You say that you are having chronic Sciatica. Having Sciatica is different from having Sciatica symptoms. All your complaints started after the fall. Your MRI scan report will reveal any cause (due to injury) for the symptoms or it is due to exaggerated Sciatica. There may be compression and irritation of the sciatic nerve.
Treatment is as per result and symptoms. Wait for MRI report
