In brief: Weeks to Months

Generally most people can get relief from sciatic pain doing the conservative care within 3-6 weeks.
If it persists after that, it can take up to 6 months to heal by itself. You may still be a candidate for epidural steroid injections that may help relieve the pain while your body heals itself.
