Sciatica is a very common problem and one should not panic. Greater then 90 percent resolve without surgery. I usually give medication and complete therapy program that works for most patients. If symptoms are severe a nerve block is performed in the office. Acupuncture is also offered as well as decompression using special tables. Surgery only as a last resort after above fails.The first disc surgeries were in 1930’s so this treatment was not even offered years ago and patients did recover.
