Sciatica is a common condition that affects many people. The sciatic nerve is the longest in the body, running from the lower back down through the legs. When this nerve becomes compressed or irritated, it can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in the lower back, buttocks, and legs.
There are many treatments for sciatica, but one of the most effective is non-surgical spinal decompression. Spinal decompression is traction that uses gentle stretching to relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve. This treatment can be done in a doctor’s office or at home with a particular device.
How Spinal Decompression Works
Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine to take pressure off the sciatic nerve. This stretch relieves sciatica pain and other symptoms by taking pressure off the nerve.
Spinal decompression can be done in a doctor’s office. In most cases, spinal decompression is done over a series of sessions lasting 20-30 minutes. Each session may provide relief for a few hours to a few days.
