We have been helping patients with with sciatica since 1993 at Executive Express Chiropractic in downtown San Francisco (formerly Front Street Chiropractic).
About 5 years ago we added nonsurgical spinal decompression into our treatment protocols for conditions such as herniated discs, bulging discs, disc degeneration, facet syndrome, and spinal stenosis (secondary to disc bulge or herniation). All of these are primary causes of sciatica.
Sciatica, which means pain in the leg, or pain that travels from the low back to the leg, is actually a symptom not an actual cause.
Well...so far so good. What we found is that many of the patients that were unresponsive to chiropractic care, which is probably the best form of treatment for sciatica, would respond to lumbar decompression therapy.
And often times, the combination of both chiropractic and spinal decompression would work wonders...much more than they would individually.
So fast forward 5 years to May 2010. Now we have Deep Tissue Laser Therapy and Active Release Techniques (ART) to compliment our sciatica treatment protocols...so the results are even better.
Are we able to help every single sciatica patient that walks in the door? Of course not...nothing will do that. But the outcomes are excellent and they keep improving as we learn more advanced therapies for chronic back pain and neurovascular compression syndromes.
Sure some patients still require back surgery...but many don't that previously would have.
Anyway...that's the update from the front line of our San Francisco Spinal Decompression Center.
If you would like to find out if you are a candidate for nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy at Executive Express Chiropractic please call 415-392-2225 and ask for a complimentary consultation. We validate parking at the Embarcadero Center.
We are often asked if we know any spinal decompression doctors in other areas that do similar work. These are the doctors I can recommend as I know they offer a very high level of care and have the most spinal decompression experience in their area:
