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. Platelet-rich plasma injections stimulate healing of discs, nerve fibers, and more to help you avoid pain medicine and complex surgical procedures for sciatica.
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.
Back to Health is a Disc Centers of America practice, which means we specialize in Spinal Decompression. Spinal Decompression uses highly developed technology to apply a distraction force to relieve nerve compression often linked with low back pain and sciatica.
Spinal Decompression has been demonstrated effective in relieving the pain linked to bulging and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and even relapse or failed back surgery. Since its introduction, clinical studies have shown an impressive success rate in treating lumbar disc related problems.
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.
