Research Articles on Spinal Decompression

research_articlesResearch Articles on Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Treatment are available below.

We  have provided a wide range of articles and encourage our patients to avail themselves of this valuable resource. Please feel free to discuss any of these articles with Dr. Tunick as well as to ask any questions you may have about your own individual condition and we will be happy to assist you.

Many of the studies done on Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy were done on the Vax-D technology which was one of the early leaders in the development of this exciting approach to the treatment of significant low back and leg disorders. The basic research that is reflected in these numerous articles are pertinent to all Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy protocols, and the Lordex Spinal Stabilization System that is utilized by Dr. Tunick and the staff of Natural Pain Solutions is one of the leading protocols in use today.
