Spinal Decompression in Kingston WA
Are you looking for spinal decompression in Kingston? You don't have to live in debilitating pain. Whether you have lower back pain, a pinched nerve, sciatica, radiating pain into the arms or legs, neck pain, or a variety of symptoms related to damaged or degenerative discs, spinal stenosis, and post-operative complications, as well as syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine. Spinal Decompression may be for you.
WHAT CONDITIONS DOES IT HELP?
- Bulging discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Facet syndromes
- Herniated discs
- Pinched nerves
- Radiating leg pain
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The negative pressure may cause the retraction of the herniated or bulging disc into the inside of the disc, and of the nerve root. It happens only microscopically each time, but cumulatively, over a course of treatment, the results are quite dramatic.
The cycles of decompression and partial relaxation, over a series of visits, promote the diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids from the outside of the discs to the inside. These nutrients enable the torn and degenerated disc fibers to begin to heal.
A complete program targeting the function of the stabilization ligaments, tendons, and muscles is a vital part of Spinal Decompression. Exercise and adjunctive therapies such as heat, muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and cold therapy can assist in the rehabilitation of these structures. Our goal is to not only help heal the disc but to also enhance muscular control and support of the back and neck.
WHAT A TREATMENT SESSION LOOKS LIKE
For the low back, the patient lies comfortably on his/her back on the decompression table, with a set of nicely padded straps snug around the waist and another set around the lower chest. For the neck, the patient lies comfortably on his/her back with a pair of soft rubber pads behind the neck. Many patients enjoy the treatment, as it is usually quite comfortable and well-tolerated.
HOW LONG IS THE TREATMENT?
Therapy sessions typically last less than 20 minutes, 3 times a week for 1 month, transitioning from passive to active treatments as you respond, with most patients feeling pain relief with as few as 6-10 treatments. Most patients are released from treatment after 8 weeks.
WHAT CAN HELP MAINTAIN MY PROGRESS?
Regular home exercise and periodic visits to our office will help in maintaining your spinal health and reduce the probability of reoccurrence. Clinical results of this procedure have been effective in over 75% of the patients treated and most patients find long-term relief or effective management of their pain when they complete the entire program of treatments utilizing the Spinal Decompression.
