Mazzanti AcuOsteo method®: a personal integration and clinical approach

Lower limbs Musculoskeletal Pain – pathology and treatment by Acupuncture and Osteopathy

September 16 &17, 2023
  • Umberto Mazzanti

Seminar description:
Musculoskeletal pain is one of the most frequent reason for consultation in my own clinic.
In my experience, Acupuncture and Osteopathic medicine are two effective techniques and they are synergistic in treating pain.
Often pain is generically reported to a small or a widespread area of a joint, together with somewhat rigidity and it can be difficult to identify the Acupuncture Channel interested by a musculoskeletal pain.
Osteopathic manipulative treatment’s aim is to bring back joints in their physiological position, reduce pain and limitation of the movement, and help to identify the channel that needs to be treated with Acupuncture.
– Pathophysiology and Diagnosis of pain in TCM and Osteopathic medicine.

– The musculoskeletal pain: the crucial role of the Secondary Channels
– Description of Muscle and Connecting Channels: functions and methods of treatment
