Sciatica Pain: Can Decompression Help?

Sciatica, which is pain in the hips or legs due to irritation of the sciatic nerve (the largest nerve in the body), can be very painful. It can become chronic and debilitating.

The most common cause of sciatica is a herniated or bulging disc in the low back (lumbar spine). Sciatica has a history of being difficult to treat and surgery is often the unfortunate outcome of a herniated disc diagnoses. But it doesn't have to be that way.

Chiropractic care is probably the best drug-free treatment for a herniated lumbar disc and sciatica pain. However, some patients will not respond and this is when we consider non-surgical spinal decompression with the DRX-9000.

The DRX-9000 is designed and built to treat herniated discs without drugs, needles, or surgery. It is fully computerized and is able to reposition the herniated disc back into a more normal alignment and away from the sciatic nerve, nerve roots, and spinal cord.

Spinal decompression machines elongate the spine, enlarge the disc space, strengthen the spinal muscles, ligaments, and tendons, and re-hydrate the disc to promote healing.

Does spinal decompression work every time? NO...nothing does...just most of the time.

But in the event spinal disc decompression fails to deliver desired results, you are still "whole" and can pursue other treatment options, even surgery.

So there you go. If you are suffering with sciatica and have been diagnosed with a herniated disc, you should probably find a chiropractor with a spinal decompression machine. Chiropractic and spinal decompression is a potent treatment combination for sciatica relief.
