Impact of Covid-19

During the pandemic, many non-urgent medical appointments were cancelled, leading to the delay and diagnosis of sciatica treatment. This led to a temporary decline in procedural volumes and revenue for healthcare providers and medical device companies operating in the sciatica treatment market. To mitigate the risk of virus transmission, healthcare providers have increasingly adopted telemedicine solutions for consultations and follow-up appointments. Due to concerns about avoiding potential exposure to viruses in healthcare settings and a desire to avoid elective surgeries during the pandemic, there has been a growing interest in minimally invasive treatment. The pandemic disrupted global supply chains, causing shortages of medical supplies and devices necessary for sciatica treatment.

Growth Drivers

The post-pandemic accelerated research efforts in areas such as telemedicine, remote monitoring, and digital health technologies. It increased innovation, and technology led to the development of new and more effective treatment modalities for sciatica in the future. Collaborations between healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies, and research institutions facilitated the development of innovative treatments and therapies for sciatica, driving market expansion. Favorable reimbursement policies for sciatica treatment by the government and private payers encourage patients to seek medical care and undergo necessary procedures, stimulating market growth significantly.

Increased awareness about sciatica symptoms, risk factors, and available treatment options among healthcare professionals and patients leads to early diagnosis and intervention, fueling market growth. With growing healthcare expenditures globally, patients have greater access to advanced diagnostic tools, and treatment options for sciatica are contributing to market expansion.
