Course Overview

Lateral Knee Pain: Ilio-Tibial Band Syndrome.

Ilio-tibial band syndrome is the most common cause of lateral knee pain and involves pain in the lateral knee and thigh. It is a sports injury that every acupuncturist should become proficient in treating, as it is common, and responds well to acupuncture treatment.

Tight ilio-tibial bands can be seen in the non-athletic population, and they respond well to the techniques discussed in this webinar. The injury is at the level of the muscles and tendons, with qi and blood stagnation in the channels and collaterals. This case is clearly Gall Bladder meridian pathology. Sometimes the diagnosis of wind (feng) may be used for the “popping” and “snapping” pain at the lateral knee. Local points including Gall Bladder 34, Gall Bladder 33, and Gall Bladder 31 often work well, especially when combined with distal points.

However, treatment of the gluteus medius muscle is essential. This may be one of the most effective and reliable treatment protocols, according to the clinical experience of webinar instructor Whitfield Reaves. The location of the extraordinary point Jiankua will be described, which the practitioner will find extremely useful in this condition, as well as other hip and gluteal conditions.
