2 Don’t Just get Treated Get Fixed Right ! Quit Suffering Now

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

4 Decreased disc heightRoughened Vertebral Endplates Pressure causing disc to bulge onto the nerve causing pain Degeneration of the spinal segments Degeneration of the spinal segments

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

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

7 Complete Herniation of disc material Nucleus of disc pushes through the ligaments.

8 Pressure Applied to Nerves Nucleus material surrounds Nerves causing pain and numbness

9 MRI of Degenerated Lumbar Spine Roughened Vertebral Endplates Disc Buldges Disc Herniations Nerve Compression

10 Vertebral Axial Decompressive Therapy medical centers treated with Decompression medical centers treated with Decompression 5 groups (types of injuries): extruded disc, multiple HNP, one level HNP, DDD, facet syndrome 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) Average onset of symptoms = 40 months (83% over 4 months) Treatment 15 cycles, 1 min tension, 30 sec relax of decompression Treatment 15 cycles, 1 min tension, 30 sec relax of decompression 71% had reduction of pain to 0 to 1 on 0-5 scale 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 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

11 Effects of Decompression on Sensory Nerve Dysfunction 17 patients (13 male, 4 female), aver. age 40.8 yrs, average symptoms 17.2 months 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 22 peripheral nerves investigated by Current Perception Threshold (CPT) Neurometer Criteria: abnormal CPT reading, symptoms of sciatica, positive SLR, & positive imaging studies 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 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) Overall improvement 67% (P< 0.05) Tilaro et al 1999 Tilaro et al 1999
