The sciatica pain slowly begins due to the lifestyle and habits necessary created by the pain of CBP - chronic back pain. It is a prolonged onset of symptoms culminating in the secondary diagnosis of “sciatica” or “sciatic pain”. Sciatica pain treatment is aimed at maximizing mobility and independence. Treatment is conservative in as many as 50% of all cases and sciatic pain will greatly diminish or disappear within a month with supportive treatments and proper stretching. Sciatic nerve pain relief has been found using moist heat in combination with stretching exercises such as hip swings ( face down, heels together, hips flat as you swing your legs back and forth to stretch the muscles) . For long term and longer periods of pain relief it is recommended to use interferential therapy in conjunction with or as a stand alone treatment for sciatic pain relief.
The use of interferential therapy in conjunction with moist heat prior to beginning exercising can greatly benefit the patient and the interferential therapy can provide long term carryover pain relief for days. Immediately after the interferential treatment it’s important to keep moving, not too fast, but move. If you sit for too long at a time, your muscles will tighten much quicker. If you’ve ever noticed that your pain is worse in the morning, after sleeping all night, then you realize as you get up and move then you are able to move with less pain which helps ease the pain. This is why moving is an important treatment for sciatica. During any exercise or movement, such as walking, the interferential mode may be switched over to TNS ( transcutaneous nerve stimulation ) and worn while exercising or if the exercise period is less than 45 minutes the Infrex Plus can be worn and use the rechargeable batteries.
