Home Remedies for Sciatica
Dr. Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, says when you have an acute injury, doctors will recommend a cold pack. "They are good for the first 48 hours."
Hot packs, stretching and over-the-counter medication are other home remedies. "Stretching decreases the tension that you're putting into the different segments or elements in the lower back. It should be in to the point that you're not straining or making your symptoms worse, it actually should be the opposite."
