In more server cases, loss of bladder and sexual functions is present with Sciatica patients.

What are some Sciatica Treatments?

  Sciatica treatments may include the consumption of NSAIDs (Anti-inflammatory) and Analgesics (Pain Killers) for temporary pain relief. However, these drugs have been found to have side-effects in the body such as stomach ulcerations, upper gastrointestinal bleeding, heartburn and nausea and vomiting. Hence, Anti-inflammatory and Analgesics are NOT recommended for long-term use. Elective Surgery is another option for the management of Sciatica. This is done by directly removing the underlying cause, that been Spinal Disc Herniations/Prolepses or osteophytes and/or cutting away deep muscle fibres to minimise irritation on the Sciatic nerve. Spinal surgery often removes pain, however in some cases pain and symptoms can become worse with the risk of damaging adjacent nerve structures. Patients should also be informed that Spinal Surgery will require time taken off from work; often between 10-12weeks post-surgery rehabilitation is necessary.
