"Oh, my aching back!" is, unfortunately an all-to-common expression. However, it may be a complaint that you can banish from your vocabulary through Spinal Decompression Therapy, a non-invasive form of treatment that helps alleviate the pain and symptoms of neck and back pain, sciatica, herniated disc and spinal stenosis.

Technology and holistic treatments become partners for our team of treatment specialists at Advanced Physical Medicine of Yorkville. Our comprehensive and professional approach to minimizing our patients' pain, restoring range of movement, and encouraging full recovery from injury includes a disc-herniation treatment that helps the spine heal itself "from the inside out." The FDA-approved procedure is also covered by an increasing number of insurance plans, partly because it can reduce the need for more-expensive and more invasive surgical treatment. It is just one example of the innovative medical philosophy of our treatment center.

How is the decompression accomplished?

DRX-9000 Spinal Decompression effectively reduces pressure within the spine through a progression of stretching and releasing motions. There is almost no pain involved; small patients report immediate relief during the treatment session which involves being secured to our decompression table. The therapy is regulated by computer and supervised by the attending physician. Gentle traction causes negative pressure on the spinal discs between vertebrae, and creates a "vacuum effect" which increases circulation and reduces inflammation, supplying fresh nutrients and fluids to the area. It encourages discs to regain their normal shape and also relieves pressure on associated nerves, leading to further pain relief.

Because the therapy is so effective at relieving chronic pain, it is frequently employed in an effort to counteract the effects of long-term poor posture and bad habits. As part of the treatment, our team will offer guidance on the proper ways to stand, sit, walk, bend and lift in an effort to forestall future problems.

When back pain is a result of a sports injury, on-the-job injury, or car accident, or if you experience back and nerve pain that seems to come and go for no reason, the DRS-9000 therapy is effective at promoting complete healing. However, it should not be considered a one-time "miracle cure." It is best employed as part of a comprehensive and continuing personal treatment regimen. Because the Spinal Decompression Therapy is so gentle, it may also used on patients who are recuperating from surgery. If you experience degenerative disc disease, numbness in a hand or arm, or unexplained neck and back pain, you may be a candidate for this kind of non-invasive treatment. We have prepared a FAQ page to help to explore the possibilities.
