Sciatica can be treated in a number of ways, from spinal decompression to massage therapy.
What is that nasty pain going from your lower back area, down into your leg?
It is called SCIATICA. It comes from the sciatic nerve. It can even cause one or both of your feet to start to feel numb. Numbing is even worse than pain, as at least with pain, you are still having a sensation.
Numbing is LOSING the ability to feel. That is very serious! What triggered this nerve to “act up”? Without question, it is something going on with the spine in that area.
The sciatic nerves starts in the spine. If the spine is out of alignment, or there is a problem with the disc in that area, it can trigger sciatic pain.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?
Increase the Body’s Regenerative and Restorative Healing Powers
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is the first ever form of regenerative treatment for joint, tendon, muscle and ligament injury, cartilage degeneration, and a wide variety of chronic and neurologic conditions. These injections utilize your body’s own concentrated platelets, increasing your body’s healing process. Patients heal 2-5 times more quickly with the use of PRP therapy.
The patients own blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge machine, which spins it at a very high speed to separate the plasma and platelets from the blood. The concentrated platelets are then re-injected into the patient’s injured or affected area. We use this state-of-the-art therapy in conjunction with rehabilitation to help the body’s natural healing mechanisms and enrich your ability to repair and regenerate.
We Use the Regenerative Power of PRP to Treat Chronic and Debilitating Conditions Including:
- Chronic or Severe Arthritis in Joints
- Chronic Achilles Tendinitis
- Torn Ligaments and Tendons
- Joint Instability
- Rotator Cuff Injuries
- Muscle Tear and Injury
- Peripheral Neuropathy
- Plantar Fasciitis
- And Much More!
Advantages of PRP
- Nonsurgical approach to treating injuries and chronic pain, especially when other modalities and treatments have not worked.
- Derived from the patient’s own blood to help in the healing process, reducing any risk of adverse reaction.
- Speeds healing and recovery in post surgical patients.
- Safer than cortisone injections, with less side effects.

I Have Sciatica! Is This the Right Place for Me??
SCIATICA, that dreaded pain that travels down your leg and sometimes into the feet, makes every motion difficult. You do not have this pain because your system is low on aspirin (or any other type of drug/medicine). Since this is true, taking aspirin and so forth, does not get rid of it either. If it seems as though it has, it is only because it is deadening your senses so you don’t perceive it, it doesn’t treat the cause. If you want to actually address the cause of this pain (or any other) seek the type of doctor that makes people better WITHOUT DRUGS (and without surgery). Check out the simple and safe solution of CHIROPRACTIC.
