Chiropractor In Kennewick WA, Dr. Eric Kurtz, Uses Decompression Therapy
To Treat Low Back Pain
Kennewick, WA, 16-AUGUST-2012 - The Columbia Basin Spinal Rehabilitation
Institute and Kennewick chiropractor, Dr. Eric Kurtz, D. C., are pleased
to announce that the range of recovery techniques offered by the practice
includes decompression therapy. Using this specific type of technique
when the patient is experiencing low back pain has been shown to be
effective, without requiring surgery or other types of therapy.
Decompression therapy operates on the belief that physical compression of
spinal discs results in a bulge into the tissue surrounding the spinal
column. This bulge presses on tissue, nerve roots and muscle. If it is
long-standing, permanent damage can be done to nerves and soft tissue.
The result is weakness, loss of function and other symptoms, depending
upon where the bulge is located.
Decompression attempts to reverse the process. Through manipulation and
stretching of the spinal column, a gentle vacuum is exerted on the
intervertebral discs. When a small additional space is created, the disc
central portion can be drawn back into the space between the vertebrae.
As pressure on the nerves and soft tissue is reduced, the circulatory
system brings healing nutrition to the area at the cellular level.
A combination of manual manipulation of the spine and use of a special
table gives the decompression method validity. The technique is gentle
and doesn't cause additional pain to the patient.
