Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

Yorkville Spinal Decompression Therapy:
Non-Surgical Relief for Back Pain

At Advanced Physical Medicine in Yorkville, we combine cutting edge technology with a wide range of holistic treatments designed to put the body in a position to heal itself from the inside out. Our spinal decompression therapy is a prime example of how we put technology to rehabilitate herniated disks and other severe cases of lower back pain. Lumbar spine decompression has given many of our patients a new lease on life; particularly for many patients with very severe and difficult-to-treat back problems. In some cases, it has helped patients avoid back surgery, while in other cases it has helped patients recover from back surgery more easily.

DRX9000 Spinal Decompression in Yorkville:
A Non-Surgical Back Pain Alternative

Our Yorkville DRX9000 Spinal Decompression unit has been instrumental as a disk herniation treatment and as a lower back pain treatment for many patients. It has helped patients who have suffered years of pain, both from the effects of poor posture, and for those undergoing rehabilitation for car accident injuries, sports injuries and other personal injuries involving the back. This FDA-approved treatment is covered by more and more insurance plans, mostly because there are frequent cases in which spinal decompression therapy can eliminate the need for complicated and expensive back surgery.

Yorkville non-surgical spinal decompressionDRX9000 Spinal Decompression works by non-invasively removing pressure from within the spine and enabling the spine to start healing itself from the inside out. We carefully secure a patient to the decompression table, which then takes the spine through a series of stretching and releasing motions, all guided by computer and supervised by a physician. The gentle traction force causes negative pressure within the disks between the vertebrae, actually stretching them back into their normal shape. This creates a vacuum effect inside the disks, which rushes fresh circulation, nutrients and fluids into the disks to restore their original shape. This pressure release makes it an effective disk herniation treatment because helping the disks also relieves pressure on nerves, which can lead to widespread pain relief.

Spinal decompression therapy is also very comfortable for most patients. While some patients may be apprehensive about being strapped to a table, the vast majority report that the pain relief comes almost immediately. We have even had some patients fall asleep during lumbar spine decompression treatments. They reported that they had been in pain for so long that the sudden pain relief relaxed them to the point where they were finally able to rest comfortably.

We urge patients looking for a non-surgical solution to their lower back pain to call us at  (630) 553-2111 to set up an appointment for lower back pain treatments.
