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 7 begins with an introduction to sports acupuncture, important for all practitioners to review. And a discussion on biomechanical causes of pain and injury follows. (1) The Gluteus medius. Covered in the two courses on the low back and hip, the gluteus medius stabilizes the pelvis, and may contribute to lower extremity repetitive stress injures. It should not be missed by the practitioner. (2) "Runner's knee". Ilio-tibial band syndrome is common in athletes and the active, and with proper assessment, is an easy-to-treat injury. (3) The Hamstrings. Hamstring strain is prevalent with the explosive athlete, like sprinters with rapid acceleration and deceleration. Treatment gives the practitioner many possible zones, including the muscle belly, trigger points, and motor 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 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.
