Dr. Matthisen sees a lot of back pain patients in our busy Anchorage chiropractic office. Many of these people have some kind of spinal dysfunction that is causing them pain and distress. Fortunately, Dr. Matthisen has found that spinal decompression therapy is a highly effective way to help these folks.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a treatment approach that takes all of the positive benefits that one normally gets from chiropractic, traction, physiotherapy, exercise therapy, and myofascial release and combines them all into one.
The objective of decompression is to keep you away from the surgeon's knife, and that is exactly what it's accomplished for a number of folks, as it has a reported 85% success rate.
A few of the problems spinal decompression helps with include generalized back pain, sciatica, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, compression fractures, and joint pain.
Spinal decompression works by reversing the influences of wear, tear, and the force of gravity that compresses the intervertebral discs in your neck and back. The video below shows how it works to eliminate pressure on your back and helps reduce pain and disability.
If you live in Anchorage and you're suffering with back pain, spinal decompression treatment might be the fix. Call Dr. Matthisen today at (907) 349-4212 for a consultation or appointment.
