DRX9000™& DRX9000C™ Treatments

DRX9000™ Spinal Decompression treatment for low back pain consists of 20 sessions over the course of six weeks. Each session of decompression lasts for about 30 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of muscle stimulation and ice packs to calm the region. We incorporate chiropractic adjustments and other forms of therapy to assist in your overall healing.

The DRX9000C treatment for neck and/or shoulder/arm symptoms consists of 18 sessions over six weeks.

We provide lumbar decompression five times per week for the first two weeks, three times each week for the 3rd and 4th weeks and twice each week for the 5th and 6th weeks. During the first two weeks, you will wear a lumbosacral support and will be able to perform daily activities as identified by Dr. Andrews. At the beginning of the 3rd week, we add lower back stretches to the program and encourage walks of short duration. By the 5th week, you will also begin to perform stabilization exercises as instructed.

Cervical decompression occurs three times a week for six weeks. We will provide you with a special pillow that you will sleep on. We begin neck stretches after 3 weeks and neck strengthening exercises in the following weeks. We will also review home care instructions with you during your initial visit.

Most patients describe decompression as a gentle stretching or a sensation of pressure in the neck or lower back. The treatment is usually painless. You are not required to hold on; therefore, there is no risk of injury to the neck, upper back, shoulders or arms.
