What is Sciatica?
If you are suffering from Sciatica it can be a symptom of a much bigger problem. It is a common occurrence of the narrowing of the spine, when a herniated disc compresses part of the nerve. Sciatica results in swelling, pain and numbness in your leg. There are two types of pain a patient can experience with this condition. First, there is a dull pain which is usually resolved within a few weeks. However, in the case of severe pain the patient may need thorough treatment and care. If you experience bladder or bowel changes and significant leg weakness, you may be in need of surgery.
Let’s look at some of the common symptoms of Sciatica.
- Constant pain on one leg or side of the buttocks
- Increased pain when sitting
- Leg pain that is akin to tingling, burning or even searing
- A sharp pain making it difficult for you to stand or walk

How can stem cells or PRP treatment help?
By using cells from your own body, stem cell and PRP treatments distinguish themselves from other treatments. These treatments are non invasive and use platelets from your own blood samples to heal you. The treatment begins with a consultation with our physicians. Along with a physical exam imaging diagnostics may be recommended. Once the case is diagnosed, and the stem cell or PRP treatment is deemed to be suitable we begin by collecting a small blood sample. The platelets in the blood sample are then activated and centrifuged by our technicians. Once ready, the stem cells can be injected into the target area requiring the healing. The healing begins almost instantaneously and you can feel the pain relief begin over the area. Our physician may advise a second sitting of injections a week or two later depending on the severity case and the patient’s recovery.
