Integrating Manual Medicine and Nutritional Therapy
with Acupuncture
Dear Friends and Colleagues… It is always a distinct honor
and pleasure to present workshops. As many of you know,
I have been treating patients for over thirty years using
a variety of modalities, including both complementary/
alternative therapies and conventional “standard of
care” medicine. Buzz words like “evidence-based” and
“standard of care” have undergone their own evolution
in the past three decades. As a medical student, I was
chastised for asking questions about the use of folic acid
for the prevention of neural tube defects, magnesium for
certain arrhythmias and migraine, fish oil for autoimmune
disease and cardiovascular health, and the existence of
Helicobacter Pylori(which my course instructor dismissed as
“junk science” proposed by a misguided quack Australian).
We laugh now as these examples have been integrated into
mainstream medicine, but we must not forget that for better
or worse, medical science is a very conservative, skeptical,
critical entity that often dismisses truth with unfortunate
consequences only to embrace these same facts later
Jay Sandweiss, D.O., F.A.A.M.A.
on down the road. Students of medical history are often
appalled by what was the“standard of care” in those past times. Ridiculing and punishing handwashing with soap, femur amputations for the treatment of pernicious anemia, and dismissing
“stocking-glove” paresthesias and carpal tunnel syndrome as psychiatric illnesses or
malingering were all part of a long-established history of blaming the patient whenever possible
and punishing those that threatened the reigning paradigm. As acupuncturists, we have seen a
growing acceptance and demand from the public at large to provide our services. “Evidencebased” studies have slowly infiltrated the mainstream medical establishment to the point
where acupuncture is often included as a viable intervention for numerous conditions. Similar
patterns of change have occurred in the fields of manual medicine and nutritional therapy. The
burden of “evidence-based” studies helps prevent dubious therapies from being accepted but
also limits many legitimate treatments because of the onerous time/money constraints placed
on the investigators. This is particularly true in the field of nutritional therapy where money
is not readily available unless the payoff is a drug patent for the pharmaceutical companies.
Ironically, many drug companies are, indeed, trying to capitalize on the works of
nutritional pioneers by patenting a slight variant of a readily available nutritional product.
Prescription fish oil, time-released niacin, vitamin B-12/Folate and a recently approved
strontium-hybrid are but a few examples. Fortunately, several of the top nutraceutical
companies are sponsoring clinical trials with their products at major research centers around
the world.
My knowledge of nutritionally based therapies represents a conflation of influences from many
great teachers and innovators. A list of resources is included at the end of this introductory
essay. My early teachers were Drs. George Goodheart Jr. and Walter Schmitt, who, along
1
with Harry Eidenier Jr. PhD, introduced me to the late and great genius, Royal Lee, DDS (the
founder of Standard Process Laboratories. To this day, Dr. Lee’s work offers endless clinical
pearls for effective patient care. Another huge leap of knowledge occurred studying the works
of Jeffrey Bland, PhD. His seminars and publications are masterpieces that weave physiology,
nutritional biochemistry, and clinical medicine into a vibrant working model. Many physicians
have been transformed by courses offered by the Institute for Functional Medicine that teaches
much of Dr. Bland’s life work. At the same time, Jonathan Wright, M.D. and Alan Gaby, M.D.
were writing books and offering week-long courses to physicians. Their courses included
applied nutritional therapies for almost every medical sub-specialty.
After attending their course at the Omega Institute in 1988, I became convinced that
medical nutrition was destined to become an integral part of mainstream medicine. Melvyn
Werbach, M.D from UCLA came along with his wonderful Third Line Press publications
that documented the use of dietary, nutritional, and herbal interventions for nearly every
medical condition. Finally, Kirk Hamilton P.A. offered comprehensive reporting on research
in the field of medical nutrition with his Clinical Pearls services. My apologies to all the
many other great contributors, leaders, and pioneers whose names have not been included
in this brief presentation. This workshop pertains to the integration of nutritional medicine
and manual medicine with acupuncture. As medical acupuncturists we appreciate those
interventions that enhance a healthy physiology and homeostasis. Current theories about
acupuncture propose mechanisms that involve cellular molecular biology in its varied forms
including: neurotransmitters, cellular messengers, immune cells and modulators, endogenous
opioids and cannabinoids, and numerous other components of immunology, neurology, and
metabolism. Nutritional medicine shares many similar characteristics. It seems reasonable to
postulate that acupuncture interventions and nutritional interventions are capable of achieving
similar effects under certain circumstances and an enhanced synergistic result in yet others.
