Sciatica

  • What is Sciatica and What Can You Do About It?

    People who suffer from sciatica often complain about the persistent, chronic pain they suffer, and very often drugs do not provide the relief they need.  The presence of sciatica is an indication that the spine is not functioning as it should. But what exactly is sciatica and what can you do about it?

    What is Sciatica?
    Sciatica is chronic pain that affects the lower back and hip. It has its origin in the irritation and inflammation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is extremely long, as it extends from the lower back, hips, buttocks, and down the legs.

    The sharp pain associated with sciatica usually occurs because of a bulging disc.  The discs act as a protective covering to the bones of the spine. However, when these discs that are supposed to cushion the spine move out of position or slip, they can press on and irritate the nerve.

    Sciatica Treatments: Traditional treatments for sciatica include physiotherapy and steroid injections, and extreme cases require the surgical removal of the disc. However, before deciding what to do about sciatica, it is important to meet with your doctor to find out which treatment would be right for you or any other people suffering from sciatica.

    Posture Pump® PentaVec® Model 2500 is a very effective treatment for painful back stiffness. With your lower back gradually lifting with air and expanding into proper posture, use your feet to push up and out with the decompression pedal to gently stretch open and hydrate painful joints, compressed discs and irritated nerves. The PentaVec® rapidly gets to the cause of disc compression and allows you to carefully stretch out painful back stiffness at your own pace.

    Expanding Ellipsoidal Decompression (EED®) gently molds your lower spine into proper posture while nutrient rich fluid is drawn back into the discs as they expand (imbibition). The PentaVec® lifts and expands the lumbar spine while the sacrum and pelvis are rotated up and translated away.  The feeling is one of lightness and freedom from monotonous compressive coiling in the lower discs and joints. The PentaVec® delivers 5 simultaneous force vectors into the lower spine and cannot be manually duplicated.

    Posture Pump® shapes, decompresses, and hydrates compressed discs and joints in the cervical and lumbar spine. This is vital to maintaining good posture and to alleviate the symptoms caused by back conditions and provides relief for the root cause of back pain and stiffness!  Check out more details on our Back Pain Products and Neck Pain Products.

    Over 3 Million and Counting have utilized EED® Technology via Posture Pump®.  Nothing Works Like Posture Pump®.  Nothing!™

  • What is Expanding Ellipsoidal Decompression (EED®) and how does it relieve neck & back pain?

    Neck & back pain is a very common problem among the US population, and has traditionally been treated with the use of drugs. However, there are now therapeutic options like the Posture Pump® Disc Hydrator®, which uses Expanding Ellipsoidal Decompression (EED®) to ease painful stiffness of the neck and back. But what is Expanding Ellipsoidal Decompression, and how does it alleviate neck and back pain?

    Short term neck and back pain very often resolves on its own. However, chronic pain due to conditions such as sciatica, sciata, disc degeneration, compressed discs and herniated discs, usually require intervention. In these cases, Posture Pump® products provide a unique form of decompression therapy known as EED® for relief of neck & back pain.

    What is Expanding Ellipsoidal Decompression (EED®))?

    EED® was invented and patented by Posture Pump®.  Under EED®, high level joint separation is achieved by expansion of elliptical shaped air cells into the curves of the spine (neck & back).  As EED® occurs, bulging disc material is drawn toward the nucleus pulposus and away from the spinal cord and nerves.  This unique action aligns joints in a curved shape while increasing disc height in a ratio corresponding to the disc’s natural wedged shape. Expansion and contraction of these air cells create alternating hydration and milking of the discs.  Longer expansion periods are employed for posture restoration. It is no longer necessary to forcefully pry the head from the body, pull the posterior joints apart and remove the vital curves of the neck and back.  These spinal curves are essential.

    Posture Pump MRI

    Most healthcare professionals are choosing to treat patients with neck & back pain using EED® via Posture Pump®, because it does not forcefully remove the vital natural curves of the spine. This is not the case with conventional linear traction treatment, which tends to remove the essential spinal curves.  In an IRB approved MRI study conducted by Dr. C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., neurosurgeon, researcher and author, he found that Posture Pump® Cervical Disc Hydrator® improved the cervical curve in 72% of subjects whereas the commonly used form of linear traction device had only an 8% cervical curve improvement.  In fact, linear traction actually compromised the cervical curve in 83% of subjects.  Dr. Shealy also found that Posture Pump® increased the average disc height twice as much than with the linear traction device.  You can view this and other research studies here.
