Many people think (understandably) that the worse the pain, the more likely something bad is going on. However, this isn’t true for sciatica. A homeopath’s job is to help manage the pain and address the nerve injury and healing process while the body does its job. The medicines help reduce inflammation, encourages blood flow to the painful area (which speeds healing), help ease painful muscle spasms that often accompany sciatica. And the good news is that for most (roughly three out of four) people, symptoms improve over a few weeks.

Homeopathy can help reduce inflammation and resultant pain that radiates from your lower (lumbar) spine to your buttock and down the back of your leg. This sharp, burning sensation or excruciating pain follows a path from your low back to your buttock and the back of your thigh and calf. The pain can be different to different people, for some its a mild ache and to others a sharp, burning sensation or excruciating pain. Few others can feel jolt like pain that is similar to electric shock.
