Spinal Decompression Therapy Research and Studies
Surgical Alternatives: Spinal Decompression
CONCLUSION: 86% of the 219 patients who completed the therapy reported immediate resolution of symptoms, while 84% remained pain-free 90 days post-treatment. Physical examination findings showed improvement in 92% of the 219 patients, and remained intact in 89% of these patients 90 days after treatment. It was shown to be effective for herniated and degenerative discs.

Decompression, Reduction, and Stabilization of the Lumbar Spine: A Cost Effective Treatment…
CONCLUSION: Eighty six percent of ruptured intervertebral disc patients achieved ‘good’ (50-89% improvement) to ‘excellent’ (90-100% improvement) results with decompression. Sciatica and back pain were relieved. Facet arthrosis patients, 75% obtained ‘good’ to ‘excellent’ results with decompression.

Efficacy of Vertebral Axial Decompression on Chronic Low Back Pain.
CONCLUSION: This 144 patient study showed 76% achieved remission of pain. Except in emergent conditions, Vertebral Axial Decompression should be used on all conditions before surgery is undertaken.

A Case Report by Terry R. Yochum, DC, DACBR, Treatment of an L5-S1 Extruded Disc
CONCLUSION: After objective and subjective testing and post MR imaging, Spinal decompression therapy provided an effective means of treatment for this patient’s symptoms resulting from discal herniation (extrusion) with associated impingement of the adjacent nerve root.

Vertebral Axial Decompression Therapy for Pain Associated with Herniated or Degenerative Discs or Facet Syndrome: An outcome Study of 778 Cases.
CONCLUSION: The authors consider Vertebral Axial Decompression to be a primary modality for low back pain, lumbar herniations at single and multiple levels, degenerative discs, and facet arthropathy, and decreased spinal mobility.
