Spinal Decompression

Woman on adjusting tableMany of our patients have been excited about the fantastic results they received after using Spinal Decompression.

Spinal Decompression is an innovative therapy used for the management of chronic low back pain and sciatica. Non-surgical and drug-free, this therapy has successfully been used by many. Patients can get relief from their low back pain which is caused by the following:

  • Sciatica
  • Herniated/Bulging Discs
  • Severe neck and back pain
  • Arthritis (Degenerative Joint or Disc Disease)
  • Pain into the arms or legs
  • Post surgical patients
  • Spinal Stenosis

A range of spinal conditions is caused by compression to the spinal vertebrae. This compression puts pressure on spinal nerves, causing irritation. Compression also can tear or rupture spinal discs. When that happens, the soft disc material that separates each spinal bone can be damaged. Pressure due to weight, trauma from an accident and other causes can compound the pressure on a disc that has deteriorated.

In severe cases, the soft pulpy center of the disc can escape, which can cause considerable pain. Since discs are always under weight-bearing pressure, they tend to heal slowly. By gently “stretching” your spine, we help alleviate pressure and boost healing. This therapy is called disc decompression.

The DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™

Always seeking to give patients the most advanced care, we offer Spinal Decompression with the DRX9000. This system is designed to provide pain relief for compressive and degenerative and compressive injuries of the spine. Through the application of spinal decompressive forces to these injuries, it has given patients relief from chronic back and neck pain. The system has allowed them to resume the activities they love.

The DRX9000 provides relief of pain and symptoms associated with sciatica, scoliosis, herniated discs, bulging or protruding intervertebral discs, degenerative disc disease, and posterior facet syndrome. The therapy is non-surgical and non-invasive.

What to Expect

You first will lie down on the DRX9000. Then, very gradually, we’ll stretch your spine. And then relax it. Stretch and relax. Our patients often express that this tractioning process is pleasant, even relaxing. Because they don’t feel that they have to “guard” their spine, each sequence helps the damaged disc get nourishment, flush out cellular waste and experience reduced pressure.

Healing then can begin. Spinal Decompression not only dramatically reduces the back pain experienced by many patients, but it also allows them to get back to their active lifestyles.

Combining Spinal Decompression and Chiropractic

At Ballantyne Advanced Chiropractic, we combine traditional chiropractic care with Spinal Decompression. That combination gives you the fastest and most effective care possible.

Many of our patients have been enthusiastic about the incredible results they received after getting Spinal Decompression. Previously, all of these patients had been given medication. They also received physical therapy or were told they would require surgery. While we can’t guarantee that those with severe cases won’t ever need surgery, we can promise that we will do our best to help you explore all of your other options first.
