How Spinal Decompression Works

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is administered using a sophisticated FDA-cleared machine called the DRX9000 that gently stretches the spine and decompresses the discs. Unlike traction devices, spinal decompression machines are able to sense your muscles’ resistance to the pulling forces and are able to reduce and then cycle the stretch so that your body does not resist the tension. Amazingly the spinal decompression machine is able to do this with little to no discomfort to the patient. This is because of the machine’s ability to comfortably remove the pressure on the discs so they are finally able to heal-much like what happens when you take the pressure off of a sprained ankle. A key factor in non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is slow, controlled stretching. This creates a vacuum that naturally draws bulging disc material back into place. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy (NSSD) is a relatively new non-surgical treatment for most spinal disc problems. It is the only non-surgical treatment currently available that is able to sufficiently relieve pressure on the disc, thus allowing the body to naturally heal itself. It is, by far, the least risky treatment offered.

NSSD is rapidly becoming the treatment of choice (with an over 80% success rate for disc conditions). After a great deal of research, we chose to use the DRX9000®.  Watch the video below to learn more about this amazing FDA- Cleared machine.


At Bay Area Disc Centers, we specialize in advanced, non-surgical disc restoration therapy to help patients who are suffering from severe neck or lower back pain due to sciatica, degenerative disc disease, and disc bulge/herniation and spinal stenosis. To accomplish this goal, we have developed an eight-week treatment plan that includes our five-step “S.P.I.N.E.” approach.

It’s important to note that we only use the most advanced equipment for spinal decompression and chiropractic care. Dr. Ferrigno makes a point of remaining on top of the latest technologies and continues to go through the most extensive training that follow the protocols set up by the International Medical Advisory Board on spinal decompression. These technologies and protocols are then put to use to provide you with pain relief and treatment solutions.

5 Step “S.P.I.N.E.” Approach

Spinal Decompression

We use a state-of-the-art spinal decompression table, known as the DRX9000, to apply gentle stretching pressure to the affected disc. The system senses muscle tension several thousand times per second to prevent muscle spasm and tightening.

Physiotherapy (Deep Tissue Laser, Electric Muscle Stimulation, Heat/Ice)

To increase the rate of recovery, we use anti-inflammatory treatments, including ice, muscle stimulation, and cold laser therapy. The Multi Radiance Technology laser helps stimulate the healing response within the cells to better improve circulation and decrease pain.

Inter-segmental Mobilization (Chiropractic Adjustment)

We have a team of highly trained chiropractic physicians to provide gentle adjustments using specific force measures, mobilizing joints, pain relief, and motion restoration techniques for patients.

Nutritional Support

The proper diet and nutrition program can help eliminate toxins from the system and decrease both pain and inflammation to promote healing.
