Spinal Decompression Toronto

Spinal decompression with the DRX 9000 is used to heal disc bulges, disc herniations, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, sciatica and spinal stenosis.


Healing occurs by a process known as Imbibition, which is similar to a sponge being compressed and released. Spinal discs do not have a blood supply and therefore the only way for them to get nutrition, oxygen and remove waste products is by this process. Essentially, it is the spinal bones above and below the disc that squish like a sponge and release fluid (nourishment) onto the disc.

When a disc is herniated (picture a squished jelly doughnut with the jelly seeping out the side), immense pain ensues due to mass inflammation of the spinal nerve soaked in this jelly.

At this point, Spinal Decompression should be considered especially when other treatments have not achieved desireable results.

According to a number of clinical studies, this machine decreases the disc pressure by up to -160 mm Hg whereas traction, physical therapy, and spinal adjustments are only able to decrease the pressure to 40 mmHg.

Spinal Decompression is used to treat disc bulges, herniations, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, sciatica, and spinal stenosis.

The MAIN POINT – The combination of the DRX 9000 PLUS spinal adjustments, acupuncture and other forms of manual therapy is the best way to manage and in some cases, cure these problems. The majority of our disc herniation patients have been relieved of pain and we strongly recommend you contact us for a complimentary consultation.

For Spinal Decompression therapy in Toronto consult Chiropractor Dr  Adrian Cohen at Toronto’s chiropractor clinic.

Decompression Therapy is a non-invasive procedure that was developed for the treatment of lower back pain caused by disc herniations and degenerative disc disease. The process is effective in relieving low back pain by enlarging intradiscal space, reducing herniation, strengthening outer ligaments to help move herniated areas back into place, and reversing high intradiscal pressures through application of negative pressure. Treatments are often pain relieving and can be so relaxing that patients often fall asleep!
