Cure for Sciatica?

Question

What is the cure for sciatica? I don’t like taking pain pills on a daily basis. There has to be something I can do to ease the pain.

Answer

There is no “cure” for sciatica but a visit to a neurosurgeon or pain specialist may be helpful.  They can do local injections to the affected areas to relieve pain.
