What is Sciatica? Sciatica is an issue that negatively affects the sciatic nerve and can cause moderate to severe pain in the lower back, hips, buttocks, and into your legs. The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body, and sciatica sufferers know just how debilitating it can be when the pain strikes.

Effective Treatments for Sciatica
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma treas the underlying cause of your sciatic pain and not just the outward symptoms. The pain you feel is just a by-product of the nerve damage and pressure that’s happening beneath the surface. Our PRP therapy works with your body’s natural healing process to resolve the root cause and relieve the pain.
Here is more information about our PRP therapy for sciatica relief:
- We draw a small sample of your own blood
- The blood is placed in a centrifuge
- As it spins, the red blood cells and platelets separate
- The resulting platelets are highly concentrated and contain healing properties
- The PRP is injected into your damaged tissue to facilitate the natural healing process
Chiropractic care is another effective treatment for sciatic nerve pain. During a gentle manual adjustment, the pressure on your sciatic nerve will be relieved, which can help decrease inflammation and reduce your pain. As your alignment is restored and your structure comes back into balance, you’ll notice benefits like less pain and improved mobility.
What Causes Sciatic Pain?
Sciatic pain can be caused by factors that include:
- A herniated disc in your spine that pinches the sciatic nerve
- A bone spur on your vertebrae
- Nerve damage caused by a disease such as diabetes
These issues may result from a slip and fall injury, car accident, sports injury, or another event that has pinched or compressed the sciatic nerve.
Some of the common risk factors include:
- An occupation that requires lifting or twisting
- Prolonged sitting
- Some combination of the above
