Spinal Decompression for Sciatica
Sciatica pain can be excruciatingly unbearable – as well as greatly limiting to range of motion and the ability to engage in daily activities. Sciatica treatment addresses the root cause of this pain, which is the inflammation and radiating discomfort of a herniated disc situated alongside the sciatic nerve.
When this occurs, the “slipped” or “bulging” disc imposes an unnatural pressure on this primary nerve, resulting in pain (usually on one side of the body) that spans from the lower back into the hip, buttock, and leg. Along with radiating pain, problems with the sciatic nerve may also involve numbness, weakness or tingling.

Scientific Findings Regarding Cox Disc Decompression™

- 2. Decreases disc protrusion and reduces stenosis.
- 3. Tensions the ligaments to reduce stenosis.
- 4. Opens the vertebral canal by 2 mm. (16%).
- 5. Increases metabolite transport into the disc.
- 6. Opens the posterior facet joints and reduces posterior disc stress.
- 7. Intradiscal pressure drops under distraction.
- 8. Intervertebral foraminal openings enlarged giving patency to the nerve

Cox Spinal Decompression Therapy™ is a component of many of our patients’ treatment plans and is a non-invasive and relatively painless approach to correcting sciatica pain. For many, the use of a traction table to eliminate pressure between the discs is a successful and effective alternative to surgical decompression procedures. Further, many patients welcome the notion of an all-natural approach to treating pulsating sciatica pain as an alternative to powerful pain medications.
