It is important to realize that sciatica itself is a symptom and not a condition. Sciatica is a term describing a group of symptoms (see
pinched sciatic nerve symptoms
) but it is really a symptom of a number of different conditions with different but often-related causes.
Sciatica is very common, affecting nearly 40 percent of adults at some point during their lifetime.
Common medical sciatica treatments include cortisone injections, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), hot packs, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and therapeutic exercises.
One study found that "In patients with acute sciatica, no difference in effect between NSAIDs and placebo was found." (Roelofs PDDM, Deyo RA, Koes BW, Scholten RJPM, van Tulder MW. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for low back pain. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2008, Issue 1. Art. No.: CD000396. DOI: 10.1002/14651858.CD000396.pub3) Treatments that simply focus on relieving the pain (while that can be important) do nothing to remove the cause.
This site will not dwell upon the common medical treatments that mainly focus on the symptoms. If you want to know how to cure sciatica and not just treat the symptoms, as is often done, you need to understand and address the cause of the problem.
Please note that when I say "How to Cure Your Sciatica" here or anything similar on other pages I am not implying that there is any product or treatment that cures anything. We can only help healing by removing a cause or provide the right nutrients or conditions (for example, improve circulation) and then it is our wonderfully-designed, self-healing bodies that bring about the cure.