Often a pattern diagnosis in Chinese Medicine such as: Damp Heat in the Lower Jiao
may represent in Western physiologic terms: intestinal dysbiosis involving an imbalanced
microbial population in the bowel with overgrowth of candida albicans, the presence of
parasites, and a deficiency of normal probiotic flora resulting in non-specific colitis or irritable
bowel syndrome. An acupuncturist may choose to treat specific points that influence Damp
Heat in the meridians: Spleen/Stomach, Large Intestine, Liver and Gall Bladder. Herbal
formulas might be employed as well to resolve this issue. A functional medicine practitioner
may order sophisticated stool studies, blood tests, and other tests before implementing a
focused nutraceutical/pharmaceutical plan to resolve the abnormalities that appear in these
investigations. Probiotics, prebiotics, antifungals, antimicrobials and nutrients that help heal
and restore normal mucosal integrity may be utilized. Following treatment there will be a
noticeable change in pulse and tongue findings from a Chinese Medicine standpoint in addition
to the obvious clinical improvements. The question frequently arises as to whether or not
acupuncture is necessary or sufficient to resolve these types of clinical disorders. During my
internship year in medical school, I was completely cured by one acupuncture treatment for a
refractory case of ulcerative proctitis that was confirmed by tissue biopsy and unresponsive to
steroids. My physician friend, just back from China, diagnosed a severe Damp Heat invasion of
my Lower Jiao by history, tongue and pulse diagnosis. This ”acupuncture healing” profoundly
affected my life and viewpoint about illness and treatment. Nutritional modalities were not
involved nor were manual treatments.
2
In my experience, acupuncture enhances the therapeutic effects of other modalities such as
manual medicine or nutritional/pharmaceutical interventions. As physicians we appreciate
the seriousness of pneumonia and will often prescribe an appropriate antibiotic. As medical
acupuncturists, we would want to treat the Lung meridian and any additional corresponding
meridian disturbances that were present during the illness and after the pneumonia
had resolved. Furthermore, as healers we would seek out the inherent weaknesses or
vulnerabilities that allowed our patient to acquire pneumonia in the first place. Acupuncture,
nutritional medicine, and manual medicine can be pro-active and preventive in addition to
being treatment responses for medical conditions. They are interventions that promote healing
and homeostasis in addition to attacking pathology and dysfunction.
As an integrative medicine physician, I am frequently treating patients with multiple
interventions simultaneously. It is not unusual for these patients to receive nutritional/herbal
therapies, dietary manipulations, manual therapies, and acupuncture in their total treatment
plans. Identifying the specific curative factor or factors is therefore rather difficult. Each
therapeutic input is intended to address or resolve specific aspects of the troubling condition.
Some refer to the “combination- lock theory “ of healing wherein all the numbers (factors) must
be known and the specific sequence is needed to unlock the lock (heal the condition). A brief
example might be useful here. Suppose the patient has chronic asthma as their chief complaint
and is currently not facing an acute life-threatening crisis. In addition to, or as an alternative
to the typically prescribed medications such as Albuterol, Flovent, Singulair, Zyrtec , etc. one
could prescribe a food elimination diet, nutritional supplements such as: vitamin B-12, vitamin
C, magnesium, n-acetylcysteine, and quercitin to name just a few. Acupuncture needles
could be administered based on the specific etiology imbalances discovered during pulse,
tongue, and history diagnostics. Herbal formulas could be added to support and enhance
the acupuncture effect. Manual medicine techniques could be utilized to remove mechanical
restrictions in the diaphragm, cranium and axial skeleton. Lymphatic drainage and respiratorycirculatory techniques could be used as well. Mind-body therapies could be taught to reduce
“stress” and control triggers from a mental-emotional origin.
