Non Surgical Spinal Decompression

Non Surgical Spinal Decompression in Manhattan Call (212) 645-8151

Recent studies

Among the material submitted is a study presented at the American Academy of Pain Management in 2006. In that study, researchers from Stanford University, Johns Hopkins University, and other institutions, conducted a retrospective analysis of outpatients treated with the DRX9000 for chronic low back pain lasting more than 12 weeks.
They concluded that pain was significantly reduced in the subjects, as was the use of pain relief medications (subject to the limitations set forth in the report). Patients reported a mean 90% improvement in back pain and none required surgery. The study was partially funded by Axiom.
A case study of a 50‑year old male patient, conducted by Terry R. Yochum, DC and Chad Maola, DC, published in Chiropractic Economics as an "educational advertorial" concluded that "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."
Dr. Yochum also noted that "Decompression of the spine proved to be superior to the other forms of conservative care when applied to our patient."
Research studies have also been conducted in Russia and the Republic of South Korea, each showing similar results with overall success rates as high as 90%.
