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 3 begins with an overview of important "tools", including electro-stimulation, gua sha, cups, and specific needles used in sports acupuncture. It continues with:

(1) The rotator cuff attachment, the Teres minor, the Subcapularis.
(2) The Shu-stream point combination. A discussion on the use of the shu-stream points in treating pain.
(3) The Biceps. Assessment and treatment of bicipital tendonitis, including "threading the tendon".
(4) The Tendino-muscle meridians.The Tendino-muscle meridians are useful in treating muscular and fascial pain, yet are often overlooked by modern era Chinese acupuncture. Some important facets of this system are covered, and how to use them.
(5) The shoulder capsule. Unique "front and back" treatment that targets the shoulder capsule

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.

This series was introduced in 2021 and represents Whitfield's most current material on sports acupuncture, with demonstration video filmed in HD. The nine courses include additional injuries not covered in the 2011 series, Acupuncture Sports Medicine Webinar Series. Each course in this new series features more in-depth instruction on diagnosis, assessment, and treatment techniques. Whether or not you have already taken the older series, this new one is a must-have for deepening your clinical mastery.

    Fantastic course, detailed descriptions of pathologies and treatment protocols. I love the addition of included "teaching points," which highlight techniques practitioners may or may not be familiar with and are always wonderful to review under a new lens of protocols!
