Now that we have discussed the how and why of Sciatica, we need to discuss how to treat it. When someone suffering with Sciatic pain goes to see their family physician, the doctor will usually prescribe some sort of treatment or medication, or combination of the two.

- Traditional physical therapy
- Over-The-Counter medications
- Prescription drugs
- Spinal injections
