What is Sciaticalm? Sciaticalm is a Class IIa Medical Device for pain relief which uses proven vibration therapy to help relieve back pain.

How does Sciaticalm help relieve back pain? The device generates high-frequency vibration to pass shockwaves through the skin. This vibration in the body causes the pain signal to be blocked on its way to the brain as the spinal column is unable to carry both the pain signal and vibration signal at the same time. This is a treatment option approved by NICE, the National Institute for Clinical Excellence.

Clinically proven to work: Several studies have shown vibration therapy can allow the user to experience signifi cant pain relief. The published study ‘Pain Alleviation by Vibratory Stimulation’, by Lundburg et all at Karolinska Hospital, Stockholm, showed that vibration therapy is an effective treatment for both chronic and acute pain and more effective than TENS.

Simple to use: Sciaticalm is small, lightweight & easy to use - it straps to your back via a velcro strap and is turned on with a simple on/off button. Treatment time is around 10 minutes and you can wear the device under clothes and remain mobile during use.
