Discussion: Sciatica & acupuncture
in: Soupbone; Soupbone > 2012-05-22;
am curious to hear what you think of acupuncture when treatment is finished. I tried it for hamstring insertion inflammation (simultaneous w/ PT) & did not feel it helped.
It's seems ok for the temp, but the guy did a fantastic job with a 5 minute massage that really hit my sciatic nerve point that has been awesome for 3 days now. I will run today and see how it holds up through that. this will be key, but I will try to see this guy again.
Great to hear! Hope he gives you some reason to think twice about that operation.
For the sciatica, have you tried stretching? Specifically the stretch I outlined in Janet's log, and then she found a good video of it. That stretch cured my problem in the butt and leg. I also did a piriformis, ham string and quad stretch. Couple times a day and my issues gradually resolved.
Now to find something for the shoulder.
