Mastering the Treatment of Injury and Pain Series - Course 6

Course Overview

Mastering the Treatment of Injury and Pain is a webinar series for the serious practitioner of orthopedic and sports acupuncture. In these courses, Whitfield Reaves describes specific treatment protocols for common injury and pain syndromes. Emphasis is on diagnosis and assessment, including anatomical understanding the numerous types of tissues involved, such as trigger points, motor points, tendons, and ligaments. Course 6 offers more depth on the treatment of “The Triad”, and includes other important anatomical structures of the low back and hip. (1) The Sacral tuberus ligament. This often-overlooked ligament stabilizes the sacrum and is often the cause of buttock pain. (2) The “Core” muscles. With acupuncture, we can treat these key muscles, assisting in proper low back stability. (3) The Trochanteric bursae. Very easy to diagnose, this hip bursae has numerous treatment protocols that are effective. (4) Other considerations. Gluteal tendonitis and strain is often a missed diagnosis with hip pain. Also includes commentary on the ilio-psoas and the hip capsule in both assessment and treatment. (5) Understanding the intervertebral disc. A simple and clear presentation to a complicated subject. The material of this webinar series is the integration of traditional Chinese acupuncture with western orthopedic and sports medicine. We structure these courses in order to increase practitioner confidence in the diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of the low back and hip. This webinar series is designed to be viewed in sequential order. We strongly recommend that the practitioner complete the courses of this series from beginning to end.
