Sports Medicine Acupuncture Certification (SMAC) Webinar Program - Module IV: Neck, Shoulder, and Upper Extremity - Course 1

Course Overview

This 2-day anatomy and cadaver webinar is an amazing integration of sports medicine functional anatomy and TCM channel sinews (jingjin) channel theory. Each day of this workshop is divided into distinct morning and afternoon sessions. The morning session consists of didactic presentations on Functional Anatomy and Anatomy of the Sinew Channels that are integrated to focus on the functional relationship between neuromuscular anatomy and the myofascial jingjin tissues and their relationship to the neck, shoulder and upper extremity. This information is followed by the afternoon session that consists of: 1) Assessment, 2) Motor Point Location and Protocols, 3) Cadaver Presentations.

Course Objectives

  • Learn neck, shoulder and upper extremity myofascial pathways that correlate with the classical sinew channels of TCM and the tissues belonging to each sinew channel with their functional anatomy relationship.
  • Learn in theory how to determine which my myofascial sinew channels need to be assessed and treated for musculoskeletal injury.
  • Learn normal and abnormal movement patterns of the neck, shoulder and upper extremity and its relationship to the shoulder girdle.
  • The practitioner will learn nerve pathways, dermatomal distributions and muscle myotomes in relationship to channel topography.
  • The practitioner will learn postural, functional and muscle imbalances that can lead to pain and dysfunction based on TCM theory.
