When treating, first observe the appearance of the patient's spine with or without bending deformation. If it is bent to the left, the needle is stuck.
Right (pictured below), if the pain point on the spine is clear, when there is a cord when touching, directly acupuncture, deep into the bone surface, there is a feeling of pulling after the needle, the patient feels soreness and conduction, 20 minutes later Take the needle. The patient's symptoms were reduced by 70%, and there was no obvious spinal weakness during sitting.
Discussion: 1. The lateral bend is on the right side of the needle because the right side is severely damaged and the lesion is on the right side. The inflammatory substance causes muscle contraction and is relieved after acupuncture.
- The depth of acupuncture, the acupuncture must reach the bone surface, about 2.5cm, sometimes the effect is poor because there is no needle disease! The bone surface of the spinous process is where the muscles, especially the ligaments, are where the lesions are.
- The method of acupuncture and diarrhea are the main methods. After the needle reaches the bone surface, the right circumcision first feels that the needle body is gradually and gradually pulled, until all the traction feeling disappears. The disappearance of the pulling sensation is the relief of the muscle ligament tension. , you can get out of the needle.
- For the treatment of spinal-related lesions, it is necessary to acupuncture the Dazhui points, which is helpful for relieving the tension of the upper ligament and disc herniation.
