Acupuncture Treatment of Scoliosis

Acupuncture Treatment of Scoliosis

View from the back of a normal spine is straight, if in a pillow midpoint (external occipital carina) to the sacral spine connection, a part of the spine spinal axis deviation from the normal phenomenon, called dorsal column scoliosis. Human spine at birth is bent forward. With the development of sitting, walking and other functions, and gradually formed the cervical and lumbar spine bent forward, thoracic, four physiological sacral spine backward bending bent to maintain complete torso balance, buffer , shock absorption, support the internal organs and many other physiological functions. Spine is not curved side under normal circumstances, if there is any bent, they are all regarded as pathological changes, in addition to scoliosis, kyphosis outer side, often accompanied by spinal rotation and the convex side of the ribs kyphosis deformities, severe cases may also can cause a change of heart and lungs, digestive system and the nervous system, it is more known as scoliosis syndrome. The cause of the development of the cause of scoliosis scoliosis so far is not very clear, because the clinical findings of leg length discrepancy, shoulders injustice (scapula one high and one low) side of the chest collapsed one side of the back ridge (razor back) the one hand side the formation of wrinkles, body side from the spine to the side wall of the elbow ranging appear deformity.
Scoliosis classification
1. Structural scoliosis: scoliosis spine irreversible merger vertebral rotation.
2. Non-structural scoliosis: also known as functional scoliosis or postural scoliosis, the spine is a reversible.
Scoliosis division level:
1. Mild scoliosis: scoliosis person less than 20 degrees. Generally less than 10 degrees who can be regarded as the normal range.
2. Moderate scoliosis: scoliosis at 20 to 40 degrees or 50 degrees or more.
3. Severe scoliosis: scoliosis are more than 40 or 50 degrees. Most merger degenerative arthritis of the spine, scoliosis if greater than 60 or 70 degrees, often caused by heart and lung dysfunction.
Scoliosis causes:
1. Non-structural scoliosis reasons: the length of the foot. Habitual bad posture, such as endorsement package. Spine on both sides of muscle tone imbalance, bent to the side of the spine. Due to pain caused by the compensatory scoliosis, such as protruding cartilage
2. Structural scoliosis reasons: for unknown reasons. It accounted for about 80% of the spine, usually in puberty onset, but may be in a smaller age attack. Neuromuscular diseases, such as cerebral palsy, polio and so on.
3. scoliosis assessment, the average patient spine of the following occurs:. • on both sides of the shoulder is not as high as the side of one hip more prominent shoulder blades protruding pelvic tilt
If it is structural scoliosis, when the patient bends forward, scoliosis situation will be more obvious.
Scoliosis categories:
 1. C Type: C spine bent to shape positive, accounting for 70% of the General scoliosis.
2. S type: spine curved in an S shape, accounting for 30% of the General scoliosis.
Scoliosis Treatment: Non-structural scoliosis: as long as the reasons for its cause to solve, can be restored. Structural scoliosis: in accordance with the age of its occurrence, severity, the causes to arrange treatment.
• Mild scoliosis: exercise therapy (must be in accordance with the spine angle, direction of rotation, softness structure to design exercise prescription, it is personal, must be under the guidance of professional staff).
• moderate scoliosis: exercise therapy plus wearing a back shelf. Brace to wear at least one day 12 hours to wear skeletal maturity date.
• Severe scoliosis: acupuncture therapy, if bone defect consider surgery.
Others such as electrotherapy, traction therapy, and no studies have shown to have significantly improved scoliosis, usually still sports therapy.
Scoliosis What are the dangers?
Scoliosis affect the patient’s morphology and psychology. Orthopedic experts say, scoliosis generally difficult to early detection, many patients are to wait until there is a clear deformity, curvature of the spine occurs, back bulge asymmetrically, Kazakhstan Hanxiong back phenomenon, after the patient’s chest and back many bulge a rib peak, also known as razor back when was discovered, when the patient’s body has been significantly affected, from frustrated confidence is not conducive to mental health.
Scoliosis patients can cause short stature, not a long one. Orthopedic experts say, suffers from scoliosis, the curve will affect the growth of the body.
Scoliosis also affect the patient’s heart and lung health. This is also what are the dangers of scoliosis in that, because the thoracolumbar scoliosis occurs in the majority, oppressed lungs may occur pulmonary dysfunction, along with scoliosis aggravation, it may also affect circulation, cardiac function obstacles activity appears slightly flustered shortness of breath.
Scoliosis may affect life expectancy. Orthopedic experts say, the general level of scoliosis patients with serious health greatly impaired the long run, as well as lifelong paralyzed crisis occurred, decreased quality of life, the average life expectancy is shorter than the normal person.
Acupuncture therapy
We believe that the pathological process scoliosis, spinal column strength to maintain the fixed (vertebrae) is the normal arrangement of soft tissue (muscle ligaments, etc.), but once they lesions, such as muscles, ligaments, tendon and other lesions appear as adhesion occurs, calcification contracture scars and other diseases, followed by soft tissue loss or loss of muscle strength with the original action, has led force imbalance spine, vertebrae instability phenomena, such as vertebrae shift, there have been 2-5 to the vertebrae side shift, scoliosis is formed. Some will oppress the nerves, blood vessels leading to a variety of symptoms.
  Acupuncture treatment process: through the release of acupuncture, peeling clear, stimulating lifting their adhesions, scar contracture, calcification and other diseases, to restore the force balance around the bone, the way will be joint reduction, but also to restore the visual senses, lifted compression of nerves, blood vessels, all the clinical manifestations of chest tightness, pain, limited mobility and other symptoms disappeared, to tackling the problem, the chance of recurrence is very small. Range acupuncture treatment in scoliosis of 45 degrees or less with no vertebral defect can be cured by acupuncture non-surgical therapy. Information about the acupuncture treatment of  Scoliosis Please call Adelaide Yihong Acupuncture Clinic or visit our website atwww.adelaideacupuncture.com.au.

