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. Bloodletting: varicose veins in place, with Needle prick bleeding orders, even ejection to himself for the degree, and then pull out cupping in congestion, treating every 10-15 days. Information about the acupuncture treatment of Varicose veins  , please visit our website at www.adelaideacupuncture.com.au.

 

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. Dizziness, vertigo, nausea, vomiting, symptoms of tolls. When the occipital nerve and lesser occipital nerve entrapment is. Produce headache scalp tight symptoms. Symptoms of nerve root compression card, and neck pain, back pain, numbness in the hand. Sometimes heel pain is caused by cervical strain.

Acupuncture treatment of cervical disease is by dredging meridians, promoting blood circulation to achieve the purpose of treatment. The correct choice of treatment points. This greatly influence the effectiveness of the treatment. Past traditional acupuncture acupuncture treatment in the place of pain. Of course, this practice applies local soft tissue damage. It is primary. But this is often not the best treatment sites. Because the pain is not necessarily point the muscles or ligaments start and end points. This is a great influence on efficacy. Many people tend to ignore this problem. So pain patients are often repeated, the treatment cycle is very long.

Treatment of selected points with symptoms characteristic division. Dizziness selected point: Most of dizziness caused by the first and second cervical vertebrae at. You can touch the nodules. Lumpy is friction between the head behind the rectus muscle size, resulting in fascial adhesions. Muscle spasms. Oppression through the bottom of the vertebral artery. Cause dizziness, release here nodules. Back pain, numbness in the back of select point therapy: Looking for cervical nodules second and third cervical spine next. Touch is painful, be release. Cervical pain, back pain, numbness in the shoulder point treatment options: Find the third cervical nodules and fourth cervical spine at the next. Touch the pain, be release. Arm pain, numbness in the thumb, index finger numbness, finger numbness select point therapy: Looking next to the fifth and sixth cervical spine cervical nodules touch is painful, be release. Arm pain, numbness in the ring finger, middle finger numbness, numbness in the little finger to select point therapy: Looking nodules sixth and seventh cervical vertebra cervical spinous process next touch is painful, be release.

Human cervical spine smallest, but the most active part of the largest event frequency. He followed the body’s development, growth, maturity. And constantly subjected to various loads, symptoms of the disease is varied. To make judgments based on the actual situation. Information about the acupuncture treatment of   cervical spondylosis, please visit our website at www.adelaideacupuncture.com.au.

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.

Acupuncture treatment stroke sequela

Stroke sequela

Stroke high early mortality, about half of patients die within a few days of onset. Stroke has a very high mortality and morbidity, mainly divided into hemorrhagic stroke (cerebral hemorrhage or subarachnoid hemorrhage) and ischemic stroke (cerebral infarction} survivors are left with varying degrees of movement disorders, cognitive disorders, speech disorders, swallowing complications. on ischemic stroke patients with hemiplegia clinical sequelae main. occurred in the 50 years of age, men slightly more than women.
Stroke sequelae main hemiplegia (hemiplegia), unilateral limb disorders, numbness, hemianopia, aphasia. Or cross paralysis, sensory disturbances cross external ophthalmoplegia, nystagmus, speech impairment, memory loss, crooked mouth, difficulty swallowing, choking water, food choking, dizziness and headache. The root causes of these symptoms that occur within the cerebral blood viscosity, high blood lipids, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, blood platelet aggregation and other diseases, and atherosclerosis plaque formation of vascular lesions, formed by the two diseases combined effect results cerebral arterial blockage caused by blood clots, resulting in the interruption of blood flow and cerebral ischemic brain tissue hypoxia and necrosis. If affected by the brain to control movement of the nervous system, there will be a corresponding sequela hemiplegia, limb disorders; if affects the brain controlling language of the central nervous system, and even language barriers can lead to aphasia and other relevant neurological symptoms.
For the treatment of stroke sequelae, modern medicine is mainly for controlling the patient’s blood pressure, diet, nutrition nerve really taking medication for the disease, taking medication to reduce blood lipids and blood viscosity, limb rehabilitation. Means for comparing a single treatment, the treatment is not particularly effective. Healing effect is not good. Patients are often left serious consequences. Resulting in permanent disability. Means of acupuncture treatment of stroke sequelae varied. And the effect is very satisfactory. They tend to have a magical effect. These are the modern medicine can not be compared.

