Acupuncture For Sciatica

Acupuncture can be very effective for sciatica.  Sciatic can be caused by tight muscles in the lower back or hip pressing on nerves.  The nerves can get inflamed over time from being irritated.  Once the nerves are inflamed, you need to address the inflammation with herbs and supplements as well as the acupuncture.

Lower back acupuncture points are used as well as a major point in the hip, called Gall Bladder 30.

  GB 30 is Gall bladder 30.

Here is another picture from the back side:

I do not just treat Gall Bladder 30.  When you have pain, there is never just one fixed area of muscle spasm.  You need to treat a wide area because if you do not, a muscle spasm can still affect the nerve in another area and caused referred pain.
