Sciatica

 

[Conception]

sciatica is usually pain present in the buttock, walking becomes very difficult, getting in and out of car is painful; in order to avoid pain walking, any movements and posture seemingly become unnatural.

 

[Pathology]

Sciatica is the result of repeated/prolonged exposure to cold temperatures such as working in freezers and cold environments because, the piriform muscle which is above sciatic nerve presses against it; at first you will feel pain and then not feel pain, the pain will move around from the left side to the right side, pain will not go away and it will get worse over time then, the pain will become fixed to one point in the body and could spread to sacrum bone area and/or lower back that could be exasperated by touching. Sometimes, sciatica could be caused by the lumbar and lower back pain.

Chronic sciatica after acupuncture treatment could manifest pain a few hours to a few days later even if you don't have pain now; this is the body's reaction to the outside stimulation. To say again, the body's piriform muscle when exposed to the same type of environment will contract by habbit.
