Herniated disc treatment NYC

Herniated disc treatment NYC-Spinal Decompression in Manhattan

Korean Study comparing Spinal Decompression Therapy with Intermittent Mechanical Traction reports results in favor of Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression!
July 25, 2008: A study titled, “Effect of Spinal Decompression Therapy Compared with Intermittent Mechanical Traction in Lumbosacral Disc Herniation” is published in the June issue of the Korean Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine. Dr. Hee-Sang Kim, Kyung Hee University College of Medicine, compared the effects of intermittent mechanical traction with spinal decompression therapy (SDT) utilizing the DRX 3000®*. Thirty five patients experiencing low back pain with confirmed lumbosacral disc herniation on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) were selected to participate in the study. The patients were randomly assigned to SDT (20) and intermittent mechanical traction (15). Pre- and post-treatment visual analog scale (VAS) pain scores were utilized as the primary endpoint. The patients in the intermittent traction group exhibited a decrease in pain of 6.4 to 4.5 (-1.9) on a 0 to 10 scale. The patients in the SDT group revealed a much larger decrease in pain of 6.9 to 2.6 (-4.3). The authors conclude, “Spinal decompression therapy can be used as an effective treatment for discogenic low back pain without serious complications”.

The foregoing study was not sponsored by Axiom Worldwide. Axiom has made no determination of and makes no representations as to the design, scope or manner in which the study was conducted. Axiom Worldwide's referencing the presentation of the study should not be construed to mean that Axiom Worldwide represents that the study establishes any conclusive success rate or the efficacy of the device. The information is offered simply to demonstrate the exciting activity ongoing with the DRX9000. As always, individual patient’s experiences with the DRX9000 may vary and patients should always consult with their physician to determine whether treatment on the DRX9000 makes sense for them.

* The DRX3000 is the Korean version of the DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System
