Cervical Decompression Therapy in NYC using the DRX-9000 Spinal Decompression Machine
Spinal decompression is a restorative technique specifically designed to relieve pressure within the spine. When one or more vertebrae or discs are misaligned, out of balance or damaged, nerve impingement can occur, resulting in discomfort and pain that can be experienced throughout the body, not only in the back.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is an extremely effective treatment protocol that safely and painlessly restores the spine’s natural alignment and eliminates excessive pressure on the nerves, which is the root cause of health issues and pain
When patients experience pain in the neck area, it is due to impinged nerves in the cervical spine in the majority of cases.
Cervical spine imbalances and deformities are quite common in patients with busy lifestyles and long work hours.
Office workers who are tasked with sitting in front of a computer for long periods are at high risk of developing compressed nerves in the cervical area, since it is easy to develop poor posture habits that place excessive pressure on the neck when spending long hours in a seated position doing computer work. Additionally, cervical spine problems are almost always an issue in patients who have been in car accidents (regardless of the severity of the impact) and are popularly referred to as whiplash.
While ailments to the cervical spine are typically reversible and treatable, patients will obtain the best results if the condition is detected before it can progress and worsen. If a cervical nerve is under duress for extended periods without relief, discomfort and loss of sensation and function will spread to the upper extremities. Patients may experience weakness, numbness or “pins and needles” throughout the arms, hands, and fingers. Extensive nerve damage can be severe and result in permanent loss of responsiveness in the muscles than control the upper extremities. This is why early diagnosis and treatment of cervical spine problems is of extreme importance.
Dr. Steven Shoshany employs the DRX-9000 spinal decompression device in his state-of-the-art NYC physical rehabilitation facility and has helped hundreds of patients avoid risky surgical procedures and obtain permanent relief from neck pain and complications stemming from cervical spine dysfunction. The DRX-9000 is a computer-steered device that painlessly releases spinal pressure by applying gentle traction to the affected structure until the spine’s natural balance is restored and compression on the nerves and other tissues is relieved. Long-term results can be achieved with a handful of sessions, but the specific number of treatments will depend on the acuteness of the damage and each patient’s individual response. There are no known health risks involved with non-surgical spinal decompression and patients undergo treatment while lying comfortably in a relaxed position, allowing the device to work on their spine.
