Is your sciatic nerve making you suffer?

You feel muscle tension in the buttocks and thighs, sometimes even painful irradiation that looks like an electric shock going down and through your leg. It is quite possible that the cause of the problem is that your sciatic nerve is irritated. The contracted gluteal muscles “jam” the sciatic nerve and create intense pain that prevents you from functioning optimally and interferes with your daily activities.The causes of muscle tension can be from prolonged sitting or physical activity that strains the muscles of the buttocks or lower back. Stretching can actually help relieve accumulated tension and decrease pain. On the other hand, it is difficult to completely eliminate discomfort only with stretching since the tense muscles often causing the pain (such as the piriformis muscle) are deep and more difficult to relax completely with stretching.

  • I regularly treat patients who see me for pain in the buttocks with irradiation in the thigh.
  • The effectiveness of acupuncture in such cases is surprising! I love treating this type of pain because the improvements are often felt by patients very quickly.

Your health

  • It is possible to help you even in those cases where the pain has been present for a long time and you have been chronically in pain for months.
  • Take the time to take care of yourself and consult an acupuncturist. As a healthcare professional I have extensive knowledge of musculoskeletal issues.
  • Your general quality of life is therefore also improved when you consult an acupuncturist since we treat our patients with a global view of the human body.
