TENS Machine Setting for Sciatica

Regular adult trips to the doctor are due to health conditions that factor in lifestyle and age. People start feeling the pain brought about by either work, daily routine, or degenerative causes. One of the most common complaints about body pains is due to sciatica.  Sciatica is a kind of nerve pain that affects the lower back, hip, and outer leg. Most people experience sciatica at some point in their lives. Most pain stops over time, but some persist longer and may require medical attention. TENS or Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation therapy is a famous pain relief method among people with chronic pains. An appropriate TENS machine setting for sciatica could significantly help reduce pain for acute and chronic patients.

Sciatica is caused by compression of a spinal nerve root in the lower back, often due to the intervertebral disk’s degeneration. It commonly occurs when a herniated disk, bone spur on the spine, or narrowing of the spine compresses part of the nerve. People are at high chance for sciatica if they have an injury, are overweight, have active physical jobs, inactive lifestyle, have poor posture, smoke regularly, and have diabetes or osteoarthritis. People with sciatica often report feeling sharp, shooting, jolts of pain anywhere from the lower back, through the hips and buttocks, and numbness in the leg. TENS treatment can help relieve all the symptoms of sciatic pain. With easy-to-use devices like the iTENS, even first-time users nowadays can easily find the right TENS machine setting for sciatica.

The Appropriate TENS Machine Setting for Sciatica

A TENS machine works by sending low voltage electrical currents that target the nerves. The electrode wires are attached to the skin through adhesive pads placed over or near the pressure points. The TENS machine setting for sciatica will vary with the kind of pain level that a person has. The time duration and frequency or pulse rates for acute and chronic pain are different. Acute pain is effective between 80 to 120 Hertz (Hz) for 20 to 60 minutes daily. Chronic pain’s recommended setting is 2 to 10 Hz, and 20 to 30 minutes up to five times weekly. The low-frequency setting for chronic pain stimulates the release of the body’s natural painkillers or endorphins. Using the wireless iTENS devices with their preset settings may help ease the process of self TENS therapy.

A single treatment can last at least thirty minutes each. You may repeat the session 2-3 times a day or as needed. Using TENS machine settings for sciatica is safe and effective. It is a non-invasive and drug-free method with little to no side effects. Some TENS machines now have the latest in wireless and wearable technology, like the iTENS. Connected via Bluetooth and launched through the phone, using a device for pain relief has never been this easy.
