HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Skocik Chiropractic in Harrisburg, PA announced that the practice has had substantial success treating back pain patients using spinal decompression therapy as part of chiropractic care. Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive treatment technique that provides natural back pain relief by decompressing the lumbar spine. Creating space between the vertebrae reduces lumbar spine compression and may help relieve back pain caused by a herniated, slipped or bulging disc. Chiropractor Dr. Albert Skocik recommends spinal decompression therapy as an effective pain management alternative to surgery and medication.
Individuals who are struggling with back pain due to a herniated disc, bulging disc, or slipped disc may benefit from spinal decompression therapy. Spinal decompression therapy is an FDA-approved non-surgical treatment for back pain.
According to Harrisburg chiropractor Dr. Albert Skocik, spinal decompression therapy can even help patients who are suffering back pain following failed back surgery.
"Spinal decompression therapy is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment technique that alleviates lumbar spine compression for drug-free back pain relief," said Dr. Skocik. "When vertebrae in the back are compressed, these vertebrae place pressure on nearby nerves, triggering pain. Decompression therapy creates natural space in the spine, restoring correct curvature to relieve pain."
Like traditional chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression therapy works by addressing a patient's underlying cause for pain – rather than treating only pain symptoms.
"Traditional medical treatments, such as prescription painkillers, are less effective for long-term pain management," said Dr. Skocik. "These medications numb the brain's ability to perceive pain. Unfortunately, this also means that once medication wears off, pain will return as well."
Dr. Skocik says that many of his patients also choose spinal decompression therapy as an alternative to back surgery.
"Even with modern medical advancements, back surgery can still be incredibly risky," said Dr. Skocik. "Worse, surgery is not always successful. In fact, some of our patients come to us after failed back surgery leaves them in even greater pain than before the surgery. After just a few treatment sessions, our patients are in significantly less pain."
The chiropractor stressed that every patient is different and faces unique pain management needs. Consequently, some patients may benefit from a combination of treatment options, such as spinal decompression therapy and chiropractic adjustments.
"Our goal with every patient is to create a customized treatment program that provides long-lasting, drug-free, non-invasive back pain relief," said Dr. Skocik. "Thanks to spinal decompression therapy, we have had significant success providing long-term back pain relief while supporting a patient's whole body health."
