What are some common sciatica treatments?

It is usually treated non-surgically with modified exercise, anti-inflammatory medication as needed, occasional injection and careful attention to ergonomics. Prolonged sitting, soft couches and lifting the wrong way all can contribute to low back pain and sciatica.
