Neuro-anatomical acupuncture for rotator cuff & shoulder girdle dysfunction

Many practitioners lack confidence in treating rotator cuff problems yet it is very common in clinical practice.  The shoulder is a complex joint designed for a wide range of movements: elevation, depression, internal/external rotation, abduction, adduction, protraction and retraction.  This workshop will review the musculature and peripheral nerves that act on the shoulder and how to use electrical acupuncture to reduce pain, improve range of movement, enhance joint stability and muscle activation.

  1. Learn to analyze shoulder dysfunction based on trigger point, tendinopathy, hypertonicity and motor inhibition.
  2. Learn to translate each of the 8 possible movement problems to muscle groups and associated nerves, as well as associated points.
  3. Learn the needle technique, De Qi confirmation and electrical acupuncture strategy to target neuroanatomically precise points.
  4. Be confident in assessing and treating complex shoulder dysfunction.
