Sciatica (acute)

Editor: | 14. January 2019

Characteristics of acute sciatica: Ischium nerve plexus compression in the lumbar and sacral spine, with pain radiating to the lower extremities, intense acute pain and limited mobility.

Purpose of magnetic therapy application in acute sciatica

In acute sciatica, the purpose of application is to provide relief from pain and allow restoration of the physiological anatomy of the spinal column, helping to eliminate nerve root compression and to suppress and heal possible inflammatory causes. Apply the program repeatedly even for several hours a day, until relief from sciatica is achieved.

Patient experience

I suffered from back pain in the sacral and leg pain from knees down. We have been treated by magnetotherapy for about half a year and the results are very good for us. We use the device every day, the pain is receding, we bend and walk better.

My son, in his fifties, often suffering from acute sciatica, Biomag used to eliminate oppression nerve root in the lumbar and sacral spine.

JUDr. Alois Šimonů, Brumov-Bylnice

I suffered from huge pains in the cranial back and the hip for two years, I was taking painkillers and it only helped for a short time. I noticed my health was improving after three months. I feel healthy at the moment.

Using magnetic therapy in acute sciatica

In sciatica, occasional pain in the lumbar area of the spine may present the first signs of the disease; this can precede acute damage to the intervertebral discs and herniation of its core to the spinal channel with subsequent compression of the ischium nerve, most often in the transition between the lumbar and sacral areas of the spine (L – S1).
In lumbo-sciatic syndrome (lumbago, crick), the disease is caused by ischium nerve plexus compression in the lumbar and sacral area of the spine, with pain radiating to the lower extremities, intense acute pain and limited mobility. Often,
sciatica develops after exposure to cold and inflammation of the nerve (neuritis ischiadica) or after physical activities in a non-physiological position. Sciatica is most often caused by a sudden movement, lifting something heavy in a non-physiological position, etc. In sciatica, painful contractions of the deep muscles around the spine develop. In lumbosciatic syndrome, the projection of pain varies according to the localisation of the herniation. If the intervertebral disc between vertebra L3-L4 is herniated, pain develops on the front side of the leg; if the disc between vertebra L4-L5 is affected, pain develops on the side of the leg – side projection; if the L5-S1 disc is herniated, pain projects from the vertebra, down the back of the leg, to the heel.

Application of magnetic therapy in acute sciatica

In acute sciatica, applications of Biomag low-frequency magnetic therapy are suitable both for nerve inflammation and mechanical causes, and it is possible to combine them with other pharmaceutical treatment. The analgesic, spasmolytic, anti-swelling and anti-inflammatory effects of magnetic therapy have a significantly positive influence on sciatica. Improved microcirculation in the exposed area improves the distribution and effect of prescription drugs.
