Review

Because musculoskeletal pain is a commonly seen syndrome for acupuncturists, Whitfield Reaves s publication, The Acupuncture Handbook of Sports Injuries and Pain, is a must have for all practitioners regardless of their specialty. It is refreshing to see a book formatted based on techniques that have been clinically proven to work based on the authors 25 years of experience. The Acupuncture Handbook of Sports Injuries and Pain, is a well-illustrated, resourceful and easy-to-use handbook covering simple assessment techniques and treatment of 25 common musculoskeletal injuries. Using the meridian systems, motor points and trigger points along with specific needle techniques, the reader will be able to quickly apply the information presented into clinical treatment. --Matt Callison, L.Ac.

This is an extraordinary book. Whitfield, whom I have known for almost 25 years, has summed up his vast experience and technical innovation of treating soft tissue injury into a remarkably easy to use, step-by-step, handbook. His book addresses 25 common injuries and pain patterns affecting the following: the heel, foot, leg, knee, thigh, hip, lower back, hand, elbow, shoulder and neck. If we look at the nine-page chapter on Frozen Shoulder, we get an idea of Whitfield s organization. First, a one-page summation of Diagnosis and Assessment. Then, on a single page in outline form is Summary of the Injury, which includes Clinical Features, Common Patient Complaints, Differentiation from Similar Injuries and Conditions, and Typical Medical Recommendations. Following, in short outline form, is Treatment and Techniques, with an Overview and Prognosis. For each chapter, Whitfield then leads the practitioner through his four step protocol. For Frozen Shoulder, in Step One (Initial Treatment), he offers four techniques, including the tendino-muscle meridians, contra-lateral treatment, opposite extremity treatment, and empirical points. The practitioner may choose from any and all of these techniques. Included are special needle techniques and comments for each of his recommendations. Step Two offers treatments based on meridians and microsystems, such as shu-stream point combinations, xi-cleft, extraordinary meridians, and auricular therapy. This includes rationalization and degree of predicable success. Step Three addresses possible underlying zang-fu imbalances and their need for treatment. Step Four offers detailed examination of important local and ah shi points relevant to the injury. Anyone who has studied with Whitfield, or has been his patient, observes several things. Foremost, his treatments are remarkably effective. He often tells patients that he expects recovery within three treatments. Secondly, Whit's genius is his knowledge of local and distal palpatory points that are critical to success; few books reveal these points or Whitfield s unique needle technique. Third, his knowledge of local anatomy allows for point combinations that take into account local innervation, origin and insertion of muscles, and the relationship of ligaments and tendons to the injury. He is truly a master of his art, and this mastery is well articulated in The Acupuncture Handbook of Sports Injuries and Pain. This book is so beautifully organized, with excellent illustrations of local anatomy, that it is very easy to use. For serious practitioners specializing in pain and trauma, The Acupuncture Handbook of Sports Injuries and Pain will quickly become their most valued authoritative clinical guide. --Jake Fratkin, OMD, L.Ac.
