Chiropractic, Massage, Therapeutic Exercise and Spinal Decompression: An Effective Treatment Combination
Bellingham's top chiropractor, Dr. Randall Hill, uses a combination of
the following therapies and treatment modalities to provide quality
care to his
patients. He is the team sports chiropractor for numerous local
teams. The Bellingham Roller Betties, Bellingham Bulldogs,
Bellingham Bells, and Bellingham "Old Bats" (his wife Linda's softball
team), are among the professional, semi-pro, and community
organizations with whom he's been working. He's currently treating an eleven
year old champion gymnist and a team of aging bowlers. Dr. Hill is available
to help with your sports injuries too.Spinal Decompression, also
known as LCD (Lumbar Cervical Decompression), is a gentle form of disc decompressive traction, an FDA
cleared treatment for disc herniations and bulges, degenerative joints
and sciatica. This painless therapy relieves pressure in the disc using
a gentle stretching technique. The vacuum effect can reabsorb bulging
disc material and thus relieve arm, leg, and back pain. The phasic
motion increases blood and fluid exchange, activating nerve
mechano-receptors surrounding the joints to relieve pain and improve
function. This gentle form of treatment is often effective for the
degenerative joints associated with aging and osteoarthritis.
Is LCD Right for Me?
Many patients have
benefited from this state-of-the-art treatment. A preliminary
examination and X-ray will be evaluated to determine whether you are
likely to have a successful outcome. If it is apparent that
you are not a viable candidate for spinal decompression, we'll let you
know. We will help you find an alternative treatment or provider.
We have a collegial relationship for cross-referral to other members
of the healthcare/medical community in virtually every discipline.
Beyond Pain Relief
relief is usually the main reason a patient seeks chiropractic help;
however, chiropractors offer much more. Preventive care is the key to
ensuring a healthy spinal column. Regular checkups benefit patients of
all ages. The best cure, as we all know, is an ounce of prevention. By
keeping the path open from the spinal column throughout the nervous
system, we give our bodies the best chance to self-heal. At Bellingham
Spine and Disc we are committed to this principle.
Having taught the "Protect Your Back" program for the
Chiropractic Association and American Red Cross, Dr. Hill enjoys
tailoring exercise protocols for each individual patient.
Simple, take-home exercises are available for both stabilization and
