Shin splints is a repetitive stress injury characterized by strain or inflammation of the anterior tibialis or other anterior compartment muscles of the leg. The site of injury may be the muscle, the tendon, or at the attachment to the periosteum and bone. The patient presents with pain and tenderness along the anterior lateral aspect of the leg just lateral to the tibia.
Shin splints is the common term for anterior tibial stress syndrome. It is a frequent sports injury, as it comprises approximately 60 percent of all leg pain injuries. In this webinar, Whitfield Reaves will discuss the injury with its relatively easy diagnosis, assessment, and treatment techniques. This case is clearly Stomach meridian pathology, and sometimes the zang-fu organs are involved. It is an important injury to learn as a practitioner, as even walking and hiking can produce the symptoms.

This course is divided into two parts, of about 5.5 hours each. The first part is about the Feet, the second part is about the Neck. Both are taught in Kiiko Matsumoto Style (KMS) acupuncture, with case presentations. The section on the feet explores the concept of “jue”, a concept that is heavily referred to in the classical texts as having importance beyond its inclusion in the nomenclature jue yin. Jue points that reflect the meridian zones have been located on the feet by Master Maruyama and implemented into practice in KMS. Jue points are particularly successful in treating problems in the head, and problems below the knee.
The second section of the course focuses on treating neck pain. Specific diagnostic and treatment protocols are outlined for each of the seven cervical vertebrae, and cases that include neck pain from different causes are presented and resolved.
