Chinese Abstract

下背痛僅是一個症狀,治療前必需要有確實的鑑別診斷,特別是必須先排除嚴重的疾病(紅旗),和因為心理社會因素導致疼痛遷延化(黃旗)的可能。下背肌筋膜疼痛症的治療方式有很多,如藥物,物理治療,姿勢調整和衛教,以及運動治療等,多學科的復健治療(multidisciplinary rehabilitation approach)和成人肌筋膜疼痛的評估及治療流程,可供臨床醫師做參考。針刺治療,則是上述的傳統保守治療效果不佳的另一種選擇。針刺治療的種類很多,包括肌激痛點注射,乾針治療,針灸,浮針治療等,但這些都只是執行治療的工具,最重要的還是要找到可能引起症狀的患肌,給予適當的治療,同時,治療後的自我牽拉運動和核心肌群的肌力訓練,更是預防下背痛再復發的不二法門。
