Take a look at the pictures to the right and notice at all the positions the Kennedy spinal decompression table can create for the patient. This allows the treatment to be specific to the patients needs and create a more comfortable and effective experience.
The Kennedy spinal decompression table can treat both the neck (cervical) and back, and it is completely customizable for any height or weight. It is such a comfortable experience that many people fall asleep during treatment.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a traction-based, FDA-cleared, nonsurgical treatment for neck, back and leg and/or arm pain.
Conditions that can benefit from cervical (neck) or lumbar (low back) spinal decompression include:
Based on research and clinical experience, the best results are achieved with 20 spinal decompression sessions over a six-week period, however, each patient is thoroughly examined and given an individualized care plans based on their needs and unique case.
The effectiveness of spinal decompression is often increased when in conjunction with chiropractic, cold laser therapy, and muscular rehabilitation.
There are quite a few studies regarding the effectiveness of spinal decompression and traction. In fact, we've include 50 published article abstracts for your review.
Although none are Level 1 studies, one of the most well known studies on spinal decompression therapy was published in the Orthopedic Technology Review in 2003 by Gionis et al.
Out of 219 patients, 86% who completed treatment reported immediate resolution of their symptoms, while 84% remained pain-free 90 days post-treatment. Physical examination findings showed improvement in 92% of the patients and remained intact in 89% of the patients 90 days after treatment.
According to a recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), spine surgery is no more effective than non-invasive treatments, including chiropractic care, for patients with lumbar disc herniation causing sciatica.
Spinal decompression has saved thousands of people from the expense and risk of surgery and long-term prescription medication. We recently saw a patient who already had a spinal fusion surgery. Her bill was $249,000 for the surgery and $99,000 for the rehabilitation therapy.
