DRX 9000 Spinal Decompression
an Alternative to Spinal Surgery

Elite Performance Health Center offers the latest cutting edge technology in the non-surgical treatment of serious chronic lower back pain and sciatica. Our commitment to offering the highest quality of care resulted in the addition of the FDA cleared Spinal Decompression technology for the treatment of back pain due to:

  • Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Herniated and/or bulging discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • A relapse or failure following surgery
  • Spinal Stenosis

At Elite Performance Health Center, we are dedicated to improving the health and function of our patients. We do this by combining traditional chiropractic care with state-of-the-art technology to deliver an unprecedented level of service. Our results speak for themselves.

In the past, a patient suffering from disc problems usually was given pain medications, instructed to refrain from physical activities, referred for physical therapy, and when they weren’t progressing they were sent for spinal surgery. Conservative chiropractic care proved very helpful in many cases, yet there have been some cases when surgery seemed to be the only other option… until now.

Today, you don’t have to live with that pain anymore. Thanks to the concerted efforts of a team of top physicians and medical engineers, DRX 9000 Spinal Decompression was developed to effectively treat lower back pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or deteriorated discs. Spinal Decompression not only significantly reduces back pain in many patients, but also enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles.

 

Has the DRX 9000 Treatment Proven to be Effective?
Yes. In a recent outcome study by T. Gionnis (submitted to the Journal of Musculoskeletal Medicine), the DRX 9000 treatment was successful for 86% of the 219 patients…with treatment success defined by a reduction of pain to 0 or 1 on the pain scale.

How does the DRX 9000 separate each vertebra and allow for decompression at a specific level?
Decompression is achieved by using a specific combination of lumbar positioning and varying the degree and intensity of force. The key to producing this decompression is the gentle pull that is created by a logarithmic curve. When distractive forces are generated on a logarithmic curve the typical proprioceptor response is avoided.
How does the DRX 9000 treatment differ from ordinary spinal traction? 
 
Traction is helpful at treating some of the conditions resulting from herniation or degeneration, though, traction cannot address the source of the problem. The DRX 9000 creates a negative pressure or a vacuum inside the disc. This effect causes the disc to pull in the herniation and the increase in negative pressure also causes the flow of blood and nutrients back into the disc allowing the body's natural fibroblastic response to heal the injury and re-hydrate the disc. Traction and inversion tables, at best, can lower the intradiscal pressure from a +90 to a +30 mmHg. The DRX 9000 is clinically proven to reduce the intradiscal pressure to between a -150 to -200 mmHg. Traction triggers the body's normal response to stretching by creating painful muscle spasms that worsen the pain in affected area.

 

 Can the DRX 9000 be used for patients that have had spinal surgery?

In most cases the DRX 9000 treatment is not contraindicated for patients that have had spinal surgery. In fact many patients have found success with the DRX 9000 after a failed back surgery.
 
 
“I have spent the last year in and out of Dr.’s offices for severe Low Back and Leg Pain and I’ve been on all kinds of meds. I drove for 3 hours up and back from Emery Utah for DRX treatments and it has been worth every minute…I finally feel so much better. Thank you!”
