Spinal Decompression Treatment 972-392-4476
The DRS (Decompression Reduction Stabilization) System was developed through years of clinical research and is the result of the combined efforts of Neurosurgeons, Orthopedic surgeons and biomedical engineers. Following the successful treatment of more than 8,000 patients, FDA clearance was issued in April 1997, and the system became available for medical use in January of 1998.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does the decompression differ from ordinary spinal traction?
Traction is helpful at treating some of the conditions resulting from herniation or degeneration. However, traction cannot address the source of the problem. Disc decompression creates a negative pressure or a vacuum inside the disc. This increase in negative pressure causes the flow of blood and nutrients back into the disc allowing the body's natural fibroblastic response to heal the injury and re-hydrate the disc. Traction and inversion tables, at best, can lower the intradiscal pressure from a +90 to a +30 mmHg. Disc decompression is clinically proven to reduce the intradiscal pressure to between a -100 to -200 mmHg. Traction triggers the body's normal response to stretching by creating painful muscle spasms that worsen the pain in affected area.
How does the DRS separate each vertebra and allow for disc decompression at a specific level?
Decompression is achieved by using a specific combination of lumbar positioning and varying the degree and intensity of force. The key to producing this decompression is the gentle pull that is created by a logarithmic curve. When distractive forces are generated on a logarithmic curve the typical proprioceptor response is avoided. Avoiding this response allows decompression to occur at the targeted area.
How long do treatments last?
Most patients require 16-20 treatments and a customized physical therapy program.
Are results permanent?
Typically additional treatments are not required after the completion of the treatment protocol. However, as with any treatment there are always severe cases that involve particular job/lifestyle activities that may require re-evaluations.
What conditions can and cannot be treated by the DRS?
Non Treatable conditions
1. Spinal tumors
2. Vertebral Fractures
5. Severe medical conditions
