Sciatica treatment thru Chiropractic CareAs a sciatica sufferer, you know that shooting pain can pop up at any time. 

What you might not realize is that sciatica isn’t a condition itself — it’s a symptom of broader spinal damage.

While sciatica often disappears on its own, you can expect it to resurface if you don’t seek proper treatment. Fortunately, spinal decompression provides an effective, safe, and drug-free sciatica treatment.

What Causes Sciatica?

You can’t mistake the pain of sciatica: A shooting electric-like pain that begins in one buttock and runs through your thigh down your leg.

It’s common for sciatica to get worse while sitting or bearing weight on the affected leg. 

Many people don’t realize that sciatic pain is the result of a herniated or damaged disc in your lower back. 

Years of poor posture, bad lifting techniques, and sitting put stress on specific points along your spine. Over time, pressure builds and discs slip out of place

Sciatic pain arises when those disc misalignments start to irritate or pinch your sciatic nerve, which is the nerve that runs through your buttock down your leg. 

Usually, you’ll notice that sciatica also involves a dull low backache. Regardless, the pain will never disappear completely until you receive comprehensive sciatica treatment to correct and heal the damaged spinal disc.

Why Choose Spinal Decompression for Sciatica Treatment in Santa Clara?

Studies show that spinal decompression is safe and effective for restoring the natural balance between discs. Plus, it’s completely natural and non-invasive.

You’ll lie on a table with a strap around your hips. Your doctor will gradually adjust the table which gently stretches your spine to relieve built-up pressure between your delicate discs. 

Don’t worry, it’s not painful. Many patients find decompression treatment relaxing.

By creating this negative pressure, oxygen and nutrients can enter your vertebrae and encourage proper healing. Home exercises, stretching, and proper posture are an important part of recovery to ensure that your spine retains its natural shape after decompression treatments.
