TENS Pad Placement for Sciatica

Sciatica is a term that describes lower back pain caused by sciatic nerve issues. As a reminder, the sciatic nerve is a large nerve that runs from the lower back down the leg. Because of its placement at the base of the spine, this nerve can become pinched and compressed very easily. This pressure can result from a herniated disc, a bone spur or even spinal stenosis. These conditions create compression on the nerve and can lead to pain, inflammation and numbness down the leg. Luckily, it is possible to find relief with TENS therapy. Read on to learn about TENS pad placement for sciatica.

Large Gel Body Pads: These larger pads are also long-lasting and highly conductive. They are perfect for targeting broader areas of pain such as the legs, the arms and the shoulders.

Important Notes for Pad Placement

  • First off, always place pads on clean, dry, healthy skin
  • Place pads near or surrounding the painful area, at least 1 inch apart
  • Make sure there is a linear path between the two pads
  • Do not let the pads touch
  • Finally, wet the pads with a little bit of water before placing them on the skin
