Prognosis of Sciatica

The prognosis of sciatica is usually very good. Most of the time, the sciatic pain may last from a few days to a mere few weeks. Though it is rare, the pain may become persistent sometime. Chronic sciatica may lead to disabilities. The condition recurs once it has occurred and sometimes it occurs without any symptoms leading to the full blown condition.

The recuperation is faster with rest. When you are recovering from sciatica, try to avoid twisting your back or bending too much. If you keep moving or do not rest your back, it could aggravate your condition and delay the healing of your back. This could also eventually lead to a disability.
