Re: siatic nerve

[COLOR="Navy"]they can repeat the inject two more times after the first one. You can only have three injections in a year.

Have you tried physical therapy?[/COLOR]

Re: siatic nerve

It all depends. Have you had an MRI and what are the findings? Have you had a consultation with an Orthopedic Spine Surgeon and/or Neurosurgeon? They can evaluate you, your symptoms and your MRI findings to determine what might be causing your sciatica.
