The decompression-reduction system offers many patients relief from recurrent back pain associated with herniated or bulging discs. DRS uses true negative pressure to help bulging discs realign and draw back into the proper space. Since there is little or no pressure on the spine during treatment, DRS promotes a healing environment. Once better circulation is restored, vital nutrients flow into the area.
As an outpatient procedure, treatments may vary from 5 to 20 minutes over a four-week period. Patients dealing with herniated, degenerative or protruding discs are most appropriate for DRS. Ask your doctor or therapist to find out if DRS might be beneficial for you. DRS treatments help increase a patient’s range of motion and decrease pain—which improves quality of life and allows them to better complete daily living tasks without significant pain.
