Is there any other methods to get cure from herniated disc and sciatica?
Hi doctor, I'm suffering from herniated disc and sciatica, I've followed the treatment so it relieves me. but when I stop this treatment, the pain come back. so I'd like to ask if is there any solution without drugs, example walking or swimming ...I don't know. thanks.
Hi , As diagnosed with PIVD with radiculopathy it should be mananaged conservatively with regular physiotherapy (spinal extention exercises), avoiding sternous work/exercise bending forward , warm compression with vitamins , analgesic , muscle relaxant (if pain ) n PPI under guidance of orthopaedition . If symptoms aggravates, bladder bowel involve , neurological involvement ...... then may require decompression . So in my opinion be in regular follow up and treatment accordingly including physiotherapy .
hope it ll help
Thanks n regards
