“Wonders spill from the early rise in our stature, but it is the descent in the later years that brings physical problems…the ultimate goal in the human spine is to minimize vertebral approximation and disc height loss.”
Decompression, or unloading, of spinal discs is a common treatment style Dr. Fryer uses. More and more research continues to show how relieving the compression of the intervertebral discs contributes to the best outcomes for patients. If you visit this recent topic on upregulation, you can see that researchers are learning what frequencies are best for the deep spinal cells of discs. For those that are interested, Dr. Fryer uses manual decompression moments at a frequency of approximately .2Hz; similar to the normal natural breathing rate of an adult human. To understand frequency (Hz), you can see the rates here.
