What is the DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™?
The DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ is designed to provide pain relief for compressive and degenerative injuries of the spine. Through the application of spinal decompressive forces to these injuries, the DRX9000™ has given patients relief from back pain and has allowed them to resume the activities they love. The DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ provides relief of pain and symptoms associated with herniated discs, bulging or protruding intervertebral discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, and sciatica. The therapy is non-invasive and non-surgical. The theory behind spinal decompression is a process whereby forces are applied to the spine in a manner that maximizes spinal elongation. Spinal elongation is maximized when paraspinal muscles, the muscles that guard the spine from injury, are relaxed. Learn more about how this can be used for disc herniation.
How does the DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ work?
Spinal decompression on the DRX9000™ involves application of forces logarithmically to elongate the spine without causing the muscles that guard the spine to contract. The technology required to apply spinal decompressive forces is very advanced. Engineering research and development efforts involved in the evolution of the DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ have been ongoing since 2001! The DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ utilizes high-speed treatment computers to calculate the logarithmic spinal decompression treatment curve for each patient. A servo-motor / servo amplifier (“servo-motion system”) takes the logarithmic curve and applies the forces to the patient. The servo-amplifier constantly checks (several thousand times per second) and corrects the servo-motor’s movement. Measurement devices inside the DRX9000™ monitor changes in decompressive force experienced by each patient. All of this data is constantly fed back into the treatment computers. The treatment computers constantly calculate corrections and ensure the therapy is true to each patient’s logarithmic curve. This constant monitoring, measuring, and correcting process is called a Nested Closed-Loop Feedback System. This methodology is one of the hallmarks of the DRX™ technology suite.
