What is a sciatica massage

The three best massage tips for sciatica or nerve pain

The typical symptoms of sciatica are leg pain or tingling, numbness, and weakness. These symptoms start in the lower back and radiate through the buttocks to the large sciatic nerve in the leg.

The usual symptoms are:

  • Pain felt in only one side of the buttocks or one leg (it is rare for both sides to be painful)
  • The greatest pain can be felt while sitting
  • The pain in the leg can be described as biting, tingling, or burning (not a dull pain)
  • Difficulty moving your feet or toes along with a feeling of weakness and numbness

Prevention and relief

The risk of sciatica is significantly reduced by maintaining a healthy weight and exercising. Alternatively, massaging three different parts of the body can help relieve or prevent sciatica. As part of a new method that uses the deep tissue massager, three massage points can be used.

What is the deep tissue massager?

The deep tissue massager is a device that vibrates at a high frequency and low amplitude of movement to stimulate muscles and help them perform more efficiently. Studies have shown that the treatment of the muscles leads to faster regeneration and an overall higher performance. Vibration technology achieves this by increasing blood flow in the target areas.

  1. Upper back
    Position the massage gun on your upper back and move it around the affected area for a maximum of 30 minutes

2. Glutes

Move the massage gun along the entire length of the gluteal muscles at a medium speed for a maximum of 30 seconds

3rd IT band

Position the massage gun along the IT-band muscles and move the device slowly for a maximum of 30 seconds

Success stories of the deep tissue massager in the treatment of athletes and patients

In addition to sciatica or nerve pain, there are various types of muscle pain that can affect you. Studies have shown that after repeated use, deep tissue therapy relieves muscle pain and speeds recovery. Such treatments improve the blood circulation in the painful area, thereby reducing the accumulation of lactic acid and accelerating the repair of micro-injuries in the muscles and connective tissue.

The use of the deep tissue massager helps in treating the upper and lower extremities in the case of musculoskeletal dysfunction. It is recommended to carry out the treatment for a maximum of 15 minutes at a time and to avoid bony areas. Furthermore, a minimum age of 8 years is recommended. In addition, the treatment should not be carried out on open wounds, on the head or on metallic implants.
