Suggest remedies for constant pain in the lower back and leg while having scoliosis, herniated disc, pinched nerve and sciatica
Hi and thanks so much for this query.
At your age, surgery is really not the best option. You will benefit much for physical therapy. I strongly recommend that you take physical therapy session for this alongside medications.
Unfortunately, medications come with their side effects but the gains given all the symptoms you have reported would outweigh the potential side effects.
I hope this guides and helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
Epidural injection of steroids!
There seems to be a consensus on the use of epidural glucocorticoids for adults with persistent radiculopathy due to a herniated disc who desire intervention for pain relief, understand that benefits are limited and short-term who are poor candidates for surgery.
Major side effect is that this leads to accelerated bone loss that can cause osteoporosis and fractures. Also, chronic steroid use can lead to weight gain and diabetes.
Hope this answers your query.
