In brief: Usually it resolves

Most sciatica can resolve on its own.
Exercise, even back extension exercise can help a lot of people. Resting in the 90-90 position - lying supine with the hips and knee each bent at 90 degreees can help relieve symproms. There can be serious involvement that requires more evaluation, and diagnostic testing. It needs evaluation if it persists, especially involving bowel and bladder use.