Acupuncture Treatment of Sciatica

Acupuncture Treatment of Sciatica

Sciatica is a common disorder. With unilateral disease more common. More common in middle-aged men. Sudden onset. Acute onset of sciatica often the first to see the waist and lower back pain stiff sense, it may appear a few days later along the path of the sciatic nerve pain. Some patients also may have been a few weeks before the onset of walking or movement while drawing sometimes cause transient nerve pain, and gradually increase and the development of intense pain. More pain spread to the buttocks or feet from the hip down. In the medial femoral trochanter, ischial hole after iliac, the middle of the popliteal fossa, and lateral dorsal lateral leg behind the thigh of the most serious.
The pain is dull and there was persistent paroxysmal intensified, paroxysmal pain may be burning and lancinating, often at night intensified. To alleviate the pain, patients often take a variety of special reduce pain posture, for example, when sleep again hi to the contralateral side, the patient side of the hip and knee bent. When a patient needs to sit-ups, knee disease side will be bent, which is reflective curved protective. When sat down, first and foremost focus on the contralateral hip.
When standing, the body slightly to the contralateral are oblique, lower extremity disease in the hip, the knee bend, causing scoliosis, the most convex side of the disease, that is oblique to the contralateral trunk are to relieve the intervertebral foramen nerve root pressure. Also few convex to the contralateral, to relieve neural stem tension. When Widespread object, the patient will be affected knee flexion, so as not to stretch the sciatic nerve. Sciatica, and was exacerbated by the nature of the radioactive pain pain when coughing, sneezing and gas and hard. Lumbar spinous process and the transverse process tenderness the most obvious, and points along the sciatic nerve pathway less pain.
Sciatica clinical reasons, mostly lumbar disc bulge and recommended plexus and peripheral nerve damage and piriformis syndrome is more common, so the principle of acupuncture treatment of sciatica, muscle relaxation around the path of the sciatic nerve, and clear the meridians effect. Most patients protruding disc. Both sides of the spinal muscles are very stiff, acupuncture can relieve muscle quickly, and then relaxation lumbar oppression, for disc bulge can achieve a certain effect, even more than with the efficacy of Western medicine rehabilitation pull back better.
Divided  primary sciatica  and secondary categories on clinical sciatica. Primary sciatica (sciatic nerve inflammation) cause is still unclear, and may be cold outside, or between nerves mass infection by clinical relatively rare. Its performance for rapid onset, not severe pain at the beginning, but soon there will be severe along the sciatic nerve pathway unbearable pain, multi-site began to spread from the distal end of the buttocks or hip. Patients often have to sleep healthy knees to side; stand up from time to time from the contralateral efforts to support hand waist, bending often standing disease and limb to the body center of gravity moved to the special position of the contralateral pain relief. Straight leg raising test (patient supine, both legs naturally straight, limb elevation less than 70 degrees and cause leg pain) was significantly positive.
