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 6 offers more depth on the treatment of “The Triad”, and includes other important anatomical structures of the low back and hip.
(1) The Sacral tuberus ligament. This often-overlooked ligament stabilizes the sacrum and is often the cause of buttock pain.
(2) The “Core” muscles. With acupuncture, we can treat these key muscles, assisting in proper low back stability.
(3) The Trochanteric bursae. Very easy to diagnose, this hip bursae has numerous treatment protocols that are effective.
(4) Other considerations. Gluteal tendonitis and strain is often a missed diagnosis with hip pain. Also includes commentary on the ilio-psoas and the hip capsule in both assessment and treatment.
(5) Understanding the intervertebral disc. A simple and clear presentation to a complicated subject.
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 low back and hip.
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.
