This seminar covers assessment and treatment of some of the most common lower body conditions you will see in your clinic.   Treatment of these conditions includes electro-acupuncture, motor points, soft tissue, and other modalities, for a comprehensive approach and the best outcomes possible.  This seminar includes lecture and a substantial amount of hands-on practice, along with demos.

Course outline:

•A. Acute, Sub-Acute and Chronic Low Back Pain (2)

What are the causes?
•What are the physiological mechanisms?
•When is it considered a clinical emergency?
•How do you perform an assessment on sub-acute low back pain?
•What are your clinical goals based on your assessment?
•How do determine acupuncture point selection when planning patient treatment?
•What are the different treatment approaches to addressing sub-acute low back pain with electroacupuncture?
Demo: Assessment & Treatment of Sub-acute Low Back Pain Patient

How to provide an acute & sub-acute low back pain assessment
•Demonstration of acupuncture point selection and treatment of acute low back pain using motor points, the pointer plus, and electro stimulators.

•B. Osteoarthritis in the Lower Extremity

1. Causes of Osteoarthritis:

•Pathological Development
•Effect of Trauma on the Joint
•Role in Motor Inhibition
•Role of Proprioception

2. Review of Anatomy and Joint Function

• Hip • 2 knee joints •3 ankle joints
•Sacroiliac Joints and associated lumbar spine structures.

3. Review of Electroacupuncture Treatment Strategies

•Two Needle Technique: bone, ligament capsule, joint
•Joint Threading
•Effect of varying frequencies

4. Demonstration/Explanation of Joint Needling Treatment

•hip joint (femoral-acetabular),
•knee (patello-femoral/tibo-fib) joint,
•ankle joint (subtalar/talocural/talonavicular),
•sacro-illiac joint
•ilio-lumbar ligament

•C. Cutaneous Nerves in the Lower Body

Cutaneous nerve electro-acupuncture can increase the treatment outcomes of your patients, and can significantly reduce pain and improve joint function.

Electro-acupuncture on cutaneous nerves works to:
1. Remove stimulus which causes dermatomal pain.
2. Improve range of motion in joints supplied by cutaneous nerves.
3. Increase entire limb flexibility and movement by treating cutaneous nerve compression sites.

Cutaneous nerves covered:

cluneal
lateral femoral cutaneous
anterior femoral cutaneous
saphenous nerve
articular branch of sciatic nerve
posterior femoral cutaneous
recurrent articular branch of peroneal nerve
sural nerve
geniculate nerve (branch of sciatic)

•D. Assessment & Treatment of Plantar Fasciitis Using Electro-acupuncture and associated modalities.

In Depth Review of Relevant Clinical Anatomy

•Motor/sensory nerves
•Ligaments, fascia, tendons, joints
•Musculature
•Blood supply

Role of Neurogenic Inflammation

•Review of what is neurogenic inflammation?
•Review of role and time frame of different stages of tissue healing

History/Assessment of Plantar Fascia patients

•ROM
•EXSTORE role
•special testing
•learning history taking

Treatment options and demonstrations of plantar fasciitis

•Electroacupuncture
•Motor point acupucture
•Guasha and manual techniques
•Role of laser therapy

•E. What is lower extremity Peripheral Nerve Entrapment?

•physiology of peripheral nerve entrapment?
•stages of nerve injury and inflammation cascade
•general signs/symptoms of nerve entrapment

Each of the following entrapment sites will discuss and demonstrate the following:

•How to assess respective PNE’s
•How to release PNE’s using electro-acupuncture
•How to release PNE’s using manual release
•Learn rehab exercises to teach your patient to do at home

-lateral femoral cutaneous nerve
-femoral nerve
-obturator nerve
-sciatic nerve
-peroneal Nerve
-tibial nerve

•F. Assessment & Treatment of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
