Dr. Luke Henry wishes to thank his staff, Fetterman Events, and the 75 chiropractic physicians from Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama that attended his Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression continuing education class in Nashville, Saturday, September 10, 2022. Henry stated, “My goal is to bring doctors of chiropractic more clinical and professional success for the benefit of the thousands of pain sufferers they serve. I’m thrilled that my class was full and look forward to future lectures.” Non-surgical spinal decompression is a relatively new, non-invasive procedure that helps to significantly reduce or, in some cases, to eliminate chronic back pain or neck pain. Indications include bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, sciatica, neck pain, and back pain. The addition of computer technology to spinal distraction techniques gently lowers the pressure inside the discs in the spine to reduce disc protrusions and alleviate nerve compression without the risks associated with drugs or surgery. Dr. Henry teaches decompression as part of a multimodal treatment approach, which may also include therapeutic exercises, spinal adjustments / manipulation, myofascial release, and cold laser (AKA low-level laser therapy). He presented on the history of traction / decompression, evidence-based spine care, indications and contraindications, FDA medical device clearances, referral to other physicians when appropriate, outcomes assessment, diagnostic imaging (x-rays, MRI, and / or CT as is necessary), treatment protocols, risk management, a review of recent biomedical research and case studies. All of Dr. Henry’s classes have been approved for continuing education credit for doctors of chiropractic, either by state boards, FCLB PACE or through affiliation with National University of Health Sciences. Thus far in 2022, Henry has presented to DCs in Tennessee, Michigan, Delaware, Indiana, and South Carolina. Henry is an alumnus of Clemson University (Computer Engineering) and graduated at the top of his class from Sherman College of Chiropractic. He has authored peer-reviewed research on chiropractic, laser and non-surgical spinal decompression and is a reviewer for multiple scientific journals. Dr. Henry continues to practice full time and he is available to treat patients at Henry Chiropractic Clinic, LLC, 1314 Pelham Road, Greenville, SC 29615.
