You could be suffering from sciatic nerve damage if you experience chronic, sharp shooting pain radiating down the back of your legs and into your toes. Our doctor is highly skilled in innovative, all-natural pain relief using regenerative medicine treatments to provide you with sciatica pain relief.
Sciatica Pain Treatment
Regenerative medicine continues to be successful as a breakthrough, minimally invasive group of therapies for painful sciatic nerve symptoms. Regenerative cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma injections stimulate healing of discs, nerve fibers, and more to help you avoid pain medicine and complex surgical procedures for sciatica.
Regenerative Cell Therapy
Regenerative cell therapy involves injecting the affected area in the spine or hip with stem cells to stimulate the healing process. Stem cell injections boost your body’s self-repair and regeneration abilities to treat damaged and injured tissues.
There are several different sources and types of stem cells. Our clinic utilizes birth tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells obtained from Wharton’s jelly during umbilical allografts conducted on the day of birth. We source these stem cells from trusted tissue banks that follow guidelines set by government health agencies like the FDA. Healthy mothers screened for infectious diseases donate these bioactive birth materials.
We source the best samples for our clients, and these young stems cells are scientifically proven to be immune privileged, so your body readily accepts them. Our regenerative cell tissue samples have restorative and anti-inflammatory properties to treat the root causes of your sciatic pain, whether the nerve itself is damaged or surrounding structures are injured and affecting the nerve.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
PRP injections, containing a high concentration of platelets, are introduced into the areas affected by sciatica to enhance your body’s innate healing mechanisms. Platelets contain growth factors and other biological healing elements that are beneficial to treating sciatica symptoms like hip pain, hip nerve pain, backache, leg pain, and more.
Chiropractic treatment and physiotherapy are also useful for sciatic pain relief. Adjustments can reduce spinal stress and inflammation to relieve sciatic nerve symptoms and eliminate your pain.
Sciatic Nerve Pain Relief
Sciatic pain is usually caused by slipped, bulging, or herniated disc, or similar conditions that place pressure on your sciatic nerve. Your sciatic nerve travels through the lower half of the body, and when compressed, it results in pain in the lower back hips, buttocks, and legs that can make walking difficult.
Our sciatic nerve pain relief treatments are minimally invasive, same-day, in-office procedures that require minimal (if any)
downtime. After a regenerative cell or PRP injection or chiropractic appointment, you can quickly return to your everyday activities. Treatments are safe, and side effects are practically non-existent.
Sciatic nerve pain may present as hip pain, backache, and leg pain. If you have sciatica, you may feel severe pain or a burning sensation in the hip, buttock, or thigh area that causes discomfort when you sit, stand, or walk.
Sciatica may be caused by:
- Wear and tear due to aging
- Back strain
- Neck strain
- Repetitive physical activity
- Poor posture
- Heavy lifting
- Physical injury
People over 60 have an increased risk of developing sciatica, as are pregnant women and people who are obese. Although occupations that involve frequent twisting or turning place you at higher risk of sciatica, remaining stationary for long hours also contributes to the disorder.
