What the Research Says About Spinal Decompression

Are you experiencing discomfort or pain due to disc problems, such as herniated or bulging discs, sciatic pain, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, or chronic lower back pain?

You may be interested in exploring non-surgical spinal decompression as a highly effective alternative to traditional or alternative treatments.

Study Shows High Success Rate

If you’re thinking about trying spinal decompression for your back pain or disc issue, but not sure if it really works, consider the results of one study. It was referenced in the article, “Measured success, evaluating the effectiveness of spinal decompression therapy.”

In this study, the student project included documentation review, data collection, and analysis. The intern, under the supervision of a Doctor of Chiropractic, was granted access to patient records dating from 2011 to 2014. To track satisfactory rates for the spinal decompression treatment given in the facility, the electronic health records of 163 randomly chosen patients were analyzed to record the following: date of treatments, gender, main complaint, and diagnosis.

The chief complaint listed revealed that more than 50 percent of the sample conveyed some type of lower back pain. The remaining complaints included neck, shoulder, hip, leg, and foot pain.

The clinical evaluation showed a success rate of just over 90 percent. Success was defined as patients being “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with their treatment outcome.

What to Expect

During your treatment session at Holmes Chiropractic, Dr. Holmes will conduct a thorough assessment and customize your treatment plan to your specific needs. The computerized table will gently stretch and relax your spine, reducing pressure on the discs and nerves and increasing circulation to promote healing.

Spinal decompression therapy is generally a relaxing and painless experience, with many patients even falling asleep during their treatment.