We can take advantage of the many readily available diagnostic tests for evaluating :
nutritional deficiencies,toxicities, hormonal and metabolic disorders, food/chemical allergies
and sensitivities, and bowel flora disturbances. Numerous studies have pointed out that
nutritional deficiencies are common and often go unrecognized in our elderly population. As
our “life energies” or “Jing” wanes with age there are often corresponding deficiencies seen
with nutrients and hormones that if treated can markedly improve quality of life parameters.
I hope you will find useful, information in this presentation that can benefit your patients, your
families and yourselves. Applied nutritional therapy is wonderfully synergistic with medical
acupuncture. While you treat a Liver problem from an acupuncture perspective with needles,
you can simultaneously identify specific dietary and nutraceutical interventions by history,
examination, and diagnostic testing. One can also treat the liver organ itself with viscreal
manipulation.

TRAUMA : AN INTEGRATIVE MODEL FOR DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT
internally causing a tissue reaction. Pain is the resultant which has varying degrees of intensity
and effective interpretation with numerous avenues of transmission.” This lecture introduces a
variety of treatment principles and modalities for patients who have suffered trauma in their
past and are unable to move forward in their recovery. This presentation will not address the
management of serious acute trauma that requires emergency interventions or acute hospital
care. Rather, we will discuss approaches that can be utilized after the patient is medically
stable but is “stuck” and unhappy with their current state of recovery. We often encounter
these patients who have been told: “You’ll have to learn to live with it” (for the remainder of
their lives). Be it chronic pain, loss of function, loss of motion, depression, or other sequelae to
by traditional
mainstream medicine. As acupuncturists we are quite familiar with these truths and most of
us have already helped numerous patients with needles, moxa, and/or herbs. This session is
meant to add to that growing list of possible complementary and alternative approaches for
healing past trauma.

As an osteopathic physician I have been greatly influenced by my teachers, mentors, and the
past masters of my profession. To better understand the osteopathic philosophy and treatment
approaches to trauma, I can highly recommend the writings and methods of: Andrew Taylor
Still M.D./D.O., Rollin Becker D.O., Robert Fulford D.O., William Johnston D.O., Viola Frymann
D.O, Myron Beal D.O., William Sutherland D.O., Fred Mitchell Jr. D.O., Lawrence Jones D.O.,
Anne Wales D.O., Irwin Korr Ph.D., Philip Greenman D.O., Robert Ward D.O., Anthony Chila
D.O., Edward Stiles D.O., John Upledger D.O. and Jean-Pierre Barral D.O. This is a partial
list but certainly representative of the rich and prolific tradition of osteopathic healers and
educators.
My first mentor, George Goodheart Jr., D.C., developed a unique system of diagnosis and
treatment using manual muscle testing. His system, Applied Kinesiology, has been in a state
of continual evolution for over 60 years. A central theme runs through his work known as
the “Triad of Health”. This concept proposes that there is a continuous interaction between
structure, chemistry, and emotional/energetic facets. When a patient presents with posttraumatic pain, there will undoubtedly be multiple somatic dysfunctions present. A careful
history and thorough examination usually reveals biochemical and emotional- energetic
problems as well. Food allergies, chemical sensitivities, toxicities, nutritional deficiencies,
endocrine disturbances and subtle disorders of metabolism such as mitochondrial dysfunction
are more common than one might imagine. “Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder” with its myriad
of manifestations: Depression, Anxiety, OCD, ADHD, Paranoia, Phobias, Insomnia, Somatic
Disorders, and Sexual Dysfunction, (just to name a few) is also quite common.
Perhaps a case example might illustrate the application of this “Triad of Health” paradigm. A 45
year old white female has had three years of pain in the cervical, mid-thoracic and lower back
regions following a whiplash injury. Additionally, she complains of retro-orbital and temporal
headaches, jaw tension with “clicking and popping,” insomnia, fatigue, depression, anxiety,
irritable bowel syndrome, irregular periods, right carpal tunnel syndrome, left patella pain,
and “foggy, dull thinking.” All of these complaints began after the accident. She was stopped
at a red light and was rear-ended at approximately 35 mph. She hit her head on the driver’s
window, hit her knee cap into the dashboard, and felt extreme strain to her wrist during the
accident. A month after the accident she developed a thyroid nodule with goiter and became
hyperthyroid requiring Tapazole medication. Patients with these scenarios are often treated
as if their entire whiplash injury is strictly limited to their musculoskeletal system. Medications,
injections, physical therapy, chiropractic, massage and other musculoskeletal modalities are
often employed. The lucky patients recover with those interventions alone. Some are not so
lucky.
