Sciatica – What Your Chiro Does To Treat It

By | December 3, 2015 | Chiropractic Care, Well Being | 21 Comments

Motorised Flexion Distraction Therapy (MFD-T) is a traction based treatment option for the relief of sciatica (pain down the thigh and leg), back pain, and even neck pain.

By placing the affected disc into a pressure position, we can gently stretch the muscles, ligaments and even the disc, to restore function, relieve pain and improve outcomes, without the need for highly invasive surgery.

This works by repetitively “cycling” the back through stretch and relaxation phases, which has been shown to increase the negative pressure in the disc, helping to “pull” the herniated disc back into the disc.

This vacuum effect also improves the circulation around the disc, which is a very important step for healing to occur.

If we have taken X-Rays, and we notice the spine is slightly curved, we can also shift the position of the table to help stretch out the tight side of the curve, which has been found to be a helpful treatment for the effects of scoliosis.

MFD-T is most helpful in cases of:

  • Sciatica
  • Most disc injuries
  • Spinal Stenosis (either Central or Lateral)
  • Scoliosis
  • Facet Syndrome

Wall Angel postural exercise

This is a brilliant (and very difficult) postural exercise. It targets and engages all of our core muscles and shoulder stabilisers, and is an excellent aid in improving our middle back extension and shoulder  mobility. Done in conjunction with “floor angels” and foam roller extension, this is one of the best exercises to counteract poor posture through device (laptop, computer and phone) use. Just start slow, and do a little every day to slowly improve […]
