How can Acupuncture in North Portland help with sciatica?

Acupuncture increases circulation to damaged tissues and allows the body to heal naturally without drugs and surgery.

When that sciatic nerve is irritated or damaged, your body will send inflammation to the damaged area and swelling will occur, this is known as inflammation around the sciatic nerve.

Acupuncture is able to wake up the nervous system and increase the healing potential to the sciatic nerve.

When Acupuncture is combined with chiropractic, the benefits are compounded to get optimal results. Chiropractic helps mobilize fixated joints and allows nerves to relax with more motion.
