A 57 year old male patient involved in a work related injury from repetitive lifting. The patient presented with severe mid to lower back pain and pain down the left leg.

MRI confirmed a significant disc herniation at L2/L3 and was recommended surgery. However, the patient declined to do the spinal surgery and sought spinal decompression therapy as their first option. Pain reduced from an 8 out of 10 to a 4

out of 10 in 12 visits.


After 24 visits the patient returned to work with an average pain level of 1-2. After 36 decompression treatments and several months between MRI studies a second MRI was obtained and revealed a complete regression of the previously diagnosed disc herniation at L2/L3. The patient returned to work pain free and required no surgery or further follow-up.
