Series Overview

Mastering the Treatment of Injury and Pain is the latest webinar from the office and clinic of Whitfield Reaves. In these courses, he describes specific assessment and treatment protocols for common clinical conditions. Emphasis is on gaining an anatomical understanding of the tissues involved, such as trigger points and motor points. The clear and precise techniques that result are sure to benefit your patients with injury and pain.

Course 1 is an introduction to acupuncture sports medicine. We must understand what anatomical and orthopedic acupuncture is, and how it is used in a modern setting. This introductory course prepares the practitioner for each of the remaining modules. Course 2, 3, and 4 cover the shoulder and upper extremity. The low back and hip are discussed in Course 5 and 6. And finally, the lower extremity completes this webinar series with Course 7, 8, and 9.

Each course contains lengthy presentations by the instructor, Whitfield Reaves. It may even include how the sports acupuncture community evolved these treatments, most of which were not written in any of the texts from China. At the end of each course, there is a short summary which gives the practitioner a quick way to reference the material. That is followed by demonstration videos of palpation, location, and needle techniques.

This webinar series is designed to be viewed in sequential order. We strongly recommend that the practitioner complete the courses of this series from beginning to end.

Course Overview

Mastering the Treatment of Injury and Pain is a webinar series for the serious practitioner of 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 of the numerous types of tissues involved, such as trigger points, motor points, tendons, and ligaments. Course 1 is an introduction to acupuncture sports medicine. We must understand what anatomical and orthopedic acupuncture is, and how it is used in a modern setting. This course continues with describing “anatomically significant points”. It is essential to understand how each of the different anatomical structures respond to needle insertion, electrical stimulation, and other approaches like moxa and cupping. For instance, needle insertion into a muscle belly will be quite different than tapping on a ligament. And if there is fibrosis, the point density increases. The concept of fibrosis brings clarity to what we call in traditional Chinese medicine stagnation of qi and stagnation of blood. And finally, the Four Steps, developed by the presenter, then becomes a guide to treatment. Each step has a specific role in the protocol, and as a whole, these Four Steps offer structure to the treatment of pain and injury. Understanding the Four Steps is a significant benefit for the practitioner, as it often assures that the proper treatment is not overlooked. This webinar series is designed to be viewed in sequential order. We strongly recommend that the practitioner complete the courses of this series from beginning to end.

Course Overview

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 5 presents “The Triad”, and the postural stabilizing aspects of three important anatomical structures of the low back. (1) The Gluteus medius. This muscle stabilizes the pelvis with every step we take, so it is crucial that it is properly functioning. In addition, both the gluteus medius and minimus have referral pain patterns in the lumbo-sacral and hip region that the practitioner needs to know. (2) The Quadratus lumborum. Called “the joker of low back pain”, this postural muscle is often overlooked by the practitioner. With his course, you will not miss this important muscle involved in virtually all cases of back pain. (3) The Sacral-iliac joint. Overlooked by traditional texts, palpation is key to assessment, and our clear and description of treatment logically follows. 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 webinar series is designed to be viewed in sequential order. We strongly recommend that the practitioner complete the courses of this series from beginning to end.

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.

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 7 begins with an introduction to sports acupuncture, important for all practitioners to review. And a discussion on biomechanical causes of pain and injury follows. (1) The Gluteus medius. Covered in the two courses on the low back and hip, the gluteus medius stabilizes the pelvis, and may contribute to lower extremity repetitive stress injures. It should not be missed by the practitioner. (2) “Runner’s knee”. Ilio-tibial band syndrome is common in athletes and the active, and with proper assessment, is an easy-to-treat injury. (3) The Hamstrings. Hamstring strain is prevalent with the explosive athlete, like sprinters with rapid acceleration and deceleration. Treatment gives the practitioner many possible zones, including the muscle belly, trigger points, and motor points. The material of this webinar series is the integration of traditional Chinese acupuncture with western orthopedic and sports medicine.

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 8 covers: (1) The Anterior knee. Most commonly called patello-femoral joint dysfunction, this type of anterior knee pain has simple treatment, yet it must be precise. Needling to the sub-patellar region is key. (2) The Medial knee. The medial compartment of the knee can be both acute and chronic. Targets include the joint space and the ligament. “Threading the joint space” may be an effective treatment. (3) The Pes anserine. Lacking in the modern Chinese texts, this condition needs proper assessment. Treatment is then relatively simple, with the tendons and bursae of the pes accessible in the region of Spleen 9. (4) Shin splints. The anterior compartment presents with clear treatment strategies, while the medial compartment oftentimes is more complicated. Proper depth of needle is essential.

Whitfield Reeves is the best. A great teacher, immense clinical experience, bases his recommendations on what he has seen work, is not afraid to challenge text book classics when it does not match his long term experience. Is wiling to share everything and does not have some secrets he is unwilling to share with everyone. He is a humble good man in service to his patients and the profession. His teaching will benefit thousands he will never know of.
Dan L. - United States
Whitfield Reaves is a wonderful teacher giving all relevant information, staying on topic with great clinical stories and demonstrations to illustrate his material. I love the way he integrates modern western sports medicine wisdom with TCM methods.
Erica T. - United States
Whitfield Reaves is so incredibly knowledgeable and easily conveys information. While I have read his book and loved it, this seminar added those clinical pearls that you cant get from reading any book. Cant wait to watch the next installment!