Traditional Chinese Medicine to Treat principle

1. limb weakness: This symptom performance. One or both limbs slight limb paralysis. Weak limbs soft weakness, the symptoms are mainly nourish the liver and kidney strong bones.
2 limb paralysis: the performance of this disease. Limbs completely paralyzed on one side or both sides. Muscle relaxation, muscle weakness. Treatment of this symptom is through meridians, promoting blood circulation
3. limb atrophy: The manifestations of this disease, paralysis of limbs atrophy symptoms. This condition should be adjusted to the qi and blood, spleen and kidney.
4. The body surface temperature is low: this disease symptom is paralysis of the limb surface temperature is cold. Lower than the temperature of other parts of the body. Such symptoms should be through the meridians, applies moxibustion therapy.
More than four symptoms, which can appear in the same patient. It may occur alone treatment should be adjusted according to the actual situation of the disease. From the point of care should be taken to select different meridians approach. Paralysis of the distal part of the treatment from a distance. That is when the left limb paralysis occurs, treatment should select the point in the right limb meridians. When the right limb paralysis occurs, treatment should be selected in the left limb of the meridian points, select alternate treatment sites.
Further stroke sequelae also consider other symptoms. Such as facial paralysis, difficulty swallowing, University of incontinence, mental retardation, loss of language skills, foot valgus, foot inside turn. Comprehensive management. Acupuncture should intervene in time after the acute phase.
Early intervention can significantly reduce or eliminate side effects. Information about the acupuncture treatment of  stroke sequela, please visit our website atwww.adelaideacupuncture.com.au.

Acupuncture treatment of heel pain

Heel pain on one side or both sides of the pain, not red nor swollen, walking inconvenience. It is due to the heel bone, joint, bursa, fascia, etc. lesions caused by the disease. The plantar fascia is a common inflammation, long-term, chronic injuries caused by the performance of the plantar fascia fiber breakage and repair process. Which is characterized by the early morning when standing and walking unilateral or bilateral foot or heel pain, such as needle-shaped. A few minutes the pain disappeared after the event, and then will be a long line of pain. Sometimes change after cold weather and also aggravate the symptoms.
More common in prolonged standing or walking workers, long-term, chronic injury. High incidence of middle-aged women. Serious difficulties in walking. Doctors believe heel pain is mainly due to the heel bone hyperplasia, joint, Achilles tendinitis, bursitis, fasciitis and other diseases induced. Lateral X, fascia Fuli and tenderness at the osteoarthritis in the medial calcaneal beneath the lateral X-ray films showed heel spur. But there is not necessarily spur heel pain, plantar fasciitis may not have bone spurs.
Traditional Chinese medicine, heel pain mostly liver and kidney, phlegm, blood, etc. due to the very hot. Liver reinforcement, renal bone, liver and kidney deficiency, bones dystrophy, complex sense evil wind cold or chronic strain will lead to stasis meridian, blood running blocked, so that muscle and dystrophy disease.

1. The bottom of the heel pain, walking in some patients after improving. Tired and then increase. Some patients patients can be improved after the break.
2. There is the feeling of pain at the bottom of the heel. Usually has three pain points located inside the external ankle bone attachment respectively, through the part of the foot.
3. The bottom of the foot to the inside of the turn Or turn to the outside, accompanied by a foot pain. Activities of obstacles.
4. The foot heel pain to accentuate when walking activities. Rest pain relief.
Causing heel pain causes. Calcaneal lesions factors: such as fractures. Calcaneal deformity. Calcaneus bone spurs hyperplasia. Sports injury: the human body during daily activities most frequent action, most likely injury action, action is the neck down, the rise of neck movement. Hip flexion and extension movements. Waist flexion and extension movements. Knee flexion and extension movements. The sixth and seventh cervical cervical cervical portion is most likely injury.
Seventh cervical spinous process highest above attached muscles maximum force, most likely damage. The body’s muscles and ligaments as a closed chain. The seventh cervical vertebra injury in chain drive way. Transmitted to the bottom of the foot, causing foot pain. Similarly, waist injury, pelvic displacement, knee injuries are conduction through the chain, causing heel pain. This is a factor in the treatment of heel pain disorders need to be considered. Many people tend to ignore these. When they could not find the real cause of the treatment of pain. Helpless.
Of cervical causes heel pain, treatment point in the sixth or seventh cervical spine. Waist causes heel pain, treatment of muscle at the point in the sacral spine. Hip causes heel pain, treatment at the point of the greater trochanter. Heel pain, knee treatment point causes the patella in place. Therapy should be based on the principles of Chinese medicine, blood circulation, to wind and dampness. Information about the acupuncture treatment of   Heel Pain, please visit our website at www.adelaideacupuncture.com.au.

