Webinar – Segmental Regulation Systems – Western Medicine

Webinar – Segmental Regulation Systems – Western Medicine

There are quite some therapies in which (predominantly) external stimuli aim to influence not only local complaints, but even the more to elicit remote therapeutic effects. The glasses you wear determine the contrasts you see. The relation between external stimulus and local or remote effects are often explained from the therapy specific point of view. Neuroanatomy and neurophysiology help to understand the relation between stimuli and their therapeutic effects as applied within different complementary medicine therapies.

Upper limbs Musculoskeletal Pain – AcuOsteo method – physiopathology and treatment by Acupuncture and Osteopathy

Upper limbs Musculoskeletal Pain – AcuOsteo method – physiopathology and treatment by Acupuncture and Osteopathy

Musculoskeletal pain is one of the most frequent reasons 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 widespread area of a joint, together with some rigidity and it can be difficult to identify the Acupuncture Channel involved in 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.
