About Sciatica

Treatment with Traditional Chinese Medicine

Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Typically, sciatica affects only one side of your body.

Alan Chen says there are 2 major reasons people get Sciatica:

1. The patient is always sitting, working, the whole day from a chair — basically a “couch potato.” The body’s full weight pressing on the leg for long periods causes circulation and inflammation conditions.

2. The patient picked up the inflammation when the cold weather seeped into the muscle.

This condition takes some time to correct. Alan Chen would use cream and herbal medicines to help patients relieve the pain, and help improve circulation. It is important to determine which cause triggered the problem! The key is not to merely treat it, the key is to understand it, and to not let the same condition(s) ever repeat again.
