What Are Medical Treatments For Sciatica?

Q:
What are medical treatments for sciatica?

A:
In some rare cases, sciatica cannot be cured or relieved with self-treatment or therapy. In this way,  you will need some medical treatments, such as surgery, to relieve your pain. To be noticed, if your pain has lasted for more than 4 weeks and caused your incapability to move and perform daily actions, you will need surgery and other professional treatments as soon as possible. Some methods of medical treatments include:

  • Microdiscectomy for Sciatica: In this surgery, only the portion of the herniated disc that is pinching the nerve is removed—the rest of the disc is left intact.
  • Lumbar Laminectomy for Sciatica: In this surgery, the small portion of the bone and/or disc material that is pinching the nerve root is removed.
