Course Description

Responsive image

This 2-day course will be involving a non-chemically treated anatomical specimen (leg) that will help acupuncturists to better understand the underlying anatomy and the myofascial planes of the sinew channels.

Postural and muscle imbalances such as pes planus (foot over-pronation) predispose the patient to lower extremity injuries such as: plantar fasciitis, Morton’s neuroma, medial tibial stress syndrome, Achilles tendinopathy, tarsal tunnel syndrome, pes anserine tendinopathy, patellar tendinopathy and even lumbopelvic and hip injuries. Foot pronation is a part of normal foot motion during gait and is regulated by an even balance in the sinew channels, especially the biao li channel relationships of the Kidney-Urinary Bladder and Spleen-Stomach sinew channels. When the foot is pronated, its spring-like action provides both shock absorption and elastic recoil to propel continuous movement. However, in many people the foot rolls into excessive pronation resulting in above imbalances and injuries.

In this workshop, we will assess common muscle imbalances of pes planus and treat the postural distortion with acupuncture protocols and innovative needle techniques to the affected sinew channels. Treatment techniques for many leg, foot and ankle injuries will be demonstrated. In addition, therapeutic exercises will be demonstrated that greatly enhance rehabilitation success.
