Kinetic acupuncture is a unique and dynamic treatment technique that uses movement and exercise during treatment to promote circulation, structural balance, pain relief, and most importantly, the recovery of functions in injured areas. This method of acupuncture is famous for creating effective, immediate, and lasting results, especially for pain conditions. The origin of Kinetic acupuncture, “Acupuncture with movement”, can be found in Hui Ci needling of the classical Nei-Jing. And now, Dr. Choi has translated its teaching in a very easy-to-understand format so that you can learn how to care for your patients adequately and effortlessly.

In Part I of this two-part series, Dr. Hyung Suk Choi, one of Korea’s top acupuncture clinician with over 24 years of experience specializing in musculoskeletal pain disorders, will share his vast knowledge of Kinetic acupuncture, including its indications, safety concerns, and contraindications. He will give step-by-step and clear instructions and examples of how to diagnosis the condition, what points to needle, how to needle the points, and how to modify the points if necessary. The pain conditions Dr. Choi will focus on in this course are shoulder and low back pain.

QnA Video 1, 2, 3

Thank you all! I am following up with the questions I could not answer at the class. This is for the lecture; "Maximize Recovery of Musculoskeletal Pain with Kinetic Acupuncture, Part I"

Video No.1
Using inversion table with acupuncture is one of the common method in Kinetic acupuncture. I have one in my office too.

@Thomas, Laura, Brianna
Thank you!

Video No.2
ATX : acupuncture treatment. Sorry for not clarifying abbreviation.

Pressing beforehand needling is common method. Force should be adjusted based on patient's condition. For instance, hard pressure should not be done for points around acute injury(excessive in TCM). But, I found out that some of my students press to subtle to locate the point exactly and to reduce the needle pain. This will be the topic in next class too.

Yes, e-stim on healthy side.

Yes, my many friend and I also approach from the armpit with shoulder abduction position, when I palpate tightness.

Maybe perpendicular is not right description. Following the inner surface of scapular slightly toward scapular, away from thorax, eventually hitting the scapular.

Video No.3
Does ROM last after treatment? Yes, it does, as long as patient follow ROM exercise at home. If patient disuse arm, they lose ROM again.

Needle insertion for subacromial space located at bursa, needle insertion is supposed to be without resistance. MD uses this place for injection too for shoulder pain.

Gwandongchim(Needle on joint with movement) is usually remained with oscillation and traction, and removed for flexion and extension of shoulder.

Distant needling is applied based on severity. If patient complains pain with movement, that is the time to apply ST38 and ST40, and E-stim, sequentially. Usually LI5 and LI11 from the start.

This modality is for frozen shoulder. Acute rotator cuff tear can be contraindication of this method. If the tear is chronic with absolute limited ROM(even with passive force), this method can be very useful.

Geundongchim with stretching is used for Tennis elbow which will be the topic of next class.

That is very insightful. Actually in Korea, vibration devices have been tried for these techniques, and I am researching too.
