Treating Arthritis with Chinese Medicine

(1 customer review)


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.

  1. Rebecca

    Well researched, well organized, balanced overview of both new biomedical and TCM perspectives on arthritis, with humane treatment suggestions (at a fairly humane price, too). Energetic speaker, presenting interesting and consistently useful, practical information, and willing to share his own clinical experience. Thanks.
