Kennewick Chiropractor Provides Help for Chronic Back Pain Sufferers

Chronic back pain can have many different causes. Often it is as simple as lifting something wrong or twisting the body at an odd angle. Car accidents are another common cause of back injuries that lead to chronic pain. In some cases, doctors performed surgeries in an attempt to relieve the cause of pain. Not all surgeries are successful. A chiropractor can often help a patient find relief even after a failed back surgery.


Kennewick, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/02/2010 -- Columbia Basin Spinal Rehabilitation Institute is pleased to announce that Dr. Eric Kurtz and Dr. J. Rubin Rangel are able to provide help for those suffering from chronic back pain. In many cases, standard manual manipulations of the spine to correct subluxations can provide rapid relief. If pain is caused by a bulging or herniated disc, these doctors are able to apply a procedure using the latest in technology to specifically target the disk level that is the cause of the pain. This procedure is known as spinal decompression.

Spinal decompression is based on traction, a method that has long been used by medical doctors to relieve back pain. When applied to my chiropractor's office, the spinal decompression is assisted by a computer to specifically target the level that is causing the problem. During the process a negative pressure is created inside the bulging disc which will help to pull it back into place and relieve pressure on nerves exiting the spinal cord at that level.
