Classical Five Element Acupuncture to treat Sciatica and Sciatic Pain.


The National Institute of Health (NIH) defines sciatica as pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling in the leg caused by injury to or pressure on the sciatic nerve. Sciatica is a symptom of another medical problem, not a medical condition on its own. Typical causes of Sciatica include- compressed or herniated disk, tumors, a pelvic injury, spinal stenosis, pregnancy or piriformis syndrome.

The Sciatic nerve starts in the lower spine and runs down the back of each leg. Sciatic pain can be quite varied but it commonly feels like a tingling, a dull ache or a burning sensation. It commonly occurs on only one side of the body and can be felt along an invisible line that spans from the lower back all the way down to the sole of the foot.

The sciatic pain can be mild to severe. Unfortunately, it can become so debilitating that a person is unable to sit for even the shortest amount of time. Sciatic pain can lead to a diminished enjoyment of life such as the inability to take even a short trip.

Sciatica is typically treated with pain medications and in some cases surgery.

Sciatica sufferers now have some hope. Classical Five Element Acupuncture treatments can provide sciatic pain relief and in some cases completely resolve the pain. Thus helping Sciatic pain sufferers to regain the ability to travel and sit for long periods of time and in some cases complete resolution of their pain.

You owe it to yourself to give Acupuncture a try before submitting to a life of pain medication or undergoing possibly risky surgery.
