What is the best treatment for sciatica- injections or physical therapy?

What is the best treatment for sciatica- injections or physical therapy?

Hard to Say: Injections will give you pain relief early, but PT can be just as helpful but will take time to get relief. There is new research coming out that when you are in a lot of pain, you're body actually stops you from performing exercises so that you may not benefit from PT initially. So we believe that if you at least improve your pain first, you can then proceed with the exercise therapy programs. ...Read more

Maybe: There are a variety of treatments for varicose veins, depending on which veins are being treated. Foam injection sclerotherapy can be used for all veins, but the largest and deepest veins (the 'saphenous trunks') may also be treated by laser or radiofrequency ablation. Each option has its advantages and drawbacks. ...Read more

What is the best treatment for varicose veins. The dc.Told me that he will  treat them with an injection.Is a laser therapy better?

Varicose veins: There is not really a single "best" treatment, as treatments are tailored to your specific anatomy. Ultrasound is needed. The most common treatments are endovenous ablation with laser or radiofrequency energy, stab phlebectomies, and sclerotherapy. Often a combination of therapies is needed. Vascular surgeons are considered the "vein experts" as they can offer all possible treatment options. ...Read more

What is the best treatment for patellofemoral dysfunction? Currently my doctor has me on physical therapy & some sort of 'gel' injection into my knee.

Yes, you are correct: The treatment for patellofemoral syndrome in someone so young remains primariiy conservative with a focus on core strengthening. Hopefully your therapist can help to analyze the kinetics that are aggravating your symptoms and teach you how to correct them. Keep me posted as this is a special area of interest. ...Read more

What are the best/safest options of testosterone replacement therapy? Pellets/injections/patches/gels?

Pellet: My patients seem to get better and more consistent levels with testosterone pellets. In addition to better levels, the convenience factor puts it at the top of the list. Generally, an insertion for males will last 4-5 months, females, 3-4 months. For those who don't want pellets, my suggestion would be to use injections next and patches last. ...Read more

What is the best antihistamine for adjunct therapy to treat anaphylaxis (of course after epi... Injection vs pills ex: Atarax or Benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

Benadryl (diphenhydramine): Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is fast acting and is a good adjunct to epinephrine. However for the days following a severe allergic reaction, Zyrtec is great as it lasts a longer amount of time than Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and doesn't make you as sleepy. Atarax is fine but is a prescription medication and not indicated for acute allergic reaction ...Read more

Which treatment for sciatica--injections or physical therapy is the very best?

Integrate : The cause for the sciatica should be delineated first. Physical therapy is an important first step in most cases. In more severe or refractory cases, injection is indicated. In my opinion, the combination of injections and physical therapy is likely to be more effective than either one alone. ...Read more

I hav tennis elbow laterally (age52yrs)what is best home therapy for its treatment? Im taking ARCOXIA (90mg) twice, also did injections but didnt help

Physical therapy: I assume you have had a complete work-up including MRI for these symptoms. As long as there is only evidence of tendonitis, then conservative therapy with PT and orthotics may help. I have been working on additional treatment for tendonitis. You can google my name and then "Principles of Intrinsic Medicine", and contact me though links at those sites for more detail. ...Read more

I get repeated troncanteric bursitis helped for few months with steroid injection latest. Scan shows most tendons frayed and fluid in bursa and both tendons what does this mean and what would best treatment be now?

I get repeated troncanteric bursitis helped for few months with steroid injection latest. Scan shows most tendons frayed and fluid in bursa and both tendons what does this mean and what would best treatment be now?

Biomechanical fault: I'm not a firm believer of "chronic trochanteric bursitis" as a definitive diagnosis. Usually the bursitis is a result of biomechanical deficiencies throughout the low back, hip and pelvis. Many times, some weakness or deconditioning is present along with tight muscles, usually in the hips, hamstrings and achilles tendons. A thorough biomechanical evaluation is in order to get at the problem. ...Read more

Had injection 10month ago,but I still feel lump and pain at the injection site,also feel pulling down my leg.pls what can I do?

Hematoma: The lump could be a hardened blood clot under the skin as some bleeding might have occurred at the time of the injection. This is not a dangerous type of blood clot but if it has hardened it may not completely dissolve. It shouldn't cause any other symptoms,however. See your physician if symptoms persist. ...Read more

Is it okay to have severe pain at the injection site of a lumbar puncture followed by leg weakness?

Is it okay to have severe pain at the injection site of a lumbar puncture followed by leg weakness?

No, get evaluated: While the symptoms you describe may simply be a result of nerve root irritation, they may represent a hematoma- bleeding from the lumbar puncture site can put pressure on the nerve root or the spine itself. This can be extremely dangerous, and you should definitely get checked to rule out the possibility. ...Read more
