Back pain and Sciatica can affect anyone at any age and most people will suffer from it at some point in their lives. It is the leading cause of disability.
Robina 7 Day Doctors and Acupuncture recommends this video:
Most lower lumbar pain is caused not by serious damage or disease, but by sprains, muscle strains, minor injuries, or a pinched or irritated nerve.
How acupuncture can help
Research has shown that acupuncture is significantly better than no treatment. It is at least as good as standard medical care for back pain. It appears to be particularly useful as an adjunct to conventional care. Also for patients with more severe symptoms and for those wishing to avoid analgesic drugs.
Acupuncture can help back pain and sciatica by:
providing pain relief – by stimulating nerves located in muscles and other tissues, acupuncture leads to release of endorphins
reducing inflammation – by promoting release of vascular and immunomodulatory factors
improving muscle stiffness and joint mobility
reducing the use of medication for back complaints
improving the outcome when added to conventional treatments such as rehabilitation exercises
promoting regeneration of the sciatic nerve
Acupuncture works on different pathways
The pathways which it uses are myriad, and in any 1 person or medical condition the pathways will be different, so we urge people to try treatment at least 6 times for their condition before evaluating. The outcomes for different conditions and different people makes it impossible to predict how any one person will respond.
