The Musculoskeletal System for Herbalists - 2020, Herbal Medics Academy, Thursday, 20. August 2020

This is an online course. You can take this anywhere you have an internet connection. You do not have to be present in our area to take the course! 
The primary goal of this module is to understand the body's musculoskeletal system through the eyes of the herbalist.
This 4-week, online course includes two live classes (which are recorded and then accessible through download as well) per week.  During the four weeks we will explore in depth the physiology (and some anatomy) of the musculoskeletal system.
Injury, illness and healing in the body can be more fully understood by investigating the tissue affected. This includes understanding soft tissue and skeletal response to injury, infection and chronic illness.  What types of tissue, blood supply and cellular regrowth/recovery do we see when working our way from the innermost section of a bone, to the tissue surrounding the bone superficially to connective tissue and muscle? What are some of the most important anatomical landmarks and locations that we should be aware of in responding to musculoskeletal injury and illness?  What other organ and physiological systems are crucial to understand in their support of the musculoskeletal system as it heals?
Topics that will be explored and taught in this course include:

Understanding musculoskeletal inflammation – local and systemic
Musculoskeletal stress: Load vs. recovery
Crucial stress points – joints and joint physiology
Herbal delivery systems: Getting the herb to the tissue
Sports medicine concepts for the herbalist
Understanding infection in musculoskeletal tissue
Chronic musculoskeletal diseases
Chronic musculoskeletal injuries
Musculoskeletal pain management
Materia medica (i.e. herbs) and their usage for musculoskeletal pathologies

Live webinars take place twice a week. Handouts, videos of webinars (for those who can’t make a class during its live presentation), Q & A forum and a final quiz will all be accessible through online classroom.
