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 4 discusses postural considerations, often left out of traditional acupuncture perspectives. And it includes many other useful treatment protocols for injuries to the upper extremity. (1) The rhomboid minor. Treating neck and shoulder pain as well as correcting scapular retraction. Getting those shoulders back! (2) The pectoralis major and minor. Protocols to reduce scapular protraction, as well as treatment of thoracic outlet syndrome from pectoralis minor entrapment. (3) The levator scapulae. Relaxing the neck and depressing the shoulders. (4) Treating the posterior neck, with emphasis on correcting the "anterior" head posture. (5) Other upper extremity injuries. Includes diagnosis and assessment of medial and lateral epicondylitis, and the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. 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.
