TENS Machine Therapy for Sciatica

Updated: Oct 22, 2021

Are you suffering from Sciatic Nerve pain? Lets see how a TENS Machine can help reduce pain and speed up rehabilitation time.

What is Sciatica?

Sciatica also known as sciatic neuralgia, is mild to intense low back pain that may radiate into the left or right leg. Certain movments or activities can make this pain worse such as twisting, bending, or coughing. Sciatica affects 10 to 40 percent of the population, classically around 40 years of age. Sciatica is caused by compression or irritation of one or more of the five sets of nerve roots in the lower back.

How can TENS Therapy Help?

A TENS Machine Unit works by sending small electrical pulses through the skin to help block pain signals reaching the brain. It also triggers the release of your body's natural pain killers - endorphins. This is basically how a TENS machine works to reduce pain.

Many people who suffer from Sciatic nerve damage use a TENS Machine regularly to help manage the pain. TENS Units are very helpful and work over the short and long term with no side effects. Our TENS machines are often recommended by many health care professionals throughout Australia for sciatica.
