Abstract

This is the sixth and final communication in a series describing acupuncture points by anatomic nomenclature. Most acupuncture points on the lateral and posterior surfaces of the lower limb are located along routes of the sacral plexus. These points belong to acupuncture meridians carrying "Yang energy" in the lower limbs. The meridians are traditionally known as the Urinary Bladder on the posterior surface of the lower limb, Gall Bladder on the lateral surface of the lower limb, and Stomach on the anterior surface of the leg and dorsum of the foot.
