Non-surgical treatment of lumbar radiculopathy
The objective of this paper is to give insight into evidence-based recommendations on key clinical questions regarding treatment of lumbar disc herniation with radiculopathy. This paper is based on the recently published Danish national clinical guideline for non-operative treatment. Limited evidence is found regarding non-surgical treatment of patients with lumbar radiculopathy. Physiotherapy, in the form of group sessions, seems to have the best level of evidence. However, evidence is still very limited and of poor quality. No evidence has been found with regards to acupuncture or manipulation therapy.
