I have had sciatica for many years. When I am at home I lay flat with a gel pack from the freezer and it helps to reduce the swelling around the nerve. It also just gives relief. For me walking with good posture in mind also helps. Massaging the affected area also helps. You can do this yourself using your hand in a fist position. Massaging up and down your lower back to your bum area. I hope this might help someone as much as it does me, but everyone is different and has a different pain amount.
