Acupuncture treatment for Sciatica/Backache

Acupuncture treatment for Sciatica/Backache

End Sciatica/Backache with acupuncture

Back pain can affect any area of the back and is often due to an accident, sprain, a sports injury, poor posture and demands of modern life.  Some of us are more prone to Sciatica/backache on a regular basis. Both acute and chronic back pain responds well to acupuncture, & cupping. Both help muscles to relax thus easing any spasm, inflammation, or stiffness so that the pain can be fixed. Back and neck pain due to whiplash is treated very effectively with acupuncture. Whiplash can be treated immediately after an accident even if there is still inflammation and referred pain. Dave Shipsey uses a wide range of methods such as abdominal, Dr. Tan, Distal or Master Tung’s acupuncture to ensure you get the best results possible.

Stop Sciatica/Backache

Sciatica is caused by pressure being put on the sciatic nerve due to inflammation or damage to the lower vertebrae. This can result in debilitating pain running down either or both legs as far as the toes. Sciatica also responds very well to acupuncture and particularly abdominal acupuncture and you should feel some benefit after the first session. Sciatica usually takes 5-8 sessions to clear as it can be persistent and difficult to cure. You should rest and avoid things that aggravate your condition as much as possible.

With painful conditions such as sciatica, other pain management techniques such as wrist/ankle or ear embedded needles can give huge relief.

I arrived at Dave’s door one afternoon, on foot of a recommendation, almost bent over double and barely able to walk after hurting my lower back playing tennis that morning. After just one session, I was able to stand up straight and walk almost freely again.
