In brief: Sciatic pain

The sciatic pain can be caused by spinal stenosis, nerve impingement .
.. Most sciatica pain will improve with time, exercise, and physical therapy. If your pain persists, other treatment might include medication, injections, weight management, acupuncture and chiropractic. If you fail all of these treatment, surgical evaluation is beneficial.

In brief: Core Exercises

Typically core strengthening exercises are the best to help relieve pressure and forces in the spine.
I would try and google some or look them up on youtube to see descriptions. If you can do them yourself, wonderful otherwise ask your doctor to get a referral to a good physical therapist for further assistance. If not helping consider seeing a spine specialist for other treatment options.

In brief: Sciatica

Would learn and practice the mackenzie exercises and strengthen your core muscles.
Occasional nsaids are appropriate. If it persists after a reasonable time, have it checked out by an md.
