A 22 year old female gymnast complaining of constant pain and inability to do aerobics and normal gymnastics was being treated with flexion distraction and under constant supportive care. Patient presented with a grade 2 moderate L-5 Spondylolisthesis. Patient underwent a trial of decompression treatments utilizing the Decompression System. Utilizing Dr. Kennedy’s lumbar protocol #1 with a Decompression setting of a 40 second pull and a 25 second relaxation, minimum pull at 30 lbs and maximum pull at 1/2 body weight; 2 progressive ramp ups and 2 regressive ramp downs; for 12 minutes per session; 3 sessions per week for 4 weeks. At the end of the trial period the patient is able to perform ADL’s and can now do aerobics and normal gymnastics pain free. Patient has had no flare-ups. Patient supportive care has been reduced by 2/3rd the previous level prior to decompression therapy.
