Sciatica Q & A

chiropractic care for back pain

The sciatic nerve runs from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve. Typically, sciatica affects only one side of your body.

How do you know you have sciatica? Most of our patients say they experience mild to severe pain running up and down the legs and feet. They will say that the pain comes at random times, and it also worsens as time goes on.

Sciatica is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the lower back, buttocks, and legs. The condition is caused by the compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, which is the longest nerve in the body. Sciatica can be caused by a number of factors, including herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease. Depending on the severity and location of the condition, sciatica can be a quick to long term recovery process. While traditional treatments for sciatica include medication, physical therapy, and surgery, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is an innovative treatment option that is gaining popularity.

PRP therapy involves injecting a concentrated solution of a patient's own platelets into the affected area. Platelets are responsible for promoting healing and tissue regeneration, and PRP therapy aims to enhance the body's natural healing process. The treatment has been shown to reduce inflammation and promote tissue regeneration, which can help alleviate sciatica pain. While more research is needed to fully understand the efficacy of PRP therapy for sciatica, early studies have shown promising results, and many patients have reported significant pain relief and improved function after treatment.
