I have tried the NSAID's oral medication and taking them on daily basis but they don't seem to work? Any other remedies you may suggest?
Would you recommend lumbar spinal decompression machines, and what types would be suitable for my condition?
This prolonged numbness is a great physical impediment and I'd like to have it cured as quickly as possible. Again, thanks for your help.
1. Is the surgical procedure an outpatient or inpatient type of surgery?
2. How long does it take to recover from the operation?
3. Would you consider the numbness without pain the residual symptoms of nerve damage, and is there a special nerve healing medication and/or procedure aside from the ones you mentioned before?
Thanks for your prompt reply.
The pain has long gone, a week after I initially suffered from sciatica, about 5 months ago. But the numbness in my lower foot and leg still exists and does not seem to go away.
My physiatrist recommended that before going into a surgical procedure I should see a chiropractor. What do you think a chiropractor can do to relieve the numbness in my leg?
Again, thanks for your answer.
