Frequently asked questions
Who's the company behind Sciaticalm
Medical Technology Ltd, a UK based healthcare device manufacturer. MTL's head office is in Guernsey with offices in London and a fulfillment operation in Southampton.
Is Sciaticalm proven to cure sciatica?
Sciatica is a symptom of an underlying medical condition, such as a herniated disc or other spinal abnormality which causes pain down the sciatic nerve. Sciaticalm has been shown to help manage the pain of the condition but it does not treat its underlying cause.
Is Sciaticalm guaranteed to remove all sciatica pain?
he level of relief varies between patients and can range from complete removal of all pain for some to a reduction in others. As with all healthcare devices its effectiveness is dependent on the patient and can vary.
What do I do if it doesn't work for me?
Simple, every order comes with a pre-addressed label for returns so you can easily post it to us for a refund. We operate a 14 day money back guarantee for UK orders.
Will Sciaticalm help me if my sciatica is serious?
In the most recent survey of 100 patients, the selection procedure chose the most serious cases. Many patients had previously had all the available treatments before being referred for the study. No participants in the survey had mild symptoms. 84% had relief using Sciaticalm.
Can Sciaticalm be used for other disorders?
Yes, there are other variations of Sciaticalm for conditions such as tennis elbow and patella tendonitis. Please contact us for more information if you're interested in these.
Can I use Sciaticalm anywhere?
Sciaticalm is light, portable and safe to use at any time it is convenient. Many users use the device under clothes or at home. Doctors usually recommend three treatments of 10 minutes a day but it can be used more often if required.
Can I use the device if I have a pacemaker/am diabetic/on medication
Sciaticalm has no 'contra-indications' so is safe to use when pregnant, for pacemaker wearers and when on other medication. It should not be used if you have an open wound or you are under 16 years of age without supervision of an adult.
Can I use Sciaticalm with other treatments?
Yes. You can safely combine Sciaticalm with any other treatment. Sciaticalm is safe and side effect free and does not inhibit the effectiveness of any other treatment. A 1984 study in the Journal of Pain showed that combining other modalities (methods of therapy) with vibration therapy meant greater overall pain relief.
Is Sciaticalm usable for other areas of the body?
No. Sciaticalm is specifically designed to help manage the symptoms of sciatica. We do have 'sister' products which are similar for other conditions. Please contact us for more information.
