The highly trained professional staff at Colorado Injury Center is devoted to offering the most advanced and effective treatment for their patients. Dr. Allan German and his team are second to none for lumbar decompression therapy in Colorado Springs.
When it comes to spinal health, there is no room to leave anything to chance. That is why lumbar decompression therapy is becoming more and more popular. Minimally invasive, the therapy is a quick and simple outpatient procedure, performed by a very small incision in the lower back. No general anesthesia is required, nor any stitches afterward. The procedure is FDA cleared and has been successfully performed on thousands of patients to date.
Specialized tools are inserted through the tiny incision in the back. With these tools, the doctor can remove small pieces of bone and excess ligament tissue that is inflamed and causing pressure to build in the spinal canal. An imaging machine is used to help guide the physician through the procedure. Restoration of space inside the spinal canal decreases the compression on sensitive nerves, thereby relieving pain, reportedly on an average of 53%.
Lumbar decompression therapy in Colorado Springs is typically performed in less than an hour, and a full recovery occurs in just a few days. With no implants or stitches, light activities can be resumed almost immediately. Dr. German’s team is comprised of many chiropractors and physical therapists adept at relieving pain in more traditional, long term ways as well. While the risk of complication related to lubar decompression therapy is extremely low, it never hurts to have professionals around who know what they are doing.
Overall, Lumbar decompression therapy is a safe, effective treatment option that delivers significant pain relief for those with lower back complications, with 79% percent of patients experiencing a significant reduction in pain, and increased mobility.
