Acupuncture, as a practice, is centered on the philosophy of allowing the body to achieve and maintain the overall well-being of a person, through uninterrupted and the open flow of vital energy or life force via specific pathways located in the body. Using hair-thin needles, that cannot be felt when pierced, when inserted into specific parts of the skin adjacent to the painful areas, this treatment can help a person to recover from various painful conditions. Acupuncture sciatica is a specialty at our acupuncture sciatica Singapore clinic. We make this treatment extremely helpful for our patients, assuring them that it is painless and effective.

How Does Acupuncture Sciatica’s Treatment Works?
As we know, acupuncture is an extremely helpful method of treatment and a physical therapy that can reduce pain. Sciatica pain is often debilitating, making a person inactive and immobile. However, bed rest is still not suggested as mainstay treatment for this condition. In order to manage the sciatica pain, a patient has to find certain activities and positions that are comfortable and helpful. If the symptoms don’t improve, seeing a doctor or physical therapist would be a good option.
For sciatica, fast-recovery acupuncture treatment is often suggested by medical practitioners as well as proponents of alternative medicine and therapy. During this treatment, fine needles will be inserted at particular points on the patient’s skin, also known as the acupuncture points. These points are specifically located along various channels or meridians in the body. The channels are believed to conduct Qi (chee), which is known to be the source of vital force or energy in our body.
Acupuncture follows certain principles and theories, emphasizing on the fact that pain are the result of blockages or imbalances of the natural flow of life force or Qi. Acupuncture, supposedly, will remove all those blockages and restore the overall balance of the body.
One important theory is that whenever these meridians or channels in the body are stimulated, these points will also affect the central nervous system of our body. As a result, it would naturally trigger the mechanism of releasing chemicals that will either work by altering the experience or sensation of pain or may even produce some other changes, which promote an overall sense of good health and well being.
There are several alternative treatments for sciatica. However, traditional Chinese medicine is the only course of treatment that has introduced the doctrine and principles of alternative healing, which really work. Fast-recovery acupuncture treatment carried out in our clinic focuses on effective solutions to release blockages and reprogram the nerves and muscles in such a way, that it is relaxed. As a result, this has always worked to assist the body in healing itself naturally. Acupuncture also improves circulation and relaxes the muscles deeply at the same time.
Once the pain is completely relieved, patients are asked to continue with the number of sessions they have been recommended. At our clinic, we emphasize on stretching after the treatment, which helps in keeping the muscles relaxed and healthier. In addition, it is also one of the best ways to maintain your back.
At our clinic, we aim to help our patients recover from their sciatica pain and get back to their normal life. We function with an experienced team of acupuncturists, who will look in to each and every aspect of your health concern, before proposing the best course of acupuncture treatment for your condition.
