What is Sciatica? Sciatica is a condition that affects the sciatic nerve, which is the longest nerve in the body. It is characterized by pain that can radiate down through the hips and buttocks and into one of your legs. Sciatica sufferers know just how debilitating the condition can be, as it is often challenging to walk or even sit in one spot for very long.
Chiropractic adjustments are an effective non-surgical treatment and for more severe cases that don’t respond to chiropractic care, we also offer regenerative medicine. If you’d like to start the process of relieving your sciatic pain, book a free consultation today.
Find Long-Term Relief for Sciatica with Chiropractic Care
If you are feeling the searing pain of sciatica and need relief, our chiropractic treatments can help. These non-surgical, drug-free treatments will address the underlying cause of your sciatic nerve pain so you can experience long-lasting relief and get back to doing the things you love to do.
When you medicate yourself to numb the pain, the cause hasn’t been addressed, so as soon as the medication wears off the pain will return. There is also the risk of doing more damage to the affected area when you’re under the effect of the medication. Chiropractic treatment will help resolve your sciatica, so the pain no longer exists.
What Causes Sciatica and How Can It Be Resolved?
The sciatic nerve is the largest one in your body and it runs from your low back, through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Most of the time, sciatica only affects one side of the body, but the pain is intense and it will still put you out of commission. Typically, the pain comes when the nerve is compressed by a herniated disc, bone spur on the spine, spinal stenosis or another issue. Age, prolonged sitting, obesity and diabetes are all potential causes of sciatic pain.
When you have a chiropractic adjustment, the pressure that’s on your sciatic nerve is relieved and the inflammation reduced to lessen the pain. Chiropractic treatment aligns your structure and helps restore balance so the pressure and misalignment that causes pain is resolved.
For severe sciatic pain, we also offer regenerative medicine treatments that consist of regenerative cellular therapy and PRP, or platelet-rich plasma. Regenerative cells are derived from the Wharton’s Jelly of donated umbilical cords and are designed to repair and rejuvenate damaged tissue to solve underlying issues and relieve pain.
PRP is made from a sample of your own blood after it’s spun in a centrifuge. The resulting liquid contains concentrated platelets that have healing properties to encourage your body to boost it’s own natural healing process.
