Hi..... Sciatica is nerve pain arising from the sciatic nerve. It can be produced by pressure on the nerve, where it passes through the buttock..... Sciatica that doesn't resolve itself after a few days needs medical attention....medication, including pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory medication..traction...manipulative therapies,...epidural injections – medication injected directly into the spine....physiotherapy and surgery as last resort.... Consult Orthopedician....
