Sciatica or pain along the sciatic nerve is due to compression of the nerve or one of its roots. The pain usually increases while bending down or sitting cross legged. Conservative management includes rest and some medications and Physio. However it better to get it evaluated and investigated first as many other conditions mimic sciatica.

For most people, sciatica responds to self-care measures. self-care treatments that might help include: Cold packs. Initially, you might get relief from a cold pack placed on the painful area for up to 20 minutes several times a day.....Hot packs. After two to three days, apply heat to the areas that hurt. Use hot packs, a heat lamp or a heating pad on the lowest setting. If you continue to have pain, try alternating warm and cold packs.....Stretching. Stretching exercises for your low back can help you feel better and might help relieve nerve root compression. Avoid jerking, bouncing or twisting during the stretch, and try to hold the stretch for at least 30 seconds... Consult Orthopedician for further evaluation...