Acupuncture treatment of frozen shoulder syndrome

Frozen shoulder is caused by a variety of shoulder joint capsule and surrounding muscles, tendons, ligaments, synovial bursa extensive adhesions formed condition. Frozen shoulder more common in 50-year-old middle-aged or elderly. More women than men. High incidence of left shoulder. Often encountered the cold shoulder disease. Shoulder pain gradually worsened. Shoulder pain is light during the day . Severe shoulder pain at night. And the emergence of the neck, ears, shoulder and forearm and hand radiating pain. Lift arm pain. Arm stretched back pain exacerbated. Shoulder limited mobility, can not do serious dressing, hair, face and other activities. Shoulder swelling is not obvious, there is widespread tenderness around the shoulder joint.
The human body is the body of the shoulder joint range of motion in the largest joint. Joint stability depends mainly on the strength of the muscles, tendons, ligaments around the joints to maintain. Due to poor blood supply to the tendon itself, but with age and soft tissue degenerative changes occur, the capacity of the various external forces weakened, the gradual emergence of shoulder pain. This is a clear relationship between movement, posture. Initially paroxysmal shoulder pain. The majority of chronic seizures. Patients also noted that the initial pain point, late expanded. Feeling pain from the humerus. Then after pain gradually increased, the formation of dull or knife-like pain. And persistent pain. Shoulder pain during the day and at night the pain increased pain relief is a feature. Most of the patients complained of pain often woke up late at night, can not sleep, especially not in shoulder pain on one side of the bed. serioue when the elbow joints may also be affected.
Shoulder joint in all directions can be limited. Outside the exhibition, on the move, internal rotation, external rotation of the most obvious. As the disease progresses. It will cause the joint capsule, soft tissue around the shoulder of adhesion. Decreased muscle strength. Shoulder in all directions. Severe elbow joints may also be affected.
1. Acute phase: sudden onset of severe pain, muscle spasms, joint activity limitation. Wide range of tenderness, coracoid, brachial beak ligament, post on the muscle, biceps appear tenderness. It lasted 3-15 weeks.
2. Frozen shoulder, also known as chronic phase of: At this relatively pain eased, but the range of shoulder tenderness remains widespread. Joint limited to development of atrophic dysfunction. At this time more severe joint limitation. Joint stiffness. Arm abduction, on the move, abduction, exhibition, after the touch is very difficult. Soft tissue around the shoulder joint adhesions state. Time 9-15 months
3. Functional rehabilitation: soft tissue around the shoulder joint and synovial blood supply back to normal. Soft tissue adhesions gradually restored. In the process of the gradual recovery of motor function, muscle blood supply, nutrition, nerve supply has been improved. Most patients with frozen shoulder shoulder function returned to normal or near normal. Muscle atrophy take longer to return to normal exercise. Time 15-24 months
Application of acupuncture can regulate vascular function, improve blood circulation, stasis pathological metabolites inflammation accelerate the decomposition zone and carried away, or inactivating it. Acupuncture also reduce the area of inflammation vascular permeability, reducing inflammatory exudate, reduce inflammation and generalized inflammatory exudation substances accelerate absorption, reduce swelling, relieve stretch its stimulating effect on peripheral nerves. So acupuncture in the treatment of frozen shoulder effect is quite good.
Acupuncture can activate the body’s endogenous morphine-like substances, play a strong analgesic effect. Frozen shoulder recovery, acupuncture can significantly promote tissue repair, and inhibit the excessive proliferation of connective tissue and reduce adhesions to relieve dysfunction. So that in each period of frozen shoulder pathology, acupuncture has a significant and reliable therapeutic effect. Thus, the role of acupuncture treatment of frozen shoulder a lot.
The clinical manifestations of multiple frozen shoulder and arm pain, the function is limited, the pathological mechanism of bleeding lesions, edema peripheral nerve pain of oppression and distraction, so that local inflammatory stasis metabolite concentration increased direct stimulation of pain nerves, so have severe pain. Inflammatory exudate so generalized inflammation, involving the adjacent tissue, post connective tissue proliferation, adhesion, etc., so that joint movement disorder. Acupuncture treatment of frozen shoulder, can effectively alleviate or even remove these symptoms.
Western medicine treatment of frozen commonly used drug therapy with surgery, drug therapy is designed to allow patients with oral anti-inflammatory analgesic drugs, but most patients will relapse after withdrawal, and the use of surgical methods of treatment are easily lead to soft tissue adhesions, it is generally recommended treatment of frozen shoulder are more Chinese medicine treatment methods.

