I appreciate the info! I did needle her this week and preliminary results are mixed. Her back felt pretty good. LE needling points were pretty hypersensitive, especially on the radicular side. I believe i used 8 needles for her initial dose targeting L5, superior cluneal, ITB, and sural n. She said the next day her back felt great but her legs were sore. Only problem with our assessment is she was significantly more active than she was used to the two days prior. I thought she may have been more sore in her legs had we not needled her. I’ll need another round or 2 and may needle higher up the chain as advised to see how she responds. It is sensible to use needling to tap into the process of central inhibition in her case. Thanks all!
