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 8 covers: (1) The Anterior knee. Most commonly called patello-femoral joint dysfunction, this type of anterior knee pain has simple treatment, yet it must be precise. Needling to the sub-patellar region is key. (2) The Medial knee. The medial compartment of the knee can be both acute and chronic. Targets include the joint space and the ligament. “Threading the joint space” may be an effective treatment. (3) The Pes anserine. Lacking in the modern Chinese texts, this condition needs proper assessment. Treatment is then relatively simple, with the tendons and bursae of the pes accessible in the region of Spleen 9. (4) Shin splints. The anterior compartment presents with clear treatment strategies, while the medial compartment oftentimes is more complicated. Proper depth of needle is essential.

The material of this webinar series is the integration of traditional Chinese acupuncture with western orthopedic and sports medicine. We structure these courses to increase practitioner confidence in the diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of the lower extremity. 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.
