What Exactly Is Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery?

The internal computer of the DRX9000 is programmed by the doctor to target the exact location of your damaged disc for care. During each treatment session, the pulling forces you experience are calculated specifically for you. The DRX9000 on-board computer monitors the decompression forces - 4,000 times per second -- and adjusts them as needed based on your body's response to treatment. This ensures that you experience an accurate and pain-free session.

The Patient Experience

During each treatment session (there will be several), the patient lies on a padded comfortable bed, secured into position by an upper- and lower-body harness. Typically, each session is divided into cycles where spinal decompression forces alternate between a maximum and minimum therapeutic level. The cycling of forces in this manner creates a pumping action that simulates the natural processes responsible for re-nourishing and healing your damaged disc. Most patients experience a gentle stretch in the lumbar spine (or neck). Patients find Spinal Decompression therapy to be quite comfortable and even relaxing. During the session the patient has an opportunity to tune in to a video or music. Few patients may experience mild muscular soreness during treatment, similar to what one might feel when starting a new exercise regimen.

The revolutionary technology behind Spinal Decompression makes it possible for a unique and highly specific force to target the specific damaged disc and problem vertebrae in the spine. The decompression force gently stretches the spine where needed, causing negative pressure to develop in the damaged disc. This causes the disc bulge (or herniation) to move off of the injured nerve and retract back into the disc. At the same time, the negative pressure also draws water, oxygen and nutrients back into the disc, restoring and rejuvenating the disc towards a normal height.

Spinal Decompression is unique in that it heals at the source. It is not a temporal fix. It does not mask symptoms. This is true healing. Your pain diminishes as your disc heals.

There are several decompression systems on the market. The DRX9000 is considered by many doctors to be the leading technology in Spinal Decompression.
