Classically based needling of ligamentous and articular tissues can help treat root causes of a wide range of orthopedic conditions by stabilizing and mobilizing joints with acupuncture. Take home practical methods and strategies, including specialized inspection and palpation techniques for joints and ligaments, joint active and passive range-of-motion and end-feel examination, needling safety and techniques, and post-treatment joint re-assessment of immediate assessment of outcomes for:
• Shoulder girdle and arm: the acromio- and sterno- clavicular, glenhumeral, ulnar- and radio-carpal; radio-ulnar; thumb CMC, and MCP joints
• Lower leg: the knee ACL, MCL, LCL, meniscii, superior tib-fib; ankle anterior talofibular and calcaneofibular joints
• Spine: cervical and lumbar facets; supraspinous, interspinous, iliolumbar, sacroiliac, and sacrotuberous ligaments
