Acupuncture Relieves Sciatic Pain
Sciatica starts in the low back or hip, often traveling down the leg. It is nerve pain, sharp and achy, that interferes with sleep, work, and quality of life. In addition, sciatica is slow to heal, sometimes taking months to get better. Triggers include:
- Lifting heavy furniture
- Weekend warrior basketball or football
- Skiing black diamond trails (lots of moguls)
- Weight lifting
- Tennis, Golf, and Pickleball
- Running or hiking too aggressively
How Acupuncture Works
Sciatica is nerve pain triggered by something pressing on the nerve. It can be a muscle spasm, bulging disc, tendon, or ligament. The impinged nerve causes shooting pain.
Successful sciatica treatment takes the pressure off the nerve by healing the affected muscle spasm, disc, tendon, or ligament. Each treatment is customized to meet the patient’s needs. And the results are excellent. The Raleigh Acupuncture sciatica treatment typically resolves the pain in three to nine treatments. As with all acupuncture treatments, they are relaxing and comfortable.
Acupuncture Tips for Piriformis Syndrome
Here are some valuable tips if you are currently suffering from sciatica. First, don’t try to “stretch it out .”While stretching is helpful for general tightness, it’s counterproductive with an injury like this.
Similarly, you can’t “push through” this injury. You need to rest. Make an appointment as soon as possible. The sooner you start treatment, the quicker you will get better.
Recent Sciatica Case
A 44-year-old man came to our clinic complaining of debilitating hip pain with burning nerve sensations traveling down his left leg. Upon examination, it was clear this was a case of sciatica (a.k.a. Piriformis syndrome). He had been in pain for two months, and it was not getting better.
There are many ways to treat sciatica with acupuncture. We treated our patient locally at the site of the nerve impingement. First, we released his spasming piriformis muscle. By resolving the spasm, the sciatic nerve was finally free from impingement. Next, we needled along the Gall Bladder meridian, reopening the channel down his left leg – these points along the nerve pathway promoted healing, reducing the burning pain.
After the first treatment, his pain decreased by 60 percent. Following his fourth session, he was fully healed. Left untreated, sciatica can persist for months. However, acupuncture typically resolves sciatic pain within three to six sessions.
Sciatica is a painful injury, but with the right approach and care, you’ll be up and running again in no time.

What our Clients are Saying
I’m a semi-professional weight lifter. I never had a problem until my hip went out doing squats. The pain was tremendous, like a sharp nerve pain down the back of my leg into the calf. It had sidelined me for two months while I tried unsuccessfully to work out the pain. Then a buddy suggested acupuncture. He had a similar hip pain and got relief at Raleigh Acupuncture. I went there and got treated. They told me to stop stretching until the injury was healed. I followed their instructions and got half a dozen treatments. The pain started easing after the first few treatments. I continued for another 6 treatments and was totally cured. I was able to get back to lifting with no residual effects of the injury. I’ve recommended this practice to a number of friends since that time and they all have had good experiences.
Ever since my hip replacement I had terrible hip pain that radiated down my leg into my foot. They were talking about redoing the hip, which I didn’t want to do, so I tried acupuncture. The doctors at Raleigh Acupuncture were wonderful. They gave me lots of time and told me what they were doing. They got rid of 90% of my pain. I can live with that!
I’ve been suffering from sciatic pain for years, since I was in a car accident. I tried everything and nothing helped. I couldn’t walk right and had a bad limp. My son made me go to Raleigh Acupuncture (I am afraid of needles!). They told me they would treat me 4 times to see how I responded. Well, I responded great. I had to get 6 treatments to get rid of the pain. Now I walk fine (no limp) and feel all better. Great place!
