Sciatica, which is also known as sciatic nerve pain, is a condition where the root of your sciatic nerve is aggravated.
Your sciatic nerve comes out of the base of your spine and travels all the way down your leg, so a bulging or ruptured disc in your lower spine could be the cause of pain from your buttock to your leg, to your feet.
If you’re suffering with sciatica, you’ll be pleased to learn that Actipatch can be used to ease your pain!
Simply apply your Actipatch to your lower back, the source of all your pain, and keep it in place for up to 720 hours of sciatic pain relief that won’t interfere with your movement or day to day life.

Is ActiPatch similar to a TENS machine?
Unlike a TENS machine, you will not feel heat or vibration with ActiPatch. ActiPatch is completely sensation free. TENS machines are designed to provide pain relief by blocking pain signals, with treatments typically lasting 20-30 minutes. ActiPatch was designed to reduce pain and inflammation and thereby promote healing. Unlike a TENS machine, ActiPatch can be used continuously and for long periods, a lightweight solution that is attached with adhesive or inserted in a wrap/bandage.
How does ActiPatch work?
From the manufacturer:
Chronic pain results from central sensitization, which causes the nervous system to develop a persistent state of high reactivity.
This serves to amplify and maintain the pain even after the initial injury has healed.
Therefore, chronic pain is often poorly correlated to the degree of peripheral tissue injury.
ActiPatch’s electromagnetic signal pulses 1,000 times per second to stimulate neuromodulation of the afferent nerves to dampen the brains perception of pain.
The ActiPatch® pulsed signal rate prevents adaption to allow long-term use.
ActiPatch® therapy extended pain relief improves sleep, physical activity and overall quality of life.
ActiPatch® relieves chronic and acute pain due to muscle and joint soreness, strains and sprains, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and more.
