We have been providing cervical spinal decompression treatment in San Francisco for over 10 years now. The machine we use is the DRX9000c.
The DRX9000c cervical decompression system treats bulging and herniated discs in the neck which are a primary cause of arm and hand pain.
The nerves that exit from the neck travel down the arm and into the hand. When these nerves become pinched from herniated or bulging cervical discs it can cause neck pain, shoulder pain, arm and hand pain, weakness of grip, numbness, tingling, even night pain.
Because these symptoms mimic those of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), herniated discs in the neck are often misdiagnosed as CTS. In fact, sometimes carpal tunnel surgery is even performed (even though the cause is in the neck)…if you can believe that.
Once it is determined that the underlying cause of a patients arm and hand pain is a herniated or bulging disc (by MRI) we will first attempt to help with conservative treatments such as chiropractic, massage, and physical therapy. In the event these treatments fail to deliver results we may recommend cervical decompression with the DRX9000c.
The DRX9000c is designed and built to treat herniated discs in the neck without surgery. Sometimes a combination of decompression, chiropractic and exercise works best. If we need the help of a medical doctor we have them as part of our team also.
