The pain can radiate to different areas and be worse for sitting or standing. Pain that feels like it goes into the buttocks or sacrum is usually worse for sitting and treatment involves balancing the hips. I find releasing the Glutes works really well for this particular type of Back Pain. Pain which radiates down the hamstring usually also involves the hip flexor muscles and can be worse for standing. All of these types of back pain are treated slightly differently but the pain is usually due to trigger points in the hips and lower back. Acupuncture is fantastically suited to treating back pain, as we can release these sore spots gently and without pain.
