Sciatica and nerve pain under control I have been suffering from acute sciatica in my right leg for the past year or so. Sometimes the pain has been unbearable. The doctors could not give me a definitive answer on what the condition was (lower back pain? aggravated disk? sciatica?) and most importantly – why it was happening. All they would prescribe to me was pain-killers and a trip to the physio. A friend recommended that I try these new Deta-Elis devices which I subsequently did and I got almost immediate relief from them. I have gone from a pain level of 10 to almost zero in six weeks! Without medication! And furthermore, I am using programmes on the devices to repair the damage that my discs have suffered over the years. I would recommend these devices for back pain and sciatica to anyone!