5
This patient requires deeper attention to the specific disruptions of her structure, chemistry,
and energetic psychology. Osteopathic examination reveals: cranial somatic dysfunctions
involving a petro-jugular dislocation, fronto-sphenoid compression, lateral sphenoid strain,
lowered cranial rhythmic impulse and impairment of venous sinus drainage. Physical
examination reveals TMJ dysfunction which is supported by an MRI, documenting a dislocated/
torn disc and capsule allowing for complete dislocation of the TMJ disc during opening and
closing. Cervical MRI demonstrates atrophy of the rectus capitis superior minor muscle with
resultant instability of the occipito-atlantal joint. Neural and myofascial tension is noted from
the anterior cervical regions down the right arm into the wrist and hand. The diaphragmatic
breathing pattern is markedly dysfunctional with dyskinesis of the thoracic, pelvic, and cranial
diaphragms. Hypermobility of the cervical and thoracic ligaments is noted at multiple levels.
The sacrum and coccyx are abnormally tight and intra-osseously compressed with a backward
sacral torsion. A right pelvic shear is evidenced by the asymetrical positions of the ischial
tuberosities. “Listening” reveals a restricted and mildly ptosed left kidney. The liver’s mobility
and motility are also restricted.
The treatment of the above structural somatic dysfunctions would require skilled interventions
with cranial manipulation, visceral manipulation, prolotherapy, neuro-fascial release, myofascial
release, and temporomandibular joint treatment from a dentist familiar with cranial- mandibular
mechanics (severe TMJ pathology may require surgery). Many of these patients benefit
from the intelligent use of nutraceutical products including: vitamins, minerals, trace minerals,
enzymes, amino acids, anti-oxidants, and herbs. Magnesium, zinc, vitamin C, proline, and a
host of other nutrients are necessary for connective tissue integrity. Chronic inflammation can
be treated with an anti-inflammatory diet (Mediterranean diet minus their food sensitivities)
along with therapeutic levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, boswellia serrata, tumeric, bromelain,
ginger, garlic, devil’s claw, MSM, CoQ10, and alpha lipoic acid. Several companies offer intracellular nutrient testing to specifically identify deficiencies.
The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis is universally stressed and often dysfunctional posttraumatically. Patients need a thorough examination of their endocrine system to determine the
extent of abnormal hormonal involvement. The most common finding is adrenal dysfunction:
either hyperactivity or exhaustion. Continuous stress on the adrenal system leads to fatigue,
depression, idiopathic rashes, paradoxical wakefulness at night, sugar and stimulant cravings,
gastrointestinal irritation, weakened ligaments, dilated pupils, orthostatic hypotension,
susceptibility to infections, and marked susceptibility to joint injuries. B- complex vitamins,
vitamin C, minerals, ginseng, gotu kola, saspirilla, rehmannia, adrenal glandular products, and
selective Chinese herbal formulas can help restore energetic and metabolic balance to the
gland. Occasionally, the patient will require physiologic doses of Cortisone (Cortef). Thyroid
dysfunctions are very common and often present after severe stress or trauma particularly
to the head and neck. In general, any gland may exhibit post-traumatic dysfunction. The
pancreas may become
hypo-functioning on an endocrine or exocrine basis. Menstrual irregularity may follow head or
back injury. Each case is unique and needs to be evaluated for possible deleterious sequelae..
Ideally, successful manipulation of “ key lesions”, dietary adjustments, individualized nutritional
and herbal therapies and acupuncture can provide considerable relief and improvement to
their former condition.
