DYNATRONICS DX2 DECOMPRESSION
If you’re like most of the patients we see today, you suffer from back pain, neck pain, or hip and leg pain. And chances are you’ve probably already tried many different treatments, like pain pills, injections, rest, stretches, exercises, physical rehab, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, and maybe even surgery. And if you’re like most people, nothing’s worked. You still suffer with pain and your quality of life is not what it used to be.
This is not surprising since scientific research shows that most pain-relieving treatments aren’t very effective at treating back or neck pain at all.
In my search for a better way to help patients with back and neck pain, I came across a new treatment system for the back and neck. It is safe, drugless, and comfortable. It’s called the Dynatronics DX2 Decompression System.
I’ve found the DX2 System to be an excellent treatment for the discs and low back. What you need to know is that most back pain is caused by injury or damage to the discs. The discs are the cushions in between all of the spinal bones. When there is damage to the discs, it can lead to pain, sciatica, muscle stiffness and a host of other symptoms. The problem has always been finding a way to heal discs without doing something invasive like injections or surgery.
Spinal decompression solves that problem. Spinal decompression allows you to eliminate pain and heal your back without surgery or injections.
Let’s talk a little bit more about the discs in your spine. Unlike other structures in your body, discs don’t have a good blood supply, so once they are damaged, they don’t heal well. Once a disc gets injured, torn, or starts to degenerate, it loses its hydration and starts to become brittle and dry. This leads to further damage and pain.
The Dynatronics DX2 Decompression System has been cleared by the FDA to relieve pain associated with herniated discs, protruding discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, and sciatica. It allows you to gently and safely put tension in the lower back or neck to create what’s called a “negative pressure” inside the injured discs. This negative pressure creates a vacuum effect that actually draws the bulging or “slipped” disc material back to its normal position. It also brings fluid into the disc to help it re-hydrate and heal.
Unlike other treatments, the DX2 Decompression System actually makes the discs healthier. Medication and injections only cover up the pain but do nothing to actually heal the spine and discs.
Call me if you have any questions about the DX2 system. I’d love to help!

MORE ABOUT THE DYNATRONICS DX2
The DX2 is user friendly for the patient and the doctor. The decompression table has the ability to lower, elevate, move side to side, it can be positioned to provide maximum patient comfort and effectiveness. The DX2 computer programming offers extensive treatment parameters. It monitors not only the decompression forces administered but also the precise angles of the forces.
DX2 PROVIDES TARGETED DECOMPRESSION
In a healthy spine, the vertebrae that protect the spinal cord are separated by discs made of sponge-like tissue which absorb the shock of movement by the spine. Back and neck pain may be caused by several problems with the discs including:
Degenerative Disc Disease – the disc material itself loses volume and becomes thin, causing the bones of the vertebrae to rub against each other and the nerves exiting the spinal column to become pinched.
Herniated Disc – the disc material actually bulges out from the nucleus and may even rupture, putting pressure on the nerves that extend from the spinal cord. In some cases, this results in radicular nerve pain, more commonly known as Sciatica.
The goal of targeted decompression is to apply steady, gentle distraction to the affected vertebrae, increasing the space between them. This produces several benefits: It takes pressure off of the discs, bone structures, and nerves in the area. This increases the flow of blood and nutrients to the discs and promotes healing. With increased space, a bulging disc may flow back into the space between the vertebrae where it belongs. Misaligned joints may see an improvement in alignment, giving them greater mobility. There is now increased space for spinal nerves to flow from the spine to other parts of the body.
