Rehab Services DRX9000 Spinal Decompression


Stop The Pain Before It Stops You!

What is DRX9000?
The DRX9000 is an innovative spinal decompression device
that was designed by a specialized team of engineers to meet the needs of today's patient and offer patients the quality of life they deserve. With our focus on innovation, the BVRMC Rehabilitation Team is committed to utilizing the latest cutting-edge technology to improve the quality of life for those suffering from herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and other low back pain.

Common Causes of Back Pain
Your central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord. Protecting the spinal cord are vertebrae (bones), protected in turn by discs made up of a gelatin-like substance. Functioning as a shock absorber to the bones, discs undergo tremendous amounts of stress, often resulting in a herniation or "bulging" of the disc. Herniations, or bulging of the discs are protrusions from the disc that press on surrounding nerves, causing pain or numbness. Degeneration is caused by wear and tear on the disc. These are the most common causes of lower back pain.
