Acupuncture treatment in paralysis

Hives (urticaria) are swollen and red, bumps, patches or welts on the skin that appear suddenly. Hives can occur anywhere on the body including the hands, face, lips, tongue, throat, or ears. Whether lasting for just a few minutes, a few hours or persisting for several weeks, hives are rarely a medical emergency. While standard treatment for acute cases of hives involves antihistamines or a corticosteroid drug to relieve symptoms, many people are turning to acupuncture and East Asian medicine to address underlying imbalances that cause this condition and help stop recurrent outbreaks. In East Asian medicine, an outbreak of hives is described as wind invading the skin and the meridians, causing itching and swelling. Treatments are directed at addressing both the cause and the symptoms by providing immediate relief from the itching and swelling and addressing the underlying imbalances and triggers that are causing the condition. A study published in the Internet Journal of Dermatology examined the efficacy of acupuncture in the treatment of chronic hives (urticaria). In Tao of medicine, each patient is individual, and thoroughly assessed of their energy by a skilled practitioner which is the best judgement of whether treatment may be beneficial.
However, if you wanted to establish whether acupuncture treatment was a good option for yourself or someone on whose behalf you are asking, then a brief face to face assessment by a experienced Acupuncturist is your best way. La sinusitis es una inflamacion de los senos paranasales, que son los espacios huecos llenos de aire en el craneo y huesos faciales alrededor de la nariz.
Los sintomas de la sinusitis cronica generalmente son parecidos a la gripe, afeccion que suele ser producto de una infeccion viral y que a menudo se presenta acompanada por catarro o congestion nasal, estornudos, dolor de garganta, ojos acuosos y fiebre. En raras ocasiones, se puede contraer una infeccion bacteriana a consecuencia de una gripe, lo que deriva en sinusitis bacteriana aguda.
En la sinusitis cronica, el revestimiento interno de los senos paranasales, llamado mucosa, se inflama e hincha.
En la evaluacion de la sinusitis cronica, el otorrinolaringologo realiza con una camara un examen  conocido como endoscopia nasal.
Cuando alguien padece sinusitis cronica, por lo general primero se intenta reducir la inflamacion con tratamiento medico. Si los medicamentos no bastan para aliviar los sintomas o controlar la inflamacion, entonces se podria requerir una cirugia.
Muchos cirujanos ya no colocan tapones de gasa despues de la operacion, lo que hace que la recuperacion sea mucho mas comoda que antes. En muchos casos, la cirugia de los senos paranasales mejora significativamente los sintomas. Si usted tiene polipos nasales o si su sinusitis cronica esta complicada por otros problemas respiratorios, como asma obronquitis, lo mejor es que un rinologo evalue su afeccion.

Spasmodic torticollis is the name given to the twisting of neck muscles due to genetic factor. For some people chronic sinusitis can cause infection on the ears, jaw and scalp giving rise to twisting of neck muscles. Some of the other signs of torticollis are headache, cramps in the neck, back pain and rigidity of the muscles.
The doctor will conduct detailed examination of the patient taking his family history and health condition. In many people, the affected muscles can be brought to normal position within few days or weeks.
In rare cases, surgical procedure is done for correcting the nerves of the neck preventing muscle contraction.

Researchers from Kyung Hee University, in Seoul, Korea studied the effect of electroacupuncture.
6 acupuncture points were used to stimulate the sacral nerve and release the piriformis muscle (from the buttock to the top of the thigh bone [photo]) using an electrical pulse generator. At 6 weeks, pain-related symptoms decreased significantly in Group 1 (electroacupuncture) vs the other groups. All patients receiving electroacupuncture experienced at least a 6-point decrease in the NIH-CPSI total score vs 2 patients with sham-electroacupuncture and 3A  points in patients who received advice and exercise alone.
Prostaglandin E(2) levels significantly decreased in the electroacupuncture group, but increased in the other 2 groups. If you’re experiencing pain in the front of your shoulder, you may have an injury to your bicep tendon. This type of bicep tendon injury is probably the most common type that we see at our clinic. Quite often patients come to our clinic with a diagnostic ultrasound report showing inflammation in the bicep tendon.
Itching is the most common symptom associated with hives, although some people report that hives cause a stinging or burning sensation. A sign that the whole body is experiencing a hypersensitivity reaction, a hives outbreak can occur due to a wide array of stimuli. However, in some cases they are the first sign of a strong allergic reaction to something and can be accompanied by shock or difficulty breathing, which can be life threatening. The results showed that acupuncture was able to reduce both episode rate and episode duration of urticaria by as much as 25 percent.
Cuando eso ocurre, los sintomas de la gripe empeoran despues de 7 a 10 dias y podria presentarse secrecion nasal de color amarillo o verde, dolor en la cara o dientes y fiebre. A pesar de que los sintomas de sinusitis cronica generalmente no incluyen fiebre, si puede haber secrecion nasal espesa de color generalmente verde o amarillo, junto con congestion nasal. A fin de realizar el examen, se introduce a traves de la nariz una sonda fina que contiene una diminuta luz y una camara en el extremo, llamada endoscopio, hasta los senos paranasales.


