What is Sciatica?


Sciatica can be very difficult for a patient to deal with, but the good news is that you don’t have to deal with it for long. Sciatica is pain radiating along the sciatic nerve, which runs down one or both legs from the lower back.

It’s usually caused when a herniated disk or bone spur in the spine presses on the nerve.Pain originates in the spine and radiates down the back of the leg. Sciatica typically affects only one side of the body.Although the pain associated with sciatica can be severe, most cases resolve with non-operative treatments in a few weeks.

How is sciatica treated?


For some patients, self-care can go a long way to relieving symptoms. For other patients, self-care might not be enough. If the pain is substantial, then the professional might prescribe pain medication, like an anti-inflammatory, a muscle relaxant, a prescription narcotic, or another medication.

There are a number of additional treatments that can help to manage or eliminate ongoing pain. One of the most effective, long-term treatments is physical therapy. Physical therapy consists of exercises that will help you improve your flexibility, strengthen your back muscles, and lessen the pain.

A patient might also benefit from steroid (corticosteroid) injections, which can suppress inflammation and pain.
