No acceptable scientific explanation has yet been found to account for the success of such remote treatments as acupuncture and connective tissue massage which do not conform to the recognized distribution of segmental reference. This paper is the result of clinical observations over the past seven years, revealing previously unsuspected effects from applying various treatments to the area of the sympathetic dorso-lumbar outflow for a wide variety of painful conditions. An hypothesis is offered which may account for those remote effects hitherto poorly understood. © 1986, Australian Physiotherapy Association. All rights reserved.
