Integrative Myofascial Acupuncture – Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

with Rory Knapp-Fisher, April 2-3, 2022

Workshop Information

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) is a condition which affects many people and can be infamously resistant to treatment. One of the main reasons for this is the complex etiology which typically involves multiple factors ranging from repetitive movement, physical trauma, and emotional stress. In this workshop we will unpack TOS and gain more clarity on how to approach and successfully treat it in our patients. We will cover:

  • The different mechanisms for TOS
  • Differential diagnosis and assessment
  • How to identify and address underlying postural and movement patterns
  • Correlating patterns in Chinese medicine
  • Myofascial acupuncture treatment strategies.
  • Simple rehab exercises to maximize clinical results.
