effects of decompression with simple exercises.

My feeling is that anything that can help your back is great, but for lasting back pain relief DRX 9000 decompression has been the best overall tool.

I’ve used traction, flexion distraction, exercises and more to help disc pain patients. They often help, but give only temporary relief. I will note, however, that after someone has completed a course of the non-surgical spinal decompression, those prior noted treatments will often work very well to maintain the low back. The reason is because once we finally get some good healing in the disc with the DRX, then other treatments, treatments that didn’t work well in the past, may actually work.

To answer the question above: spinal decompression works because when it decompre
sses the spine it actually creates a suction effect pulling disc material back into place. Once we do this regularly we can get the disc to stay and heal.

So, I often have patients do certain exercises or follow up with traction, inversion, or chiropractic care, but for a patient with a chronic disc problem or severe back pain the DRX 9000 treatment cannot be matched.
