Course Overview

Many patients come to the clinic for complaints related to pain and trauma. While acupuncture remains the foundation for treatment, integrating Chinese herbal medicine, both internal and external, can help the patient make significant progress. In this recorded webinar, Dr. Fratkin discusses trauma-related complaints including acute injury with swelling, acute soft-tear injuries, muscle strain, wounds, and chronic pain following trauma. Non-traumatic pain conditions will include arthritis, lower back pain, sciatic pain, knee pain, and neck pain. Following an overview of the etiology and pathophysiology of the various conditions, Dr. Fratkin also presents available herbal products and custom formulas for both internal and external application, with emphasis on ingredient composition. Most formulas discussed are available in product form, with certain custom prescriptions for advanced herbalists. Extensive handout notes are included with the recorded course.
