Sciatica affects around 3% of women and over 5% of men in the UK. Caused by a compression of the sciatic nerve where it exits the spine the condition causes severe burning pain in the lower back, radiating down the leg and often into the foot.

I was surprised to get instant relief - Mazhar Siddiqi
Hello and thank you for writing to me. I had been dogged with Sciatica for almost 4 months when desperation forced me to scan the Internet with the search term "relief from sciatica" - and that's how I came across Sciaticalm. I was surprised to get instant relief that must have lasted a good 3 hours. I know it's not meant to be a cure and I am looking to resolve the problem that caused this reaction. I don't believe in painkilling drugs. After having used it for around 2 1/2 weeks I am following the advice of applying it not more than 3 times daily and just 10 mins per session (though I am so tempted to exceed this) I am seeing a Chiropractor I was recommended soon and hope to be rid of this problem but I'll always keep my Sciaticalm close by just on case. Thanking you, Mazhar Siddiqi
" it works wonderfully below knee" - Amanda Haggis
It has actually made my life so much more bearable as my sciatic nerve is trapped and I need a spine operation. The strap for back must be made for a twenty stone person as goes round me almost twice. One very important question, I use device on my lower back but to my surprise it works wonderfully below knee to help pain down leg. Can I use for ten mins on back and then half hour later on leg, therefore six times a day or would that not be advisable? Best regards Amanda
Saw a Doctor yesterday and recommended it - Ken Broadribb
Hi I have to say it worked very well for me. After going to Physio three times for temporary relief and the doctors for pills which at first clogged me up and others which well...... 'Nuf said. I found the device gave relief after about a half hour of usage and both the sciatica and a later stiff neck, went away after a short week. Saw a Doctor yesterday and recommended it. regards Ken B
"works very well" - Susan Martin

"the pain relief is impressive" - Patricia Mitchell
Dear Sir/Madam, The device sent to me initially was defective which was annoying! However, having contacted you I was sent a postage returns slip to avoid any loss of money on my part. A replacement unit was sent and it has been found to work very well indeed. Within 3 days of use there was already a marked reduction in the pain I was suffering. Continued use has undoubtedly reduced my pain by a considerable amount. I have additional spinal problems which, it seems, will continue to aggravate my sciatic nerve. The bonus is I now have a medication free device which will eradicate most of the pain until the nerve settles down again. I have worn the device around my leg and around my waist although I found the waist strap too 'delicate' for the job. In either position, the pain relief is impressive.
Couldn't be happier!! - Christina White
