Overview

A Sports Medicine Acupuncturist's guide to self-treating low back pain and sciatic pain based on clinical experience and knowledge of referred pain patterns caused by trigger points.
Statistics show that 80% of us will eventually have back pain. Practitioners who recognize the musculoskeletal causes of back pain and sciatica believe that most back pain sufferers have muscle shortening and myofascial trigger points in their muscles which refer pain in specific patterns.

One of the most common back pain patterns is from the gluteus medius muscle. That pattern is felt in a band just above the belt line and sometimes into the sacrum. The pain is felt at the muscle attachment in the low back area but the cause of the pain has to be treated in the gluteus medius muscle. And it can be treated fast!

Another common cause of low back pain is felt in the middle of the back and is experienced after sitting for long periods of time just when the person stands up. That back pain improves after the person walks around a while and warms up the muscle. This is from tight hip flexors - the psoas.

Too many people are suffering from low back pain and sciatica that is of muscular origin and that can in fact be treated when the source of the pain can be located.

The mystery of low back pain is no mystery!

It's just a little complicated.

Once referred pain patterns are better understood by our medical professionals, people with myofascial trigger points that are causing their back pain will have faster recovery because they will know which muscles need attention.

It is the author's sincere hope that this book will be found by many back pain and sciatica sufferers and that they will read it and use it to get the relief they are seeking.

Meet the Author

After my own experience of chronic pain and going to different doctors expecting a different result, I took someone’s suggestion and sought out an acupuncturist. I got the pain relief I was seeking and so many other health benefits. I knew I needed to learn more.

I enrolled at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine’s Orthopedic & Sports Medicine program where I learned about motor points and trigger points and how they can be used to quickly release tight muscles. I learned how to assess muscle imbalances and treat them with acupuncture. After seeing instant results from motor point acupuncture, there was no turning back for me. I became very passionate about using this technique to help as many people as I can and getting the word out that motor point acupuncture is a powerful tool when combined with traditional Chinese acupuncture.
