Back flexion stretch helps in relieving the pain caused by spinal stenosis which results in sciatica. Steroid injections, physical therapy, exercises are done to get the better of both spinal stenosis and sciatica. The stretching exercises are the most important and essential when it comes to treating the pain and fatigue. Conservative and traditional methods are initially recommended by the doctors, however, if they do not show any results, surgery is done by the doctor to treat sciatica. Minimally invasive surgery is done by the surgeon, i.e. laparoscopic surgery. The patients recuperate quickly post surgery and are allowed to go home after the surgery. Also, they are permitted to begin their regular activities quickly in comparison to the open surgery.
