Acupuncture for Sciatica

Sciatica is a very common disorder that we treat in our office quite frequently with acupuncture.  This disorder causes pain affecting the back, hip, and outer side of the leg, caused by compression of a spinal nerve root in the lower back. Sciatic is the most common disorder that Acupuncturists are seen for.

Acupuncture can help relieve back pain and sciatica by:

  • Stimulating nerves located in muscles and other tissues, which leads to release of endorphins and changes the processing of pain in the brain and spinal cord.
  • Reducing inflammation.
  • Improving muscle stiffness and joint mobility by increasing local microcirculation, which aids dispersal of swelling.
  • Increasing levels of serotonin and noradrenaline, which can help reduce pain and speed nerve repair.
  • Promoting regeneration of the sciatic nerve.

Acupuncture is a highly effective, relaxing, and painless way to help reprogram your muscles. Acupuncture is also a great way to train the body to heal itself and keep the muscles relaxed.  Marron Wellness Center offers free consultations to anyone interested in finding out more about how acupuncture can help them. If you are interested, please call 732-542-1272 to schedule an appointment.
