Dr. David Wells, with dual degrees in chiropractic and acupuncture, shares his wealth of orthopedic experience in this course to advance the clinical skills of practitioners to diagnose and treat mid-cervical syndromes such as cervical sprains (whiplash), cervical disc syndrome with radiculopthy, thoracic outlet syndrome, torticollis, and cervicalgia using Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), biomedical testing (orthopedic, neurological, laboratory, imaging and physical exam techniques), and nutrition. Over 60% of patients seek treatment from acupuncturists because the patient is in pain. Knowing how to accurately diagnose these conditions is essential. Understanding how other practitioners such as medical doctors and chiropractors approach these issues helps the acupuncturist to integrate into the broader biomedical community and receive more referrals.

Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:

  • Know the incidence and mechanism of onset of mid-cervical sprain injuries.
  • Understand the common concurrent or sequela conditions that result from mid-cervical injuries.
  • Be able to utilize orthopedic and neurological examinations to arrive at differential diagnoses for mid-cervical injuries.
  • Know how to apply treatment methodologies for mid-cervical conditions.
