Colorado Springs Herniated Disc Patients are Finally Getting the Relief They Have Been Searching For
Colorado Springs herniated disc patients often follow a winding path from one therapy and practitioner to the next. First it is rest, over-the-counter pills and self-stretching. Then, prescription drugs and an MRI. Then physical therapy and/or injections. The back surgery.
This is an expensive and unfruitful venture for most patients. Back surgery's failure rate is scary, and its success stories often have follow-up surgeries starting two years after their first surgery.
These are common stories we hear all the time, from hundreds of callers per month.
Bust Colorado Springs herniated disc patients have another option that is getting more acclaim and actually resolving the pain and dysfunction in the spine using spinal decompression and laser therapy.
A herniated disc is dislodged from its proper location between the vertebra of the spine and it puts pressure on the nerves of the spine and thereby causes numbness, loss of strength, muscle atrophy, tingling, shooting pain and even paralysis of the extremities (arms and hands, as well as legs and feet, depending on the location of the herniation).
The most common forms of Colorado Springs herniated disc patients experience cervical (neck) and/or lumbar (low back) herniations.
Spinal decompression removes pressure on the disc by increasing the space between the vertebra. The treatment takes 10-20 minutes and it is often in conjunction with other therapies, such as aligning the spine using chiropractic (if warranted) and laser therapy using FDA-approved lasers for pain relief. The lasers help the body speed up the healing process and it reduces inflammation in the tissues.
"Sometimes, we even use nutritional therapy to help reduce inflammation and pain levels," said Dr. Molly Kallenbach, co-owner of Thrive Health Systems.
As the pain levels drop and patients regain function of their limbs, we work to stabilize the injured area.
Results vary based on the patient's age, extent of the injury and how long ago the injury occurred. We have patients receive a 90% improvement and patients that require up to 35 treatments before they are pain free.
