Dr. Covington sees several back pain patients in our busy Yakima chiropractic office. Many of these people have some form of spinal issue that is causing them pain and distress. Fortunately, Dr. Covington has found that spinal decompression therapy is an effective way to help these patients.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a treatment technique that takes all of the positive benefits that one normally gets from chiropractic therapy, traction, physiotherapy, exercise therapy, and myofascial release and combines them all into one.
The objective of this technique is to keep you away from the surgeon's knife, and that is precisely what it has achieved for a lot of folks, 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 influences of wear, tear, and gravity that compresses the intervertebral discs in your neck and back. The movie below demonstrates how it works to diminish pressure on your back and helps decrease pain and disability.
If you live in Yakima and you're suffering with back pain, spinal decompression therapy might be the answer. Call Dr. Covington today at (509) 895-7535 for a consultation or appointment.
