Brief Answer:
You need correct diagnosis of your condition.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, I had gone through your question and understand your concerns. In my opinion, old scar has nothing to do with your back pain. I suggest you to consult your primary care Doctor and to discus the possibility of a correct diagnosis of your problem with a valuable clinical examination and imaging study of your lumbar column (MRI). There are two main possibilities of your schiatica:
1. Herniated disc disease
2. Degenerative column disease.
Treatment modalities should be clear once correct diagnosis is made.
Hope this answers your question. If you have additional questions or follow up questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your questions.
