Imagine experiencing a tingling, painful sensation that runs from your back through one side of your buttocks, down the back of your leg, and amplifying to an oppressive extent when sitting down. The pain and numbness radiates, burns, and throbs as it travels along your sciatic nerve, on occasion continuing its journey all the way to your foot.
Sciatica, is a symptom, most often of degenerative disc disease. For sciatica relief, many have tried everything from pain killers to surgery. Often, a year or more after surgery, the aching nerve pain is back.
Conventional Approaches Prove Insufficient
Pain medications carry severe side effects like kidney damage and stomach bleeding.
As many as 90% of patients are healed with forms of exercise like physical therapies. The treatment sciatica relief specialists in Paramus, NJ use involve physical therapy and chiropractic techniques in a holistic approach.
But still for some, none of the aforementioned treatments are effective.
Light at the End with Bright Possibilities
Recent research followed by phase 3 clinical trials found that fibrin injected directly into the damaged disc, in cases of degenerative disc disease, can facilitate regeneration. The deteriorated disc actually becomes healthy again.
Thrombin and fibrinogen are blood proteins and when combined, become fibrin. Fibrin when injected directly into the disc, permits the disc to re-grow and repair itself. For the first time, tissue has been regrown in the spine.
The entire procedure takes 5 minutes. Following a local anesthetic, the fibrin sealant is injected. An antibiotic is also included to diminish any risk of infection. The cost is in the range of 25% less than that of spinal fusion surgery, but the real test is in the results. Within 3 months, the treated discs grow to normal size, and new tissue continues to grow for over a year providing enduring results.
After treating over thousands of patients, there been no adverse events. The procedure causes every patient to grow taller. Actually, each patient is regaining their normal height as the disc(s) regenerate(s), patients achieve their previous normal stature.
The fibrin is FDA approved for purposes of sealing the spine as well as brain dura.
