sciatica pain therapy


sciatica pain OVERVIEW

Sciatica is a symptom of a problem with the sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the body. It controls muscles in the back of your knee and lower leg and provides feeling to the back of your thigh, part of your lower leg, and the sole of your foot. When you have sciatica, you have pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling. It can start in the lower back and extend down your leg to your calf, foot, or even your toes. It's usually on only one side of your body.


Low frequency pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) can provide noninvasive, safe and easy to apply method to treat sciatica pain, inflammation and dysfunctions associated with back pain, sciatica and neuropathy and PEMF has a long term record of safety. The analysis of various studies of pain, cell culture systems and clinical trials reporting the use of PEMF for pain cure has conclusively shown that PEMF not only alleviates the sciatica pain in the condition but it also affords chondroprotection, exerts antiinflammatory action and helps in cell health and has been developed as a viable alternative for sciatica pain therapy.

Whole body exposure to PEMF improved functional recovery and morphometric indices of sciatic nerve. Detailed mechanism of neuroprotective action remains to be investigated.  PEMF combine with chitosan grafting could be considered as an effective, safe and tolerable treatment for peripheral nerve repair in clinical practice.
