Treat Your Own Sciatica & Hip Pain

The Coaching The Body™ Approach

Learn How to Eliminate Your Own Sciatica Pain Without Seeing a Therapist!

You’ve struggled with sciatic pain for a while – we understand. We teach therapists how to relieve sciatic pain using our Coaching The Body™ method, and we're approached by hundreds of people a year for help with their own pain.  

Treating pain isn't very difficult once you understand where it comes from. Unfortunately, the medical system and nearly all alternative practitioners are uninformed about the true origins of pain. Using our system, you can take control of your own sciatic pain.

Hi - I'm Chuck Duff, Founder of Coaching The Body Institute.

Oddly enough, pain is a mystery to the medical profession. Our medical system is still in the middle ages in terms of understanding pain, which is why we have over 65,000 people a year dying of opiate overdose in the US.

Sadly, a high percentage of addicts begin with a prescribed opiate, and much of it is unnecessary. Pain is assumed by the medical establishment to always be a product of injury or disease, but this is just plain wrong.

I’m a trigger point therapist, and it has been demonstrated in repeated studies as well as my own 15 years of clinical experience that the vast majority of pain is from muscles that have developed trigger points.

I have great success in my work, but not everyone has access to one of my trained Coaching The Body therapists.

That’s why I decided to develop an online self-care course that will teach you how to take care of your own sciatic pain.

Trigger Points: Extremely Common and Easily Addressed

Trigger points, which are actually responsible for most pain, are small areas of stagnation in muscle tissue that develop in response to chronic or acute stresses on muscles.

They aren’t injuries, but they commonly send pain to other areas (pain referral) in a way that can feel very much like an injury. This fools everyone – doctors, PTs, most practitioners.

While the pain can be severe, trigger points are fairly easy to correct. And much of it can be done as part of a self-care approach. The techniques aren't difficult – what's important is knowing what muscles to treat and in what order.

Example: "Trochanteric Bursitis

If  you go to the doctor with localized pain on the side of your hip, the doctor is very likely to tell you that you have "trochanteric bursitis." Meaning that a sac over a bone in your hip became inflamed for some unknown reason. Somehow, your body just broke.

It seems obvious and tempting to blame the problem on the structures and "injuries" near the site of the pain – however, this is almost never the true cause. And it's really a guess—the doctor isn't going to cut your hip open to see if the bursa is actually inflamed (and that is a good thing).

Trochanteric bursitis is what Travell and Simons call a "garbage diagnosis." Medical people don't generally know that this type of pain is generally referred pain from a muscle, so by default they assume disease or injury at the site of the pain.

As CTB therapists, we know that the tensor fascia latae (TFL) muscle refers pain exactly to that area, and is generally what causes this pain. It's an important little muscle, that often gets overloaded.

In the Treat Your Own Sciatic Pain course, we show you how to thoroughly treat the TFL, along with many other muscles that cause pain in this area.

Like most muscles, the actual treatment isn't difficult. But you do need to understand the neurological "tricks" that will allow the muscle to give up its holding pattern.

Perpetuating Factors and Self Assessments: The Key to Pain-Free!

Treating the muscles causing pain will ameliorate it, in the short term.  But why are there muscular problems in the first place?  Muscles just don't "break" or "go bad".  The factors that are chronically stressing the muscles must be identified and corrected to obtain lasting relief.

After resolving hundreds of sciatica and hip pain problems in our clinic, we have identified the perpetuating factors that commonly setup sciatica and hip pain:  effective leg length difference and foot hyperpronation.  And we have refined, over many years, our assessment methods and corrective measures.

In addition to learning how to identify dysfunctional muscles and the CTB methods to treat them, you will learn how to assess yourself for these perpetuating factors and the corrective measures that will provide long-term relief from pain.  These simple corrections are the key to remaining pain-free!

Treat Your Own Sciatic Pain: The Coaching The Body Approach (eCourse)

This online course incorporates our decades of clinical experience in treating sciatica and hip pain using my Coaching The Body™ method. We have great success with sciatic pain, because we understand how to trace pain to its source.  And the source is almost always trigger points in muscles, not nerve impingement as most medical people believe. 

What we’ve done is distill out the most important muscles and the best sequence to treat them in, and we guide you with videos and written material to maximize your success in treating your own muscles.

The treatment demonstrations are efficient "bite sizes" so you can easily digest the information and put it to use immediately.

What You Get In This Online Course

Meet Your Instructors

Your self care program has been designed by two respected teachers with many years of clinical experience helping clients with pain. They offer these same techniques to their clients – and now you can benefit from their success.

Chuck Duff

Chuck left a lucrative (but soul-sucking) career in software development to pursue training in traditional Thai massage. He opened his first clinic, Thai Bodywork, in 2001, and quickly became frustrated with the lack of understanding in traditional methods for deep, long-term pain relief.

During his decades-long quest to understand the true nature of pain, he rediscovered the forgotten nuances of trigger point therapy, and realized he could integrate it with his training in Thai techniques. He developed Coaching The Body™ through years of research and clinical study, and has been teaching it since 2005.

Chuck's in-person and online teaching has now achieved international recognition as one of the most sophisticated and successful approaches in the world for treatment of pain and dysfunction.

Doug Ringwald

Doug was a yoga instructor (and a musician, and a graphic designer, and a soccer player) with chronic back pain. As long as he was practicing yoga, he wasn’t in pain.

But he found himself unable to help his students with their chronic and severe pain. He felt frustrated by his lack of knowledge in functional anatomy and kinesiology.

Doug explored a myriad of learning opportunities—but after a life-changing experience with Thai Bodywork, he decided to enroll in Chuck Duff’s Level I training program. And we still can’t get rid of him. 🙂

Three years later, Doug quit his job in digital publishing to become a full-time therapist and teacher. He’s been teaching alongside Chuck since 2014, and he sees clients at his Aurora, Colorado clinic in addition to his training and curriculum development at CTBI.
