Your Decompression Outcomes Are Better When Technique is Consistent

Do you get frustrated when your decompression results are not what you had hoped for or expected? Before you give up on using your table, take some time to review your protocol and technique. First, review your classification system. In my practice, I follow the acronym LIPID, which stands for location, initiation, provocation, intensity, and duration of pain/symptoms.
