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.
