The ability to bend over, kneel, and simply move around are all things that we do on the daily. However, if you are experiencing sciatica or piriformis pain you know how difficult and uncomfortable it can be to accomplish these simple tasks. Sciatica is a common condition, characterized by pain along the sciatic nerve which runs down one or both legs from your lower back.
This unique hip brace is designed specifically for reducing sciatica pain through trigger point therapy. The wearable trigger point hip brace includes a tennis ball that massages and adds pressure to your trigger point of pain. By using this wrap, you can still walk and be active while the trigger point ball massages the sore area, relieving pain as you go about your day.
It is well known that if you are pregnant you should expect some lower back pain due to your changing body. However, during your pregnancy, it is possible you may experience sciatica. This can occur if your growing baby and expanding uterus put pressure on your sciatic nerve. It will be easy to tell if it is sciatica if you are experiencing shooting pains that start in your lower back and radiate down your leg or legs.
This pain can be excruciating and it is important to treat it in the safest way possible. We recommend you speak with your doctor to make the best choice for you. This brace is safe to wear while pregnant with special attention paid to the length of time you wear it per day. You should slowly work your way into wearing this hip wrap by starting out with a wear time of about 20 minutes at a time, 2-3 times a day. It will also be helpful if you pair this with stretching or other remedies such as applying a hot or cold compress to the painful area.
Note that this wrap is not a permanent fix, especially if you have experienced past issues with your hips such as sacroiliac joint pain, or edema pressure. If this is the case, it is not likely that this hip brace is right for you. Our compression wrap works to heal those who are experiencing sciatica pain due to a pinched nerve or pressure on a tightened muscle.
The self-treatment with the use of trigger point therapy proves to be extremely helpful, but it is something that can be difficult to work into your daily routine. If you don’t have time or know-how to effectively use the tennis ball massage method to release your sciatica pain, this wrap is perfect for you. You wear the trigger-point therapy within this hip brace, making it ideal for an active lifestyle. If you are in need of compression rather than trigger-point therapy, the ball can always be removed, too!
We know that sciatica pain doesn’t apply to only one size of person. Due to this, our hip compression wrap was designed with easy adjustable application in mind. Made for both men and women, this sciatica hip brace is easy to take on and off and wraps around your body, forming specifically to you.
Wear this hip wrap during movement to activate the massaging effect. The tennis ball within this brace works to relieve muscle tension and soothe your sore muscles due to piriformis, sciatica, or other hip, lower back, and leg pain.
When you wear this wrap-around hip brace, you are actually releasing muscle pain through trigger-point therapy. This non-invasive solution for sciatica pain and piriformis syndrome will relax your muscles, releasing the tension and allowing you to feel like you again!
Understanding the difference between piriformis syndrome and sciatica can get confusing, as the two terms are often used interchangeably. However, these two conditions are actually quite different in terms of causes, symptoms, and treatments. So, in order to ensure you are taking the right measures to treat your condition, it is important to understand the difference between the two.
Let’s break it down. The main difference between piriformis syndrome and sciatica is within their underlying causes. Piriformis syndrome is a medical condition where your sciatic nerve is either compressed or irritated by your piriformis muscle, located in the buttock region. The symptoms of piriformis syndrome will affect your buttock and hip and may travel down your sciatic nerve into your thigh and leg. Other common symptoms associated with piriformis syndrome include tingling sensations and numbness, muscle tenderness, pain and discomfort while engaging in physical activities, and difficulty sitting comfortably.
Sciatica is the most common symptom associated with piriformis syndrome. This type of pain originates in your spine and will radiate down the back of your leg, usually only affecting one side of the body. The sciatic nerve is the longest and largest nerve in the human body, which travels from the lower back into the hip and buttocks, down into the thighs, knees, legs, and feet. It is likely you are experiencing sciatica if you have pain in any of these areas.
