I do recall some doctors who i believe are in california doing subcutaneous injections of this medication for sciatica.
The rationale is that a leaking disc causes significant inflammation including something called tumor necrosis factor which Etanercept would target. However, I have not seen any positive large studies on this. Perhaps we will see something in the future.
