  2. Healthy Spinal Segment • Notice Full disc height • Healthy nerves & spinal column • Smooth joint spaces • No roughened joint spaces or degeneration

  3. Degeneration of the spinal segments Decreased disc height Roughened Vertebral Endplates Pressure causing disc to bulge onto the nerve causing pain

  4. The First stage of Herniation • Notice the tear in the ligament tissue • Tear due to pressure triggers the degeneration process

  5. Second Stage to Herniation Disc material creating a bulge in the ligament layer of the disc. Pain can be increased from these bulged disc.

  6. Complete Herniation of disc materialNucleus of disc pushes through the ligaments.

  7. Pressure Applied to NervesNucleus material surrounds Nervescausing pain and numbness

  8. MRI of Degenerated Lumbar Spine • Roughened Vertebral Endplates • Disc Buldges • Disc Herniations • Nerve Compression

  9. Vertebral Axial Decompressive Therapy • 778 patients @ 22 medical centers treated with Decompression • 5 groups (types of injuries): extruded disc, multiple HNP, one level HNP, DDD, facet syndrome • Average onset of symptoms = 40 months (83% over 4 months) • Treatment 15 cycles, 1 min tension, 30 sec relax of decompression • 71% had reduction of pain to 0 to 1 on 0-5 scale • Possible mode: decrease intradiscal pressure below -100 mmHg creates diffusion gradient across disc space improving nutrient flow into disc (i.e. glucose, oxygen, sulphate, etc) Gose et al 1998

  10. Effects of Decompression on Sensory Nerve Dysfunction • 17 patients (13 male, 4 female), aver. age 40.8 yrs, average symptoms 17.2 months • 22 peripheral nerves investigated by Current Perception Threshold (CPT) Neurometer • Criteria: abnormal CPT reading, symptoms of sciatica, positive SLR, & positive imaging studies • 14/22 nerves (64%) returned to normal function; 6/22 (27%) improved; 1/22 (4.5%) had no improvements; 1/22 (4.5%) showed deterioration • Overall improvement 67% (P< 0.05) Tilaro et al 1999

  16. Does Decompression Help Everyone? I wish I could say YES -100% of the time, but some cases are to far gone to improve with decompression. But there is an 80% success rate and that is an excellent rate for any treatment. Each case is evaluated of an individual basis

  17. How many treatments will it take? The number of treatments varies from case to case along with the frequency. Where some patients may need it daily to begin with, others may progress with a few treatments. Most patient area some where between 4 -20 visits. Each treatment plan varies according to your progress also, some improve faster than others.