6
One can not underestimate the importance of also treating the mental-emotional, psychic,
etheric, and spiritual dimensions of trauma. As triune beings we resonate in accordance to
the health and balance of our mind-body-spirit. Treating the subtler energy fields can at times
produce the greatest changes in our patients. Many patients are stuck in their fixed attitude,
posture, and energy resonance. EMDR, Bach Flower Remedies, Homeopathy, Hypnosis,
Reiki, Hands of Light, Chinese Medicine, and other modalities on “The List” work with those
dimensions that are rarely acknowledged by conventional medical treatments. Dr. Fulford said
that the goal of the healer is to help the patient find their destiny. To put the patient in touch
with what their ultimate purpose was for being on this earth in this lifetime. Once a patient is
doing what they were meant to do, everything else begins to fall in place. Sometimes trauma is
a gift that leads to an awareness of what is important and what needs to be done.
Trauma can occur in “ one fell swoop” or as the “straw that breaks the camel’s back.”
Repetition stress is commonplace and what I see in my practice is a body finally running
out of adaptations. We see this often in children today playing sports or having a series of
injuries where each one leads to an adaptive response that eventually can’t compensate. Too
often, parents are told that their child athlete is fine and will ”get over it” because he’s just a
kid. Soccer trauma, gymnastics injuries, and all the other trauma prone sports are creating a
nation of “walking wounded child-athletes“ who are only given ice and ibuprofen for their aches
and pains. Very little attention is paid to the specific, discrete nature of their injuries that can
be treated by competent manual medicine practitioners and/or acupuncturists. A child might
present with headaches or neck pain that is the result of untreated ankle or lower back strains
from past injuries. The athlete will keep compensating for their previous injury with altered
posture and motion mechanics which will ultimately take them down a path of new injuries.
Gaining the skills to diagnose and treat somatic dysfunctions as they occur in the child or adult
proves rewarding to the patient and doctor alike. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of
cure” and treating and resolving trauma in a timely fashion can restore function and prevent a
lot of unnecessary pain and suffering down the road.
Trauma: An Osteopathic Approach authored by Jean-Pierre Barral D.O. and Alain Croiber D.O.
is an outstanding text for exploring the varied depths and multi-dimensional consequences
of trauma. “Nothing is forgotten”, ”Nothing is isolated”, “Everything accumulates”, “Everything
is recorded”, summarizes several critical concepts that are at the foundation of traditional
osteopathic thought. All structures and tissues do not respond identically to the same given
traumatic forces. The pre-existing state of the person’s mind/body/spirit influences the outcome
of any traumatic event. Barral and Crobier describe in great detail the biomechanics and
physics of trauma. Each system of the body is included in their analysis. Novel diagnosis
and treatment procedures are presented for treating: cranial, dural, visceral, neural, vascular,
and osteoarticular injuries. (Several of these modalities are presented in the powerpoint
presentation).
Foundations for Integrative Musculoskeletal Medicine: An East-West Approach authored
by Alon Marcus D.O.M., L.Ac., D.A.A.P.M. is certainly one of the most comprehensive texts
I’ve ever read regarding the musculoskeletal system. Dr. Marcus has done an amazing job of
merging orthopaedic, neurological, and osteopathic principles of diagnosis and treatment with
that of Chinese Medicine; both acupuncture and herbal medicine. A wonderful reference text
for almost any clinical presentation in musculoskeletal medicine.

Acute Low Back Pain in a NCAA Division I Basketball Player
Resolves with One Acupuncture Treatment and Osteopathic Manipulation
Jay Sandweiss D.O., C-NMM/OMM, F.A.A.M.A.
Abstract
Background: Lumbo-sacral and/or sacroiliac sprain/strains are common afflictions
affecting competitive basketball players.1 Star athletes and their coaching staff seek
fast effective treatment modalities for their injuries to facilitate a full and speedy
return to the game.
Objective: This case demonstrates an immediate resolution of low back pain in a
college basketball player utilizing acupuncture and osteopathic manipulation in one
treatment.
Intervention: The patient was treated once with acupuncture and osteopathic
manipulation the day of a Big Ten basketball game. One treatment resolved his
painful movement, motion loss, antalgic body posture and right-sided lumbago.
Patient was given samples of Traumeel ointment (homeopathic) to apply later that
day. The player refused using any pharmacological medications (including
Ibuprofen) as he was philosophically opposed to Western allopathic drugs.

