Lincoln Rehabilitation Clinic Offers Physical Therapy and Spinal Decompression in One Location

LINCOLN, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 1, 2012) - Advanced Spinal Rehab, Inc. announced that the practice offers comprehensive pain management and rehabilitation services in one location for patient convenience. Treatments offered by the clinic include physical therapy from a licensed physical therapist, chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression therapy and cold laser treatment. According to the rehab and wellness clinic, they are the only Lincoln practice to offer all of these services in one location.

Chiropractor Dr. Larry Gies, the founder of Advanced Spinal Rehab, Inc. announced that Lincoln patients have a new destination for comprehensive pain management and rehab treatment. His center is the only local practice to offer a combination of physical therapy, decompression therapy with cold laser treatment and chiropractic adjustments for patients in one location.

"Our center is based on one basic principle -- helping people heal the right way," said Dr. Gies. "By addressing and correcting the underlying cause for pain and injury with a suite of services, we help patients heal better and faster. Whether a patient is struggling with chronic pain or has sustained a whiplash injury in a car accident, our comprehensive treatments relieve pain and help the body heal."

Physical therapy is a core component to the practice's treatment programs. These treatments, administered by a licensed physical therapist, are designed to restore mobility to the body while promoting internal healing. Depending on a patient's condition and needs, treatments may include a cold laser therapy to reduce inflammation and relieve pain, ultrasound and electrical stimulation therapy for pain relief. Simple corrective care exercises many also restore balance, flexibility and coordination to the body following injury.

According to Dr. Gies, Lincoln spinal decompression therapy is an effective treatment for correcting chronic lower back pain and conditions like sciatica or a herniated disc. The treatment can also help patients suffering from failed back surgery. As a chiropractor, Dr. Gies is certified to use the DRX9000 treatment machine.

"Back pain is often caused by a herniated disc or misalignment of the musculoskeletal system," said Dr. Gies. "When a disc becomes severely compressed, the entire spine can become involved with pain and spasm. Decompression therapy works by creating space in the spine, effectively reducing this compression and returning a disc to its original position. The treatment is non-invasive, non-surgical and drug-free."

Dr. Gies also cites decompression therapy's success statistics. According to the chiropractor, the success rate in some clinic studies have shown to be as high as 86% effective for resolving herniated/bulging discs. The success rate for spinal fusion surgeries is 30-40%, and 60% of spinal fusion patients continue to suffer following their operation.

"When it comes to treating chronic back and neck pain, physical therapy, decompression therapy and chiropractic care are truly a successful combination," said Dr. Gies. "Many of our patients have suffered through back surgery without results. Our ability to offer a range of rehabilitative therapies in one office helps patients achieve better success."
