Dr. Covington sees a lot of back pain patients in our busy Yakima chiropractic office. Many of these people have some kind of spinal disorder that is causing them pain and distress. Fortunately, Dr. Covington has found that spinal decompression treatment is an effective way to help these people.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a treatment approach that takes all of the positive benefits that one normally gets from chiropractic, traction, physiotherapy, exercise therapy, and myofascial therapy and combines them all into one.
The goal of decompression is to keep you out of the operating room, and that is precisely what it's accomplished for a number of people, as it has a reported 85% success rate.
Some of the issues spinal decompression helps with include generalized back pain, sciatic nerve pain, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, compression fractures, and joint pain.
Spinal decompression works by reversing the effects of wear, tear, and gravity that compresses the intervertebral discs in your spine. The movie below shows how it works to relieve pressure on your back and helps lessen pain and disability.
If you live in Yakima and you're struggling with back pain, spinal decompression treatment might be the fix. Call Dr. Covington today at (509) 895-7535 for a consultation or appointment.
