Sciatica describes pain caused by irritation of the sciatic nerve. Although it's often confused with general back pain, sciatic pain is associated with the longest nerve in your body, which runs through your lower back, hips, buttocks, legs, and feet. Our doctors are leaders in the field of regenerative medicine for sciatic pain, and we have the necessary sciatica treatment you need to be pain-free.
Sciatica Pain Treatment
Regenerative medicine is central to sciatica pain treatment and involves stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Regenerative Cell Therapy
We take advantage of specialized stem cells that help repair injuries and restore function. Since aging stem cells don’t perform optimally, our cell therapy involves injecting younger and healthier mesenchymal stem cells into the area causing pain, in order to speed up the healing process and eliminate your sciatica pain.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy relies on your body’s effective healing cells. We will draw a sufficient sample of your blood and place a vial into a centrifuge machine, which spins the blood until it separates platelets from other blood cells. By augmenting the concentration of platelets in the injection, we can supply the affected area with more proteins to boost your body’s capacity to heal tissues.
Sciatic Nerve Pain Relief
Pressure on the sciatic nerve can cause an irritating or shooting pain. Along with advanced regenerative medicine, we offer the following treatments to relieve sciatic nerve pain.
Trigger point injections use anti-inflammatory medicine to target muscle knots. These knots can be anywhere in your body, and when stimulated, they will radiate pain to other areas. If you’re experiencing this kind of discomfort, a trigger point injection might be the best course of action. The shot releases muscular tension so that pressure on the sciatic nerve may be relieved. Before the sciatic pain has a chance to return, we will work with you to develop a plan for long-term results.
Spinal decompression is a way of enabling the natural cushion of space between vertebrae to return. When the spine is compressed, it forces discs out of position. These misaligned discs press on nerves. Spinal decompression involves a specially designed table on which a patient lies. The table is adjusted to stretch or relax segments of the spine. Therefore, by relieving tension in the spine, the pressure placed on the sciatic nerve will be released.
Patients also find chiropractic adjustments helpful for sciatic nerve pain. Similar to spinal decompression, chiropractic care works to relieve musculoskeletal pain, thereby improving circulation and nerve function. Our chiropractors will readjust your body so that symptoms of sciatica are a thing of the past.
Laser therapy can target the areas causing your sciatic pain as well. Since any contact or pressure on the sciatic nerve elicits pain, inflammation is a typical contributor to discomfort. With specific wavelengths of light, laser therapy penetrates tissues and reduces swelling. As these affected muscles, ligaments, or tendons relax, your sciatic pain is relieved.
Sciatica is often accompanied by hip pain, leg pain, backache, or muscle numbness or weakness. Sharp pains may occur when sitting, standing, or walking. Anything that pressures the sciatic nerve can trigger pain.
If left untreated, your sciatic nerve pain may cause chronic pain in more than just the primary area. Our doctors will get the full picture of your pain and symptoms before diagnosing you and suggesting treatments for your sciatica.
