Do you suffer with shooting pain that makes it hard to get out of bed and go about your day? Frustrated by needing to rely on other people because you’re in too much pain to move? Neuropathic pain is usually chronic pain and severe and can be hard to treat. It is usually caused by damage, disease or injury to nerves in the body. Common types of neuropathic pain include peripheral neuropathy, diabetic neuropathy, post-herpetic neuralgia (a complication from shingles).
Sciatica is a type of neuropathic pain that causes shooting pain down the sciatic nerve, extending from the back down the legs. About 5 to 10% of people with low back pain have sciatica. Sciatica often goes away within a few months but pain relief is often needed. If not treated, sciatica can get even more painful due to permanent nerve damage and it can become even harder to move around. Some people even lose control of their bladder because the sciatica damaged their spinal cord.
A TENS unit can provide relief from sciatic pain and improve mobility while you recover.
Physiotherapists often use a TENS machine to help provide sciatic nerve pain relief. The TENS unit sends non-painful electrical pulses across the skin and along nerves to the brain to provide drug-free pain relief. The electrical stimulation helps the body to produce endorphins, a natural pain killer.
TENS machines can also be safely used at home to help manage your own pain. To help with sciatic pain relief, put the electrodes on your lower back near the area of pain. Adjust the settings until you feel some pain relief. Do the same on the back of your legs if needed.
