A fast and successful pain relief procedure for sciatica sufferers has been discovered. Sciatica is a term used to describe symptoms of pain, tingling, weakness and numbness that radiate along the sciatic nerve. Sciatica is most commonly caused by lower back disorders that put pressure on or cause irritation to a lumbar nerve root. Sciatica symptoms are typically only felt on one side of the body and produces a searing or sharp pain as opposed to aching or throbbing. Sciatic pain can last for either long and short periods of time. Treatment for sciatica is aimed at eliminating the pain altogether.
Some traditional treatments for your sciatica.
The traditional sciatic treatment has always been bed rest, specific exercises, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or narcotics like codeine. In extreme cases cortisone injections into the spine or surgery is performed. These are the opposite extremes in sciatic treatment. Most people do not benefit from common pain relief medication or rest as the symptoms of sciatica cannot be eliminated using those treatments and they only temporarily numb the pain cause by sciatica. Surgery can mean having to travel or stay away from family, taking time of off work and can be expensive and even risky depending on the type of surgery and the person performed on. An effective middle ground can be found in some of the newer treatments.

Doctors agree that massage as a form of physical therapy is a fast and effective sciatic treatment. Massage has led to a new sciatic treatment known as spinal decompression. Spinal decompression is performed by a physical therapist or chiropractor with a specialized traction machine. The traction machine uses computerized motors to apply force to the spine that decompresses the spinal discs. The negative pressure created in the discs pulls herniated discs away from the sciatic nerve while increasing blood flow and nutrient availability to the area. With the new computerized spinal decompression systems, pain during sciatic treatment is a thing of the past as the computers adjust the motors with each response of the body. Therefore, treatment is performed while the muscles are constantly relaxed for maximum effectiveness.
The success of spinal decompression hovers between the 80 to 90 percent range. It will not work for everyone, but 90 percent is one of the highest success rates of any sciatic treatment. Talk to your doctor or chiropractor about spinal decompression today.
