This Study was performed to explore the amount and duration of the analgesic effect of DSCB in patients with sciatica and assisting the patient in overcoming his symptoms and ending his/her cycle of pain and disability. Methods: In total, 100 patients with sciatica were treated with DSCB injections. All the patients were evaluated by VAS scores and improvement of SLRT before treatment and 1 week, 1 month and 3 months after treatment. Results: After one injection, the patient’s pain was greatly decreased and they stopped taking NSAIDs. The VAS scores and SLRT were significantly better after than before injection. Conclusions: DSCB injections are effective treatment for acute Sciatica pain with or without nerve root compression
