Treating sciatica with Platelet-Rich Plasma

If you suffer from sciatica pain, you know that it affects almost everything you do everyday. Simple tasks in your daily routine can become quite painful and it can be difficult to find effective and long-lasting relief without resorting to medication or invasive procedures.

Fortunately, science has come a long way with regenerative medicine, using Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) to help people find natural pain relief from conditions like sciatica. Sciatica pain is a result of irritation to the sciatic nerve which runs from the lower back and buttocks area down to the foot.

Irritation to the nerve can be caused by many different factors, but most commonly, it is caused by a bulging or herniated disc and affects only one side of the body. Pain and numbness are classic symptoms of sciatica and are often exaggerated by walking, and sitting.

The pain can be different for everyone, it can range from an ach to stabbing or burning making it extremely hard to manage and even more crucial to get relief. PRP offers an alternative solution to sciatica for those who are trying to avoid prescription medications or more severe treatments like surgery.

PRP is a minimally invasive procedure that consists of a series of injections utilizing plasma from your own blood. By reintroducing a concentrated serum derived from your own body, it helps boost the natural healing process, restoring damaged tissue and nerves, providing fast and long-lasting relief from sciatica pain.

PRP injections are lower risk and typically have no major side effects. You may feel some soreness or experience slight bruising at the injection site, neither of which should last very long and definitely do not require any down time, you should be able to resume your normal routine immediately.

Because PRP is made up of your own plasma and cells, there is a very low risk for allergic reaction compared to other injectable medications. These low risk, non-invasive factors make PRP a desirable option for people who want to treat the problem at the source and get real, long-term relief from sciatica pain.

For anyone who has suffered from sciatica for any length of time, you know how it negatively impacts your everyday life, and you may be wondering what is the next step, PRP may be an option for you to explore especially if you are trying to avoid medication or surgery.
