Acupuncture treatment of varicose veins

varicose veins

Varicose veins of lower extremity venous reflux disease belongs. Since the force of gravity, lower limb blood flow occurs thy direction back in the opposite direction, causing blood stasis venous system, resulting in lower extremity veins tortuous expansion, coupled with the venous valvular insufficiency, lower limb appear worm-like projections. Varicose veins, mainly in the elderly, modern research shows that factors in addition to long-term standing, sitting about varicose veins and long, there is a certain relationship with estrogen. And different from men, women varicose veins occur mostly in urban office crowd.
Varicose veins incidence rate of 20% to 40%. The etiology and pathogenesis has not yet been fully elucidated. Vein wall strength is weak, venous insufficiency, venous hypertension are important factors in the formation of pathological. But these pathological changes, what is the cause or the consequence of varicose veins, the medical profession is currently no consensus. Heavy manual labor, long-term or long-term work sitting knees workers, repeated muscle contractions or pressure, blood run blocked, local muscle ischemia and hypoxia, over time, will produce myofascial trigger point. Early on, in order compensatory “second heart” function, early gastrocnemius muscle fibers will be thicker, showing legs thicker, the patient will feel the calf soreness, heaviness, pain or knee discomfort. Secondly, the intramuscular intravenous increased pressure will cause superficial capillary vein dilation. Thus, it is easy to be found in lower extremity veins exposed. Over time, the muscle fibers decreased flexibility, muscle harden, causing an overall decline in the gastrocnemius muscle contraction. Thicker muscles harden further continued oppression of the local arterial pressure leading to ischemia, can cause cramps; intravenous further increase the pressure, can cause thick legs thicker veins and bending. Thus, the formation of a significant varicose veins. Patients may also have near the ankle, lower leg swelling, eczema or itching, and even ulcers.
Clinical manifestations: patients with varicose veins after standing a little longer, limb soreness, numbness, fatigue, heaviness, superficial veins bulge, tortuous expansion, even curled into a group, significantly lower leg and ankle and foot. Longer duration, severe varicose veins complicated by thrombosis of superficial phlebitis, local pain. Tenderness skin, varicose veins showing hard streak. Treads district nutrition skin changes, skin atrophy, scaling, color felt, itching and even eczema and ulcers (commonly known as the old rotten legs). Such as ulcers unhealed for many years, there may be malignant, and even cause systemic disease. Venous thrombus and calcified stones after; varicose ulcer due to erosion or trauma can cause rupture, acute life-threatening bleeding.
For the treatment of this disease, modern medicine mainly uses a variety of surgical therapy. However, the recurrence rate of surgery, costs expensive. In this regard, TCM believes that this disease is mainly caused by blood movement is not smooth, the use of internal and external treatment combination of methods, the use of acupuncture and moxibustion, with traditional Chinese medicine, and some complementary therapies such as massage, cupping, qi and blood circulation as the main principle of treatment for mild to moderate varicose veins, there are significant effect. Acupuncture can be a partial release muscle tension, relieve pressure on the blood vessels, associated myofascial trigger point inactivation can improve muscle contraction, enhance and gradually restore its “second heart” function. With traditional Chinese medicine, can improve local blood circulation, promote metabolism, nutrient supply to protect local muscle and skin, therefore, can eliminate pain, swelling and cramps, skin pigmentation so slowly returning to normal. For patients with mild varicose veins, acupuncture treatment has a considerable advantage.
Chinese medicine believes that the disease because of congenital lack of blood, tendons weak, long walks, long-standing, overwork, further damage tendons, resulting in substandard meridians, blood running sluggish, congestion block context, dilation of blood vessels, falling staggered coiled together. The shape is similar to the course of time the tumor. There are also tired after walking in the water, the rain wet invasion, suffered cold, causing varicose tendons.
Acupuncture treatment: Take limb varicose veins of the oppression of the meridian, the implementation of acupuncture treatment, patients generally varicose veins more oppression spleen and kidney, acupuncture acupoints:  taixi, sanyinjiao,zhubin,yingu,xuehai,chengshan . Fire needle therapy: After topical varicose veins protruding fire needle prick, local cupping, can be removed if there is congestion.

