Whitfield Reaves: Orthopedic Acupuncture: Treatment of Common Injuries
This seminar features the use of advanced acupuncture techniques in the treatment of sports injuries, pain and musculoskeletal disorders. Techniques include the tendino-muscle meridians, distal point strategies, empirical points, and trigger point therapy. The diagnosis and assessment of many common sports-related injuries will be covered, including precise instruction on palpation and orthopedic testing. After diagnosis, a systematic four-step approach is used as the “template” for all acupuncture treatment protocols.
The most common injuries seen in clinic will be covered. On Saturday, the shoulder, including rotator cuff injury, as well as several other upper extremity pain syndromes will be discussed. On Sunday, gluteal and hip pain as well as a sampling of other lower extremity injuries will be covered, including plantar fasciitis and achilles tendonitis..
The weekend will emphasize instruction and demonstration. The material presented in this seminar is the integration of traditional Chinese acupuncture with western orthopedic and sports medicine.
This seminar is intended to increase your knowledge and confidence in the diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of common injuries and pain syndromes seen in the clinic! Having spent 30 years specializing in sports acupuncture, Whitfield’s clinical experience is invaluable for practitioners working with pain.
