Course Overview
Tennis elbow, or epicondylitis, presents with pain in the elbow at the lateral epicondyle and distally along the extensor tendon and muscles of the forearm. Usually a repetitive stress injury, it is characterized by inflammation and irritation of the forearm extensors and possibly the supinators. This is a typical sports injury, with the site of trauma occurring frequently on a yang surface (the extensors). It is much more common than medial epicondylitis, on the flexor muscle group of the yin surface. Like many overuse injuries, its onset is insidious. There is often no specific traumatic event associated with the start of symptoms. However, the patient is predictably involved in recreational activities that require repetitive and vigorous use of the forearm muscles ? like tennis and other racquet sports. Occupational stresses, such as construction work, also result in the injury. Similarly, the effects of computer keyboarding and utilizing a mouse, can also act as a stress to the extensor group. The Large Intestine and San Jiao meridians encompass the region of the extensor muscles. However, neither of these two channels precisely encompass the lateral epicondyle. Hence, distal points may be difficult to determine, and the practitioner will need some "trick" techniques to treat this condition. As Whitfield Reaves will discuss in the webinar, the complexity of the anatomical structure of the common extensor tendon makes even local and adjacent needling more difficult than what some practitioners may want to admit.
Objective
  • To perform two orthopedic tests that assist in the diagnosis of the condition.
  • To use palpation in order to diagnose the condition.
  • To know two non-local treatments that may be used in the treatment of the condition.
  • To be able to describe needle technique on the local zone of the epicondyle.
  • To be able to describe needle technique on the local zone of the extensor tendon.

    What People Are Saying

    This was a very relevant course that I will use a lot in my practice.

    Katherine W.- United States

    Fantastic; Whitfield has a wealth of knowledge to share on the topic of sports acupuncture.

    Kingsley A.- Australia

    This short webinar is filled with clinically relevant, useful information. Whit's teaching style is refreshing. Even though these webinars are pre-recorded and without a live audience, I always feel like Whit is speaking directly to me rather than reading off his notes. The quizzes are also very approachable. I am looking forward to more webinars with Whit.

    Corrine W.- Canada

    I really appreciate Mr. Reaves' teachings that are clear, concise and are a methodological approach to explaining syndromes and treatments and relating modern pathologies with more modern approaches and how it relates to more traditional treatments.

    Christine O.- Canada

    I love Whitfields system of orthopedics. Its clear, direct, and gets results.

    Wendy B.- United States

    I've taken eleven of Whitfield Reeves webinars, and I've never been disappointed. The information is clearly delivered and based on his actual clinical experience, not theories of what should work. Every class has given me information that's immediately applicable to my acupuncture practice. Thank you!
