Courses / LIVE EVENT - Acupuncture Treatment of the Postural Muscles for Neck, Shoulder, and Low Back Dysfunction
What is Net of Knowledge?

OVERVIEW

This is a Live Webinar event that will be held on July 7, 2022 - 12pm PDT, 3pm EDT.

In this three hour webinar, Whitfield Reaves will share some of his favorite treatment approaches that target the postural muscles. Practitioners frequently observe poor posture that results in pain and dysfunction. So prevelant, you probably already use many similar points to provide relief for the patient. This webinar offers some skillful adaptations and precision to these acupuncture treatments. And the approach also supports therapeutic exercise, which is usually needed to resolve postural dysfunction.

The following are important postural muscles that respond very well to precise acupuncture treatment and well chosen points.

1. The Levator scapulae

Provides support for the neck and shoulder.

2. The Posterior neck muscles

These extensors keep the head erect, and help with anterior head position

3. The Pectoralis minor

Often in contraction, this muscle pulls the shoulders in the anterior forward position. They need help! We will add the Rhomboid minor, which is not a postural muscle, to this discussion.

4. The Quadratus lumborum

The QL is key to the lumbar spine, and skillful needling of this muscle is one of the most important treatments in clinic.

5. The Core Muscles

Yes, they are technically not postural muscles, but their role in supporting the back and the lumbar spine is essential.

These five muscles, when anatomically understood, can provide effective sites for needling and correcting posture. Note that we will not teach corrective exercise in this video.

The recordings will be made available for you to review after the event!
