Dr. Glen Batson is a Doctor of Chiropractic who received his degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1988. Dr. Batson treats patients of all ages and with various health issues. He specializes in the use of fluoroscopy (motion X-ray imaging) and infra-red thermography, enabling Dr. Batson to obtain a more specific analysis of a patient’s health condition to achieve better and quicker results. The treatment performed by Dr. Batson consists of specific hands on, gentle, non-twisting spinal manipulation and procedures using drop tables and percussor devices for specific correction of spinal subluxation (joint misalignment), restoration of joint function, and the relief of associated soft tissue symptomatology.
LUMBAR DECOMPRESSION THERAPY Dr. Batson has incorporated LORDEX DECOMPRESSION THERAPY and STRENTH RESTORATION THERAPY into his therapeutic regiment for the treatment of lower back pain, sciatic pain, disc herniations, and stenosis. These procedures have proven to be beneficial for many people suffering with acute and or chronic back pain. Lumbar Decompression Therapy has been prescribed and utilized as an active non-surgical treatment for over thirty five years for patients with herniated disc’s, degenerative joint disease, facet arthrosis, sciatica, disc bulge, and spinal stenosis to relieve PAIN. The total gravitational load force of our upper torso is placed on the lumbar spine. The activity of sitting, standing, bending, and lifting causes altered spinal vertebral joint function and increased load and pressure in the lumbar discs, joints, and surrounding soft tissue pain points. Lumbar decompression therapy targets the specific pain producing areas of the spine including intervertebral disc, nerve roots, and bone structures that are undergoing abnormal pressure or dysfunction. Through repetitive gentle mechanical distraction of the specific lumbar spinal segments, consisting of predetermined gentle pulls, holds, and releases, spinal decompression forces produce a negative intra-discal pressure drawing the disc material, fluids and nutrients back into the disc space thereby restoring function and relieving Pain. Because disc herniations are the result of mechanical instability and dis-use atrophy, simultaneous para-spinal strengthening in conjunction to Lumbar Decompression Therapy restores lumbar para-muscular strength and stability necessary to obtain normal functional capability of the lumbar spine. Patients will be thoroughly screened and accepted as candidates for this procedure which typically requires 20 to 30 sessions of therapy. Each patient will be given a course of treatment specific for their individual specific spinal needs with each lumbar decompression therapy session consisting of a 30 minute therapeutic treatment session. The treatment is gentle, non-twisting, and designed for restoration of joint and intervertebral disc function and relief of Pain. Dr. Batson utilized the Lordex Lumbar Spine System for the therapeutic treatment of the Lumbar dysfunction and PAIN and Strength Restoration Therapy for stabilization and strengthening of the lumbar para-spinal musculature.
