What is a Herniated Disc?

Disc herniation is a rupture of fibrocartilagenous material (annulus fibrosis) that surrounds the intervertebral disc. This rupture involves the release of the disc’s center portion containing a gelatinous substance called the nucleus pulposus. Pressure from the vertebrae above and below may cause the nucleus pulposus to be forced outward, placing pressure on a spinal nerve and causing considerable pain and damage to the nerve.

This condition most frequently occurs in the lumbar region and is also commonly called herniated nucleus pulposus, prolapsed disc, ruptured intervertebral disc, or slipped disc.

With a vast range of treatment protocols, physicians can now offer more patients lower back pain relief. The DRX9000 is designed to relieve pressure on the anatomical structures that cause lower back pain. This non-surgical procedure was developed for the treatment of pain and disabling lower back conditions caused by disc hernia ions, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and posterior facet syndrome.
