Can Disc Herniations Be Repaired Naturally?

Most of the herniated disc patients we consult with about the DRX9000 are searching for a non-surgical solution for a herniated or bulging disc in their spine. Some have been told they need back surgery…some “you just need to learn to live with the pain”. They have been told that a disc herniation is not repairable.

Living with severe back pain or sciatica is not your only option.

A typical herniated disc pain patient has been suffering for years…and tells us they have tried every back or neck pain treatment under the sun. Acupuncture, physical therapy, pain medications, muscle relaxers, cortisone injections, inversion tables, chiropractic care, massage…you name it…they have tried it. Nothing seems to work…they are very skeptical to say the least.

So, when we explain how the DRX9000 seeks to re-position the herniated spinal disc matter back to the center of the disc where it belongs by creating a “negative pressure”, they look at us kind of strange.

Spinal Decompression with the DRX9000 and DRX9000c is based on the premise that the body knows where it’s parts are supposed to be and there is a natural tendency for them to be there. Decompression helps the body do what it wants to do…put things back where they belong.

If a spinal disc is injured from trauma or abnormal wear and tear over time…it can lose it’s normal relationship with the vertebrae above and below. It can get locked into this position and “pop” like a water balloon. There is a jelly part in the center of the disc that can leak out onto the spinal cord and spinal nerves…this is called a disc herniation. And yes…it can be repaired naturally.

Heck…most of us have disc herniations and don’t even know it.  And…intervertebral discs herniate and repair themselves all the time. Spinal discs are living tissue unlike the water balloon…and the cells of living tissue are always dying and being replaced by new living tissue.

However…if the spine is out of alignment and the discs have abnormal stresses on them, the new disc tissue is not healthy and is prone to re-injury. The disc loses height, motion, and flexibility.

Spinal decompression therapy is able to stretch the spine ligaments and elongate the spine. The DRX9000 enlarges the disc space and helps the spine to move into a more normal position taking the disc along with it. The pumping action of the DRX9000 on the spinal disc helps to re-establish fluid exchange between the injured disc and the bloodstream. This will often restore lost disc height and improve function.

Hey…don’t think for a second that the DRX9000 is a Magic Bullet…because it’s not. Nonsurgical spinal decompression is actually a lot of work. Each session is about an hour with the muscle stimulation and ice you do when you get off the machine.  And you need to do about 20-24 sessions on average. And there is quite a bit of home care and exercises.

So sure…disc decompression can help to fix your herniated disc naturally…but there is a chance it wont do anything. That’s right…it’s possible to go through the entire decompression process and feel the same. It’s possible…but it’s not likely.

The other thing is…not all herniated disc patients qualify medically for cervical disc decompression or lumbar decompression therapy. You have to be checked by a decompression doctor to find out if you are a candidate.

My Take: If you have been diagnosed with a cervical or lumbar disc herniation and you feel you have nowhere to turn…you should consider spinal decompression with the DRX9000 or DRX9000c. It might just give you your life back!

  1. Well, I do think that it is very essential for us to be conscious about our health and this sure helped me a lot. Now i know what to do first and probably would end up considering spinal decompression with the DRX9000 or DRX9000c because it’s very hard for me to take chances especially at my age. Now I’m one step further for a healthier body.

    1. We have been using the DRX9000 in San Francisco for 6 years now. The DRX9000c for about 5 years. Non-surgical Spinal Decompression has changed the way we treat chronic back and neck pain.

  2. I could actually relate to this article, because I feel so much discomfort on my lower back. I find this very interesting. I also understand that this will benefit me a lot, but do you have an idea on how much will it cost to have this done? I am very eager to have more information about this so please kindly email me your response.

    1. You can feel free to tour our San Francisco Spinal Decompression Center any time. I have sent you information on the DRX9000.

  3. Now I must say that this is a very remarkable way of “easing the pain”. I am 53 years old now and I’m sick and tired of taking all of those medications. I will take the risk and hopefully this will work for me.

  4. I trust that this information will cure my dad’s sever back pain. I hope if he gives this a try in the future he will not get fed up due to the sessions and exercises. I have full confidence that this will work out for his situation. If only he could visit San Francisco Spinal Decompression.

  5. Who wants to live with pain? Well I certainly don’t want to live with pain forever that’s why this is totally a life saver! I need to know more about how this works for me. I was actually considering to have acupuncture done thinking that it would help, but this surely made a good point.

  6. This is so amazing! I know that it’s not a “magic bullet”, but what we have here is as close as to reality that cure is just within our reach. Medical science is getting better and better everytime, so keep those articles and information coming!

  7. “It’s good to know that there’s an alternative to those old methods for disc herniation. Spinal decompression seems like it is the future for back pain. Never again will they have to “live with pain”.

  8. “I was told by my friend to check this one and I asked him is it really that good and worth my time? Then after seeing this link, I called him back and said this is more than I expected. Great blog!

  9. “I never seen such great topic and I love how it was written. So inspiring and that is the main reason why I kept on coming back to read more from this link. I will further recommend this to my friends that have chronic back pain, thanks!

  10. “Interesting! I never thought that this would help me a lot and come to think of it I can also apply it for my own. I have been experiencing sharp pains on my lower back and was told by one of my doctors that spinal decompression therapy is an option for me. You have helped me a lot to make my final decision. I would love to visit your back pain clinic in San Francisco. Thank you.

  11. That has always been my understanding, that if you had a herniated disk, you were probably going to have pain for the rest of your life, and had to learn to try to manage the pain.

    This is encouraging to hear that there is a treatment to try that might actually correct the problem.

  12. The information for sciatica pain relief and natural therapies on your san francisco spinal decompression blog is excellent. I’ll advocate this web site as we provide exercises for sciatica and back pain as well. Thank You!