secondary categories on clinical Sciatica clinical manifestations of disease due to proximity to nerve root compression or irritation caused by dry and root into two categories, respectively, refers to pressure areas in the nerve roots or in terms of neural stem. Sciatica is the most common clinical, lesion located within the spinal canal, to the cause of lumbar disc herniation is more common, followed by a spinal tumors, spinal tuberculosis, lumbosacral nerve roots go far onset varies with the cause. Generally slow onset, many patients with a longer time under the back waist pain or backache, pain often from the waist to the side of the hip, thigh, popliteal fossa, lateral leg and foot radiation, was burning or knife like pain, worse at night, turn over and affect sleep. Often due to coughing, sneezing, bending or sudden shock, severe pain caused by increased activity.
Falling visible outside of the leg and dorsal limb numbness and sensory loss, gluteal muscle tension relaxation, stretching toe and toe flexor muscle weakness, tendon reflexes diminished or disappeared. Patients avoid nerve stretch, compression, often take a special position to reduce pain, such as lying to the contralateral hip, knee flexion, standing focus on the healthy side when sleeping, falling to the contralateral cause scoliosis, sitting see tilted to the contralateral hip to relieve nerve root compression. Straight leg raising test will not necessarily be positive. Dry sciatica lesions mainly in the sciatic spinal stroke, usually caused by sacroiliitis, pelvic tumors, pregnant uterus oppression, hip trauma, piriformis syndrome, intramuscular injection and diabetes caused by improper. Clinical manifestations of primary and sciatica symptoms are similar, but the difference is most obvious and slow onset of muscle atrophy and distal sensory deficits characteristic. CSF, making X-ray and CT, MRI slices can be confirmed.
Clinically, the disease easily confused with sciatica I think it is a hip fasciitis, aseptic necrosis of the femoral head and the other is. There are hip fasciitis hip pain, but often radiation to the thigh, calf and sometimes also feel discomfort, straight leg raising when there may be pain in the buttocks and thighs, it is easy to be confused with sciatica. But careful history can be found in patients with sciatica pain location is not the same site, the inspection can not find reflection and sensory disturbances often sciatica, leg straight leg raising when the sciatic nerve is not distribution. I think it is unique in acupuncture analgesia aspects of sciatica. Acupuncture treatment of sciatica is to achieve a therapeutic effect from several aspects.
First, the analgesic effect of acupuncture. To stimulate specific acupuncture points on the body to produce some kind of analgesic substance. Second, the anti-inflammatory effect of acupuncture. Acupuncture can stimulate specific acupuncture points, some kind of anti-inflammatory substances produced by the body. Third, the swelling effect of acupuncture. Acupuncture can improve local blood circulation, accelerate the elimination of local nerve root edema. Fourth, acupuncture can relieve local muscle tension, indirect play the Treatment of Sciatica.
Chinese medicine treatment of sciatica, the first is based on clinical symptoms to determine what type of illness choose a different treatment.
1. The cold, wet, paralysis type: cold sore waist and legs, walk up and down, flexion and extension inconvenience, cold rainy weather worsened, or with leg swelling; tongue, thin white or greasy, floating and tight pulse or sink. Acupuncture point selection:zhibian, yinlingquan, shumen, ashi.
2. Qi stagnation: a history of lower back injury, waist and legs tingling, sore afraid to push, push radiation was tingling, increased pain at night, the body can not prone and supine body flip difficulties; color dark purple tongue or ecchymosis, pulse astringent. Acupuncture point selection point selection;yanglingquan, geshu, xuehai, weizhong, ashi.
3. Kidney deficiency: lumbar and leg pain, recurrent physical work increased, the lower limbs and knees, afraid of the wind afraid of cold, lassitude, pale gray; less pale tongue, thin pulse. Acupuncture point selection:shenshu, weizhong, zusanli. sanyinjiao, ashi.
