how do you treat sciatic nerve injury?

Sciatiic damage

Neuropathy
Sciatic nerve damage can occur from a number of different conditions. Most commonly disc herniations can result in damage to the nerve roots coming out of the spinal cord that give rise to the sciatic nerve. Other more peripheral problems can also cause sciatic nerve injury such as piriformis syndrome. The injury can become permanent if the underlying cause is not identified and treated.

Dr. William Newton answered:

What to do for obturator nerve injury?

Not common

Nerve_damage
This is not a common injury. Knowing the cause would help. Most nerve injuries will heal with time. This nerve provides both muscular control and sensation. If there is no weakness of the muscles that close your legs then that is a good sign. Pain should improve with time and meds to control neuropathic pain. This pain may ultimately turn to numbness in the same area.

How long would sciatic nerve injury last?

Sciatica healing

Nerve_injury
Pain from a pinched nerve will oftentimes heal in the 6-18 week range. Delay beyond that usually warrants surgery to speed up the recovery and return to normal function. If you chose not to have surgery, as time passes, 3-5 years, the end result of nonsurgical treatment approximates that of diskectomy surgery. Only difference is the quicker return to work/function with surgery.

Superior gluteal nerve injury may occur as a result of injections to the buttock, hip surgery, pelvic or hip fractures.
