For most people, sciatica responds to self-care measures. Although resting for a day or so may provide some relief, prolonged inactivity will make your signs and symptoms worse. Stretching exercises for your low back can help you feel better and might help relieve nerve root compression.. If your pain doesn't improve with self-care measures, your doctor might suggest some of the following treatments...Physical therapy, steroid injections, surgery. Surgery is usually reserved for when the compressed nerve causes significant weakness, loss of bowel or bladder control, or when you have pain that progressively worsens or doesn't improve with other therapies. ..
