A Manual of Neuro-Anatomical Acupuncture – Volume 1: Musculo-Skeletal Disorders
Volume One of this three-volume book series, deals with musculoskeletal disorders. It includes a brief summary and description of TCM, of the basic meridians, of standard nomenclature, and of the biochemical mechanism involved. Acupuncture as a physical therapy and its utility in pain management and normalization of the ANS are discussed, along with the therapeutic strategies of neuro-anatomical acupuncture. Treatment formularies of points are presented for the neck, back and perineum, shoulder, elbow and forearm, wrist and hand, hip, knee and leg, and ankle and foot.
There are clearly labelled and rendered illustrative drawings depicting point locations from a surface, muscle, and skeletal juxtaposition. Sets of tables identify meridian, acupuncture point, and location, and other tables identify innervation correlations for muscle, action, peripheral nerve, spinal segment, and acupuncture point. Presentations of clinical application include biomedical condition and bulleted point lists.
These texts are particularly useful selections for practitioners of nerve-based approaches to using the acupuncture points.
