Acupuncture for sciatica pain – how does it help?

Acupuncture therapy helps relieve sciatica pain and keeps it from coming back. Acupuncture for sciatica pain relief works by stimulating the central nervous system, which, in turn, triggers the release of serotonin and other brain chemicals that alter the experience of pain and speed nerve repair. This also aids in reducing inflammation, improving muscle stiffness and joint mobility by increasing the local circulation of the blood in the smallest blood vessels, which also aids in lowering swelling.
