Yes, inversion is like traction. The DRX 9000 Spinal Decompression treatment is a much more advanced form of traction. In no way am I comparing the decompression to traction. Spinal decompression is really much different, it actually creates a suction effect at the disc level, helping to pull the discs back into place. Traction is simply a stretch which distracts the spine, opening it up.
I’ve had multiple patients that tried traction when they first injured their backs with no results. However, decompression did the trick, and relieved their back pain.
The reason I’m mentioning inversion traction is because there are times when it does give good results. What I have found is that once a patient is done with decompression, using an inversion machine periodically helps maintain patients low backs. Keeping your back maintained and healthy is extremely important. After doing DRX 9000 decompression you may be 100% and never need treatment again, but why take a chance? Many people use chiropractic, periodic decompression treatments, or an inversion table to maintain their back. It’s a smart thing to do and I highly recommend it.
