Course Overview

A 78- year-old man comes in the Emergency department with back pain that radiates down his legs. Treatment protocols for this condition are vastly different depending in which paradigm of medicine is used. In this recorded talk, Dr. Keown discusses and compares how back pain is approached from a Western perspective, and how it is approached from the Eastern perspective. He introduces an understanding of fascia that allows us to approach back pain from East to West with equanimity. As an emergency room physician, he discusses some of the techniques he has used to successfully treat patients in acute pain.

  • Understand embryology creates the connections in the body
  • Fascia is the structural building block

Daniel Keown is a very enthusiastic and energetic speaker who infuses humour and stories into his teaching style. I really enjoyed this course and would like to see more courses presented by him.
Wendy C. - Canada
This is tremendously important work. David Keown takes the language of Channel Theory and the visual artifacts of surgery and makes it clear that we have concrete ways to understand what we are doing when we are practicing acupuncture. Not only does Dr. Keown demystify acupuncture, he shows how important it is that surgeons and acupuncturists learn from one another in order to practice the best medicine possible for our patients.
