Everybody knows sciatica. The great playwright William Shakespeare wrote about it. You’ll even find mention in the Bible. Sciatica has been torturing people for thousands of years!
I describe sciatica as a burning, stringing pain. Sometimes it actually numbs your leg, your foot, your thigh. Your sciatica may be tied to back pain; in some cases, it’s not.
Here’s the good news: You can get relief from sciatica pain – REAL relief – with a breakthrough treatment my colleagues and I have given to thousands of patients. It’s called Spinal Decompression.
I’ll tell you more about this therapy in just a moment… but first…
Let’s look at what causes sciatica.
Putting aside the medical mumbo-jumbo, sciatica is caused by a pinching and/or irritation of one of the three lowest lumbar nerve roots that make up the giant sciatic nerve. When these delicate nerve roots are irritated, they can cause lower back pain. They can also ignite the entire sciatic nerve – giving you a great deal of debilitating pain.
Disc problems are very often the cause of sciatica. Over time, small injuries to the discs take their toll – and the disc’s inner core starts to leak out. This ooze – no matter how small — puts pressure on nerves, causing the pain. When the sciatic nerve is involved, you’ve got sciatica.
For severe sciatica flare-ups – or chronic sciatica pain – people try all kinds of therapies. They take painkilling drugs, use heat/ice, massage. Some try steroid injections or acupuncture. With all of these, there is only temporary relief – then there’s that terrible pain, back again. Chiropractic manual manipulation helps some folks.
But for many, many people, Spinal Decompression is the solution.
What exactly is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
It is a very safe alternative to surgery – and when you hear exactly how it works, you’ll see that it might be the right solution for your sciatica pain.
In every session, you will wear a comfortable pelvic harness – one that is designed to let you relax during the therapy. A computer guides the entire process, “instructing” the harness to make the tiniest adjustments in decompression during each session.
Picture yourself in your recliner at home. You lay back, you relax – and you fall asleep, right? That’s what happens with many of our patients. Spinal Decompression sessions are so relaxing, many fall asleep.
During the sessions, you will feel a change in your spine, as it relaxes and “lengthens.” This is the beginning of the natural healing process, as decompression relieves pressure on your discs, allowing for better circulation to the discs – so they can absorb healing fluids.
Many people feel pain relief with the VERY FIRST SESSION. I’m serious. I hear it all the time. Simply taking pressure off those injured discs can make a very dramatic change.
Over time, however, comes the real healing.
Researchers believe that, as circulation to the discs improves, the discs naturally draw fluid, oxygen and other nutrients. These biological components are the body’s repair mechanism — working to heal and rebuild a healthy disc.
A bulging or herniated disc naturally heals, as the disc reabsorbs its core material, and regains its natural shape. This takes pressure off pinched nerves – which relieves pain.
All this is accomplished without drugs, without surgery, without injections. And, thousands and thousands of patients report their successes. It’s truly remarkable the pain relief that is possible through Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression.
