Dear MendMeShop,

I, Judy Byrne bought this (Inferno Plantar Wrap) for my son Chris. I have one and just love it! He loves his too. He says he can really tell the difference after refereeing 2 ball games. I haven't been to the foot doctor for almost 2 years, I owe it all to the inferno wrap!

What Is Sciatica?

Location of the sciatic nerve

Sciatica, alternatively referred to as lumbar radiculopathy, is more appropriately a symptom rather than a diagnosis is more appropriately a symptom rather than a diagnosis since sciatica pain is derived from an irritation of the sciatic nerve. The function of a nerve includes relaying messages back and forth between your muscles and your brain.

While the true injury usually resides in the vertebrae and the muscles surrounding the lower spine, the pain is referred to the legs, thighs and even the feet. This is the case because the sciatic nerve, responsible for transferring sensory and motor information between the spine and legs, runs from the lower back (lumbar spine) where it exits the spinal canal, which houses the spinal cord, and then the main nerve carries down through the pelvis and splits into each leg. Thus, any pressure on the sciatic nerve resulting from a herniated disc in the lower spine, for example, refers pain into the legs.Sciatic pain can range from cramping sensations to shooting pain in the hip or down the leg as well as constant pain in the buttock and lower back.

Success Stories

True sciatica is technically defined by a pinching of the sciatic nerve. Typically those between the ages of 30 and 50 are more prone to back injury, most likely due to heavy physical labour or simply an over-exertion of the spine and surrounding muscles. Sciatica can be triggered by certain activities such as physical stress, poor posture and weight gain which increases pressure on the lower back.Generally, activities such as climbing stairs, walking, straightening the leg, and running agravate the nerve and increase the pain.

Location of the L4-5 vertebra in the spine

While a herniated disc in the lower back, from the lumbar vertebra L4-5 through the sacral vertebra S1-3,is the most common cause, other sources of sciatic nerve damage may include:

  • spinal stenosis

  • degenerative disc disease

  • isthmic spondylolisthesis

Other related conditions: piriformis syndrome and sacroiliac joint dysfunction

The variety of the aforementioned causes of your sciatica emphasizes the importance of a proper diagnosis. Generally, sciatica can be resolved by identifying and treating the underlying cause. An MRI, CT scan, or nerve function test may be necessary in order to determine the specific cause of your sciatica.

Although sciatica often gets better without any treatment, the healing process can be enhanced by following a few simple guidelines. Most episodes of sciatica are once-in-a-lifetime; however, some people have a tendency to have a flare-up occasionally. It may be necessary to adopt a lifestyle of preventive measures if you're prone to sciatica.

How to Order

Comfort measures for dealing with sciatic nerve problems may include physical therapy to help with muscle pain. If the pain is too intense for deep muscle massage, the therapist will often use sound wave technology such as our personal therapeutic ultrsound device. Ultrasound therapy has been proven beneficial in stimulating blood flow to the muscle mass.

BFST™ - Using Your Body's Natural Healing System

Inferno Wrap providing superior blood flow stimulation.

Your body can heal itself! In fact, your body starts healing itself the moment you are injured and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen. Your blood is the transport mechanism for everything that is good inside you. It carries oxygen, nutrients, water and antibodies. Proper blood flow is essential to healing. Unfortunately, when you injure your body you stop moving and the swelling sets in. That means your vital blood flow can be reduced to a trickle! If you want to heal quickly, you need to keep your blood moving and that's where Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™, or BFST™, comes in.

Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ promotes the flow of blood through the injured area without the need to exercise your already damaged tissue. You can really feel it work. Within moments of applying an Inferno Wrap™ you can feel the healing sensation and the increase in blood flow. During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, your injured area will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest. It's a soothing sensation and extremely effective. With BFST™ your injury is constantly being fed with healing, nutritious, oxygen and energy filled blood. This is exactly what your body needs to heal.

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 mild inflammation or pain after certain activities or movements use ultrasound therapy when you complete the activity and then rest and elevate your area of injury. 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 an Inferno™ Personal Therapy System. Proven Performance, Proven Relief - only found at MendMeShop.com.
