anyone try acupuncture? did it work for you? were the effects long lasting and/or permanent?
due to an accident yrs ago i have Piriformis syndrome. the piriformis muscle tendon and sciatic nerve cross each other behind the hip joint and occansionally the muscle spasms, iritates the nerve and causes intense pain.
most of the time i'm 100% but occasionally it acts up. the last episode triggered new years eve by kinda stumbling on crack in the sidewalk and coughing at the same time. just an odd combo of muscle tensions and whammo i'm on the floor.
i've been to doctors and pyhsio and it did little to nothing.
to me, the problem lies in the piriformis muscle that has a "memory" of a previous injury. if that "memory" could be "erased/reset" i think i'd have no prob. this where i think acupuncture can help. thoughts?
