For debilitating pain, few conditions are as disruptive as nerve-related issues such as sciatica.
With symptoms ranging from mild discomfort to severe, incapacitating pain, these conditions can significantly affect quality of life.
Fortunately, non-surgical spinal decompression has emerged as a promising, non-invasive treatment. At O’Dell Family Chiropractic, we’re often asked if this therapy can relieve the pain associated with sciatica and other nerve-related issues.
Let’s explore the benefits of non-surgical spinal decompression for those suffering from these painful conditions.
What is non-surgical spinal decompression therapy?
Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is a modern chiropractic technique designed to ease pressure on the spinal discs and nerves.
A controlled traction device creates negative pressure in the spine and space between the discs. This negative pressure allows the retraction of bulging or herniated discs and encourages the flow of nutrients and oxygen back into those discs, facilitating healing.
The connection between non-surgical spinal decompression and nerve-related issues
Sciatica is often caused by a herniated disc pressing on the sciatic nerve.
Other nerve-related issues can arise from narrowed spinal canals (spinal stenosis) or degenerated discs. Non-surgical spinal decompression is designed to address these root causes by
- relieving painful pressure on nerves by creating space between vertebrae;
- promoting healing and easing pain by increasing circulation to affected areas; and
- reducing disc herniation that irritates nerves by allowing the disc to retract.
Can non-surgical spinal decompression help with sciatica?
Non-surgical spinal decompression is an effective therapy for sciatica for many patients.
Creating space for the herniated lumbar disc to retract relieves pressure on the sciatic nerve, eases pain, and improves mobility.
Benefits for other nerve-related issues
Non-surgical spinal decompression may also help with conditions such as spinal stenosis, pinched nerves, and radiculopathy. Decompressing the spine can alleviate the direct pressure that leads to these nerve-related symptoms.
