Sciatic pain and lower back pain treatment at Centre of Balance Hamilton

Acupuncture, Acupressure, Chinese massage use for lower back pain and sciatica

By Szenan Phua

In my practice, most lower back pain and sciatica are pretty easy to fix, just about all of them get the result straight away. In about 1% of cases,  lower back pain and sciatica can be very difficult to deal with, the difficult one often involve with stress fracture (emotional issue).

Treating lower back pain and sciatica has become my daily life, my treatment include acupuncture and OP acupressure technique. I expect to see good result ( this is my goal) in the first visit of treatment for lower back pain and sciatica. The results is defined as a reduction in lower back pain or sciatic pain or increase in mobility of lower back and legs, such as lifting leg up, bending forwards and backwards.

If my treatment doesn’t produce the expected result or the pain returns for unexplained reasons, it is important that the patient refer for more scientific testing such as x-ray, MRI or CAT scan to rule out anything other than just a muscle imbalance problem.

A X-ray, MRI or CAT scan might find out more about the cause of lower back and sciatica. My treatment plan may change according to the report of X-ray, MRI or CAT scan.

A study has done by Scott D. Boden at the George Washington Hospital Medical Centre in 1990. This study showed there are people walking around with age related degeneration of the disc or disc bulges and even herniations according to MRI and CAT scans, but they have never suffered from any back pain. This is the reason why i always tell my patient do not just believe what you see from your eyes(X-ray or MRI or CAT scan result), you may get pain free with full mobility, but X-ray, MRI or CAT scan may still show the bad result, such as disc bulges or herniations.

I often find the cause of lower back pain and sciatica comes from another area, away from where the pain area. It can be from the muscles tight or spasm in the neck, upper back, buttock, thigh or calf. Once Chinese massage or trigger point therapy apply on those tight muscles away from pain area, those muscles will become relax and softer, lower back pain and sciatica went away as soon as those muscles are being relax. I always guarantee the results for all who suffer from sciatica and back pain in the first visit. Our guarantee is here if you don't see any results* of your sciatica treatment and back pain treatment with our acupuncture and unique acu-point technique in your first visit, we will give your money back, this is how confident we are. 

I often use acupressure points on the opposite of the pain area before Chinese massage and acupuncture treatment, patient often feels pain relieve within 1 or 2 minutes or even pain free, as well as warm sensation around the pain area ( this is Qi and Blood circulate to the blockage meridian according to Chinese medicine theory ). I always hear patients say “ How amazing” or “How bizzare, you just took away the pain like that!” after i apply this instant pain relieve technic. Actually this is just a start of the treatment, Chinese massage or trigger point therapy will sort out the tight muscles on the body, and acupuncture will increase or move Qi and Blood to balance muscles and also help with other issue such as stress fracture or Kidney deficiency(one of the common cause of lower back pain and sciatica).

Most practitioner and specialists only focus the pain area, forgot to look at the big picture of human body. These experts apply the same “look where it hurts” philosophy to most pain, of course their treatment will only apply on where it hurts, which is why people continue to suffer lower back pain and sciatica unnecessarily for months and moths or even years and years, until they become so doped up on pain killers with can’t getting any more progress, then they agree to have an operation or give up searching for a natural solution.

I hope people who suffer lower back pain and sciatica keep searching a natural solution to fix the problem. I have to tell you that “give up pain killers, you would die because of pain, but you will die with the Liver damage or Kidney damage cause by pain killers”. I believe there is a way to fix the pain out there, the way that your GP properly don’t know yet.
