NASHUA, N.H., Nov. 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Main Street Wellness and Chiropractic announces that the practice is now offering spinal decompression therapy with the DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System. The DRX9000 is used to treat patients who have been diagnosed with herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, and facet syndrome. Main Street Wellness and Chiropractic is one of the first New Hampshire chiropractic centers to offer spinal decompression therapy with the DRX9000 machine, according to Nashua chiropractor Dr. Jerrilyn Sullivan. Dr. Sullivan says the treatment has been ‘truly life-changing’ for many of the practice’s patients.
Patients seeking Nashua lower back pain relief have a new treatment option with the DRX9000 spinal decompression therapy machine, now available at Main Street Wellness and Chiropractic.
Nashua chiropractors Dr. Jerrilyn Sullivan and Dr. Taryn Terry recommend spinal decompression therapy for non-invasive, drug-free lower back pain management. DRX9000 Decompression Unit is specifically designed to treat chronic low back pain due to injury or degeneration in the lumbar spine.
“Discs in the lumbar spine act as a shock absorber to the bones,” said Dr. Sullivan. “Over time or with injury, discs may dry out or slip out of alignment, compressing nearby nerves. A herniated disc in the lumbar spine is a leading cause for lower back pain. Spinal decompression therapy with the DRX9000 machine is one of the most effective treatment techniques for bringing correct alignment back to the spine, relieving lumbar nerve compression and supporting disc health.”
Treatment typically consists of 20 sessions over a period of six weeks for patients at Main Street Wellness and Chiropractic. Depending on the severity of pain and disc degeneration, the Nashua chiropractors may recommend that patients receive treatment every day for two to five weeks, followed by three times per week, as needed.
A treatment session lasts approximately 30 minutes. During the treatment session, the patient will lie on a comfortable table that is controlled by precise, computerized movements. An upper chest harness secures patients to the table.
Following treatment, patients may receive additionally therapy with a cold pack or electrical muscle stimulation to help the paravertebral muscles consolidate. Dr. Terry says that while some light muscle soreness is common following treatment, this soreness is limited and akin to what a patient might experience during the onset of a new exercise routine.
“In general, most patients find treatment to be comfortable and even relaxing,” said Dr. Terry. “In fact, some patients may be so relaxed during treatment they end up taking a short nap. Limited muscle soreness may occur following treatment. I recommend cold pack application and electrical muscle stimulation to enhance treatment benefits and limit this soreness.”
