Treating Arthritis with Chinese Medicine
One in four American adults are diagnosed with arthritis (https://www.cdc.gov/arthritis/data_statistics/national-statistics.html). And, as Chinese medical practitioners, we often see it in the clinic. This course will look at various arthitides, especially osteo- and rheumatoid, from both a biomedical and Chinese medical point of view. We will discuss real world approaches to diagnosing and treating these painful conditions as well as educating our patients about them. If you haven’t treated a lot of arthritis patients, this course will give you the foundations for doing so effectively. If you are experienced at treating these conditions, this course will give you the current biomedical approaches as well new perspectives on Chinese medical approaches. No matter what your experience, this is a vital course for treating your patients.
This course will be a live webinar on Sunday, May 29 and December 18, 2022 from 1-4pm pst.
A participant in this course will be able to:
- Understand arthritides, especially osteo- and rheumatoid, from a biomedical perspective
- Apply Chinese and biomedical diagnostics to patients with arthritis
- Develop appropriate and effective treatment strategies
- Properly document the diagnosis and treatment
