Can Spinal Decompression Help Degenerative Disc Disease?

Degenerative Disc Disease is fairly common with aging…along with most other degenerative processes. However, it is possible to slow down the progression of spinal disc degeneration and in some cases actually reverse it with nonsurgical spinal decompression.

When the bones of the spine lose their proper alignment, the spinal discs which are in between them wear abnormally…just like your tire tread wears abnormally when the front end of your car is out of alignment.

If this situation is corrected in time it is possible to bring the degenerated disc back to life. Spinal decompression with the DRX9000 or other fine decompression systems can help repair a degenerated disc by elongating the spine, enlarging the disc space, re-positioning the injured spinal disc, strengthening the spinal muscles and ligaments, and re-hydrating the spinal disc by re-establishing fluid and nutrient exchange with the blood stream.

It’s also possible that the spinal disc degeneration is so far advanced that even nonsurgical spinal decompression is not able to help it. It’s possible…but not likely. My experience has been that there is usually some sort of positive change…albeit minor.

Lifestyle factors play a big role also in degenerative disc disease. If you are overweight or obese it makes it much harder to slow down disc degeneration. There is just too much constant stress on the joints and discs. High fat diets rich in animal proteins and processed foods tend to cause ongoing inflammation which can contribute to disc degeneration. Smoking, drugs, and alcohol do not help…and poor sleep and work habits make things worse…as does stress.

So Yes, spinal decompression with the DRX9000 can help degenerative disc disease…often times when all else fails. A healthy lifestyle with plenty of clean food, clean air, and exercise will help create the right conditions for decompression to achieve a favorable outcome.

I have seen patients with chronic back pain and sciatica due to long standing disc disease and spinal degeneration return to active lifestyles after only a few months on the DRX9000…amazing.

Will the DRX9000 help your degenerative disc disease? Maybe. You need to find out if you qualify medically first…not all back pain patients do.
