    Lack
    of Effectiveness of Bed Rest for Sciatica

    N
    Engl J Med 340: 418-423, 1999

       

    The conventional and traditional mainstay of
    treatment for sciatica with radicular syndrome is
    bed rest. A
    study conducted on 183 patients revealed that bed
    rest was no more effective in easing pain and in
    improving functional outcomes than no bed rest.
