New and Creative Treatments for the Plantar Fascia

with Whitfield Reaves

Recording

from December 1, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

Join Whitfield Reaves to learn how to diagnose this common source of foot pain, and treat both plantar fasciitis as well as the more current condition often called plantar fasciosis. They are different conditions, need differentiation, and there are several creative and precise treatments that can assist clinically. The practitioner needs to understand how to target the tissues of the fascia as well as including the all important abductor hallucis muscle. Often left out of heel pain treatments, this muscle to the big toe plays a significant role in both pain and the healing process. The practitioner, with this information, can find some more gentle and relatively pain free point combinations to use in treating plantar pain.

After the lecture, we will have an audience Q&A session with Whitfield. This session is designed to make sure each practitioner is clear on the precise treatment needed in plantar fasciitis and plantar fasciosis. But we intend to open up the rest of this free webinar to all questions. "Ask us anything", on any topic of sports acupuncture. This should be fun!

For our friends in timezones that can not join us live, feel free to register to watch the recording.

Overview

Auricular Medicine is a specialty within Traditional Chinese Medicine that has its roots in the Huang Di Nei Jing and some of its branches in Western Medicine. Using the micro-system of the Auricle, Auricular Medicine has developed into an incredibly sophisticated system of both diagnosis and treatment of all bio-systems of the body. The diagnosis is remarkably comprehensive and accurate. Without a patient interview, or history, the examination alone provides the doctor with more information than the patient’s intake paperwork. Treatment can relieve acute pain within seconds. Dr. TruthSayer’s introduction includes many interesting cases from her clinical practice.

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.

Five Sports Injuries, Five Points to Treat

with Whitfield Reaves

Recording

from April 14, 2020

Register for FREE!

Overview

We often come to expect that many a case is complicated and requires analysis and the assessment is layered and complex. Yet, Occam's Razor, a somewhat obscure tenant of philosophy, states that, simply expressed, "the simplest solution is most likely the right one”. Whitfield Reaves will present five common sports injury and pain syndromes, and explain how it is common and likely that each of these cases could be treated by one specific point. No longer the long list of point combinations to cover all aspect of the presentation of the patient – one point. Of course, we would need know how to correctly locate and needle the point, but, what a relief. One point, and great results.

While of course this is not always possible, listen to Whitfield's adaptation of Occam's theory of "keeping it simple", and its application in medicine. And, maybe even come away with one-point treatment plans for a few common injuries!

Whitfield Reaves is the author of The Acupuncture Sports Medicine Apprenticeship Program, and his webinars are quite popular on the Net of Knowledge platform.
