Sciatic pain is no joke. It can feel like a dull ache in your gluteus muscle
and thigh, or it can shoot down the back, outer edge of your leg and often it can cause numbness in your feet. Luckily acupuncture is incredibly helpful to lessen the pain that day but and help get rid of it for good, more quickly.
The Sciatic nerve is one of the biggest nerves in the body and when there is inflammation in the area surrounding it, it tends to get impinged easily. So dis-inflaming the areas is key, there are specific acupuncture point combinations for this on the hands and feet.
Other causative factors can include spinal disc problems, like herniation and rupture, where a disc in the lumbar (lower) spine has moved out of it's cosy house in the bones and is now causing inflammation in the tissues and pinching on that same Sciatic nerve.
Either way- it hurts! So we work on lessening overall inflammation to un-impinge the nerve & benefit the soft tissues & discs.
The sooner we start treating it, the easier it is to combat the long term effects like numbness in the leg because we can use other points and supplements to benefit the nerve health and rebuild it's proper function while maintaining adequate oxygen flow.