INTRODUCTION
Main Outcome Measure: Resolution of disabling pain, painful movement,
motion restriction, antalgic posture, right-sided low back pain.
Results: Resolution of all symptoms with one treatment of medical acupuncture
combined with osteopathic manipulation. The patient played six hours post
treatment in a NCAA Division I basketball game without evidence of symptoms.
In fact, his performance was one of his best of the season.
Case Report:
This author received a midday contact from a Division I basketball
staff member requesting immediate treatment for an acutely injured
player. Schedules were adjusted and the player was seen in my
office shortly thereafter for acute right–sided low back pain. The
pain had started the previous day and now made him unable to
stand upright, have difficulty rising from a chair, and have spasms in
the right sacroiliac, right gluteal/buttock and right lumbo-sacral
areas. He was supposed to play in the starting line-up that same
evening six hours later. The patient could not recall the exact
etiology of the injury, but had fallen several times while leaping for a
ball or from being fouled during a play. The training staff had
attempted to stretch him out and provided ice and modalities that
had not resolved this issue. X-ray studies taken earlier that day of
his lumbar, sacral, and sacroiliac regions were negative for
pathology.
Conclusions: This case demonstrates that an acutely symptomatic injured
athlete can be successfully treated with a single treatment of acupuncture and
osteopathic manipulation and return to full capacity that same day. Certainly this
particular situation does not reflect all soft tissue conditions but it serves to
respect the potential for immediate resolution of injury and inactivity.
Objective physical findings:
22-year-old African-American male with a postural list to the right, walking with
apprehension when loading weight to the right hip. Decreased extension of
lumbar spine and sacrum. Difficulty rising from a chair. Marked tension and
trigger points present in right gluteus medius/minimus, piriformis, quadratus
lumborum, and psoas muscles.
Patient received osteopathic manipulation to the above
somatic dysfunctions using Muscle Energy Technique, High
Velocity Low Amplitude Thrust and Myofascial Release. 2,3
The acupuncture treatment combined Neuro-Anatomical
principles with Tendinomuscular meridian and Curious
meridian activation.
Positive right standing and seated flexion screening tests for PSIS motion
asymmetry. Right hip crest inferior while standing. Upslipped right innominate.
Right on left sacral torsion. L3-FRSR, L5- FRSR.
Weakness of right hip abductors 4-/5. Mild right innominate rotation. C2-FRSL,
C3-FRSR.

Discussion:
Acute low back pain arising from sprain and /or strain of soft tissues is a common presentation
from highly competitive athletes. This patient received care using both osteopathic
manipulation and electrical acupuncture during the same treatment session.4 The patient
received acupuncture using electrical stimulation at a frequency of 25 Hz. This frequency has
been highly effective for treating pain and muscle weakness due to athletic injury in this author’s
experience.5 Both forms of treatment have shown efficacy in treating acute low back pain.6,7,8
The proposed mechanisms of action for both interventions involve the activation of several
sites in the central and autonomic nervous system as well as receptors in the peripheral
nervous system. The release of peptides, neurotransmitters and endogenous opioids is well
studied. 9,10,11 Neuro-imaging studies with fMRI, performed by Vitaly Napadow PhD et al,
suggest that neuroplasticity changes occur in the brain with acupuncture treatment.12 This
suggests yet another neuromodulatory effect distinct from the previously noted mechanisms.
At the AAMA 26th Symposium, Narda Robinson, D.O., D.V.M. reviewed the theory of
acupuncture treatments inducing changes in the cytoarchitecture of fibroblasts and the
metabolism of connective tissue components. She went on to describe the effects of
acupuncture on the fascia “within and between cells in the extracellular matrix” affecting multiple
functions such as: nutrient transfer, nerve signal transduction, regulation of intercellular
communication, and the transmission of mechanical stresses on the fibroblast cytoskeleton. Her
lecture further emphasized the similar effects achieved from acupuncture, Yoga, and
massage(manipulation) to alter fibroblast activity and “change stiffness and viscosity of
connective tissue within minutes”. Finally, Dr. Robinson discussed the concept of “Fascial
Acupuncture” that sees the acupuncture channels as fascial planes.13 As fascia envelops all
structures in the body, one can postulate the possibility of acupuncture stimulation modulating
physiology through this vast intricate network of fascia as described by Finando et al.14
Results:
During his acupuncture treatment the patient
frequently described a relaxing euphoric feeling that
made his muscles and pain release. After standing up
from the acupuncture treatment his posture was erect
and symmetrical. All pain with motion was gone. Rising
from a chair and walking were painless. Six hours later
the patient played outstanding basketball without any
evidence of pain or gait disturbance. This author had
the pleasure of attending that game.
