ABSTRACT

Objectives :The purpose of this study is to make a survey of the effectiveness of the non surgical spinal decompression treatment in patients with cervical disc herniation documented on magnetic resonance imaging(MRI). Methods :We studied about 27 cases of cervical disc herniation which were treated with non surgical spinal decompression and other medical treatment (acupuncture, interferential current therapy and ice poultice). Each patient has been treated with spine decompression and other medical treatment. And degree of improvement has been evaluated by short form-McGill pain questionnaire(SF-MPQ), visual analogue scale(VAS) and neck disability index(NDI) before treatment and 5th, 10th times after treatments. Results :1. The VAS, SF-MPQ and NDI scores showed statistically significant improvement after 5th and 10th treatment. 2. The VAS, SF-MPQ and NDI scores after 5th treatment showed better improvement than those of after 10th treatment. 3. The VAS, SF-MPQ and NDI scores in subacute stage showed more statistically significant improvement among the other stages. Conclusions :As a result, non surgical spinal decompression treatment has clinical effects of pain reduction on patient with cervical disc herniation.
