  • ACUPUNCTURE IN THE MANAGEMENT OF TENDINOPATHIES
     
    Moira Tunstall

  •  
    This one day course will enable participants to gain an insight into both the theoretical and practical basis for the integration of acupuncture alongside manual therapy and rehabilitative models for the treatment of tendinopathy.
    The course will demonstrate a clinical reasoning model integrating both western trigger point acupuncture and pain inhibitory models, alongside traditional Chinese acupuncture models (with a critical analysis of relevant evidence).
    The course will emphasise how acupuncture can facilitate the body's own homeostatic healing mechanisms in order to supplement rehabilitation and recovery and how this should be applied to tendinopathy. The practical component of the course will include both a revision of the meridian points that can be applied to tendinopathy within a Western evidence framework along with myofascial trigger point needling to assist with the resolution of contributing factors.

    The course is suitable for anyone who has completed accredited foundation acupuncture training with professional liability insurance for acupuncture within their scope of practice. All participants must be prepared to give and receive needling.
