We have been providing spinal decompression therapy in San Francisco for over 8 years now. The machine we use is the DRX9000c.
Cervical decompression systems are designed and built to treat bulging and herniated cervical discs without drugs or surgery.
The C7 disc bulge is one of the most common conditions we treat with the DRX9000c. The C7 disc is the disc at the very bottom of the cervical spine in between the C7 and T1 vertebra. The C7 disc will often bulge as an adaption to things like abnormal stresses from poor posture over time, injury (sports, auto accident, repetitive strain) or degenerative disc disease…to name a few.
Typically, a bulging disc in the neck will eventually herniate if left untreated. This is why it’s so important to get the right kind of treatment as soon as the disc bulge is diagnosed.
Cervical disc decompression treats bulging and herniated disc by elongating the spine, re-positioning the disc, enlarging the disc space, and creating a negative pressure, which actually pulls the bulging disc material back to the center of the disc.
The treatment protocol is 20 sessions done as follows:
5 times for 2 weeks, 3 times for 2 weeks, 2 times for 2 weeks.
The sessions are about 50 minutes. You receive cervical decompression for 30 minutes, then 10 minutes of muscle stimulation, then 10 minutes of ice.
Bulging cervical discs at C7 can cause symptoms like arm pain and weakness, loss of grip strength, numbness and tingling in the arm and hand, night pain, and headaches.
Success rates are high with the DRX9000c.
If you have been diagnosed with a bulging or herniated disc in the neck and would like to fined out if you are a candidate for cervical decompression with the DRX9000c we would like to hear from you.
