Do you suffer from pain in the lumbar region your spine? This pain can be the first indicator of sciatica. One sudden move or chilling to the area is enough to induce severe lower back pain and lumbar spine pain – sciatica or inflammation of sciatic nerve.
Characteristics of Sciatica and its Causes
Sciatica (acute lumbosciatic syndrome) is characterised by its sudden severe pain in the lumbar spine shooting down the leg. It is a very painful and unpleasant disease: the so called lumbago.
It is a result of sciatic plexus compression in the lumbar and cervical spine with severe pain shooting down the lower limb and restricted mobility.
The most common cause is a herniated disc, or the so-called dislocated disc (a disc moved out of its normal position).
After episodes of sciatica with lumbar herniation, there is an increased risk of paralysis in one of the lower limbs. This can arise immediately or within a few hours.
Causes of sciatica include:
- a sudden move,
- chilling of the area,
- inflammation of nerves (neuritis sciatica),
- physical strain in inappropriate positions – e.g. lifting weight.
Sciatica Treatment – Rid yourself of the Pain
When determining correct treatment of acute sciatica, it is important to know whether the nucleus pulposus (the core of a disc) is herniated. If it is, neurosurgical intervention is necessary.
If the nucleus pulposus is not herniated, the treatment is usually conservative.
Local injections of Mesocain can be utilised to mitigate pain.
Non-steroid anti-rheumatics may be administered. In order to decrease muscle tension in the area, muscle relaxants may be administered. Bedrest is often recommended.
After the acute phase subsides, rehabilitation and physical therapy is required: for example, in the form of 3D pulse therapy or ultrasound therapy.
In case of mild pain which does not impede mobility, it is recommended to perform simple stretching exercises.
The base for prevention is plenty of physical exercise, good posture and a properly-chosen mattress.
3D Biomag pulse therapy helps treat symptoms of acute Sciatica.
Explanation of chosen terms:
- Lumbago – sudden pain and cramping in the area of spine.
- Lumbosciatic syndrome – a herniated disc in the area of lumbar spine.
- Mesocain – a local anesthetic and antiarrythmitic.
- Muscle relaxants – medicaments inducing relaxation of striped muscles.
- Non-steroid anti-rheumatics – non-steroid medicament with analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory effect.
Patented 3D Biomag pulsed therapy. How does it work?
The basic principle of 3D Biomag magnetotherapy is generating electromagnetic pulses. The generated pulses penetrate through layers of clothing and even body tissues to the place of application. These pulses have specially developed biotropic parameters (e.g. frequency, profile, intensity), thanks to which the pulsed magnetotherapy affects various health conditions.
The term pulse magnetotherapy is most commonly used for physiotherapy using the principle of electromagnetic pulses. The abbreviation PEMF is used in order to be concise.
Patented 3D Biomag technology ensures more precise and uninterrupted pulse profiles, enhances output, and allows pulses to come from various angles. This makes it a completely new and unique medical technology on the market.
What are the benefits of therapy of Sciatica
- Helps soothe pain and improves mobility.
- Has anti-inflammatory and anti-oedematous effect.
- Improved microcirculation in the area of application which increases the effect of administered medication.
- Can be used in home care thanks to being easy to control.
- Is a solution not needing extra medication.
- Is a non-invasive form of treatment.
3D Biomag therapy and its effects – as explained by MUDr. Peter Bednarčík, CSc.
The effects of pulsed therapy - clinical studies
The effects of pulse therapy (PEMF) on reducing pain in patients with sciatica are supported by many studies. For one a study performed in 2011 by a research team of Ö. Coskun, who explored the action potential of isolated sciatic nerve. This study proves that there is significant reduction of pain after applying pulse therapy (PEMF). It follows from the abovemetioned, that 3D Biomag pulse therapy can help reduce pain in patients with sciatica due to its analgesic effect. More about this scientific study.
Positive effects of pulse magnetic field (PEMF) are evidenced by clinical studies by authorities on the subject and renowned institutions. The newest list of these clinical studies can be found on this page. Contact us and we will gladly help to familiarize yourself with this expert data.
Our department uses pulse magnetic field application very well. We appreciate that not only is there an option to used numbered programmes, but also to set up our own programmes. The device is small and easy to operate with good output.
University hospital Na Bulovce, Prague – Physiotherapy department
We have been utilising pulse magnetic field treatment in our spa for more than 10 years. We use Biomag devices for both physiotherapy and spa treatment. It is very advantageous to combine magnetotherapy with other physiotherapy methods because the effect of magnetotherapy potentiates with other methods (analgesic, anti-oedematous, recovery and myorelaxing).
Bělohrad Peat Spa – Lázně Bělohrad
We are happy with the device. The applicators are also easy to operate, and treatment results are satisfying. Feedback from patients is positive. Average number of applications is 50 per week.

My son, in his fifties, often suffering from acute sciatica, Biomag used to eliminate oppression nerve root in the lumbar and sacral spine.JUDr. Alois Šimonů, Brumov-Bylnice
I suffered from back pain in the sacral and leg pain from knees down. We have been treated by magnetotherapy for about half a year and the results are very good for us. We use the device every day, the pain is receding, we bend and walk better.Marie Bártlová, Janov
I suffered from huge pains in the cranial back and the hip for two years, I was taking painkillers and it only helped for a short time. I noticed my health was improving after three months. I feel healthy at the moment.Hana Janoušová, Košetice
