By Whitfield Reaves

This webinar will help you understand the anatomical tissues involved in treating joint pain and dysfunction. And it offers a path for point selection and needle protocols which increase the precision that is essential for clinical effectiveness.

Course Overview

In this course, Whitfield Reaves discusses five common types of needle and point combinations used for treating joint pain and dysfunction. Whitfield has been teaching for over 30 years, and is known for his depth of knowledge and yet simplicity of treatment. And these treatments work in the clinic. Just take note of the reviews for this and other courses! The presentation emphasizes the use the local and adjacent tissues to reduce pain and enhance joint mobility. Understanding the anatomical significance of these structures offers a path for increasing needle precision and enhancing clinical effectiveness. Whitfield will discuss the following five general protocols that can be easily integrated into clinical practice. 1. Threading the needle along the joint space Example: The acromial-clavicular joint Transverse needling between LI 16 and LI 15 at the AC joint line 2. Direct puncture into the synovial joint capsule Example: The talar sinus of the ankle joint Perpendicular insertion at GB 40, with deep penetration 3. Puncture the muscles that cross the joint Example: The hip joint Needling in the region of the extraordinary point Jiankua and GB 29 in the gluteus medius 4. Puncture the local ligaments Example: The SI Joint Lateral oblique needling in the region of Bl 27 and Bl 28 5. Puncture points adjacent to the joint Example: The shoulder joint Needling adjacent points SI 9, SI 10, and Jianqian We feel that all practitioners will learn a trick or two in this course!
