According to a study by Davis et al in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine, the availability of chiropractic services was associated with decreased burden on primary care due to Medicare patients suffering from neck pain or low back pain. There has been concern over the coming primary care shortage. Doctors of chiropractic (AKA chiropractic physicians) are well qualified to provide nonsurgical relief for neck and back pain. Chiropractors are trained in diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention. Most insurances cover chiropractic services.

Greenville, SC, November 7-8, 2015 – Dr. Luke Henry, a Greenville chiropractor, traveled to Dallas, Texas to instruct at Parker University’s National Decompression Certificate Program. More than 50 chiropractic physicians and a number of chiropractic assistants from across the U.S. and Canada attended, making this the largest attendance to date since the program began in 2012.

According to the National Institutes of Health, back pain affects 80% of Americans with more than one quarter of adults experiencing low back pain during the last 3 months. Lower back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide. In some cases, back pain persists despite medical treatments.

Spinal decompression is a new noninvasive method that relieves spinal pain without the cost or risk associated with back surgery. Decompression devices are FDA cleared, with computer technology that distracts a specific level of the spine without muscular contraction. Research has shown that decompression lowers pressure inside the discs into -100 to -150 mm Hg range. This negative pressure increases nutrition to allow healing, restores lost disc height, and frees up compressed or irritated nerves. Most patients receive 20-25 treatments over 6 to 8 weeks. Neurosurgeons Norman Shealy, M.D. and Dennis McClure, M.D. found success rates from 86% to 92% with no known serious adverse effects.

Dr. Henry, who is the author of peer-reviewed scientific publications, was invited to present by Eric Kaplan, D.C., F.I.A.M.A., co-chairman of the International Medical Advisory Board on Spinal Decompression. Dr. Henry lectured on a multifaceted treatment protocol for bulging, herniated and degenerative discs that includes chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, and low-level laser therapy and he served as proctor for the national decompression certification examination.

Dr. Henry, said, “Many patients have already tried medication, physical therapy, chiropractic, and injections but are still suffering. Our new nonsurgical approach brings relief and results”.

Greenville Chiropractor Authors New Nonsurgical Decompression Treatment for Herniated Discs

A new nonsurgical approach may offer the answer to back or leg pain from herniated discs without surgery. Dr. Luke Henry’s paper, “Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression Of Lumbar Disc Herniation: A Case Report And Proposed Multimodal Chiropractic Treatment Approach” has been published in the Internet Journal of Chiropractic, an open access, peer-reviewed research journal. The paper describes the nonsurgical care of a patient with a 16 mm lumbar disc herniation producing nerve compression. The patient’s lower back and leg pain, weakness and numbness resolved with a treatment plan combining chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression and cold laser therapy. The patient was able to resume work after three visits and he experienced progressive improvement in his ability to sleep, stand and walk. Symptomatic and functional improvement was maintained at a 6 month follow up. Dr. Henry encouraged further research on this new noninvasive approach. Dr. Henry serves as a postgraduate instructor at Parker University’s National Decompression Certificate Program and is a member of the International Medical Advisory Board on Spinal Decompression. Dr. Henry is a graduate of Clemson University and Sherman College of Chiropractic. He is a member of the South Carolina Chiropractic Association and practices in Greenville, South Carolina.
