Hello rashmi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The pain of sciatica is due to compression of nerve and will be relieved only after the pressure is reduced.Please consult a Orthopaedic surgeon who will examine her and advise treatment.If pain is not relieved then your mother may need to get admitted and put a traction and with the traction the pain should get better and she will be fine.Please consult the Orthopaedic and discuss your mothers condition and the option of traction for her.She also needs to get a MRI scan to find the extent of the nerve problem.
