What is sciatica? If you have pain that radiates down your legs from your lower back through your buttocks, feel a tingling or numbness, and have difficulty going about daily activities because of the pain, it is possible that your sciatic nerve is the cause.
Sciatica pain can be caused by a number of reasons, including:
- Misaligned vertebrae
- Herniated discs
- Pinched nerve
- Jobs or exercises that involve a lot of heavy lifting or twisting
- Being overweight
- Living an overly sedentary lifestyle
- Poor posture
While medication or physical therapy can sometimes provide a moderate amount of relief, sometimes the tissue damage in the area requires more direct forms of treatment in order to treat sciatic pain at the source.
Treatments for Relieving Sciatica
The treatments that we offer at our clinic can help to relieve sciatic nerve pain. Because the causes can be directly traced to different types of tissue and nerve damage, we can often provide solutions for patients with this chronic debilitating condition as it treats pain at the source of the damage.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy involves utilizing the healing components available in your own blood. In this process, our medical team extracts a small sample of your blood and creates a concentrated solution rich in vibrant, restorative properties to inject into the sites of pain.
This process of creating a regenerative solution from your own blood, rich in healing factors and properties, and then reintroducing it into the body in a targeted way can often have dramatic healing results. The PRP injection introduces potent regenerative qualities and encourages cell and tissue repair and renewal right at the source of sciatic pain.