Acupuncture treatment of cervical spondylosis

cervical spondylosis

Cervical disease, also known as cervical syndrome, is a common multiple of the slow progress of the degenerative bone disease, more common in the elderly, are getting younger and younger age of onset. Cervical syndrome, is a degenerative disease of pathological changes, mainly due to cervical chronic fatigue, among osteoarthritis, cone or disc prolapse, ligament thickening, resulting in cervical spinal cord, nerve roots or arterial pressure, there was a series dysfunction syndrome. Symptoms are dizziness, numbness in the hand, neck pain, insomnia, sweating, tolls, back numb, blurred vision, palpitation, suffocation. Neck pain and discomfort. Cause people cause prolonged bow work-related neck muscles, ligaments, fascia and long-term state of tension, resulting in inflammation, edema. Produced metabolites directly stimulate the adjacent nerves and blood vessels. Dizziness, numbness in the hand symptoms. Sterile local tissue inflammation, resulting in soft tissue near the spasm, causing ischemia and hypoxia. The adjacent tissue, fascia produce adhesions, oppression nerves and blood vessels

When a soft tissue injury to a certain extent, the body of calcium will gather here, over time, the formation of muscles and ligaments calcification, hyperplasia. Stimulate proliferation of the surrounding soft tissue inflammation, increased soft tissue lesions, nodules formed. Limit the scope of activities of muscle and soft tissue. Traction due to pain when human activities. Clinical manifestations of cervical syndrome: when entrapment occurs when the vertebral artery. Blood obstacles.

Acupuncture treatment of lumbar disc herniation

lumbar disc herniation

Lumbar disc herniation is very common in clinical practice. It is a major cause of back pain. Serious damage to human health. Many people have lost their ability to work. Generally due to lumbar disc degeneration caused by the disc. The trauma is an important cause of morbidity. Normal disc flexible, elastic and toughness. But with age, the intervertebral disc degeneration. Lumbar intervertebral disc elasticity and resistance to load capacity decline. Lumbar disc repeatedly subjected to compression, flexion, torsion loads. Uneven force lumbar intervertebral disc, lumbar intervertebral disc internal matter pushed to the side, appear prominent. Even annulus rupture. So that the spinal nerves oppression produce symptoms. L4-L5 lumbar disc herniation is common. L5-S1, L3-L4 lumbar disc herniation also accounted for a large proportion. Pathogenesis of disc herniation, herniated disc tissue direct nerve root compression, so that local produce or protruding tissue edema, indirectly nerve root. Produce clinical symptoms.
Clinical manifestations. Common symptoms of lumbar disc herniation back pain, radiation to the lower extremities. When L3-L4 lumbar disc herniation, lumbar and thigh anterior pain, numbness. But not more than the knee pain. When L4-L5 lumbar disc herniation, lumbar pain, posterior leg pain, numbness. L5-S1 lumbar disc herniation, the back pain, posterior leg pain, numbness, burning sensation accompanied by skin symptoms. When the characteristics of lumbar disc pain, intermittent seizures, sneezing, hard stool, cough and other actions to increase abdominal pressure, increased symptoms. Usually caused by improper turning or bending posture. Induced inadequate preparation, or waist cold when unbalanced force, or motion. Waist activity limitation, before Qu most affected.
Scoliosis patients. This is a patient in order to prevent nerve root irritation, take a protective scoliosis. Severe lumbar disc herniation, associated with lower extremity weakness or paralysis symptoms. Giant disc herniation. Protruding into the spinal canal compression of the cauda equina, the double-leg radiating pain, incontinence. And other symptoms. Most lumbar disc herniation do not need surgery, they can alleviate the disease. It is what causes lumbar disc herniation. I think it is a soft tissue injury caused by lumbar disc around. Because soft tissue injury caused power weakened, or part of the soft tissue irritation spasm. Mechanical balance is broken. Rally in the presence of soft tissue lumbar intervertebral disc shift around. We can not maintain normal lumbar disc around the balance of power.
Lumbar disc protrusion in force at the time of the power imbalance. That is bound to have lumbar disc herniation soft tissue damage. Acupuncture treatment of lumbar disc herniation, we should first find out the correct soft tissue injury. Mainly based on the action of the loins to determine the site of injury. And then the soft tissue injury targeted for treatment. It requires a patient to bend, extension, lateral bending effect.
Left and right rotation operation to be checked. To determine the site of injury.
1. Triangle area between the ribs and lumbar strain. Treatment points to 12 ribs and lumbar junction at the junction node. L1, L2, L3 spinous process nodules.
2. lumbosacral spine and the ilium between the triangle. Treatment sites next to the sacral junction node. Junction node at the edge of the sacrum.
3. The third lumbar transverse area. Treatment sites in the third lumbar vertebra nodules.
4. psoas treatment sites. Treatment points L1, L2, L5, S1 ipsilateral lumbar spinous nodules.
5. iliolumbar ligament treatment sites. Treatment point L4, L5 vertebra spinous process next nodules, iliac crest edge junction memory node.
Acupuncture treatment is to stimulate the meridians, reduce the excitability of nerve endings, promote muscle relaxation, relieve spasms, more stimulating acupoints by strong muscle contractions caused by efforts to promote the site herniation return. Dilation of blood vessels around the lesions change blood circulation, promote local metabolism, increased pain inhibiting substances. Conversion pain substances. , To change the part of lumbar disc herniation. Thus contributing to the recovery ligament, nerve root. Absorbing edema soft tissue. To achieve the purpose of resolution of inflammation.
