Suffering sciatic pain? acupuncture can help

The sciatic nerve starts from the spin and is the longest single nerve in the body. It runs from the lower back, through the buttock, and down the back of each leg. If this nerve is irritated, it causes pain. This is known as sciatic pain or sciatica.

sciatic pain or Sciatica is an extremely common pain condition and is estimated to affect around 5 percent of men and 4 percent of women in their lifetimes.

The typical sciatica symptoms are constant pain in only one side of the buttock or leg; it can accompany with numbness, tingling, weakness, and the pain radiates into the foot—largely depend on where the nerve is pinched. Pain that is worse when sitting. A sharp pain that may make it difficult to stand up or walk. Sciatic pain can vary from infrequent and irritating to constant and debilitating.

Recent research discovered that neuroinflammation seen in spinal cord, nerve roots of patients with chronic sciatica. A study by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators has found that patients with chronic sciatica -- back pain that shoots down the leg -- have evidence of inflammation in key areas of the nervous system. Average levels of a marker of neuroinflammation were elevated in both the spinal cord and the nerve roots of patients with chronic sciatica. The pain can be relieved by steroid injection for some people. The study showed an association between neuroinflammation and response to anti-inflammatory steroid injections, with levels of neuroinflammation differing between those whose pain was and those whose pain was not relieved by steroid injection treatment.

Acupuncture can release sciatic pain effectively.
