Excessive surgery has unfortunately become an epidemic in our country. Failed surgery rates for joint replacements and the spine are higher than most people can imagine. At American Med Care Center it’s not uncommon for them to see patients that have undergone multiple failed surgeries.
Over 80 percent of the population will experience back pain at one time or another in their lives. Unfortunately, as we age, our spinal discomfort tends to become progressively worse and can become chronic if left untreated.
The spine is made up of wedges of vertebral bone consisting of sacral, lumbar, thoracic and cervical vertebrae as well as, vertebral discs, ligaments, tendons and muscles that attach to the spine.
Over 30 nerves run down the entire spinal column. The elements of what’s causing the pain depend
on your particular situation and biological makeup, but for the most part, it’s frequently associated with compressed nerves that are literally being crushed by the narrowing of the vertebrae. The damaged nerves send signals to the brain transmitting the indication of pain.
The typically recommended treatments for spinal compression are pain medication and surgery. BUT, there is a better way; a results-driven solution that doesn’t include any drugs or surgery shows favorable results in relieving back pain. For many years chiropractors and physical therapists, have been utilizing a natural therapy for back discomfort called spinal decompression.
Spinal Decompression Vs. Traction
Traction is helpful at treating some of the conditions resulting from herniated discs or spinal degeneration. However, traction cannot address the source of the problem. Spinal Decompression can! How? Spinal decompression creates a negative pressure or a vacuum inside the disc.
This effect causes the disc to reduce in the herniation. The increase in negative pressure also causes blood and nutrients to flow back into the disc allowing the body’s natural fibroblastic response to heal the injury and re-hydrate the disc.
The American Med Care Center Difference!
American Med Care Center (AMCC) focuses on the source of your pain and implements several protocols and therapies that work together to get you the best results without addictive, pain-masking drugs, and without risky surgery. They use a synergistic approach because of PROVEN results that are evident with chiropractic treatment combined with physical therapy methods. Studies show significant outcomes in patient recovery with this type of integrative medicine.
Proven Patient Satisfaction
There are statistics on how patient outcomes fare better when they seek alternative treatment methods first, as opposed to those patients that seek traditional surgery. Due to the vast majority of failed surgery mentioned earlier, it’s unfortunate that more patients do not realize or hear about their non-surgical options.
With countless patient testimonials, American Med Care Center sheds light on how their proven methods help numerous individuals to get back to living the life they desire. One patient, in particular, Liz O. was an avid horseback rider, but her chronic neck and back pain took a toll on her daily activities, almost rendering her incapable of getting through the day. After unsuccessfully seeking traditional medical treatment, she found AMCC. Dr. Brian Reimer treated her with customized spinal decompression and moderated physical therapy.
“I was referred to Dr. Reimer by a friend, and it was great! Out of all the doctors I saw, he spent the most time with me. He put my MRI scans on a board, spent a good half an hour explaining everything, and gave me a nice overview of how I ended up where I was and his treatment recommendations.”
Now Liz is 100% off of pain medications and enjoys her ability to move freely without pain.
She added, “It’s nice not to have pain be the first thing on my mind when I wake up in the morning, and to go to bed at night and not have it be the last thing on my mind before sleep.”
She is quick to emphasize the ease and comfort of her treatment with AMCC and is elated to be back on her horse riding several times per week.
Dr. Reimer of AMCC explains his Practice standards, “American Med Care Center is part of a new model of healthcare that is emerging. With advances in technology, a Wellness Revolution is occurring. Science is allowing us to better study the natural design and true physiological function of the body. Pain is seen as an important clue, proper function is seen as the physician’s goal and the stability of the systems of the body is the culmination of the therapy with the participation of the patient.”
