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.

In brief: First the cause

The term "sciatica" reflects sciatic nerve irritation associated with spinal nerve root irritation, pelvic neuroplexus pathology, or by a compressing effect (e.
g. Pyriformis syndrome). Specific treatment depends on the cause. As a general rule nsaids & certain anti-convulsants are used. Physical therapy will be more effective if directed at the cause. Injections can help. Surgery may be indicated.
