Spinal Decompression For Bulging and Herniated Disc

 

The pain that comes from a bulging or herniated disc can be absolutely debilitating. The shooting pain and burning can be overwhelming and most people’s #1 priority is to get RELIEF.

Unfortunately a lot of people dealing with a disc condition are really clear on what’s going on inside their body and what true solutions are available.

When a disc herniates there is a mechanical change to the disc that causes it to put pressure on the exiting nerve root. This is what causes the pain.

Many of the treatments that patients seek are designed to alleviate the pain that the pressure on the nerve is causing and NOT actually relieve WHY there is pressure on the nerve.

Epidural injections, pain management, chiropractic, physical therapy, etc are not designed to help restore a disc but are often used as short term pain alleviation.

There are only 2 things that have been shown to truly change a disc.

One is surgery, which most people are doing everything they can to avoid.

The other is true spinal decompression.

Let’s talk about surgery first. There is definitely a time when surgery is unavoidable and necessary but obviously most patients understand there is a risk involved with spinal surgery and will try anything to avoid it. There is also a very large failure rate. So much so that there is an ICD-10 code for FAILED SPINE SURGERY SYNDROME. M96.1. It fails so often there is actually a diagnosis for it. About 50% of the patients we see at Genesis Back & Neck have already had one spine surgery and are trying to avoid another.

Spinal decompression is a very unique procedure in which a DRX-9000 spinal decompression machine is used to target the specific disc causing nerve pressure. The device gently creates a negative pressure allowing the herniation to pull back to the center and over time allowing this disc to actually heal. The best part of the treatment is that it’s comfortable and there is no downtime. Most patients can fall asleep during their treatment. There are over 22 published studies on the DRX-9000 showing its effectiveness with bulging and herniated disc.

Our goal is to create a lasting change with remarkable results for our patients and provide a true solution rather than a short term “band-aid”.
