What is DRX9000?
 

The DRX9000 is an innovative technology that uses spinal decompression to treat various spinal conditions. It is being hailed as a state of the art alternative to invasive and risky back surgery. Axiom Worldwide developed the technology and it has received FDA clearance for treatment of back pain. The DRX9000 is effective in treating herniated discs and degenerative disc disease. It has also shown to be effective in treating sciatica. It should be noted that not all patients are good candidates for the DRX9000. Your chiropractor will evaluate each patient independently.

The DRX9000 uses traction to slowly and gently elongate the spine to increase the intervertebral disc spaces. The process is precise, which eliminates the risk for additional injury. The machine is computer controlled and programmed by a trained professional.

The treatment usually takes two weeks of daily sessions, and then 3 weeks of 2-3 sessions. In several clinical trials, 86% of the test subjects reported immediate resolution of their pain following treatment. Of those 86%, 90% reported lasting pain relief beyond 90 days. Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy has been studied and discussed in several academic and industry papers.
