If you are experiencing mild to debilitating lower back pain that sometimes radiates down your leg, it might be sciatica. What is sciatica? Sciatica can strike suddenly or may develop gradually. The condition causes chronic pain along the sciatic nerve, which runs from your lower back through your buttocks and down each leg.
If you suffer from sciatic pain, don't wait to reclaim your active life. Our pain relief center serves patients throughout Columbus, and we offer minimally invasive regenerative medicine solutions to treat sciatica.
Sciatica Pain Treatment
A pinched or compressed nerve causes sciatica. Your sciatic nerve can become compressed because of a herniated disc in your spine or by a bone spur. Complications due to pregnancy and muscle spasms can also cause sciatic nerve pain.
Risk factors that increase your chances of developing sciatica include:
- A sedentary lifestyle
Injections containing Wharton's jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells can combat and potentially heal the painful effects and associated symptoms of sciatica. Treatments containing stem cells provide a rich source of undifferentiated stem cells with unique anti-inflammatory properties. These cells can regenerate injured tissue that might be compressing the sciatic nerve.
Platelet-rich plasma injections harness the healing components of your blood to relieve pain and help you heal. We use a sample of your blood, which is processed at high speed to separate platelets from other blood cells. Platelets and growth factors can help heal injuries and naturally target the root causes of your sciatic nerve pain.
Chiropractic care helps your body heal itself with non-invasive, drug-free treatment. Chiropractic adjustments and other modalities can help reduce inflammation and control sciatic pain. Spinal adjustments also help to increase circulation, reduce muscle spasms, cramping, swelling, stiffness, and pain.
Sciatic Nerve Pain Relief
Regenerative medicine offers minimally invasive sciatica pain treatment to significantly reduce pain while enhancing your quality of life. Regenerative therapy provides favorable results for chronic sciatica pain and other degenerative spine conditions, including nerve pain and herniated discs.
Pain starting in your lower back that radiates downward is commonly associated with sciatica or sciatic nerve damage. You may also experience pain along any part of your sciatic nerve, including in your hips, buttocks, the back of your thighs, or calves.
Sciatica pain can be severe and usually only affects one side of your body.
