What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is pain, tingling or numbness produced by an irritation of the nerve roots
that lead to the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is formed by the nerve roots
coming out of the spinal cord into the lower back. Branches of the sciatic nerve
extend through the buttocks and down the back of each leg to the ankle and foot.
What Causes Painful Sciatica?
Generally, the most common cause of sciatica is the bulging or rupture of a disc
(herniated disc) in the spine causing pressure upon the nerve roots that lead to
the sciatic nerve. However, sciatica also can be a symptom of other conditions
that affect the spine. These include the narrowing of the spinal canal (spinal
stenosis), bone spurs (small, bony growths that form along joints) caused by
arthritis or nerve root compression (pinched nerve) caused by injury.
Occasionally, sciatica may be the result of health conditions that do not directly
involve the spine, such as tumors or pregnancy.
What Are the Symptoms of Sciatica?
Symptoms of sciatica include pain that begins in your back or buttocks and
moves down your leg and may move into your foot. Weakness, tingling, or
numbness in the leg may also occur. Sitting, standing for a long time, and
movements that cause the spine to flex may make symptoms worse. Gentle
walking, resting, and movements that extend the spine may offer symptom relief.
How is Sciatica Diagnosed?
Sciatica is diagnosed with a medical history and physical exam. Your health
professional will ask you questions about your symptoms. Although your doctor
may be able to tell that you have sciatica just by asking you these questions, X-
rays and tests such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are necessary to
confirm a diagnosis.
How Can I Treat My Sciatica Without Drugs Or Surgery?
Traditionally, medical treatment focused on injections and pain killers, such as
non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to relieve pain. Increasingly, more people
are suffering unpleasant side-effects from the use of drugs.
Thermomedic Therapy Garments are a non-toxic, safe and natural therapy
scientifically developed to help relieve sciatic pain without the intervention of
drugs or surgery. In many instances, sciatic sufferers find this safe, natural
approach the best health care choice because often sciatica often improves with
time, gentle physiotherapy and thermal therapy. Thermomedic supports and
braces provide gentle compressive support to assist with remedial exercise while
reducing the risk of painful re-injury.

Understanding Thermomedic Bio-Ceramic Thermal Therapy
All tissue in the human body requires blood to survive. This process is called
Angiogenesis - the growth of new blood vessels. Under normal healthy
conditions, new vessels grow to restore blood to damaged tissue.
In the case of disease and injury, however, the adequate growth of these healing
blood vessels can be inhibited. THERMOMEDIC Therapy Garments use the
scientific principles of far infrared thermal technology as a non-toxic, non-
invasive therapy that may assist to enhance the blood supply that your body’s
cellular tissue requires to restore normal biologic function.