Two Weeks of Recalcitrant Cervical Pain, Weakness, and Restricted Motion in
an Olympic Wrestler, Successfully Treated with Acupuncture and Osteopathic
Manipulation
Conclusion:
Acute soft tissue sport injuries are commonly treated with the PRICE formula
(Protect, Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate) or some variation of that theme.15 Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, massage, and physical therapy
modalities are frequently used by athletic departments when treating their
injured athletes.16 Severe injuries may require surgery, injections, bracing or a
prolonged period of rest.
This particular case demonstrates the effectiveness of a single treatment
utilizing medical acupuncture and osteopathic manipulation to quickly and
effectively resolve pain, weakness, spasm and motion restriction with
asymmetry in an acutely injured basketball player.
Clearly not all athletic injuries can be expected to respond immediately to a
single treatment. However, this case shows the potential for impressive results
to occur with only one treatment in an acute setting. Perhaps more professional
and college teams will consider the benefits of adding this treatment approach
to their current armamentarium.

Abstract
Background: Cervical sprain/strain is a common condition afflicting athletes
participating in aggressive contact sports.1 Competitive athletes often seek immediate
results that allow for a rapid return to full activity and high performance levels.
Objective: This case demonstrates a swift resolution of cervical pain, weakness, and
restricted motion in an Olympic wrestler utilizing acupuncture and osteopathic
manipulation.
Intervention: The patient was treated with acupuncture and osteopathic manipulation
four times over a course of five days. Eighty percent improvement was achieved
immediately following the initial treatment. Patient was prescribed a nutraceutical
product to use for soft tissue inflammation (See Appendix A).
.
Main Outcome measure: Resolution of pain, weakness, and restricted motion
of cervical spine region.
Results: Total resolution of all symptom parameters was achieved after three
treatments. The fourth acupuncture treatment was given for mind-body focus
only. This patient went to the final U.S.A. Olympic trials two days post treatment
and won his weight division. He represented the U.S.A. at the 2012 Olympic
games in London, England.
Conclusions: This case suggests that acupuncture treatment with osteopathic
manipulative treatment can accelerate soft tissue injury resolution time. Athletes
may be able to return to full activity levels sooner than they would have using
more conservative treatment modalities. Randomized controlled trials are
indicated

Always evaluate the whole patient/whole body for somatic
dysfunctions of the spine, ribs, cranium, pelvis, sacrum and lower

Muscle testing helps identify the source of many problems. It helps to
gauge the success of treatment by testing pre and post muscle
response
Many upper extremity issues come from cervical and upper
thoracic/rib somatic dysfunctions
Yang Meridians run from fingers to face (Large Intestine - Small

You may place paper or tongue depressors between their teeth and see if a specific
change in vertical dimension changes their bite weakness. For example, if a person
weakens when they clench their teeth forcefully, but they no longer weaken when two
tongue depressors are placed between their teeth, then they probably need a bite splint
that will approximate this correction. In other words, send them to a dentist who does
TMJ work.

The most common finding is adrenal
dysfunction: either hyperactivity or
exhaustion. Continuous stress on the
adrenal system leads to fatigue,
depression, idiopathic rashes,
paradoxical wakefulness at night, sugar
and stimulant cravings, gastrointestinal
irritation, weakened ligaments, dialated
pupils, orthostatic hypotension,
susceptibility to infections, and marked
susceptibility to joint injuries.!
The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal
axis is universally stressed and often
dysfunctional post-traumatically.
Patients need a thorough
examination of their endocrine
system to determine the extent of
abnormal hormonal involvement.!
