Non-invasive Pain Relief Treatment for Sciatica

Sciatica is a condition in which the person feels pain from the lower back
on one side which reaches down his rear and the pain is felt throughout the
leg. It starts from the sciatic nerve and hence it is called as sciatica.
Sciatica pain is known as shooting pain as the pain radiates from a point
and shoots downwards. The pain can be constant or can arrive at any given
opportunity and mostly it increases while sitting. People with sciatica
also usually feel a burning or tingling sensation in their leg.

The root of the lumbosacral spine is the area from which the sciatic nerve
pain starts. The lumbosacral area is squeezed and this aggravates the pain.
Sciatica is associated with degenerative disc disease, spurs in the bone,
lumbar spinal stenosis, a bulged disc or even a ruptured disc, a nerve that
has been impinged.

Sciatica pain can be unbearable but it sometimes the pain may resolve on
its own. However, to relieve the pain you should avoid sitting in one place
for a long time, you should take walks and if possible lie down and take
warm showers.

If you visit a doctor, usually you will be prescribed medications or
possibly even corticosteroid injections if the pain is too high. The doctor
may also suggest physiotherapy or sometimes even refer you to an
orthopaedic surgeon for spine surgery if the pain is unbearable.

Physiotherapy may consist of cold or heat packs, exercising the muscles in
the back and stomach, massages and electric stimulation.
