Lower Extremity / Gait Module

Part of the Nanopuncture Seminar Series

About this Module

In this module, you will learn how to properly categorize different forms of gait disorders from a neurological movement perspective. Dr. Shiu will teach participants how to distinguish changes in gait due to orthopedic injury versus stroke injury versus Parkinson’s disease and more. Students will learn how to treat and restore function to the lower extremities, including how to properly reset the lumbosacral plexus and the branches of the nervous system in the lower extremities.

The treatments learned in this module are applicable for:

  • Foot drop
  • Herniated discs
  • Parkinson’s shuffling gait
  • Slap gait
  • Pelvic floor disorders
  • Compartment syndromes
  • Meniscal injuries
  • Patellofemoral disorder
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Different forms of neuropathy

In this continuation of the Foundations module, Dr. Shiu will guide you through assessing gait patterns with guest patients and using corrective gait protocols. He will teach advanced needle methods, including how to needle the intricate UB40 Wei-Zhong point, a technique pioneered by his mentor Dr. Shi Xue Min. Dr. Shiu and an associate will work with students hands-on to ensure that the proper techniques are being used.

Participants will also learn which herbal formulas and liniments Dr. Shiu recommends for gait injuries including several external herbal medicine approaches to treat meniscus tears, sprained ankles, and lower-extremity neuropathies.

Dr. Shiu will also show students how to correct gait through movement exercises based on Taiji and Qigong.

The voice is one of the main tools that enable us to communicate clearly, and effectively, and to represent our truest selves.

The Nanopuncture System accelerates concussion recovery and treats post-concussion symptoms using techniques that calm the nervous system, reduce tachycardia, increase focus, and mitigate hypersensitivity to light and other dysautonomia symptoms.

The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is like a computer in our bodies that keeps many of our systems running in the “background,” including digestion, perspiration, breathing, swallowing, blood pressure, heart rate, and more.

The skills learned in this module can also be applied to treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis and golfer's elbow, hand neuropathy, bicipital tendonitis, post-surgical shoulder and hand issues, and more.

The Gut-Brain Axis module is the most recent addition to the Nanopuncture seminar series. In this course, participants will learn the relationship of the microbiome to the brain.

In the Sports and Orthopedic module, Dr. Shiu will teach participants how to apply nerve plexus resetting techniques to treat common sports and orthopedic injuries.

In this seminar, Dr. Shiu will teach the basics of photobiomodulation (PBM), qEEG, and laser therapy and how to incorporate these technologies in a clinical session.
