An estimated 80% of adults experience persistent back pain at some point in their lives. For some, the pain is short-lived and goes away on its own. For others, the pain is chronic and persists for months or even years. For patients suffering from acute or chronic pain, Marin Regenerative Health offers non-opioid and non-surgical solutions for sciatica in Marin County.

Alleviate Back Pain Without Drugs or Surgery

Back pain is an extremely common problem that afflicts over 80% of all individuals at some point. You may suffer from back pain for numerous underlying reasons, such as disc degeneration, disc herniation, pinched nerves, injuries, fractures, or more. Conventional medicine usually focuses on two forms of treatments for back pain — drug-based or surgical. Neither of those options is optimal or even desirable.

If you’re suffering from chronic back pain, you probably don’t like the idea of being reliant on medications to get you through the day. An over-prescription of opioids for chronic pain has contributed to an opioid crisis that continues to affect the lives of millions of Americans today. Surgery carries an inherent risk of complications and doesn’t always alleviate pain. We offer a non-opioid and non-surgical alternative — spinal decompression.

What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical solution to disc-related disorders in the lumbar or cervical spine. Spinal decompression is a therapy for pain for sciatica in Marin County, this type of motorized traction uses a machine to stretch the spine. The goal is to take pressure off the spine to relieve pain. Chronic back pain often occurs when the nerve roots around the spine are pinched because of spinal compression, i.e., when the space between the vertebrae becomes narrow. Spinal decompression expands that space to free the nerve roots and alleviate back pain.

Spinal Decompression Can Treat:

  • Damaged spinal nerve
  • Nerve radiculopathy
  • Pinched nerves
  • Bulging spinal discs
  • Slipped discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Disc herniation
  • Sciatica pain
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Posterior facet syndrome
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Failed back surgery
  • Other spinal conditions

Advantages of Spinal Decompression:

  • No drugs or opioids
  • No injections or invasive techniques
  • No surgical procedures or incisions
  • No anesthesia
  • No hospitalization
  • No downtime or harsh side effects
  • Stimulates natural regeneration
  • Improves strength and mobility
  • Improve spinal disc health

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

Spinal decompression involves gently stretching the spine to take pressure off the sciatica in Marin County, which facilitates the rehydration of intervertebral discs and the correction of disc protrusion. The table we use for our spinal decompression accurately increases the intersegmental disc space, thus promoting the transfer of fluids, nutrients, and oxygen into the spinal discs. This leads to a restoration of disc height and the retraction of bulging or herniated discs, which, in turn, takes the pressure off the surrounding nerves.

Does Spinal Decompression Really Work?

Clinical trials have shown that spinal decompression can reduce disc herniations by 10% to 90%, depending on the number of spinal decompression treatments. Utilizing MRI before and after the session, researchers have also found that spinal decompression patches and heals the annulus, thus improving the overall health of the intervertebral spinal discs. If you’re suffering from chronic back pain because of disc-related disorders, spinal decompression is the solution.

Your Spinal Decompression Experience

A typical spinal decompression session consists of 12 minutes on the spinal decompression table. During the treatment for sciatica in Marin County, you have to lie down on the table, following which you are comfortably secured. Half of the table is electronically titled to target specific spinal segments with precise movements, reducing pressure within the discs. This is an extremely comfortable treatment, and patients often fall asleep on the table.

Most patients need an average of 20 sessions for optimal results and relief, but you should start noticing the results after 5 to 10 sessions. Most patients need 2 to 4 spinal decompression sessions per week, with a rest on the weekend. Once you have completed the entire series of recommended treatments, you must undergo spine-strengthening exercises to avoid a recurrence of chronic pain. You can return to a normal level of activities a few weeks after your spinal decompression treatments.

Post-Surgery Spinal Decompression

Patients who undergo spine surgery for back pain often experience a recurrence of back pain. If your back surgery has failed to alleviate pain, you should consider spinal decompression as treatment for sciatica in Marin County. This is a safe and non-invasive means of correcting the underlying imbalances responsible for your back pain, thus helping you achieve back pain relief without relying on medications and surgical intervention.
