Course Overview
Treating low back pain is often a complex and complicated undertaking. There are frequently roadblocks to success, relief may be limited, and sometimes improvement is temporary. Part 1 was based upon the all important "triad" structures – the gluteus medius, the quadratus lumborum, and the SI joint. This three-hour webinar is Part 2 of this series, and offers acupuncture perspectives on important but elusive pain generators. This more anatomically based approach takes a significant turn from what traditional Chinese medicine often postulates.

No longer can we automatically assume that low back pain is due to kidney deficiency and caused by obstructions in the Bladder channel. Whitfield's 40+ years of clinical experience has led to protocols that can assist the practitioner in achieving enhanced results.

This online course will present diagnosis, assessment and treatment protocols for back pain, and will include the following structures:
1. The trochanteric bursae
2. The gluteal tendon
3. The sacral-tuberus ligament
4. The hip joint
5. The wrap-around "core" muscles

Additionally, Whitfield will give us a short review of the triad – the gluteus medius, the quadratus lumborum, and the often overlooked sacral-iliac joint.

The pain generators in this Part 2 online webinar can be included in all treatments of the low back and hip. Add these points to the triad structures, or the foundation treatments that you already may be using, regardless of your background and style.
  • Learn how to locate and the points involved with the trochanteric bursae.
