Sciatica Pain: Everything you wanted to know

Many are completely unaware of its existence, but the sciatic nerve is the longest and thickest nerve in our body. Sciatica refers to the pain that shoots out from the sciatic nerve and can be felt in various areas of the body, including the legs, feet, lower back, and buttocks.

Doctors recommendations for soliotherapy to relife pain

The sciatic nerve is the longest and thickest nerve in your body. Among other things, it is responsible for the sensation in your feet and legs.
Naturally, many are entirely unaware of its existence, until it begins to hurt.
The term sciatica refers to the pain that starts in the lower back, on either side of the pelvis, and shoots down to the leg. Sometimes the pain reaches to the foot and the tips of the toes, and sometimes it stops in the thigh. Many also feel it on one side of the buttocks.

What causes sciatica pain?

As in many cases involving pain, there are several answers, and it is essential to accurately diagnose the source of pain with a specialist. The leading causes of sciatica pain include pressure exerted on the nerve (by spinal vertebrae, for example), circulatory disorders, and inflammation.
The list also includes herniated or ruptured discs (the most common cause), muscle contractions, and any pressure exertion on the nerve, displacement of the vertebrae, injury (mechanical or degenerative) between the vertebral disc, and more. Vitamin B deficiency may also cause this.

What does sciatica feel like?

Sciatica is unmistakable, with stabbing, burning, or piercing sensations in the area. It sometimes creates a restriction on movement, especially when walking or climbing stairs. Sometimes weakness can also be felt on the foot.

How common is sciatica?

Whether you are an athlete or you spend most of the day sitting down, anybody can be affected by sciatica. More than 20 percent of people will experience at least one bout of sciatica pain during their lifetime, with most cases happening to people between the ages of 45 to 65.

How long does sciatica last?

The good news is that in most cases, sciatica pain goes away on its own in a matter of 8-6 weeks. In fact, few suffer from these pains for a full year (less than 1% of the population).

How is sciatica treated? Is there any advanced instrumentation that can help?

After you have been diagnosed with sciatica by your doctor, it’s time to treat it. For starters, it is important to stay active and move (to some extent), but if the pain is unbearable, rest is definitely helpful.
Some doctors will suggest taking painkillers or injecting steroids, but there is no evidence that these actually improve the condition. Physical therapy may also be beneficial and expedite the end of the pain period.
Another proven method is the use of advanced pain relief technologies, in the form of home appliances, most notably “Solio.” Solio is the first and only device of its kind to use radio waves to penetrate deep inside the tissue and heal pain, and it is also simple to operate and user-friendly.
Solio, manufactured in Israel, is designed in a way that can treat a considerable amount of pain from different sources (but not all of them, of course. Please refer to the Consumer Newsletter or the website information for more information). It is worth noting that when you use Solio, the pain healing process can be clearly felt thanks to the sensation of heat emitted from the device and penetrating to the depth of the hip, shin, or buttocks.

Stop the pain now with Solio – the only pain-relieving radio wave technology device.

Doctor Testimonials

"I am familiar with the use of LLLT, LED and Bi-polar RF energies for a wide range of applications, especially in indications where reduction of inflammation and stimulation of healing are required. Therefore, I was not surprised when I came across the same combination of energies utilized for pain reduction and healing in Solio Alfa Plus – a self- treatment device. I recommended Solio Alfa Plus to some of my patients, as part of their post-surgery recovery regimen. All the patients who used Solio Alfa Plus reported smoother healing and shorter downtime following surgery."Stephen Mulholland, M.D. Plastic and reconstructive surgery, SpaMedica, Toronto, Canada

"I tried Solio Alfa Plus on a number of patients who are actively involved in sports and in tennis for the treatment of Tennis elbow(/lower back/neck). I was so impressed with the results that I decided to let all of my patients with complaints about pain try it too instead of various topical creams/drugs that I prescribe to them. Most of these patients experienced marked reduction of pain, and their healing time reduced significantly. They all reported that the device was very easy to use, and none of them reported side effects or adverse reactions."*Tina S. Alster, M.D.Director, Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery Clinical Professor of Dermatology, Georgetown University Medical Center

"In my dermatology practice, patients come to me with many different skin problems and resulting pains. As it happens, medications, be they topical, ingested or injected, are not always the best way to proceed, due to a particular patient’s allergies, or possible bad reactions, side effects, or any number of other reasons. In those cases, my patients have had very positive results after using Solio Alfa Plus therapy for alleviating various forms of topical skin pains. The device can also be used in conjunction with medications since it can assist the healing process and speed up pain relief. Because this device produces 3 energies - LLLT, IR and Bi-polar RF, it can target problems on the surface of the skin, as well as all the way down to the dermis layer of the skin, which means that Solio Alfa Plus is applicable to many of the problems that my patients suffer from".
