One of the most modern ways to treat sciatica is also one of the least invasive. That therapy, known as non-surgical spinal decompression, has successfully helped thousands of patients with sciatica, disc herniations, or other pain conditions. Several scientific studies have also confirmed the efficacy of spinal decompression therapy. There are surgical and non-surgical forms of spinal decompression therapy, but this post will focus on the non-surgical method.
When the sciatica is pinched by a bulging or herniated disc, it not only causes pain, it also leads to brittleness of the affected disc. The compressed disc restricts the flow of nutrients in the spine causing the disc to deteriorate. Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy works to address both of these problems naturally.
Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is an important component of chiropractic treatment for sciatica. Chiropractors have practiced this therapy safely and effectively for years.
