Orthopedic acupuncture deals with the prevention or healing of injuries and disorders of the skeletal system, muscles, joints, and ligaments. In Chinese medicine, each tissue; bones, muscles, adipose, and other, corresponds to an internal organ system. Therefore in bodymind medicine there is no separation between our organ health and our tissue health.
In the same way, each organ and tissue corresponds to an emotional and mental state. The ancient Chinese observed that in many cases people with liver issues had problems with muscles, ligaments and tendons, and could often be easy to anger and frustration. By helping the liver to function better, muscle pain will often lessen, and by releasing anger and frustration and becoming more peaceful, ligaments and tendons will heal. Acupuncture orthopedics focuses on the body, emotions, mind and spirit.
If someone is prone to injuries we must find the underlying cause. Often their organs are weak and hypo-functioning and this is causing a lack of awareness in the present moment. In the case of weak bones we must enhance bone health through acupuncture, nutrition and whole food supplements. We can prevent bone problems by addressing your bone health.
