Woman receiving sciatica treatment in League CityUp to 40% of people will experience the intense pain of sciatica at some point in their lives.

If your sciatic pain doesn't go away, doctors may have told you that spinal decompression surgery is your only hope for relief.

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy from your League City, TX chiropractor offers an alternative sciatica treatment.

Why Choose Spinal Decompression for Sciatica?

Sciatica isn’t precisely a condition in itself; it’s more of a symptom. Problems in the spine like herniated or bulging discs pinch or put pressure on the sciatic nerve which causes that familiar intense pain.

Spinal decompression gently stretches the spine to relieve pressure on the herniated discs and the sciatic nerve, so it’s notably effective for treating lower back pain. The extra space between vertebrae creates a healthy environment for nutrients and oxygen to flow into the discs which support proper healing.

During your treatment, you’ll lay on a table called the Triton DTS. Your doctor will place a harness around your waist and gradually adjust the table which will slowly stretch your spine, so vertebrae retract to their natural position.

Dr. Vazquez will develop a unique treatment plan based on your condition, symptoms, and medical history. Each session lasts between 30 to 45 minutes and doesn’t require much of a recovery period.
