NESA Research Seminar Series

New England School of Acupuncture, located at 150 California St, Newton, MA, invites interested student, faculty, and community members to come to a lecture by Helene Langevin, MD, Associate Professor of Neurology, Orthopedics and Rehabilitation at the University of Vermont College of Medicine. She will speak on Monday, April 13 from 2:30-4 PM on “Connective Tissue: Relevance to Chronic Pain & Acupuncture”. Dr Langevin’s research focuses on connective tissue mechanical signal transduction as a mechanism common to acupuncture, manual and movement-based therapies. Her previous studies in humans and animal models have shown that mechanical tissue stimulation during both tissue stretch and acupuncture causes dynamic cellular responses in connective tissue. She is currently investigating how these tissue responses are affected by chronic conditions such as low back pain
