Practitioners of East Asian medicine are often taught to look at the body “differently”. Leading to a paradox that the East and West are looking at the same body and coming to different conclusions. However, the deeper one goes into anatomy and the physical workings of the body they will walk away with an appreciation of how both approaches are actually closer in line than we tend to believe. Current concepts of pain science fall closely in line with the understanding of the “seven internal evils” in cognitive and affective factors that play a significant role in the perception of pain and the long-term impact chronic pain can have on patients. With further study of anatomy, we also see how deeply interconnected the body is and furthermore how the founders of Chinese Medicine likely understood it. In this course, we will go over a working understanding of pain science and how it relates to treatment. We will also go over concepts and treatment strategies specific to interactions with nerve, muscle, ligament, and fascial tissues. Lastly, we will tie it all together by reviewing various considerations of treatment that relate to the treatment of chronic pain.

This course is in-person learning taught by Joseph Bickle, LAc. Joseph is certified in Sports Medicine Acupuncture, Zheng Gu Tuina, and trigger point therapy.
