If you’re looking for sciatica treatment that is all-natural, safe, and effective, our doctors offer a number of cutting-edge therapies that are far less risky and invasive than many conventional treatments such as surgery.
Sciatica can be notoriously difficult to treat with conventional medicine. While the pain can sometimes be masked with pharmaceutical painkillers, these drugs have dangerous side effects, that may lead to dependency.
Medication rarely provides long-term relief because it doesn’t address the root cause or improve the underlying condition. We get to the bottom of the issue and provide pain relief so that you can get back to your life.
Sciatica Pain Treatment
Sciatica pain runs along the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back, down through the hips, buttocks, and each leg. When something interferes with the sciatic nerve's normal function — causing it to be compressed or pinched — the nerve becomes inflamed, leading to numbness or pain all along the path the nerve travels.
The treatments offered by the doctors at our clinic are effective against sciatica of all levels of severity. Our patients have experienced strong results with:
- Platelet-rich plasma therapy
- Trigger point injections
- Chiropractic care
- Other all-natural non-invasive treatments such as massage therapy
Sciatic Nerve Pain Relief
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) offers incredible healing power. When injected into the area affected by sciatica, they provide a powerfully simulative force to your body’s natural healing system. PRP treatments are only minimally invasive; the injection procedure is quick and usually causes minimal discomfort.
Platelet-rich plasma is made from your own blood during your appointment here at the clinic. The injection provides damaged tissues that may be irritating your sciatic nerve with growth factors so that they can repair.
Trigger point injections are another effective treatment for sciatica conditions in which muscle is primarily involved. The injection is made of a plant-based compound called sarapin that acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory. We inject sarapin into the knotted and nerve-aggravating muscle so that it will relax. When muscle tension is released, your sciatic pain also diminishes. Some patients experience immediate relief as a result of the sarapin injection.
Chiropractic care is a completely non-invasive, safe treatment that is highly effective for sciatica. As the doctor applies gentle pressure to the lower back's vertebrae, bringing them back into alignment, pressure on the discs is eased. Now that there’s more space for fluids to flow and nerves to fire, the sciatic nerve is soothed. You may even notice instant sciatic pain relief upon adjustment.
Sciatica pain can range from mild to severe, but in most cases, it begins in the lumbar (lower back) spine and then radiates down through one side, through the buttocks, the back of the leg, and often down into the calf.
