Why Conventional Sciatica Treatments Often Fail
If you go to a doctor about sciatica pain he /she will probably prescribe you pain-killers. This can help you at the moment and can decrease inflammation.
These drugs will not solve the real cause of the problem. They will only alleviate the pain and will hide the problem especially if you suffer from irritated or compressed nerve.
Many of these pain killers- especially anti-inflammatory and non-steroidal drugs- mustn’t be used for a long time as they can cause diarrhea, stomach pain, and bloating and other unpleasant health conditions.
What is the worst thing? If you use drugs which alleviate the pain than you could repeat actions as overloading the spine with heavy weight that are the real cause of sciatica and with repeating them you can only worsen the situation and the pain.
This is the negative side of the modern medicine. What is worse, a lot of people are suffering from sciatica for years although they use modern medications.
