    Sciatica Nerve

    I've had this herniated disc problem for about a month now and hve been seeing a Therapist that has been working on my back. Does therapy work? It seem to have gotten worst. My right leg and knee hurts so-o badly. Much worst than it did before I started this. My back has never hurted andstill it doesn't. Some days the pain pill doesn't even work.

    Hello, how many treatments have you had? Sometimes therapy can make back problems more irritated. Did your MRI say the herniation was pressing on nerve? I have this theory that if after about 5 PT sessions if you are not improving and getting worse - you need to stop it (from personal experience). THere are epidural injections they can do - this gives many people relief. I know a woman who just had nerve radiofrequency burning and her sciatica went away and she is back to her activities. There are many treatments available. If you are getting worse, time to go back to the doctor.
