Lumbosciatica

Effects:



  • Analgesic action through the release of endorphins


  • Increase in blood flow and sedation of chronic muscular pains

Usage:


Analgesic current specifically adapted to pains in the lower region of the back (lumbar region) associated with irradiating pain in the buttocks, back of the thigh, behind the leg to the foot.

Example:

Muscular pains of the low back region combined with pains in the buttocks and the backs of the thighs

Low-back pain is the most frequently encountered pain. In a standing position, the entire weight of the trunk is concentrated on the joints between the last vertebrae and the sacrum. The low back region is therefore under particular strain. The discs between the vertebrae are crushed and the lumbar muscles are contracted and painful.
The discs between the last two vertebrae or between the last vertebra and the sacrum often deteriorate through pressure on the vertebrae. This deterioration may be responsible for irritation, or even compression, of the nerve roots which start from the spine and descend to the buttocks and legs. The pain affects not only the lower back but also descends to one side of the buttocks, the back of the thigh and sometimes as far as the leg. In this case, this is lumbosciatica for which a doctor must always be consulted, in order to assess the degree of compression of the nerve roots and determine the initiation of treatment.
The specific currents of the Compex Lumbosciatica programme provide effective treatment against the pain, but they must always be used as a complement to other treatments prescribed by your doctor.
