Treatment of the disease should begin as soon as possible if a person has sciatica. Respecting this rule helps prevent the development of severe pain, spasms of the muscles of the back, waist, lower limbs, and dysfunction of the pelvic organs.
Early treatment is important because the spine is closely linked to the function of almost all organs and systems of the human body, because of spinal segments in pairs depart spinal nerve roots, which provide innervation of organs located in the abdomen and pelvis.
In that case, when the doctor, based on the patient’s complaints and the results of the checkup, establishes the diagnosis, it is important to not only get symptomatic treatment as directed at addressing the symptoms of the disease, but also the choice of the program survey, to be conducted simultaneously. If there is no detected disease that caused the symptoms of sciatica, and they appointed this treatment, there are chances of recurrence of a radicular syndrome in a patient.

- Traumatic injuries of the vertebral bodies, intervertebral discs, ligaments and muscles surrounding the spine,
- Degenerative-dystrophic processes in the discs, connecting vertebrae – low back pain, herniated discs in the lumbar spine,
- Malformations of the musculoskeletal system, which are accompanied by changes in muscle tone,
- Posture disorders such as scoliosis, and the treatment of sciatica, in this case may be required for patients relatively young age, and persistent pain becomes one of the indications for surgery scoliosis.
Prolonged exposure of the body in a fixed, physiologically disadvantaged position,dramatic weight lifting or almost any condition in which there is rapid stretching of muscles in the lumbar spine or the local blood circulation in the structures of the spinal column or others tissues can all become a direct cause of an attack of sciatica and may become an unfortunate movement.
Many patients, who for a long time suffered from sciatica, often do not pay attention to the advice of the neuropathologist who advised stopping bad habits. However, studies have shown that smoking, alcohol abuse, eating large amounts of foods, drinks rich in caffeine, of abuse diets that impairs the blood supply to the spine and aggravates the course of sciatica.
