Superior results when Decompression is Prone (on the stomach)

From the American Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, comes this research that looks into the difference in decompression machines.
In our office, we decompress the spine creating an intersegmental decompression when the patient is prone (lying on the stomach) and the table “breaks” in a specific area. This research indicated that this is SUPERIOR.
Lying on the back with a harness around the waist is just creating regular traction, and the force is divided on all the vertebrae and not directed to a specific level. (I love the fact that the research supports our treatment).
