Spine MT(SpineMT K1) announced on the 30th that a spinal decompression treatment device developed with its new medical device technology was published in the International Journal of Clinical Practice, titled “Effect of Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression on Intensity of Pain and Herniated Disc Volume in Subacute Lumbar Herniated Disc”.

A characteristic of the study conducted by Professor Pyong-bok Lee's team at Seoul National University Bundang Hospital in Korea revealed through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that non-surgical spinal disc decompression treatment can reduce the size of the prolapsed disc in patients with lumbar disc herniation.

The Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine Team that conducted the study reported that the device effectively reduced the size and pain of a prolapsed disc by applying a total of 10 treatments for 30 minutes for 8 weeks to a patient with subacute lumbar herniation. Therefore, it was suggested that non-surgical spinal decompression therapy would be a suitable treatment for lumbar disc herniation.

In addition, Professor Won-Ahn Kwon of the Department of Physical Therapy at Daegu Health College said that, unlike the conventional treatment device, the treatment efficiency could be increased because it has the advantage of being able to apply the treatment in three dimensions considering the prolapse direction and the prolapse form of the disc.

He added that pain can be reduced and the size of the prolapsed disc can be reduced by reducing the pressure on the compressed nerve through disc decompression and allowing the disc to heal and recover. It has the advantage of being able to treat spinal imbalances by strengthening the spinal muscles through the mobilization function mounted on the treatment device.

Lumbar disc herniation is a common cause of low back pain and neuromyopathy. Even with severe disc herniation, good clinical results can be obtained through treatment. However, surgical treatment may be considered when a patient has neurological deficits, and conservative management commonly includes education, medication, physical therapy, and epidural steroid injections.

Director Kim In-seop of the Spine Rehabilitation Center of Heemyoung Hospital said, “Disc decompression treatment can be treated without surgery with almost no after-effects or side effects, and there is no pain during treatment, so daily life is possible. So it can help patients suffering from spinal diseases.”

Spine MT’s CEO, In-kyu Kim said, “Spine MT which was developed after many years of research by the domestic medical engineering team is a non-surgical treatment that can be applied to various spinal diseases. It is significant that about 1,000 units have already been distributed and used in spinal hospitals with its original technology,” and added, “It’s different from the conventional spinal disease treatment options as it proves its effectiveness as non-surgical disc decompression treatment.”
