LINCOLN, Calif., Oct. 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Advanced Spinal Rehab, Inc. in Lincoln, CA is educating patients about the benefits of spinal decompression treatments for natural back pain management. According to Lincoln chiropractor Dr. Larry Gies, spinal decompression is highly effective for relieving pain associated with a herniated disc, sciatica, whiplash, pinched nerves and spinal stenosis. Dr. Gies says that the treatments are effective because they address the root cause for pain, rather than simply relying on medication to cover up pain symptoms.
Lincoln chiropractor Dr. Larry Gies is recommending spinal decompression therapy for natural back pain relief. The chiropractor announced that he has had great success treating patients using this cutting-edge therapy.
"Spinal decompression therapy is at the forefront of pain management," said Dr. Gies. "For years, professional athletes have enjoyed the natural pain relief offered by this revolutionary treatment. Now, Lincoln back pain patients can enjoy the same benefits."
Decompression therapy is used to treat back pain caused by sciatica, spinal stenosis, herniated discs, and other conditions. According to Dr. Gies, patients experience back pain when a misalignment of the spine compresses nerves in the back. For example, if a herniated disc in the lower back compresses the sciatic nerve, patients will suffer from a pain condition known as sciatica.
Dr. Lincoln uses the DRX9000 Decompression Therapy System. This system uses the power of gravity to naturally alleviate disc pressure, decompress vertebra and create space in the spine.
"When the spine is compressed, a patient will experience pain," said Dr. Gies. "Decompression treatments do exactly what the name says they will; these treatments create space between the vertebrae, which decompresses the spine."
According to Dr. Gies, decompression therapy is more effective than using medication to manage pain. This is because decompression therapy creates space in the spine to correct the underlying misalignment.
"Most medical doctors rely on medication to manage back pain," said Dr. Gies. "While medication can provide temporary relief, it does so by numbing the brain's ability to sense pain. Long-term, this is an ineffective solution because patients become dependent on medication for pain relief. Decompression therapy works by addressing the underlying mechanical problem, rather than simply masking pain symptoms."
Dr. Gies offers decompression therapy at his Lincoln, CA practice, Advanced Spinal Rehab, Inc. The pain management and injury rehabilitation center also offers chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy and therapeutic massage for accident injury patients.
Dr. Gies has been providing alternative pain management solutions using technology to identify underlying injuries and create customized treatment plans for patients.
Depending on the type of injury, Dr. Gies may recommend a combination of decompression therapy with physical therapy exercises to safely manage pain and restore movement to the body.
