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.

Medical and professional reviews on Solio Alpha Plus

“It is sometimes difficult to accurately diagnose orthopedic conditions or injuries that cause pain, and those that have been diagnosed, it is sometimes difficult to treat without surgical means that are usually applied only to the most extreme situations of pain. As a result, many of my patients are in constant search of non-surgical solutions to pain that will be effective, and drug-independent. To explore an energy-based alternative, I decided to use Solio Alpha Plus to treat five of my patients with chronic ‘tennis elbow’ pain. The response was very encouraging. Not only did the patients report fewer episodes of pain and reduced pain, but also in follow-up tests some of them showed significant improvement and healing.” Prof. Yoav Matan, Director of the Orthopedic Department, Hadassah Medical Center Mount Scopus, Israel

“I am familiar with the use of soft laser, LED, and bipolar RF energies for a wide range of applications, especially in indications where inflammation and stimulation are required and healing processes are encouraged, therefore, I was not surprised when I came across a combination of these energies in Solio Alpha Plus for self-care. I recommend Solio Alpha Plus to some of my patients, as part of their postoperative rehabilitation process. All patients who used Solio Alpha Plus reported a shorter recovery time and a smooth healing process after surgery.”.Stephen from the Netherlands, MD for Plastic Surgery and Reconstruction Surgery, SpaMedica, Toronto, Canada

“I have tried Solio Alpha Plus on a number of patients who are actively involved in sports and tennis to treat ‘tennis elbow’ and lower back / neck pain. I was very impressed with the results and decided to let all my patients who are in pain try the device instead of using the creams or various medications I prescribe. Most patients experienced a marked decrease in the level of pain and their recovery time was significantly reduced. They all reported that the device was very easy to use, and none of them reported any side effects or adverse reactions. “ Tina S. Ulster, MD, Director of the Washington Institute for Dermatological Laser Surgery Georgetown University Medical Center

“During my dermatological treatments, I come across many patients who turn to me due to skin pains and other skin problems that cause pain. Treatment with various medications, or injections, is not always recommended – whether due to allergies, various side effects, or other personal reasons. After treating with Solio Alpha Plus, very positive results were observed in relieving the pain of my patients. If necessary, medication therapy can be combined with device therapy. The Solio Alpha Plus device can aid in the healing process, shorten the duration of the pain, and speed up pain relief. Because this device produces 3 energies – LLLT, IR, and Bi-Polar RF, it can resolve a variety of pains on the surface of the skin, and in varying depth layers as well as up to the dermis layer of the skin. Solio Alpha Plus has greatly helped my patients and the resolution of the problems and pains they have suffered”, Dr. Judith Hellman, Clinical Professor of Dermatology, Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, USA
