In brief: Cure, Unlikely...

Sciatica can be managed effectively and can be relieved in a vast majority of people, but it will always require diligence on your part for nsaids, exercise, stretching and weight control/loss.
For those still having issues it may require treatments (injections, surgery, etc) to maintain relief as well.

In brief: Absolutely maybe

The goal with any neuropathic pain, such as sciatica, would be to control the symptoms to a degree sufficient to allow you to resume function and exercise.
Your body and mind can maintain the healing, in partnership with your provider. The underlying cause may or may not be "curable"; however, excellent results can be achieved and maintained without the need for surgery. See your pain specialist.
