Sciatica - What It Is And How It Can Be Treated

By January 16, 2011 - 4:29pm

Physical therapy can also be useful.

If your pain is severe and you are finding it difficult to move around, there are prescription pain medications that may help. Steroids are also useful in some cases. But for many, taking a few Advil or other over-the-counter pain medication and some time and patience will do the trick to keep your sciatica under control.

We value and respect our HERWriters' experiences, but everyone is different. Many of our writers are speaking from personal experience, and what's worked for them may not work for you. Their articles are not a substitute for medical advice, although we hope you can gain knowledge from their insight.
