Hello there....., Take it easy, but do not simply lie in bed because this will actually worsen the condition. Do activities one is able to tolerate, and do not expect to feel better overnight.... The mainstay of treatment for sciatica is lifestyle activity modification and pain relieving medications..... Physical therapy is often prescribed for many patients with sciatica...Follow the instructions given by your Orthopedician....
