Spinal Decompression Study

Study of the week: This study shows the association of intervertebral disc height and spinal decompression and its effects on low back pain. Patients with disc herniations underwent a 6 week treatment plan that consisted of motorized non surgical spinal decompression and measured with pre& post CT scans in order to establish disc height and low back pain correlation.

In this study of non-surgical spinal decompression for chronic discogenic low back pain we were able to demonstrate an association between the restoration of disc height and pain relief.
