Sciatica & Sciatic Nerve Pain Relief

This common disorder is caused by compression of the sciatic nerve, one of the body’s largest nerves. It starts in the lower back and travels down the legs into each foot. A classic example of sciatica is low back pain that radiates throughout the buttock(s) and down into one or both of the legs as well as the foot (or feet). Common symptoms of sciatica include:

  • Pain – from a mild ache to sharp and excruciating
  • Electric shock-like pain
  • Pain aggravated by a cough or sneeze or when sitting
  • Burning, numbness, tingling, pins-and-needles sensations
  • Muscle weakness

Sciatic nerve pain relief can include minimally invasive procedures and nonsurgical procedures. Sciatica seldom requires surgical intervention. Typical sciatic nerve pain relief treatments include:

  • Short-term rest
  • Cold and heat therapy
  • Over-the-counter or prescription pain medication
  • Anti-inflammatory medication
  • Muscle relaxant medication
  • Epidural injections
  • Acupuncture
  • Herbal medicine
  • Massage
