An Overview of Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression is an effective way for patients to alleviate chronic back pain or neck pain without undergoing back surgery. This pain management option, available at Pain Recovery Center of Tyler in Tyler, Texas, effectively treats neck pain and back pain resulting from bulging and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica and even a failed back surgery. The pain physicians at Pain Recovery Center of Tyler can provide patients with lumbar (back) decompression and/or cervical (neck) decompression using the DRX9000™ system.
How is Lumbar Pain Treated with the DRX9000™?
In the past, a patient suffering from back pain may have been prescribed pain medications, instructed to refrain from physical activities, referred for physical therapy, received injections and when the pain was still present, they were sent for back surgery. The DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ can alleviate back pain caused by:
- Herniated discs
- Bulging discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Failed back surgery
- Posterior facet syndrome
- And much more
How is Cervical Pain Treated with the DRX9000™?
The human neck is capable of moving the head in many directions- a forward motion, a backward motion, side to side rotation and tilting to either shoulder. Neck pain can be caused by a variety of items including injuries and accidents, as a result of getting older and daily activities. Poor posture, stress and tension all affect the body, resulting in pain and stiffness in some patients. The DRX9000C™ cervical system provides a complete approach to the successful treatment of neck pain, including treatment of herniated discs, bulging discs and degenerative disc disease.
