Common Questions About Spinal Decompression

How effective is spinal decompression?

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.
