A Weekend Seminar With Whitfield Reaves, OMD, LAc
Acupuncture Treatment of Sports Injuries and Pain
Three days of instruction on orthopedic and sports acupuncture. Common injuries and pain syndromes of the shoulder, upper extremity, low back and hip, and the lower extremity will be covered. This three day course will include lecture, demonstration, and supervised practice. Assistants will be present for additional supervision of location, palpation, and needle techniques.
This seminar by Whitfield Reaves is on the topic of Acupuncture Sports Medicine. And all the most important sports injuries and pain syndromes commonly seen the the acupuncture clinic. Whitfield will emphasize “anatomically significant points” of the musculoskeletal system. These points are used to treat injury and pain, as well as to harmonize the biomechanics and movement patterns of the body, and are the “access points” in orthopedic and sports medicine acupuncture. They include the traditional points of acupuncture, the extraordinary points, and some points or zones not elucidated in the texts, such as trigger points and motor points. Each of these points are located in anatomically significant tissues of the body, and therefore tend to have profound effects on both structure and function.
In this three day seminar, we will cover the precise locations of the important points of the upper extremity, the lower extremity, the shoulder, hip, and the trunk of the body. And we will teach you point location and needle technique. And most importantly, the common conditions to use them for
Conditions included in this seminar:
- The neck and shoulder, including rotator cuff tendonitis and bursitis
- The upper extremity, such as tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome
- Points to treat pain in the low back and hip, including the sacral iliac joint and trochanteric bursitis.
- Lower extremity injuries such as shin splints, achilles tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis.
The important anatomically significant points of the body will be covered for treatment of these common injuries. The seminar will give instruction on
- Location of the clinically important points of sports acupuncture
- Point depth and density will be covered, a topic rarely included in teaching and the texts
- Some orthopedic tests will be taught, including manual muscle testing, which may assist the practitioner in point selection
- The actions and indications for use in orthopedic and sports medicine acupuncture
This course will consist of instructor lecture and demonstration. We will also offer time for student practice, as Whitfield will have a number of assistants to help with supervision of location and needling. It is important for the attendee to understand that they will be practicing this material, from location and palpation to needle technique.
The material of this seminar is the integration of traditional Chinese acupuncture with western orthopedic and sports medicine. With precise instruction, demonstration, and some supervised practice, each practitioner increases their knowledge and confidence in key anatomically significant points. Having spent over two decades with Olympic and world-class athletes, Whitfield’s experience is invaluable for all those working in the field of orthopedics and sports medicine.
