      Hi Bethany
      I recommend posterior cutaneous needling in the lumbar (homeostatic, segmental, and symptomatic) and sacral (segmental and symptomatic) regions, distal neeedling in the femoral and sciatic nerve distributions (homeostatic), and symptomatic needling wherever indicated by the patient’s presentation.
      I would imagine superficial abdominal needling would be worth exploring, along with superior cluneals, SIJ region.
      If you have taken our Advanced Course, exploring the obturator nerve distribution may be helpful depending on the patient’s symptoms.
      Good luck! Let us know how this works out.
