What is sciatica? Your sciatic nerve runs down your lower back, through to your pelvis and buttocks, and down each of your legs. If you have sciatic nerve damage or if something goes wrong, symptoms can affect your entire body. With non-surgical treatments like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and injections containing Wharton's jelly and other growth factors, we offer the most advanced all-natural pain relief treatments for sciatica.
Sciatica Pain Treatment
Nerve compression by a bulging or herniated disc in your lower back is the most common cause of sciatic pain. Tightening of muscles in your buttock that lie directly over the sciatic nerve can also cause lower back aches and leg pain.
Sciatic Nerve Pain Relief
Platelet-rich plasma therapy uses platelets isolated from your blood to heal sciatic nerve damage. Platelets are separated and concentrated from your other blood components in a medical device before being injected into the injured area. PRP enhances your body’s natural healing process by delivering a higher concentration of healing cells to the affected area to provide sciatica pain relief.
Chiropractic care is another all-natural pain relief option for addressing backaches and other symptoms associated with sciatic nerve pain. Manual adjustments help to relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve and the structures surrounding it.
Sciatic pain can range from a mild ache to a sharp, burning sensation. The condition causes numbness, tingling, and muscle weakness in the affected leg. Sometimes, the pain can feel like an electric shock, or it might start gradually and intensify over time.
Sciatic nerve pain symptoms include:
- Back pain and aches
- Leg pain
- Nerve damage
- Burning, tingling, or numbness along the path of the nerve
- Hip pain
