Sciatica is a condition that causes pain in the low back, down the back of the leg, and into the foot. You can have difficulty in sitting for long periods of time due to pain, tingling and numbness in the leg and foot. When the vertebrae in the low back are compressed, the roots of the sciatic nerve become pinched (“pinch nerve”) and irritated which causes the pain and symptoms.
You shall find that chiropractic treatment is beneficial to alleviate sciatica pain. Spinal decompression therapy is one of modern chiropractic procedures that treats sciatica. This therapy is used to relieve the pain as well as allow the natural healing process.
Many patients respond very favorably to Cox® Spinal Decompression Therapy from my personal experience. Many patients go from having intense, disabling sciatica at the initial visit, to being able to go about many daily activities usually within two weeks. However, this doesn't mean your condition is gone. This is only the beginning of care. But you are now on your way to being out of pain and realizing that there is hope for full recovery. It is not guaranteed that every patient will respond in this manner at this rate, but our chiropractic treatment has helped many patients.
