The Acupuncture Treatment of Orthopedic Disorders
Each day focuses on a specific area, how separate segments relate to each other, as well as identifying discreet anatomical units in order to treat modern-day problems caused by our (generally) sedentary, sitting lifestyle. Purchase one, two or all three days.
Learn how using the ancient practice of meridian acupuncture in conjunction with modern needling techniques like Trigger Points and Motor Points enhances the treatment outcomes for sports medicine and pain patients.
Day 1 will introduce orthopedic concepts and focus on the Upper Extremity, with the treatment of maladies such as DeQuervain's tenosynovitis, Carpal Tunnel, Lateral epicondylitis, medial epicondylitis, biceps tendonitis, and an introduction of the most common shoulder pathologies.
Day 2 will focus on the Lower Extremity, starting with the effective treatment of plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, anterior and posterior tibialis inflammation, knee problems that can be helped with acupuncture such as patellar tendonitis, patello femoral syndrome, ligament strains, and iliotibial band syndrome.
Day 3 will focus on the Head, Neck and Spine. The concept of stretch-weakened musculature and antagonist muscles will be introduced, especially relevant to this area of the body with postural repetitive stress injuries. We will look at tension type headaches originating in the occiput, more shoulder pain, neck and low back pain and other effective ways of treating some of these problems that are the "bread and butter" of many pain-focused acupuncturists' practices.
Each day will be practice intensive with demonstration and supervised needling, and appropriate dress will be useful. A review of anatomy will be helpful before the class begins.
