Welcome to the medhelp neurology forum. Thanks for writing in. Sciatica is pain resulting from irritation of sciatic nerve. it is typically felt from the low back to behind the thigh and radiating down below the knee. It is most commonly caused due to a herniated disc or adjacent bone, tumor, muscle irritating the nerve. treatment options include addressing the underlying cause for the symptoms, medications to relieve pain and inflammation and relax muscles, physical therapy. Surgical options for persisting sciatica includes nerve decompression at the lower spine level. Consult an orthopaedician for prescription of pain medicines and muscle relaxants. I hope this helps. Feel free to contact me again for any clarification.

On a short-term basis oral prednisone is usually effective. It is inappropriate to continue on prednisone because in the long run, it causes adrenal gland atrophy, further deterioration of the discs and increases the chances for cancer and opportunistic infections.

Special physicial exercises will help, as well as a TENS device,  You fill need a half -dozen instructional sessions from a rehabilitation specialist.
