Specialists in Treating Sciatica in Bellingham, WA

Sciatica happens when the sciatic nerve, which runs through the lower back and legs, is pinched. A herniated disc patient is more prone to experience symptoms of a pinched sciatic nerve. A bone spur, which is an outgrowth of bone on the vertebrae, can occasionally squeeze the sciatic nerve and result in sciatica.

What to Know About Sciatica

Sciatica is characterized by pain in the lower back that radiates down one or both legs. The pain is described as dull, achy, sharp, like “pins and needles” or similar to electric shocks. Other symptoms associated with sciatica include burning, numbness and tingling sensations. Sciatic nerve pain varies in intensity from mild to severe, and frequency may range from occasional to constant. The onset is generally gradual and not necessarily associated with a previous event. Sciatica is also known as radiating or referred pain, neuropathy, or neuralgia.

Regen injections use your body’s own regenerative abilities to heal sciatic nerve and surrounding soft tissue damage, making this an excellent sciatica treatment option. Enhanced Plasma therapy is another option. This therapy promotes natural rejuvenation and can provide relief.
