Does sitting hurt? Believe it or not, it’s pretty common for people to have pain when they are sitting. For some it’s riding in a car. For others it can be in a chair. The problem can have a few sources, most pointing to the sit bones, a.k.a. the ischial tuberosity. We’ll take a look at the problem in this article, and find out how acupuncture can provide excellent sit bone pain relief.
A Real Pain In The Behind
Lots of people have pain in this area. Piriformis syndrome, sciatica, gluteous medius spasms all can cause pain and difficulty walking and sitting. Today we are focusing on the sit bones. You’ve got one on each side, and they support you when you sit.
The bones themselves can become bruised. This will cause pain when sitting. The adductor tendons that attach to the bone can become inflamed, causing pain with sitting. And the bursa next to the bone can also become inflamed, causing pain with sitting.
In every one of these situations, acupuncture can provide fast, long lasting sit bone pain relief.
Sit Bone Pain Relief – How It Works
First, acupuncture increases blood circulation to the injured area. Increased blood flow allows for healing. Often times, injuries occur in places with poor blood circulation. That’s why pain continues and does not get better.
Blood circulation promotes healing. It’s like trying to get clean when you don’t have any water. Rub and rub, but the dirt just stays there. But if you get water flowing in the area, you clean up fast. Blood works the same way to heal injuries. Good blood circulation promotes good healing.
Second, acupuncture draws heat away from inflamed tendons and bursae. The fastest way to heal any type of tendinitis or bursitis is with acupuncture, be it for sit bone pain, hip or shoulder bursitis, tennis elbow, or Achilles tendinitis. Again, the process involves increasing blood circulation to the affected area, allowing for deep healing.
Finally, sit bone pain often involves injured muscles that are in spasm. Acupuncture is the single best way to release muscles in spasm. It’s quick, efficient and long lasting.
