The combination of Acupuncture and Osteopathy for knee pain: a personal clinical approach


Language: English

Field: Acupuncture, Diagnostics, Practice

This Lecture is suitable for All levels

The author presents his experience acquired in the treatment of knee pain occurring with or without evidence of a specific traumatic event. In the latter case, pain can arise as a result of awkward postures, sports-related repetitive microtrauma or osteoarthrosis. The knee pain the author is talking about may have many causes ranging from meniscal pathology to tendonitis of the collateral ligaments, insertional tendinopathy or chondromalacia patella.

The proposed therapy is a combination of Acupuncture and Osteopathic techniques resulting in a personal clinical approach to diagnosis which is based on Western Medicine, TCM principles and Osteopathy. The aim of this new method designed by the author is to treat the two conditions causing pain: the patient’s energy imbalance and dysfunction of the joint mobility.
