If you want to avoid steroids, opioids, epidural injections or spinal surgery….spinal traction is a treatment option to consider.
Why? Sciatic pain or sciatica is most often caused by a pinched nerve.
Two frequent conditions that cause “pinching” are misaligned vertebrae and bulging discs, or sometimes both. Both of these conditions are treated with the flexion distraction technique.
Flexion distraction is a non-invasive, gentle and safe treatment for sciatica — individualized for each patient’s specific circumstances. Our goal is to provide swift pain relief and also address the underlying cause, so pain does not reoccur.
Flexion distraction is a type of traction movement performed on a specialized treatment table that allows the doctor to gently and carefully stretch and “unpinch” the nerves with precise releasing of disc and vertebral pressure.
This traction-type motion creates separation of the misaligned vertebral joints and suction on the bulging disc, increasing clearance between the nerve and the pinching structures. By gently separating and opening vertebral (facet) joints or creating inward suction of slipping or bulging discs, sciatic nerve pressure and irritation is reduced.

We often treat patients that have failed a previous course of physical therapy or steroids or epidural injections and are trying to avoid surgery. Read what our patients are saying on Google reviews about their experiences:
“As a practicing surgeon having had three level laminectomies in Feb. 2017 with continuing Sciatic pain for past 2 1/2 years, I am compelled to add my positive experience to Dr Buonanno’s credit! I have undergone every modality of post Laminectomy therapies known & prescribed by competent Neurosurgeons & Pain specialists without relief for over two years. After my very first treatment by Dr. B on his traction, mobilization table I slept my first night without sciatic pain. I have continued treatments for two weeks with continued relief. His thoughtful mechanistic explanations & caring experienced concerns make the therapy even more effective. I will refer anyone suffering from Sciatica to Dr. B as well as continuing with his postural training for my own ongoing recovery.“
“Dr. Buonanno solved my sciatica and lower back pain in 2 visits. The Sciatic was a 10 out of a 10 and after two visits it was a 2 out of a 10. It was a fantastic experience.”
“My first visit to Dr. Buonanno was more than impressive. We just met and he knew exactly what my issue with my back was. I have seen a few chiropractors but no one was as knowledgeable as Dr. Buonanno.”
“Dr. B has brought me back from countless injuries and bouts of chronic back and neck pain. I visited a number of other chiropractors in the area prior to being referred to him, but not one could compete with the knowledge, innovative treatment techniques, and quality of care. I frequently recommend Dr. B to my friends and family, and I extend this recommendation to anyone seeking a solution to their spinal woes.
“His experience of several decades of practicing must make him the most knowledgeable Chiropractor in Greenwich. With a couple of visits he fixed my sciatic nerve which showed me what pain can mean, gave me the appropriate instructions for exercises and general moving around. There was no need for a lot of pain medication and especially not for opioids. I can wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Buonanno. He masters what no massage of physical therapy can do.”
“Did 7 visits with Chiropractor in Stamford without improvement. After 2 visits with Dr. B I felt 10 years younger. I was getting no strength off my legs when I started with Dr. B, 1 week later in a basketball league I play in, I’m leading the league in scoring and rebounding thanks to Dr. Buonanno. Thank you Doc B. “
Our treatment protocol is individualized to each patient’s needs. There are no up-front costs or long-term treatment plans. Each patient will be evaluated and treated according to his/her particular situation. If, after examination, the doctor determines that the treatment is not suitable for your condition, he will refer you to the proper specialist for further evaluation.
