Matt Callison

Biography

Matt Callison uses his experience and education as an acupuncturist and athletic trainer to contribute to the development of blending Sports Medicine and Chinese Medicine with the intention of helping others.

Matt Callison’s unique ability to blend Chinese Medicine with Sports Medicine for over 25 years is demonstrated by his excellent reputation. This is particularly evident in his educational program, the “Sports Medicine Acupuncture Certification Program”, which is attended by acupuncturists worldwide. He has over 20 years experience in cadaver dissection that has helped him to further broaden and deepen his educational program for the acupuncturist. Mr. Callison has had a clinical practice for over 26 years and is well known for developing innovative and successful treatment protocols for musculoskeletal injury. He has published many articles including a clinical study on acupuncture and tibial stress syndromes (shin splints) as well as an article on Sports Related Muscle Tension Headaches in the Journal of Chinese Medicine. Furthermore, Mr. Callison is well-known for his work with professional athletes. Mr. Callison is also the creator of the Motor Point and Acupuncture Meridian Chart as well as the author of three publications, The Motor Point Manual, Motor Point Index and in press: The Sports Medicine Acupuncture textbook.

Matt Callison earned his Bachelor’s degree in Physical Education/Sports Medicine from San Diego State University in 1985. He worked in the Sports Medicine field at Alvarado Sports Medicine clinic in San Diego and Scripps Hospital in La Jolla, CA for 6 years. In 1991, Mr. Callison received his Master’s Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, where the class he developed is still being taught- “Treatment of Orthopedic Disorders”. Mr. Callison serves as Pacific College’s supervisor of acupuncture interns at the University of California’s San Diego Sports Medicine RIMAC Center, where they treat athletes with his guidance in Sports Medicine Acupuncture. Mr. Callison continues to guest lecture in many acupuncture doctoral programs across the United States.

Overview

This 2-day cutting-edge course will teach the practitioner how to assess postural dysfunction and prescribe therapeutic exercises for postural, muscle and channel imbalances that have directly contributed to the patient's musculoskeletal injury. This course will teach the acupuncturist important skills to prescribe specific exercises in the management of their patient’s health care. Exercising different body parts simultaneously in specific and coordinated motions activates the myofascial sinew channels so that form and function can align. The practitioner will learn to integrate acupuncture protocols with exercise prescription, including how to use intra-dermal needle point prescriptions on the Extraordinary Vessel master points to alleviate discomfort, increase proprioception and enhance clinical outcomes.

Overview

This webinar highlights a recent video and accompanying blog (www.sportsmedicineacupuncture.com/blog) featuring Matt Callison L.Ac and Brian Lau AP, C.SMA as they develop, design and work through the logistical issues of a telemedicine assessment and treatment prescription on a patient with low back pain. The intent of this webinar is to provide acupuncturists with ideas to help their patients during these challenging and fast-changing times of COVID-19. The current surge in demand for telemedicine consultations, coupled with the fact that most practitioners have little experience in long distance consultation, prompted us to release this webinar as a learning tool, so practitioners could see our process.
