Having the correct diagnostic tools and treatment strategies improves clinical efficacy for any practitioner. Though back pain and sciatica are among the most common conditions for which patients seek TCM treatment, it is all the more important to employ the proper strategies for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment results.

In this course, Dr. David Wells, orthopedic specialist with dual degrees in acupuncture and chiropractic, shares diagnostic methodologies and strategic treatments of conditions of the lower back and hip, including lumbalgia, sciatica, lumbar disc syndrome, lumbar stenosis, lumbar sprain, and trochanteric bursitis. Dr. Wells also covers charting and communications skills to ensure smooth interaction with insurers and other medical-legal professionals.

  • Be able to utilize orthopedic and neurological examinations to arrive at differential diagnoses for back pain.
  • Know the incidence and mechanism of onset of sciatica and other related low back conditions.
