Dr. Bradley is the only chiropractor in Bakersfield who offers spinal decompression therapy. Through the use of our DRX 9000 spinal decompression table we have helped thousands of patients completely eliminate their pain.
Our advanced DRX-9000 spinal decompression table is a revolutionary treatment for many chronic low back pain conditions. This therapy treats the root cause of symptoms, instead of covering them up.
Because of this, spinal decompression therapy has real results. No other modality is as successful at relieving low back pain, not even surgery. Even better, this alternative treatment is non-invasive, all natural, and has zero side-effects.
Before putting anybody on the DRX 9000 we perform a full examination. We review your medical history, do a hands on examination, and often use X-Rays and and MRI scan to fully assess the nature of your condition. We will then have a sit down consultation to discus possible outcomes, treatment plans, and financing.
Such a thorough evaluation before prior to treatment is essential to ensure the safety of the patient, and to screen if they are a candidate for the treatment. The DRX 9000 is an incredible device that has helped many patients, but it is our responsibility to ensure that it will actually be able to help. There are times where simpler forms of treatment are sufficient, and unfortunately there are times when surgery is the only option. In this situation, Dr. Bradley has an osteopathic surgeon who he trusts and has referred patients to in the past with great results.
If spinal decompression is right for you, the treatment is very simple. With you fully clothed, we put harnesses over your chest and hips and then gently lay you down on the DRX 9000. The machine then proceeds to decompress your spine by applying a safe, monitored pulling on your spine. The treatment is very simple, safe, and gentle. For 30 minutes you are able to relax as the table applies decompression, you can even use headphones and listen to music during treatment, and often patients are so comfortable that they fall asleep on the table.
Even when our patients thought they had tried everything option available and they could not change, we have been able to get them out of pain. Take advantage of this life changing chiropractic therapy and get out of pain. Schedule your free consultation today!

Spinal decompression works by "decompressing" the spine. A gentle pull is applied to the spine which causes a negative pressure within the disc, creating a vacuum effect thereby reducing the bulging disc material.
Essentially, the disc is able to "suck" back in its bulge. This removes pressure from the nerve which was causing pain, which relieves symptoms and allows the disc to begin healing.
Spinal decompression treatment differs from traditional traction because a spinal decompression table is a high-tech device that allows for true spinal decompression. Unlike traction tables, a spinal decompression table has an onboard computer.
Thirty times a second, this computer is assessing and making tiny adjustments to the force being applied. It does this in order to prevent "muscle guarding" otherwise known as spasming or cramping. Because of this, people who have tried traction with no results may still benefit from spinal decompression.
Another major factor of spinal decompression is the lasting relief after treatment. This method is not a "pain relief treatment" in the sense that pain relief isn't the main goal, as with epidural injections and similar treatments. The main goal here is to heal the discs so that pain and injury never incur. Studies that tracked patients after treatment found that a vast majority found long lasting relief from spinal decompression.
Spinal discs are unique structure in the human body. They have no nerve endings and no blood supply. This means that the only way for a disc to heal itself is by decompressing, which creates a low pressure area to pull in healing nutrients and other substances.
Decompression provides this, making it one of the few treatments proven to help the spine heal.
Muscle guarding, as mentioned above, is an involuntary reaction of the body to protect the spine. When the spine is injured the muscles will contract and tighten in the area.
Normally, this function would protect the spine from movement that could otherwise damage it. However, in a controlled environment such as in spinal decompression, this safeguard needs to be bypassed to apply a decompressive force to the disc. The onboard computer ensures this can happen, allowing the area to heal and also avoiding painful muscle spasms, both of which make for happy patients.
In fact, the treatment is so effective and so comfortable that many times patients find such relief that they fall asleep. After having been in pain for weeks, unable to be comfortable, unable to sleep well, it is no wonder that once that is removed, they get the rest they have been missing.
