If you are experiencing unexplained shooting pains down the backs of your legs, you may be dealing with a condition known as sciatica. The pain can be quite debilitating and even impact your ability to enjoy your favorite hobbies and activities. With our professional spinal decompression and chiropractic treatments at Community Health and Wellness Center in Plantation, FL, you can alleviate your sciatica pain and get back to living your life. 

What is sciatica?

Sciatica refers to a shooting pain that can radiate down the backs of your legs. It is named for the sciatic nerve, which reaches from your hips and down your legs. Sciatica pain can feel dull, sharp, throbbing, or even stabbing. It usually impacts just one side of your body, but some patients may experience it on both legs. As well as pain, the symptoms of sciatica can include numbness, tingling, and muscle weakness. Sciatica is often caused by herniated discs, pinched nerves, and bone spurs. 

What is spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression is a non-invasive technique that the FDA has approved for the treatment of sciatica pain. A spinal decompression session utilizes a motorized traction system to carefully lengthen the spine and reduce pressure on your discs. At Community Health and Wellness Center, we use the Cox Disc Decompression system to effectively decrease your pain levels and help you regain your full mobility. 

How can spinal decompression and chiropractic help?

Sciatica pain is often the result of vertebral subluxations, or spinal misalignments, that may be applying excess pressure to your spinal column as a result of conditions like herniated discs and pinched nerves. When this occurs, the protruding discs can aggravate the surrounding nerves and muscles, leading to pain and soreness. 

Spinal decompression and chiropractic care are both devoted to correcting spinal misalignments and creating more space in your spinal column for your discs to ‘breathe.’ It is even possible to combine these treatments for a more effective recovery regimen. Your chiropractor can evaluate your symptoms and collaborate with you to devise a treatment plan specifically suited for your needs.
