What is better for sciatica acupuncture or chiropractor?
Being an acupuncturist might make me a little bit biased to say that acupuncture is better than chiropractic, however when it is not clear what is the cause of sciatica, I would avoid any form of manipulation and choose the safest therapy.

Dizziness after acupuncture
There are many factors that could cause dizziness after acupuncture: poor nutrition, poor health, poor lifestyle, and diabetes type 1 and type 2. Facing down on the treatment table increases the sinus pressure and possibly causes a temporary unbalance at the level of the ears could cause an increase in dizziness. Certain patients need to be treated in a sitting position to eliminate such undesirable side effects or the practitioner needs to decrease the duration of the therapy. Short treatment will always prevent such side effects on very sensitive patients. Some patients don't eat all day so I always recommend eating a snack before therapy so the blood sugar is normal.
