Understanding the Benefits of Spinal Decompression for Sciatica

If sciatica pain is affecting your daily life, it’s time to visit a medical specialist. At Bell District Physical Medicine, we have a highly skilled team that includes a medical doctor, nurse practitioner, and chiropractor who provide collaborative health care, preventive care, and drug-free pain management. We can evaluate the underlying cause of your sciatica and recommend chiropractic care or spinal decompression therapy in Cedar Park, TX.

Determining the Underlying Cause of Your Sciatica

In order to determine whether you are a good candidate for spinal decompression therapy, we have to diagnose the underlying cause of your sciatica. Your sciatic nerves run from your lower back down each leg. Sciatica symptoms can occur if either of these nerves are irritated, injured, pinched, or compressed.

The most common causes of sciatica are:

  • Herniated or slipped discs
  • Age-related disc degeneration
  • Arthritis and osteoarthritis
  • Trauma or injury
  • Pregnancy
  • Bone spurs, cysts, tumors, or growths

Designing a Personalized Chiropractic Care Plan

In addition to spinal decompression, we also offer other chiropractic therapies to treat sciatica. Our chiropractor Dr. John Tuggle, may suggest a combination of therapies to offer you the best chance of a successful recovery, and to prevent recurrence of sciatica symptoms.

The most effective chiropractic sciatica treatments are:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Spinal decompression therapy
  • Functional dry needling
  • Regenerative therapy
  • Therapeutic exercises and stretches
  • Shockwave therapy

Preparing for Spinal Decompression

Understanding what to expect from spinal decompression therapy will help you prepare. Spinal decompression is a safe, non-invasive, and non-surgical sciatica treatment option. During spinal decompression, you will lie fully clothed on a comfortable, padded treatment table.

This table is motorized and provides gentle, gradual traction therapy. Dr. Tuggle will control the movement of the table using a special computer program. As the table moves, it will gently stretch your limbs, muscles, and spine. This can shift your spine back into alignment, relieve pressure on your sciatic nerve, cause herniated discs to move back into place, and allow the free flow of healing nutrients throughout your spine.
