Sciatic Nerve Pain – “When is it Time for an Injection?”

June 29, 2023

When it comes to sciatic nerve pain (aka “sciatica”), our goal is always to help people avoid injections and surgery, as well as pain medications.

However, there are times and situations when having an injection is the best option for more lasting pain relief.

This is especially true for specific types of nerve root compression.

In this video, I’m going to share my Mom’s situation with you: she’s an active woman in her late 60’s who’s having classic nerve-root-impingement sciatic nerve pain.

She’s made good progress with her conservative treatments, which include physical therapy, massage therapy and using an inversion table, but she’s basically reached a plateau.

At this point, considering an injection is a good option to help her relieve her pain and get back to walking 3-4 miles/day.

I’ll make several key points as I tell her story to help you figure out if having an injection for your sciatic nerve pain is your best option.

Leave my Mom a positive comment on YouTube before you go!
