Nerve Entrapment Syndromes and The Binding Regions of TCM
Matt Callison will return to New Zealand in 2024 to present his successful workshop on nerve entrapment syndromes. He delivered this workshop in Melbourne in 2022.
What will this workshop cover?
In this 2 day workshop, we will discuss anatomical regions that predispose spinal and peripheral nerves toward compression. Often from a narrowed tunnel or due to a thickening of an overlying myofascial structure, nerve compression can decrease the nerve’s potential to nourish the innervated tissue. Traditionally, as discussed in Chapter 13 of the Ling Shu, “binding regions” are areas in the sinew channels that are susceptible to stagnation of qi and blood. In other words, nerve compression can affect the axoplasmic flow and nerve conduction, in which nerve entrapment sites can act as silent contributors to injury.
For the TCM practitioner, when treating a musculoskeletal pain, understanding where a proximal nerve compression site is located that is decreasing the healing potential, is important for assessment and successful treatment to gain positive clinical outcomes.
We will assess and treat many different nerve entrapment sites that can affect pain patterns in the head, neck and upper extremity. We will cover:
- Lower cervical spinal nerve compression
- Cervicogenic headache pain generators (greater occipital and 3rd occipital nerve compression) and Thoracic outlet syndrome
- Various nerve entrapment sites affecting the musculocutaneous, ulnar, median and radial nerves can directly affect pain and dysfunction of many common upper extremity injuries.
