Course Overview
Trochanteric bursitis presents as pain and stiffness in the hip and lateral thigh which may radiate down the ilio-tibial band. It is often a repetitive stress injury characterized by inflammation of the trochanteric bursa of the hip. Sometimes, it may occur from acute trauma. Hip bursitis usually involves the gluteal muscles and the ilio-tibial band.

Treatment of the hip bursae, as shown in this webinar, skillfully combines local and adjacent points. Locally, there are various techniques to treat the bursae itself. And the adjacent muscles, including the gluteus medius, alert the practitioner to vitally important tissues where no traditional acupuncture points are located. Whitfield Reaves teaches that treatment of trochanteric bursitis is one of the very highly effective injuries, as it responds quite well to the techniques of acupuncture sports medicine. He will include instruction on the extraordinary point Jiankua, an extremely useful point in hip and gluteal conditions.

This series was introduced in 2011, and is based upon single individual sports injuries. Each course provides simple and direct video for first time viewing as well as to increase precision through repetition. Even if you have taken the newer series, Mastering the Treatment of Injury and Pain, this old series is still an excellent resource for review and is filled with clinical gems.
  • To use palpation in order to diagnose the presence of inflammation of the trochanteric bursae.
  • To name one acupuncture point and one extraordinary point located locally or adjacent, in the gluteus medius muscle.
  • To name two acupuncture points located distal to the bursae.
  • To describe at least one technique used in the treatment of the bursae.
  • To describe treatment proximally to the gluteus medius muscle.

    What People Are Saying

    Whitfield Reeves is, in my opinion, the one of the best teachers I have ever had in my 30 years of practicing!

    Jade E.- United States

    Extremely relevant information, well based on a lot of clinical experience, explained cogently with great supporting illustrations.

    Dan L.- United States

    A great presentation on a common ailment that is difficult to treat if you rely on primary meridian points.

    Erica T.- United States

    Excellent course, lots of useful and immediately applicable information!

    Conrad C.- Canada

    Whitfield Reaves is a great presenter and has a wealth of knowledge to share and explains in a way that is easy to understand and visualise.

    Kingsley A.- Australia

    As a bodyworker, the techniques in these videos are extremely easy for me to understand and immediately integrate in to my practice.

    Andrea E.- United States

    This was a comprehensive look at the increasingly common clinical presentation of greater trochanteric bursitis. Whitfield Reaves' modern perspective on what appears to be a symptom of modern inactivity adds to our understanding of orthopedic acupuncture.

    Anthony M.- Canada

    It's a pleasure to hear a teacher who is not only highly experienced and knowledgeable, but a highly skilled presenter as well. Just prior to listening to Dr. Reaves webinar, I had taken another online CE course. The other course was chaotically presented, which detracted from some good content. Thanks, I needed to see something done the way it should be!
