Degenerative Disc Disease

As the human body grows older, spinal discs may get worn out, break down, or degenerate leading to what is called Degenerative Disc Disease. This ailment occurs within the discs of the lumbar region (lower back) and cervical region (neck). This disease leads to a loss of vital fluids in the discs resulting in them becoming thinner, closing the space between the human vertebrae.

The degeneration process usually begins with small cracks of the outer shell of the disc. The cracks cause the disc to bulge, signaling the start of the disease. People who are vulnerable to this ailment are individuals who smoke cigarettes; people who engage in heavy physical activities like heavy lifting and overweight people.

The Spinal Decompression treatment relaxes and stretches the spine slowly and eliminated the downward forces of gravity to create a space for vital oxygen and nutrients to flow back into the affected discs and commence the healing process. The process is simple too – each session consists of patients lying down on the DRX9000 machine for 24 minutes. While going through your session you could relax and meditate, read, or even take a short nap – it’s really stress-free.

Spinal decompression treatment is cleared by the FDA, comfortable, gentle, and has no risks or side effects. It is a procedure we have successfully carried out multiple times in the treatment of disk damage with glowing testimonials from our patients.


“I have been seeing Dr. Doug now for a few months for some lower back/hip pain!! Well much to my surprise it started help my very first visit. I have been going 3 times a week and can tell when I have to miss how much it’s making a difference! I went in last week and was having some problems with a certain area, Dr. Doug asked how I was doing and when I told him I was having some issues he could tell where and went straight to work!!

Spinal Decompression slowly relaxes and stretches the spine, removing the downward forces of gravity and creating a vacuum that allows oxygen and nutrients to flow back into the disks and begin the healing process. Patients simply lie down on the state of the art DRX9000 for 24 minutes per session. Some people read, relax or meditate — others have been known to fall asleep!

This FDA-cleared procedure is gentle and comfortable — with NO risks and NO side effects.
