If you’re struggling with sciatica pain, you may qualify for the SALIENT Clinical Study, now being offered at select centres in Australia. The study is for an investigational, non-opioid single injection designed to relieve sciatica pain. Participants in the SALIENT study will receive care from a specialist pain doctor, and do not require a referral.
