When chronic pain intensifies and becomes more frequent, it often indicates an underlying cause that has yet to be identified. Such pain can severely limit daily activities, making it crucial to seek effective treatment. At Lake Stevens Chiropractic, we offer a unique and highly effective spinal decompression therapy that can provide relief from your suffering. Our approach, known as Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP), integrates various aspects of chiropractic and neurological care. If you are dealing with chronic pain, the following information will help you determine if CBP is right for you.
Confronting Compression and Inflammation Directly
Many chronic pain sufferers are unaware that their condition is often caused by significant spinal compression and inflammation. Without addressing the underlying cause, patients may struggle to find lasting pain relief even after undergoing numerous chiropractic treatments. Our spinal decompression therapy utilizes non-invasive, drug-free techniques and treatments from different branches of chiropractic practice and medicine, including:
Manual spinal decompression adjustments
Customized spinal decompression exercise protocols
These approaches work together with a common goal: nonsurgical decompression of the spine. They are administered as a necessary step to address the underlying, more complex biomechanical issues.
Improving Alignment and Motion
A significant number of pain syndromes stem from poor biomechanics, but our CBP process can effectively address and correct these issues within a relatively short timeframe. This phase of treatment combines elements of physical therapy and general chiropractic care by:
Restoring joint and nerve functioning through patient posture adjustments
Strengthening and retraining muscles using mirror image exercises
Reshaping ligaments with postural traction
These treatments help reduce inflammation and pressure while restoring proper alignment and motion. Once this is achieved, we can proceed to the stabilization process.
In the final phases of CBP, functional neurology and physical rehabilitation treatments are utilized. To enhance your balance, strength, range of motion and endurance, we employ various physical rehabilitation techniques. This essential part of the process helps strengthen your muscles and spine.
Restoring Neurological Balance
The cerebellum, located near the lower part of the brain, consists of two hemispheres that perform different neurological functions, including stabilizing the muscles in the spine. Each hemisphere controls the spinal muscles on its respective side. However, when there is an imbalance in their functioning, tension can increase in the spine, leading to intense and chronic inflammation. This inflammation often results in debilitating pain and severely limits the range of motion. CBP utilizes nonsurgical treatments to address these imbalances:
Upon completion of CBP, patients frequently experience long-term relief from chronic pain and inflammation.
