Spinal Decompression for Degenerative Disc Disease in Newport Beach, CA

Spinal Decompression for Degenerative Disc Disease | Chiropractor in Newport Beach, CA

Degenerative disc disease is a condition that can lead to chronic back pain and discomfort, but there’s a common misconception that once a disc is degenerated, nothing can be done to alleviate the condition. However, there’s a valuable perspective and treatment option that offers hope.

The Sponge Analogy for Degenerative Discs

Imagine the discs between your vertebrae as sponges used in the kitchen. When a sponge is hydrated, it’s thick, wet, and pliable—similar to how healthy discs function in your spine, providing cushioning and flexibility. Now, envision leaving that sponge on the counter for a week. It becomes thin, dry, and brittle, but crucially, the amount of sponge material hasn’t changed; it’s merely dehydrated. This analogy applies directly to your spinal discs. Degeneration doesn’t mean the disc has disappeared; it has simply lost hydration and pliability.

The Solution: Spinal Decompression with the DRX 9000

At Genesis Back and Neck in Newport Beach, we specialize in a revolutionary treatment approach for degenerative disc disease: spinal decompression using the DRX 9000 system. This state-of-the-art technology is designed to specifically target and decompress the affected discs. The process gently stretches the spine, creating negative pressure within the disc. This negative pressure promotes the absorption of fluid and nutrients back into the disc, rehydrating and revitalizing it, much like soaking the dried-out sponge to restore its thickness and pliability.

How Spinal Decompression Provides Relief

By reintroducing hydration and nourishment to the degenerated disc, spinal decompression with the DRX 9000 alleviates the pressure on surrounding nerves. This relief from nerve compression is what contributes to a significant reduction in back pain and an improvement in overall spinal health. Patients who undergo this treatment often experience relief from the persistent pain that degenerative disc disease can cause.
