Now in its third edition, this popular text covers the acupuncture treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. Its aim is to enable the acupuncture practitioner to diagnose these disorders from both a Chinese medicine and an anatomical perspective and to combine these insights into an effective treatment.

This new edition is a comprehensive revision. It contains a substantial amount of new material, an increased emphasis on diagnosis and updated treatment recommendations. It is presented in a striking new format that enhances ease of use. The first section covers TCM physiology, pathology and etiology of musculoskeletal disorders, with TCM diagnosis and treatment modalities and point selections, and includes an exposition of the jingjin, the muscle meridians in Chinese medicine.

The second section surveys the pathoanatomical framework of the tissues, the muscles, and the skeletal system and their specific disorders and treatment. The third section, the major part of the book, is a regional survey with illustrations of all the articular areas. Each is explained from both Western and TCM viewpoints. The relevant acupuncture points are also discussed. The method of examination of the area, and its disorders and their treatment, are described in detail. The author has been a practicing osteopath and acupuncturist for more than thirty years, specializing in the treatment of painful musculoskeletal disorders. He has taught widely for most of that time.
