Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression Of Lumbar Disc Herniation: A Case Report And Proposed Multimodal Chiropractic Treatment Approach
TLDR
The care of a 59-year-old male with a 16 mm L3-L4 disc herniation compressing the right side of the thecal sac and right L4 nerve root is described using nonsurgical spinal decompression as part of a multimodal chiropractic treatment plan. Expand
Restoration of disk height through non-surgical spinal decompression is associated with decreased discogenic low back pain: a retrospective cohort study
TLDR
Non-surgical spinal decompression was associated with a reduction in pain and an increase in disc height, suggesting that pain reduction may be mediated, at least in part, through a restoration of disc height. Expand
Regression of lumbar disc herniation by physiotherapy. Does non-surgical spinal decompression therapy make a difference? Double-blind randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
This study showed that patients with LHNP received physiotherapy had improvement based on clinical and radiologic evidence, and NSDT can be used as assistive agent for other physiotherapy methods in treatment of lumbar disc herniation. Expand

TLDR
Only limited evidence is available to warrant the routine use of non-surgical spinal decompression, particularly when many other well investigated, less expensive alternatives are available. Expand
Effect of spinal decompression on the lumbar muscle activity and disk height in patients with herniated intervertebral disk
TLDR
Decompression therapy was demonstrated to be more effective clinically than conventional traction therapy as an intervention method for disk disease. Expand
No effect of traction in patients with low back pain: a single centre, single blind, randomized controlled trial of Intervertebral Differential Dynamics Therapy®
TLDR
Both treatment regimes had a significant beneficial effect on LBP, leg pain, functional status and quality of life after 14 weeks, and the added axial, intermittent, mechanical traction of IDD Therapy to a standard graded activity program has been shown not to be effective. Expand
Effects of vertebral axial decompression on intradiscal pressure.
TLDR
Tension in the upper range was observed to decompress the nucleus pulposus significantly, to below -100 mm Hg, and intradiscal pressure demonstrated an inverse relationship to the tension applied. Expand
Randomized trial comparing interferential therapy with motorized lumbar traction and massage in the management of low back pain in a primary care setting.
TLDR
A progressive fall in Oswestry Disability Index and pain visual analog scale scores in patients with low back pain treated with either-interferential therapy or motorized lumbar traction and massage is shown. Expand
National clinical guidelines for non-surgical treatment of patients with recent onset neck pain or cervical radiculopathy
TLDR
Recommendations based on low-quality evidence or on consensus, but well aligned with recommendations from guidelines from North America, recommend intensifying research relating to all aspects of management of NP and CR. Expand
Is There a Subgroup of Patients With Low Back Pain Likely to Benefit From Mechanical Traction?: Results of a Randomized Clinical Trial and Subgrouping Analysis
TLDR
The results of this study suggest this subgroup of patients likely to benefit from mechanical traction may exist, characterized by the presence of leg symptoms, signs of nerve root compression, and either peripheralization with extension movements or a crossed straight leg raise. Expand
