Spinal Decompression Q & A

What is nonsurgical spinal decompression?

Nonsurgical spinal decompression alleviates pain due to compressed nerves by gently stretching your spine to increase space between vertebrae. The extra space reduces or eliminates pressure on the nerves and allows more blood to flow into the discs.

Damaged discs have a better chance of healing as blood brings oxygen, nutrients, and healing agents like stem cells and platelets into the tissues. Additionally, stretching the spine creates a type of negative pressure in the disc. Much like a medicine dropper sucks up water, the herniated part of the disc may be pulled back inside the disc.

What back problems benefit from spinal decompression?

Spinal nerves become pinched due to many back problems. With the exception of a herniated disc, spinal decompression doesn’t directly treat the underlying back problem. However, boosting blood flow and relieving pinched nerves significantly lowers pain caused by:

  • Sciatica
  • Herniated disc
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Posterior facet syndrome

Most patients suffering from chronic lower back pain and sciatica find relief with spinal decompression.

What happens during spinal decompression?

The doctors at SoCal Regenerative Medical Clinics provide spinal decompression using the most advanced equipment available: the DRX9000™. During your session, you’ll lie on the comfortable treatment table, where you’re fitted into a support system that stabilizes your body.

Your doctor sets the controls on the DRX9000 based on your back condition. Therapeutic factors such as the amount of pull, traction angle, and the length of time are all adjustable. Then the state-of-the-art traction system built into the DRX9000 stretches your spine using gentle movement.

You shouldn’t feel any pain during your spinal decompression treatment, but it’s good to know that you have some control with a patient safety switch. One session generally lasts about 30-45 minutes, but it depends on your condition.

To achieve optimal results, most patients have a series of spinal decompression treatments on the DRX9000, but like all aspects of your care at SoCal Regenerative Medical Clinics, your therapy is customized to meet your health needs.

Spinal decompression can help provide long-lasting relief from your back pain. To learn more about the innovative DRX9000 or to schedule an appointment, use the convenient online booking feature or call SoCal Regenerative Medical Clinics.
