The pain of sciatica is very bad and those who are suffering with the disease know how bad the feeling is. During the olden days, there was no option for a sciatica patient but to rely on traditional physiotherapy treatment methods, but now-a-days sciatica surgery is proving good for many. The sciatica surgery not only improves condition of the patient from stiffness of the nerve cells but it also acts in the root of the problem to cure it at once. However, it is recommended that sciatica surgery should only be conducted under the guidance of experienced surgeon. Prior to sciatica surgery days, doctors used to cure this painful disease through various exercises and therapies or both simultaneously. The rates of success for these types of treatment are very less in comparison to the magical effects of sciatica surgery.
Sciatica is more associated with pain in nerve cells due to potential complications. This pain is sometimes very severe and the patients can not bear it without taking proper pain killers. There are various kinds of this disease. In some cases it is found that the nerves are affected from the spinal cord to the lower part, but in some cases it is less affected. There are different approaches for the sciatica surgery in several different cases. It is therefore, very important to go through sciatica surgery by experienced surgeons only. Some of the cases have very severe problem associated with their spinal cord and in these cases there is potential risk to the life of patient while the sciatica surgery is being conducted.
There are several misconceptions associated with sciatica surgery. One of such is the bad affect of surgery in this minor problem. First of all let us tell the patients that this disease is not a minor problem, but it is associated with the nerves and in the later stages, the patient starts loosing control of their body parts allowing partial paralysis. If a proper treatment method like sciatica surgery is not considered in the beginning stages, it becomes very difficult to treat the disease.
Some people don`t choose sciatica surgery because they think that the surgery is very costly. But, it is common error. The cost associated with sciatica surgery is pretty less in comparison to other surgeries. But, if the problem is associated with spinal cord of the patient, then the cost goes a bit up. However, if the patient wants a long term relief from the disease he should definitely go for sciatica surgery.
Here is one more suggestion. If your sciatica problem is not too old and it is the beginning stage, then you can choose one physiotherapy method to get rid of it. The physiotherapy method works better in starting stages but if the case is complicated and has history, one should definitely choose sciatica surgery. Normally, many of the cases of sciatica are discovered in the beginning stages and therefore, most of the patients choose alternative methods other than sciatica surgery. Only a few cases where treatment has been delayed or the patient is not treated at all go for treatment through surgery.
