Treating sciatica is straightforward but can take several treatments. My method for treating sciatica is to use acupuncture needles in the low back area (almost always involved in sciatica) as well as along the path of the pain, usually in through the glute and down the side or back of the leg or sometimes down the front of the leg. I then will use cupping in the area of low back involved and usually either cupping or massage down the path to relieve the muscle pain. Chinese herbs are given (sometimes) in order to promote healing in the low back or other area that has been damaged causing the sciatica. We currently have a pain special that can be used for sciatica or any other type of pain. Click here for details on the pain special.
