With our professional spinal decompression treatments at Northgate Chiropractic Clinic in Rochester, MN, you can discover lasting relief from your sciatica pain.
What is sciatica?
The term ‘sciatica’ refers to pain that can shoot down the backs of your thighs. The condition is named for the sciatic nerve, which stretches from your SI joint down to your knees. Depending on the patient, the pain can be stabbing, sharp, dull, or throbbing. It generally affects just one side of the body, but can occur on both. In addition to chronic discomfort, symptoms of sciatica can also include numbness, muscle weakness, and tingling.
What is spinal decompression?
Spinal decompression is a drug-free, non-invasive medical treatment that utilizes motorized traction on a decompression table to gradually stretch areas of your spine. The procedure alters the force placed on your spine, reducing the amount of pressure placed on the surrounding nerves and muscles. Spinal decompression is safe, painless, and has been proven to be effective in the successful treatment of sciatica pain.
How can spinal decompression treat my sciatica?
Many examples of sciatica, including herniated or bulging discs, are caused by pressure on the spinal cord or nearby nerves. Spinal decompression treatments reduce the amount of force on your spine and give your discs more room to spread out without aggravating the surrounding nerves or muscles. Patients suffering from herniated discs may also experience relief from disc pain in addition to sciatica pain, as spinal decompression gently nudges the vertebrae into proper alignment.
