Help with sciatica pain

Post by SueAnn

My mother has been dealing with sciatica pain for a while now. Her doctor only prescribes pain medication but doesn't really offer her any other alternatives for treatment. She would rather not have to take so many pills. Does anyone know of a natural remedy or some kind of therapy that can help alleviate the pain?

there are loads of different treatments for this, i was badly injured and ended up with this and was offered physio part of it involved heat treatment.

in your mothers case there needs to be a discussion with the doctor as to what else they can offer if the medication is not working.

other treatments can be chiropractor, acupuncture, massage, Steroid Injections, ice and heat treatments or in worse case surgery.

We just went through this with my spouse and we really thought it was sciatica but come to find out it was lumbar stenosis. Are these just similar or is it possible to have either of the two diagnosed incorrectly?
