Sciatica treatment options


Anti-inflammatory drugs - Only temporary relief

Anti-inflammatory painkillers such as ibuprofen are commonly used to ease sciatica pain. Medication use in general should be avoided wherever possible as it carries with it its own side effects and complications.

Heat and Ice - Ineffective

Applied alternatively, heat packs and ice packs can be used but are often impractical to apply and often ineffective.

Steroid injections - Painful with side-effects

A painful and short term solution, steroid injections are often given as epidurals but show no long term benefits and carry side effects such as fat atrophy and depigmentation around the injection site.

Heather Elaine Geddes: I have found this device really useful. I have a trauma to my knee from an accident when I was young and now I'm in my mid 50s, I'm experiencing tremendous pain in my back and left leg from sciatica. I use it everyday even when I don't feel too much pain. I've started swimming too and it has improved my life. I still have to monitor myself and not over do things. Hope this helps
