Sciatica can be such a pain in the butt. And lower back, hips, legs, feet, even toes!  According to the Southern Cross, over 40% of kiwis will suffer from it at some time. 

With sciatic pain sleeping, sitting, walking, bending, turning or standing maybe difficult. You may have pain down the back of the thigh, butt, lower leg, ankle and toes. You may have burning, numbness, pins-and-needles in one or both legs.  Exercise and stretching is great to manage it, but acupuncture can also hugely help – especially when you are in a lot of pain with it.  Studies show acupuncture is as effective, if not more so, than morphine (and doesn’t have the side effects) so I can help get you out of pain fast.  It also helps address the issues that are causing the sciatica to begin with.   You don’t have to suffer with sciatica. Get in touch and find out how acupuncture can help you move on with life pain free.
