Sciatix uses the power of acupressure to help compress the specific point in the middle of the calf muscle which stops pain before it can travel up and down the sciatic nerve, which can cause extreme discomfort and potentially debilitating pain.
The effectiveness of sciatix stems from its use of acupressure. Acupressure is an ancient Asian therapy that was first developed over 5,000 years ago and uses specific placement of fingers and pressure over certain points of the body.
Acupressure is commonly used for a number of conditions that include:
- Neck and back pain
- Motion sickness
- Chronic fatigue
- Mental and emotional stress
What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is the term used for pain and discomfort experienced by compression or irritation to the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve runs from the back of the pelvis, through the buttocks, all the way down both legs, and ends at the feet. It is the longest nerve in our body.
It can cause pain, numbness, and tingling to the area that radiates from the lower back and can travel down the legs to the feet and toes. It varies in severity, from mild to extreme, and can be exacerbated by sitting down for long periods, coughing, or sneezing. Some people with sciatica might experience weakness in the affected leg. It can also cause back pain, though it is more common to affect the buttocks and legs.
