Regenerative Medicine Treatments for Sciatic Nerve Pain
Sciatica pain and sciatic nerve damage respond poorly to many typical pain treatments offered in the Tampa Bay area. That's disappointing news for those having trouble working or just walking their dog due to their pain.
We offer two highly effective treatments that can reduce sciatic nerve symptoms, including regenerative cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. Both of these regenerative medicine treatments are based on understanding how the body naturally heals itself.
For example, when you get a scrape, your body can heal itself quite quickly. However, as you get older, healing injuries take longer and longer.
Regenerative Cell Therapy: When we provide stem cell treatments for sciatic nerve pain, we use only young, viable mesenchymal stem cells from donated umbilical cords. This is a rich source of healthy and vibrant cells. While your stem cells have aged with you, these have not.
These stem cells are proven to be highly effective at regenerating, and they can transform into the structural or nerve tissue you need to recover from sciatica.
Tissue banks safely and responsibly harvest our stem cells from Wharton's jelly, a special substance in umbilical cords. The harvesting process, called an umbilical allograft, does not harm the mother or child.
These young stem cells provide better results for our patients, including relief from sciatica pain.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP): PRP injections in the Tampa Bay area to provide sciatic nerve pain relief. This platelet-rich plasma is made from your own blood, using your body’s own natural healing substances. First, we isolate the platelets through centrifuge technology.
Then, we inject your own platelet-rich plasma where you need it—in this case, near your sciatic nerve. The result is all-natural healing that your body can’t reject.
You may think sciatica involves a problem in your hip, leg, and back because that’s where you feel pain. Primarily, sciatica is a problem with your sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in your body.
If something is pressing on the nerve in your back, you may still feel pain down the whole nerve, from your lower back in your hip, buttocks, and leg.
Symptoms of sciatica include:
- Pain in your lower back
- Hip nerve pain
- Leg pain
- Pain that shoots from your back into your hip or buttocks and down your leg
- Tingling, burning, or other sensations down your leg
- Weakness and numbness in the affected leg
- Pain that is worse when sitting
- Pain that is worse when you try to stand up
- Difficulty moving the affected leg
Sciatic nerve pain may happen suddenly or gradually. It is often caused by a herniated disc or a disc in your back that bursts out of place and then rubs against the sciatic nerve.
Unfortunately, it can be a very painful condition. If you have sciatic pain, you may have trouble simply standing up from the dinner table. Those who have to frequently bend for work or sit for long periods of time may need pain relief treatments just to get through their day.
All the regenerative medicine treatments we provide are designed to help relieve your pain with as little recovery time or medications as possible. Our minimally invasive, all-natural procedures bring about long-term healing for nerve damage, bone issues, and more that are causing your sciatica.
