Treatment for Sciatica
There are many options when it comes to treating sciatica. These treatment options include:
• Physical therapy: If sciatica is caused by a herniated disc, this option may be particularly useful, especially if it includes a rehabilitation program.
• Prescription drugs: These are likely to include anti inflammatory medication, muscle relaxants as well as pain relief medication.
• Epidural steroid injections: These suppress inflammation around the irritated nerve, thereby helping to relieve pain
• Surgery: Surgical options include diskectomy and microdiskectomy
