Hello there,,,,, is your diagnosis of sciatica ( which infact is a symptom) confirmed by an orthopaedician/musculoskeletal physio.
If that is the case then you would need Physiotherapy help (an x ray /MRI is needed to see if there is any problem with the allignment your lumbar Disc) in that case Physio modalities like SWD,Lumbar Traction,TENS along with lower back strengthning exercises would be of great help,,,however if your sciatic pain is bcos of Piriformis muscle problem(muscle in buttock) then modalities are of not much help....so origin of your sciatic pain should be found out,,,,also calcium & Vit B12 supplementation if required can be started.
Regards & take care.

Hi. Does your pain get aggravated with any activities. If it is sciatica then you shall need strict bed rest. Better to consult an orthopedic surgeon in your locality.