Acupuncture treatment of back pain

As the society rhythm speeding up, work pressure increases, the improvement of people’s living standard and life work environment, the incidence of back pain is growing at an alarming rate. Back pain is one of the most common disease. Recent studies show that over 80% of the population will be back pain in life. , this may work with people at a prolonged, decreased activity, and obesity and other factors, back pain is one of the top five medical reasons. People are very necessary to understand the understanding of the waist back pain diseases, the corresponding treatment and health care knowledge, so as to prevent, early diagnosis, early treatment, the purpose of preventing recurrence.

Muscle or myofascial pain is caused due to the upper back muscles to tighten. The upper part of the pain may be a big incentive to injury, such as sports injuries, fall or car accidents; there may be minor damage, such as when working long hours bent over, carrying things from the ground, and even snoring! Arthritis, bad posture, weight soared and psychological pressure will trigger or aggravate back pain. Other non-mechanical causes of back pain may be due to visceral diseases such as kidney stones, bone loss, or blood clotting joint dysfunction. Back pain has become sedentary computer workers before a very common phenomenon. Because this kind of work does not require a lot of movement, so the blood flow will be reduced, and to back injury.
The main structure of the back of the spine, a columnar structure contains several joints it is constituted by a plurality of vertebrae in its internal running of the spinal cord, peripheral encircled the ligaments, muscles, tendons and fascia. The back of the structure is very sophisticated, clever, complicated, it is precisely for this reason, the back is more susceptible to injury. By the seven cervical spine, 12 thoracic, five lumbar, five sacral and four coccygeal constitute, from the side, the spine was a soothing large S-type, there are four physiological curvature. No matter where we are standing, or sitting, the lumbar spine have been under a lot of gravity, while in life we often have to be like turn around, bend over, and so on, stretch the action, adding to the burden on the waist, so that the waist is very likely to occur injury, resulting in pain. Pain, may cause these joints can not function properly. Sometimes occur muscle strain, ligament sprain, joint inflammation or disc damage. The reason is that the pain occurs pain stimuli, pain stimuli emitted by pain stimuli by sensory afferents posterior horn of the spinal cord, upload it to the brain, causing the motor neurons, the sympathetic nervous excitement, so that increased muscle tension, vasoconstriction, local pain blood flow, lack of oxygen, caused by ischemia, hypoxia, resulting in pain caused by substances. The back is a very broad range, specifically, it includes a neck, chest, waist, sacral and so on. The entire back waist is the most important, it is the weakest link, the back of most diseases have taken place here.
Treatment of back pain. Chinese medicine acupuncture and Western medicine is very different. Diagnostic methods and treatments used is also different.
1. think treatment of traditional Chinese medicine should be dominated by the idea of the overall thought, on the basis of the viscera and channels, western medicine thinks: should be symptomatic treatment. Through a series of tests to find the signs, to determine whether surgery or medication.
2. Chinese medicine focus on their own adjustment, self-defense, self-healing to achieve the purpose of medical treatment. Western medicine is focused on using external means to cure the disease rely on human medical technology, surgical technology to fight the disease.

But for many chronic diseases, weakened form of the body disease, physical deterioration and form of the disease,Incorrect lifestyle diseases caused.Often routine examination was normal, but the patient feels real symptoms are present. For these patients, Western medicine in the treatment no effective means, often helpless, the disease to a more serious direction, and finally take extreme surgery. But there are very effective .Chinese medicine acupuncture treatment for this type of disease, and the treatment effect is very good, very short period of treatment.

Chinese medicine Acupuncture is based on traditional Chinese meridians, blood circulation, adjust the yin and yang theory, combined with modern anatomy, physiology, pathology, theory of soft tissue injury. His role is to clear the adhesions, scar release, eliminate soft tissue contracture, eliminate nerve entrapment, releasing abnormally high stress soft tissue, improve microcirculation, regulate the balance biomechanics, pathology displacement and deformity correction.

Back pain involves many complex causes, it can be divided into the nape, shoulder, waist, sacral waist. I will introduce in a future blog. For information on the treatment of back pain, please visit our website at www.adelaideacupuncture.com.au
