Sciatica Treatment… Which One Is Best For You?
PLUS, LITTLE-KNOWN SCIATICA TREATMENT
The sciatica treatment that’s best for you depends on your specific condition… and what’s causing your sciatica pain, burning, numbness or tingling. The most common cause of sciatica is a herniated disc… specifically, a herniated lumbar disc.
Many people with sciatica go to a medical doctor. Your medical doctor may prescribe a medication for your sciatica symptoms. Pain medications, NSAIDs, opioids, muscle relaxants. You may also be given steroids – either via epidural injections or via a pill. These medications and spinal injections may help relieve your sciatica. But, for some patients, they don’t help… or their sciatica comes back when the medications wear off. To keep their sciatica symptoms tolerable, they continue to take the medications.
This puts them at risk of being dependent
on these often addictive medications.
For some patients, pain management medications may not be the best treatment for their sciatica nerve pain. They’re basically sciatica symptoms treatment. If you’re looking for an acute sciatica treatment, or for a severe sciatica treatment, these medications may help… as long as you don’t have conditions that make it unsafe for you to take these meds… and as long as you don’t have other medications that may interact with these new pain medications causing unwanted risks and side effects.
If you decide to take sciatica pain medications, keep in mind that they may only give you temporary relief. You should still look for other treatments for sciatica. So what are other sciatica pain treatment options?
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room
and cover back surgery or sciatica surgery.
Doctors and medical researches in general WILL NOT recommend sciatica surgery UNLESS you have the following symptoms: leg pain that’s so severe that you’ve had it for 6 weeks or longer, sciatica pain and symptoms not relieved after 6 weeks on non-surgical sciatica treatments.
If you have Cauda Equina Syndrome, surgery is recommended. Cauda Equina Syndrome means that your sciatica has gotten so severe that you’re now experiencing loss of bladder or bowel control or weakness in your legs that’s becoming more severe or worse.
If you’re one of the unlucky ones who need sciatica surgery,
you may get a microdiscectomy or a lumbar laminectomy.
In microdiscectomy, part of your herniated disc will be surgical removed. If your sciatica is caused by a lumbar spinal stenosis, then laminectomy is the sciatica surgery or back surgery of choice.
Back surgeons will need to make sure that you’re vibrant and in great health, because your response to the back surgery and your recovery will be determined by how healthy you are. Also, if you need to have another back surgery done… in case the first one didn’t work… or if the first one made your condition worse… you will need to be in good health.
If you’re wondering if surgery is the best treatment for sciatica pain, here’s the general advice for back pain sciatica treatment: conservative treatment in the first 6 – 8 weeks. Many patients avoid back surgery at all cost due to fear of the surgery, anesthesia, and fear that their condition will get worse. They’ve heard of others who after back surgery developed Failed Back Surgery Syndrome.
Now let’s go over non-surgical sciatica treatment options
or natural treatment for sciatica
We’ve already covered pain medications and steroid injections as possible treatment options.
Some people use massage as a treatment of sciatica. Just make sure you go to a massage therapist who has experience in treating sciatica. Also, keep in mind that some patients with sciatica should NOT get a massage. If your sciatica is not caused by a muscle problem… or if your condition is acute or severe, massage can make your sciatica worse.
Physical therapy is another sciatica treatment sciatica sufferers use. The physical therapist will have you do exercises that may help relieve your sciatica. Again, choose a physical therapist who has helped many sciatica patients.
If you don’t want to exercise but want to get sciatica relief,
you can try chiropractic treatments for sciatica.
Can a chiropractor help sciatica? Sometimes. It depends on many different factors. Many patients with sciatica who consult with a chiropractor like me usually ask me, “Can chiropractic help sciatica?” I wish I can tell them, “Yes, chiropractic cures sciatica 100% of the time.” But, this is NOT the case. I consult with them about their specific sciatica condition, I go over their exam findings, if they have x-rays or MRIs, I show them where the problematic herniated disc is.
I reassure them that I’ve helped hundreds of patients with sciatica, and I tell them if I think they will get sciatica relief from the sciatica treatment that I use. One of the reasons why I have a high success rate in helping patients with sciatica is because I also use a special modern machine that other clinics don’t use… a treatment that many sciatica sufferers don’t know about.
Here’s What Some Back Surgeons
Say About This Little-Known Sciatica Treatment
According to a neurosurgeon, “A lot of patients that I see are actually sent for surgery and I give them this alternative and in a great majority of patients, this lets them get rid of their pain without having to have surgery.”
An orthopedic surgeon said, “I have patients who I would bet would go into surgery after looking at their MRI and after examining them. And they’d come back telling me that after 2 sessions they were better and after the completion of treatments are completely pain-free. You can’t argue with that kind of success.”
Here’s what this sciatica treatment machine looks like:
This is a non-surgical spinal decompression machine.
It will stretch your low back and hopefully relieve your sciatica.
I’ve treated hundreds of sciatica patients after practicing in Santa Cruz area for over 16 years. This Non-Surgical Decompression machine has helped a lot of my sciatica patients. Being on this machine is so EASY and so RELAXING that most patients take a short nap during their session. For a lot of my patients with sciatica, being on this machine is the only time when they have no leg pain or foot pain or numbness or tingling… therefore, they’re able to finally relax.
