Sciatica - Symptoms and Diagnosis

Sciatic nerve

Sciatic pain is most commonly felt on one side of the body in either leg as mild to sharp pain and occasional bursts of shooting pain through the back of the leg. Pain may be accompanied by paresthesia (pins and needles) and cramping as well as intensified pain during back related activities including simple tasks like standing up from a seated position. Furthermore, muscle weakness along the nerve pathway in the leg and/or weakness in the knee and ankle joints may lead to difficulty walking.

In some cases, the sciatic nerve may be irritated to the point of incontinence, the inability to control/retain bladder and bowel function. This symptom indicates that a group of nerves of the lower spine, the cauda equina, responsible for pelvic organ function, is irritated. As well, tingling and numbing may be experienced in the groin and genitals.

Spinal MRI

Generally, for sciatica and back pain the doctor will perform a series of nerve function tests to isolate the source and area of your pain. You can expect a physical, examining the range of motion of your legs and back noting the movements and areas that cause discomfort. As well, a reflex exam may be administered to determine knee and ankle strength. Further tests such as, X-rays, MRI scans, CT scans and Nerve conduction tests (testing the healthy response of specific nerves), may be requested by your doctor in order to determine the source of pain like trauma or a herniated disc.

How to Order

Once diagnosed, finding relief for sciatica and back pain will include a visit to a chiropractor or physical therapist. Calming the muscle's reaction to the pain and relieving the stress on the nerve is crucial to obtaining relief. Sometimes the treatment includes the use of sound wave technology such as our personal therapeutic ultrasound system. See our treatments section for a comprehensive look at our ultrasound and compression wrap therapies.


safety information



Inferno Wrap for the Back

An Inferno Wrap Energy Device for the back is one of the most helpful tools for a wide variety of sciatic back pain related problems. Through the use of the patented energy web, tissues are safely and gently heated - increasing blood flow within the treated area. Your bodys natural response to this increased temperature is to try to maintain a condition of homeostasis in a balanced environment (basically your body increases blood flow to the heated area in an attempt to drop the temperature). With the rapid increase in blood flow to the area (a term known as vasodilation), there is an increase in the supply of nutrients to injured cells and toxins get flushed out (including lactic acid, commonly found in trigger points) which promotes healing. Our Inferno Wrap for the Back provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief with no side effects.

Our Hot/Cold Compression Wraps are recommended as the top wrap by Leading Health Institutes like, Cleveland Clinic, several professional sports organizations, and countless medical professionals. That's why we sell them, because they are the best. We have noticed over time that our customers are so fond of our cold wraps that they are frequently coming back and ordering a second one - this way they can heat or cool one while wearing the other. The wraps are becoming very popular with baseball and soccer trainers, and the wraps can be conveniently stored in a cooler for quick application on the field when needed.

xyliss ultrasound

Ultrasound therapy is also a helpful tool for pain prevention of sciatic nerve related problems, and having a portable ultrasound device at home can be a powerful and convenient treatment tool. If you have symptoms or are recovering from a sciatic related injury or problem, using ultrasound on a regular basis before your activity or throughout the day will help relax your muscles, tendons and tissues, diminish pain and inflammation, soften scar tissue and contribute greatly to the healing of your injury.

If you suffer from pain after certain activities or movements use ultrasound therapy when you complete the activity and then rest. Limit the application of ultrasound to a couple of treatments per day (the manual will recommend treatment frequency depending upon the injury). In between ultrasound treatments, maximize your pain relief and injury recovery by using the Inferno Wraps™. When you're on the go, and not near an electrical outlet, take advantage of the "were anywhere" concept of our hot/cold wraps - the highest rated wraps in the industry. Proven Performance, Proven Relief - only found at MendMeShop.com. If you have been given a treatment plan by your health professional, make sure you adhere to it to ensure pain free living. In general, people who are committed to their therapies and exercises will have the best medical outcomes.
