Treating Common Musculoskeletal Conditions with Osteopathic Manipulation, Meridian Therapy, Dry Needling and Manual Muscle Testing


The American Academy of Medical Acupuncture is pleased to announce another offering of an exciting education opportunity — a 2-day workshop to be held at in Chicago, IL on October 24-25, 2020, presented by Jay Sandweiss, DO, FAAMA & Joseph Audette, MD, MA.


This workshop will offer participants an opportunity to learn applied kinesiology and osteopathic muscle testing strategies for common musculoskeletal conditions in order to identify neuro-muscular inhibition patterns. Participants will learn to integrate basic osteopathic manual methods with acupuncture techniques such as dry needling and meridian therapies to resolve the condition and restore muscle and joint function instantly. These methods are part of a series of acupuncture techniques that produce rapid effects. Drs. Audette and Sandweiss will present a highly effective approach for diagnosing and treating common problems such as: tennis and golfer elbow, rotator cuff syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee pain, ankle sprains and neck and back pain issues throughout the spinal regions. Upon completion of this workshop attendees will have new tools for quickly assessing and treating musculoskeletal conditions throughout the body.  Attendees will learn to integrate osteopathic manipulation, Meridian Therapy, dry needling and manual muscle testing.
