About Spinal Decompression
Chiropractic is a system of complementary medicine based on the diagnosis and manipulative the misalignments of the joints, especially those of the spinal column, which are believed to cause other disorders by affecting the nerves, muscles, and organs.
We will always recommend both treatments for patients who are suitable for Spinal Decompression Therapy.
In a study involving 219 patients, 86% of the treatments were successful.
After treatment, each patient rated themselves on the Oswestry Pain Scale, with a reduction of pain to 1 or 0 indicating treatment success. 188 patients reported a perception of pain of 1 or 0, without the need for further medication.
These patients also regained the range of motion of their backs and any sensory or motor loss. The rest of the 31 patients saw some improvements in their pain and disability score, despite not being fully recovered. It was also noted that the success rate decreases with the increased severity and complication of the condition.
