Finding Relief from Chronic Sciatic Pain: How Spinal Decompression Therapy Can Help Older Adults
Chronic sciatic pain can make life incredibly difficult. It causes all kinds of negative side effects, and can leave people unable to get out of bed. Sometimes, you may stand and have a severe sharp pain. Other times, you may be sitting and have sharp pain. If you’re over 50 and suffer from chronic sciatica pain, then we may be the solution you’ve been looking for. At Newport Center Family Chiropractic, we offer cutting-edge spinal decompression and laser therapy that can help reduce your chronic sciatica pain.
For those of us past middle age, chances are we will experience some form of sciatic pain at some point – a sharp, severe pain that can make it difficult to get out of bed or even stand up. Sciatica affects your neuro-musculoskeletal system, but we can help. At Newport Center Family Chiropractic, we offer cutting-edge spinal decompression and laser therapy for those struggling with sciatica. Our patients report significant reductions in pain as early as their first treatment, and often even feel years younger than their age after completing their treatment plan. Let’s explore how spinal decompression therapy can help older adults find relief from sciatic pain.
How Spinal Decompression Therapy Works
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical form of treatment that uses gentle stretching to relieve pressure on the spine that has been caused by bulging discs or herniated discs. During the procedure, a harness is placed around the patient’s waist while they lie down on a motorized table. The table then gently stretches and relaxes the spine in order to create negative pressure between the vertebrae which helps reduce pressure on nerves and other structures in the spine. This can lead to improved nerve function and reduced pain. It also helps promote healing by increasing oxygen and nutrient flow to these areas.
Spinal decompression is completely non-surgical, and it is a simple, very relaxing procedure. At Newport Center Family Chiropractic, our patients often report that the sensation of laying on the spinal decompression table is therapeutic, relaxing, and rejuvenating. Paired with laser therapy, this treatment can be incredibly effective against sciatic pain. For those with fragile bodies, either due to weight, pain, or another extenuating factor, spinal decompression can be a boon. Unlike other forms of spinal realignment, which can be aggressive and painful, spinal decompression is gentle, effective, and relaxing. After receiving just one treatment, our patients—seniors, adults, and children, too!—report feeling improvements in their physical health.
At Newport Center Family Chiropractic, our team uses state-of-the-art spinal decompression therapy combined with soft tissue treatments to reduce inflammation and restore proper posture for our patients suffering from sciatica. Our patients report significant reductions in pain as early as their first treatment after completing their treatment plan with us. After completing their treatment plan, many of our patients report feeling years younger than their age!
In addition to spinal decompression therapy, we also offer laser therapy which is an effective way to treat acute and chronic conditions such as neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, headaches, knee pain and more. Laser therapy works by using light energy to penetrate deep into tissues without causing any damage or discomfort while stimulating natural healing processes in the body like increased blood circulation and reduced inflammation which helps reduce your symptoms significantly.
How Does It Work For Older Adults?
Spinal decompression therapy is an ideal option for older adults looking for relief from sciatic pain because it does not involve invasive surgery or medications with potentially dangerous side effects. Furthermore, since it does not involve any major stress on your joints or muscles, it can be safely used by people who may be too weak or frail for more strenuous treatments like physical therapy or chiropractic manipulation. Other benefits include increased range of motion and improved mobility which can help make everyday activities easier and more enjoyable for seniors suffering from chronic sciatic pain.
The Benefits Of Laser Therapy
At Newport Center Family Chiropractic we also offer laser therapy in addition to spinal decompression therapy which can provide additional benefits for older adults suffering from sciatica such as increased circulation, reduced inflammation, enhanced tissue repair, and even accelerated healing time. Unlike traditional therapies like surgery or steroid injections, laser therapy is non-invasive so there are no risks associated with it such as infection or allergic reaction. Additionally, most patients report feeling immediate relief after just one session, so there’s no need to wait weeks or months before experiencing positive results.