In general, any gland may exhibit posttraumatic dysfunction. The pancreas
may become hypo-functioning on an
endocrine or exocrine basis. Menstrual
irregularity may follow head or back
injury. Each case is unique and needs to
be evaluated for possible deleterious
sequelae.!
B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, minerals,
ginseng, gotu kola, saspirilla, rehmannia,
adrenal glandular products, and
selective Chinese herbal formulas can
help restore energetic and metabolic
balance to the gland. Occasionally, the
patient will require physiologic doses of
Cortisone (Cortef).!
Dr. Fulford said that the goal of the
healer is to help the patient find their
destiny. To put the patient in touch with
what their ultimate purpose was for
being on this earth in this lifetime. Once
a patient is doing what they were meant
to do, everything else begins to fall in
place. Sometimes trauma is a gift that
leads to an awareness of what is
important and what needs to be done.!
Chronic inflammation can be treated
with an anti-inflammatory diet
(Mediterranean diet minus their food
sensitivities) along with therapeutic
levels of Omega-3 fatty acids,
boswellia serrata, tumeric, bromelain,
ginger, garlic, devil’s claw, MSM,
CoQ10, and alpha lipoic acid.!

Patients are coming to you for relief from
Gastrointestinal health is the gateway
to good health or disease
•! Gastritis
•! Peptic Ulcer Disease
•! Diverticulosis
•! IBD (Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's Disease)
•! “Functional Disorders”: chronic diarrhea,
constipation, bloating, flatulence (symptoms
of IBS), nutrient malabsorption and GERD
Do You Have The Answers?
•! 70% of humans have GI symptoms or disease
•! Most sensitive organ where a wide range of insults
can lead to dysfunction
•! GI dysfunction leads to diverse clinical
manifestations
•! Normalization of gut function results in improved
clinical outcomes across many diverse diseases
There’s more…
•! Research has shown associations between
compromised GI function and conditions as varied as
rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, eczema and certain
neurological conditions.
•! GI dysfunction can underlie many apparently unrelated
conditions with symptoms not localized in the GI tract.
•! It’s no wonder so many healthcare professionals are
“treating the gut” more often in their patients.

MYCELIZED A: Vitamin A - (mixed carotenoids and
palmitate) 5,000-10,000 I.U. (short term for 7-10 days)
then 2,000-3,000 I.U. as maintenance
 Each person has a specific threshold after which the liver
becomes unable to detoxify at a rate capable of preventing
symptoms. !
 Phase 1 & Phase 2 pathways are critical for removal of
toxins, and many nutrients are dependant for each
detoxification pathway.!
Lipotropics- Choline Bitartrate USP – 500 mg daily,
Inositol, Taurine, L-Methionine, Artchoke Leaf, Chen Pi,
Betaine HCL, Vit. C, B6, Folate, B12, Mag
 Detoxification problems can be found in either one or both
pathways.!
Iodine (Potassium Iodide USP as kelp) - 250-1,000 mcg
daily (watch thyroid function)
 A major issue for liver detoxification is maintaining
Glutathione levels.!

Patients with symptoms of toxicity may
have compromised detoxification pathways
Toxins from the environment and diet may
lead to health challenges in your patients
•! Excessive toxic load and poor expression of clearance
enzymes and transport proteins may lead to a buildup of toxins
in the body
•! Continuous exposure to dietary and environmental
toxins may lead to an impairment in the ability of
patients to metabolize and clear damage causing
compounds from their body

Turmeric/Curcumin
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) roots have long been
used as both a food ingredient (spice, coloring
agent) and medicinal agent in East Asia. This
plant, related to ginger, contains the potent antiinflammatory agent, curcumin, Curcumin is
known to be a potent inhibitor of NF-kB, COX-2,
LOX as well as many other enzymes within the
inflammatory pathway (many regulated through
NF-kB). Curcumin also reduces other
inflammatory mediators such as IL-6, LL-1ß,
MCP-1 and metalloproteinases in animal models.!
279
Reports have confirmed that oral doses of
curcumin inhibit the production of COX-2,
limiting the formation of PGE2, as well as
reducing pro-inflammatory mediators from
LOX in animals and humans.!
Curcumin is considered to be extremely safe
and no toxicity is noted even at high doses.!
