Sciatica is a fairly common disease of the peripheral nervous system. At the heart of the disease is damage to bundles of nerve fibers, the so-called nerve roots extending from the spinal cord. Any damage or inflammation of these is radiculitis. The main reliably established causes are herniated discs in one of the spinal sections - narrowing of the spinal canal - narrowing of the canal where the nerve root is located - trauma - tumor - degeneration of vertebral discs - osteophytes (a bone process, an outgrowth that is not normal for a healthy skeleton, is a full-fledged bone mass , which is formed as a result of the protective reaction of the spine to overload) An attack of radiculitis can be provoked by metabolic disorders, infections, lifting weights, sleeping in an uncomfortable position, awkward movement. At risk of getting sciatica are professional athletes, people engaged in heavy physical labor, summer residents, as well as people leading a sedentary lifestyle.
In most cases, radiculitis, the symptoms and treatment of which depend on the area of localization, is accompanied by acute sharp pain. Muscle spasms can virtually block movement. This pathology is characterized by limited mobility in the affected area and the spread of painful sensations to other parts of the body. Temporary muscle weakness often leads to muscle atrophy and the development of weak paresis. Sciatica affects, the symptoms of which depend on the individual characteristics of the patient, most often the lumbar region. In the area of the cervical and thoracic spine, the disease manifests itself less often.
The essence of the treatment of sciatica with medications is to relieve muscle spasms and eliminate pain. Unfortunately, medical treatment for radiculitis is temporary. To consolidate the results of treatment, it is necessary to undergo a course of exercise therapy and take advantage of the possibilities of physiotherapy, manual therapy or acupuncture. In the treatment of sciatica, narcotic analgesics are used medically - muscle relaxans (metacarbomal and cyclobenzaprine) Simple analgesics such as paracetamol, panadol, aspirin, ifuprofen (nurofen), pentalgin, baralgin will also help relieve pain. Now more about non-drug treatment of sciatica. Physiotherapy helps to improve the blood circulation in the tissues adjacent to the root, improve the conduction of nerve impulses along the nerve fibers, and also reduce pain. There are many methods of treating sciatica with physical therapy, such as ultrasound, electrophoresis and dynamic current. Massage and manual therapy can relieve muscle spasms and blockages, which also helps to reduce pain.
