Checking the pain with movements, when she bent forward and backward, and bent to the sides, she felt pain in her right buttock and leg.
After the treatment to harmonize the energy flow of her whole body, I asked her to lie on her left side and checked for the pain with the pressure of fingers. There were a lot of painful points on her right buttock, a few on her left buttock and no painful points on her right thigh and lower leg as shown in Fig. 1 (Red dots and lines are painful spots with finger pressure).
I gave her the treatment to remove all the painful points with pressure and at the end of the treatment, I had her stand up and move her body as she had felt painful before the treatment. She didn’t have pain with any movements so I ended her first treatment.
She came back 4 days later and since she didn’t experience any pain after the last treatment, the course of treatment for her sciatic pain ended.
Chronic pain usually takes time even if the pain is not sharp or just dull, but acute pain usually gets cured by a few treatments even if the pain is intense, so when you have an acute pain, it is worth trying acupuncture.
If you are suffering from pain in low back, buttocks or knees, give a try to Cozy Acupuncture.
