How is sciatica treated?

Many patients can treat sciatica with anti-inflammatory drugs. If that doesn’t work, the next step is generally lumbar epidural steroid injections, which means drugs injected into your spine. With these treatments, the risks are very low, and the success rates are in the 30-40% range. Sometimes sciatica goes away on its own. Other treatments include exercise and surgery.
