Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
By: Fetterman Events

Course Description

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression therapy aims to help patients who suffer from debilitating pain due to bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs. It can also be used for the pain management and treatment of many causes of sciatica, injured or diseased spinal nerve roots, and worn spinal joints.

The therapy itself works to stretch the spine, using a spinal decompression table or other device, in order to create negative pressure and space within the disc to allow disc fluid to move back into place. This creates an environment in which the disc can receive more nutrients and therefore heal itself more quickly and effectively. The ultimate goal of spinal decompression therapy is to relieve the patient’s chronic back, arm, neck, and/or leg pain, and to heal the source of pain.

Dr. Henry will show you how to perform spinal decompression, when and when not to use this method, and give you the treatment protocols you need to successfully treat these patients.

What is spinal decompression and the difference between this and traction
Indications & Contraindications for treatment
Treatment Protocols
What to treat and how to treat using spinal decompression
Multi-modal treatment approach
Comparisons to alternative treatments
Research & Studies
