*Discounted price for logged-in JCM subscribers only: £87.40

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 2 begins with “Teaching Points”, where both trigger points and motor points are described, and how they are related to acupuncture treatment. Then, three important structures often involved in shoulder pain are presented: (1) The Supraspinatous. This includes the treatment of the muscle belly (SI 12), the tendon and tendon sheath, and the osseous junction at the rotator cuff attachment on the humerus. This includes tendonitis and tendonosis, shoulder impingement syndrome, and bursitis. (2) The Infraspinatous. This includes the treatment of the muscle belly (SI 11) and the muscle-tendon junction, as seen in tendonitis and muscle strain. (3) The Acromial-clavicular joint. Included is the unique treatment called “threading the joint space”, as well as useful adjacent points.

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 shoulder. 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.
