Acupuncture For Releiving Painful Sciatica

What Is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a condition that affects the nerves in the lower back. It can be painful and make it difficult to move your legs or bend over. Acupuncture can help relieve sciatica by stimulating nerves in the spine, which helps alleviate pain. Sciatica may cause sharp pain in the lower back and outer thigh that gets worse when you move or stretch your leg. It’s important to treat sciatica because it can make daily activities difficult and limit your ability to walk after long periods of sitting or standing. 

How Does Acupuncture Help My Sciatica?

Sciatica can be a symptom of underlying conditions such as pregnancy , rheumatic fever , or inflammation of the spine and muscles. Sciatica may cause sharp pain in the lower back and outer thigh that gets worse when you move or stretch your leg. It’s important to treat sciatica because it can make daily activities difficult and limit your ability to walk after long periods of sitting or standing. Acupuncture works by stimulating nerves in muscles called myelinated c fibrs. These nerves carry messages back to the brain and locally to inhibit pain and increase blood flow. Acupuncture works by sending these small electrical currents through these nerves, which can help relieve pain and improve your overall health.
