What is sciatica? If you are experiencing tingling, numbness, and pain that radiates from your lower back down to your feet, sciatica might be the culprit. Sciatica can be debilitating and prevent you from enjoying your life. Fortunately, we offer regenerative medicine treatments to get to the source of your sciatica pain.
Sciatica Pain Treatment
Sciatic nerve pain is caused by a compression of the sciatic nerve, the longest one in your body. This nerve originates in the spine and extends all the way to your ankle and foot. When your lower back is compressed, the roots of the sciatic nerve become pinched and irritated, which is what causes sciatic nerve pain.
Sciatica is named after the sciatic nerve. If you have any of the following symptoms of sciatica, it’s time to see a doctor experienced in treating this condition:
- Shooting pain that runs down the back of your leg, thigh, and calf regions
- Numbness in your leg muscles
- A feeling of pins and needles throughout the path of the sciatic nerve
- Pain and discomfort while seated
- Loss of bowel control
Treatments containing mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors are part of all-natural regenerative therapy and could potentially help your sciatica become a thing of the past. Injections containing stem cells and growth factors also include hyaluronic acid and other proteins that promote the regeneration and repair of damaged or injured tissues, helping you to avoid invasive surgery that may have a lengthy recovery time. These cells can solve issues with injured tissue compressing the nerve or even nerve damage.
Sciatic Nerve Pain Relief
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) fast tracks your body’s repair process. PRP injections are made using a small sample of your blood and can potentially reverse sciatic nerve damage by utilizing your body’s internal healing mechanisms. Platelets are typically a part of immune responses, and a high dose of them allows your body to recover quickly and naturally.
Benefits of PRP treatment to relieve sciatic nerve symptoms, include:
- Decreased back pain and leg pain
- Tissue healing
- Minimally invasive
- Reduced risks of side effects especially when compared to surgery
- All-natural pain relief as treatments use components naturally occurring in your blood
- No downtime
Chiropractic adjustments that strengthen leg, back, and buttock muscles are also effective sciatica pain relief treatments. Our chiropractic doctor also counsels you on the proper posture for sitting, working, standing, and sleeping to help you eliminate sciatic pain. Chiropractic care may also involve the use of K-laser therapy to stimulate tissue repair.
Many factors lead to sciatica such as disc injuries like a herniated disc and bulges. These disc issues occur due to poor posture, repetitive-use, accidents, and other factors.
