DRX9000™ Spinal Decompression Overview
Chronic back pain and neck pain affects millions of Americans each year. When the pain becomes so severe it alters an individual’s daily life, certain physicians will recommend a painful surgical procedure with a lengthy rehabilitation program. The physicians at Pain Recovery Center of Tyler, pain management practice in Tyler, Texas, understand not all patients desire to undergo surgery, and are proud to offer the DRX9000™ spinal decompression system. Spinal decompression is a non-invasive, effective treatment option for numerous spine conditions, including herniated discs, bulging discs, facet joint injuries and degenerative disc disease.
Back Pain Overview
Back pain is found more commonly in adults aged 35-55 years, even though it can affect individuals at any age. Back pain can occur suddenly or over an extended amount of time. Acute back pain is characterized by pain that lasts for five weeks or less. Individuals may wake up with pain one day or twist in a way that brings it on. Chronic back pain is characterized by pain that lasts 12 weeks or longer and is not alleviated by common self-care items such as rest, heat/ice and nonprescription medications.
What is DRX9000™ Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a treatment option used by leading pain management specialists to treat chronic back and neck conditions. Pain Recovery Center of Tyler now uses the technology to treat failed back surgery syndrome, degenerative disc disease, facet joint injuries, sciatica, bulging discs and herniated discs. Many of these conditions are caused by a decrease in the spaces that are present between the bones of the spine. When the spaces become smaller, the nerves that control the arms, legs and important organs can become pinched. The pinching of the nerves causes many patients to experience chronic pain, numbness, tingling and weakness. The DRX9000 spinal decompression system provides symptom relief without surgery by stretching pinched spinal joints and relieving unwanted pressure on the spinal nerves.
The DRX9000 spinal decompression system is a cutting-edge machine that safely, effectively and gently stretches compressed joint spaces, leading to decreased pressure on the spinal nerves and discs. The gradual stretching also allows for an increased flow of oxygen and healing nutrients to reach the discs, often contributing to improved spinal joint function.
Pain Recovery Center of Tyler continues to offer the most innovative treatments for pain, including chronic back pain and neck pain. The pain management specialists are dedicated to finding the best solution for each patient, whether through new or traditional treatments.
