Due to recent nationwide flight delays, Dr. Henry’s Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression seminar January 28, 2023 was changed from live in Chicago, Illinois to livestream. While disappointed at not being able to interact with colleagues in person, Dr. Henry wishes to thank the chiropractic physicians from Ohio, Indiana, South Carolina, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Illinois for attending his 12-hour continuing education lecture.
While traction has been used to treat spinal disorders since antiquity, nonsurgical spinal decompression uses computer technology to gently lower pressure inside the spinal discs and relieve pressure on the delicate nerves. This novel physiotherapeutic procedure is performed using FDA cleared medical devices. Decompression initially was plagued with controversy, due to unscrupulous marketing but today it is supported by a growing body of scientific evidence and is becoming an established procedure taught at several chiropractic colleges. Indications include bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, sciatica, neck pain, and back pain. Many chronic pain sufferers are looking for an answer and wish to avoid pain medications, injections and surgery. Dr. Henry brought IDD Therapy to Greenville in 2012 and has developed a multifaceted treatment approach incorporating hands-on treatments, rehabilitation exercises, and low-level laser therapy. This evidence-based approach helps to significantly reduce chronic pain for most patients and is also appropriate for acute injury from auto accidents, work and sports injuries. While temporary soreness is possible, the treatment is very safe and gentle. Dr. Henry has served as a postgraduate lecturer for three chiropractic colleges and is a member of the South Carolina Chiropractic Association. His 2017 study on spinal decompression has been cited by researchers internationally. Henry gave seven lectures throughout the United States last year in association with Fetterman Events and National University of Health Sciences.
Doctors of chiropractic wishing to learn more about this procedure may register for one of Dr. Henry’s upcoming classes, with lectures planned for Raleigh, Asheville, Greenville, Knoxville, Florence, Dothan, and Atlanta in 2023. The Chicago program may be rescheduled, depending on air travel difficulties.
Dr. Henry practices at Henry Chiropractic Clinic, LLC at 1314 Pelham Road in Greenville, South Carolina, with a practice emphasis on acute and chronic back and neck pain.
