In brief: PT

Get into a physical therapy program, try chiropractics, accupuncture.
If this fails see your orthopaedic specialist.

In brief: Stretching

Many times acute sciatic pain will resolves after stretching the area abit.
The muscles will loosen up and help resolve pain. If not, then consider further imaging studies to see which exact nerve in your spine is getting pinched for further treatment options.

In brief: Phys Therapy

First, you should explore the common causes of sciatica to determine if you can prevent it from getting worse.
Second, look into physical therapy which incorporates pilates for core strengthening and yoga for stretching.
