Sciatica Treatment in Baltimore
Treating Sciatica for over 18 Years
Sciatica is an irritation of the sciatic nerve which is formed by nerves that arise in the low back. Most cases of sciatica are caused by herniations or bulges of one or more spinal discs. The spinal discs are soft tissue structures that separate the vertebrae and act as shock absorbers. When a disc becomes damaged, the cartilage wall on the outside of the disc may be too weak to fully withstand the pressure coming from inside the disc, and the result is a protrusion of the disc into the passageways where the nerves branch off from the spinal cord and exit the spine. This places pressure on the nerves and creates pain, often in the form of sciatica, which begins in the buttock area and may extend down the leg towards the foot.
Revolutionary Sciatica Treatment!
Sciatica symptom relief has often been hit and miss, but a new treatment option offered by our staff at Johnson Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, P.A. can provide effective relief. Our use of spinal decompression is a state-of-the-art form of spinal traction which utilizes computerized motors to gently and slowly apply a decompressive force to the spine. This can result in reducing pressure in the spinal discs. The system we use can comfortably create negative pressure or suction within the spinal discs that can pull disc bulges and herniations away from nerves.
Using spinal decompression to treat Sciatica:
- Has an 80-90% success rate in preliminary studies
- Has demonstrated long-term results in many cases
- Is much less painful than previous treatments