El especialista puede recomendar medicamentos, tales como los antibioticos, los esteroides nasales u orales, o un enjuague con solucion salina.
La operacion, llamada cirugia endoscopica de los senos paranasales, implica expandir la abertura de estos  para permitir mejor drenaje y respiracion. Por lo general, se realiza un procedimiento llamado desbridamiento pocos dias despues de la cirugia para limpiar las vias nasales y los senos paranasales. No obstante, incluso despues de la cirugia, muchas personas con sinusitis cronica todavia requieren tratamiento continuo, tal como usar ocasionalmente esteroides nasales y enjuagues nasales para mantener la buena salud de los senos paranasales. El rinologo es un otorrinolaringologo especializado en trastornos nasales y de los senos paranasales.
In this position, the neck appears twisted to one side making your head to tilt on sideward.
The head will be in slanted position and it hurts the person lot to move his head even little. The muscular portions between the shoulder and neck will become brittle and stressed leading to constriction. Various types of treatments include medications, botox injection, physiotherapy and surgery. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice.
Its role in shoulder motion and stability is an area of controversy in the world of muculoskeletal medicine, but we do know for certain that the tendon of the bicep (located in the front of the shoulder) has the ability to generate pain. An easy way to landmark this tendon is to flex your bicep muscle and follow it right up into the top of your shoulder. A patient with this type of pain usually has pain in the front of the shoulder and complains of pain with pressure over the area.
As mentioned above, wear and tear can be associated with inflammation in the area of the bicep tendon. While intolerance to certain foods, additives, intense emotions, sunlight exposure, and medications can all cause hives, in 70-75 percent of outbreaks the exact cause of hives remains unknown. When the eruptions are a pale pink or white, it is likely that the diagnosis will be wind-cold invading the skin. After three weeks the majority of the acupuncture treated patients experienced partial remission of their symptoms.
El analisis implica una visita al otorrinolaringologo o medico de oidos, nariz y garganta, para que examine los senos paranasales.
La sinusitis aguda dura hasta 4 semanas, pero cuando los sintomas continuan por mas de 12 semanas, la persona podria tener sinusitis cronica. Ademas, puede suscitarse un dolor sordo o presion en las mejillas, ojos, frente o parte posterior de la cabeza. En determinados casos, una exploracion portomografia computarizada tambien puede servir para evaluar los senos paranasales. La cirugia suele realizarse con un endoscopio, completamente a traves de la nariz, y no deriva en ningun tipo de hinchazon ni moraduras.
Las personas suelen notar gran mejoria en los sintomas despues de eso y la mayoria es capaz de reanudar sus actividades normales en ese momento. In my opinion, this rise is likely due to lifestyle factors, changes in diet and the quality of our food supply, cosmetics and pollution.
It may occur due to hereditary factor or any accidental injury or trauma caused to the neck muscles.
Similarly a person who takes chloropromazine or haloperidol is prone to develop twisting of neck muscles or head muscles and even back.
It is very difficult for affected person to turn their head swiftly and only with great discomfort they can change position of their head. There are variable patient presentations and different treatment options depending on the specific dysfunction. As mentioned above, the bicep tendon has an insertion on a piece of cartilage called the labrum. For example, a recent traumatic cartilage injury would likely require referral to an orthopedic surgeon. The researchers also noted that the greatest improvements were seen in the third week of treatments and that the efficacy of acupuncture seemed to increase with each treatment. La mayoria de casos de sinusitis cronica se controla con terapia medica, pero cuando los sintomas o la inflamacion no responden a la terapia, puede ser necesaria una cirugia. No obstante, algunos casos de sinusitis cronica pueden desarrollarse sutilmente, sin una infeccion viral que la preceda. Los sentidos del olfato y del gusto tambien pueden disminuir, y a veces, cuando la inflamacion es muy fuerte, pueden formarse polipos en la nariz.
El procedimiento normalmente no es muy doloroso, aunque la persona puede sentir cansancio y congestion despues.
We live in a very different time than our grandparents, a time of food coloring, CAFOs, and GMO produce. It can also develop due to nervous disorder making it difficult for the person to move his head. For all you baseball fans out there, you’d understand that labrum injuries can be frustrating and stubborn for throwing athletes! In the situation of acute injuries where the cartilage is thought to be damaged (such as labral tears) an MRI is more useful than diagnostic ultrasound. In the case of the more common degenerative tendinopathy or when your doctor has diagnosed you with bicipital tendinitis, physiotherapy or chiropractic can be helpful.
El objetivo del tratamiento es restablecer la salud y funcionamiento de los senos paranasales. Los polipos llenan las vias nasales y pueden ocasionar problemas para respirar, secrecion y cierto mal olor. These things set our immune system on high alert, and sometimes an immune system on high alert will attack itself.Regardless of the causes of eczema, Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture can treat eczema.


Depending on the intensity of the disorder, medicines are repeated until the symptoms completely disappear.
It continues upward into the shoulder and anchors in two places; on a piece of cartilage and on a piece of bone. Regular treatment with acupuncture and herbal medicine can reduce itchiness, scaling, redness, raised patches and decrease the frequency of flare-ups. Torticollis is formed when the underlying muscles are constricted due to infection or inflammation. For people who experience eczema seasonally, with allergies, or in certain weather, acupuncture can also help. When even traditional Western medications don’t seem to be working, this medicine will. Anatomical Drawing of SkinI have a particular interest in dermatology, and have undertaken extra study in addition to the thousands of hours of study as a general practitioner I completed for my Master’s degree.
Acupuncture alone can treat eczema, but I strongly prefer to incorporate herbal medicine and dietary therapy into the treatment plan. Using herbal medicine and dietary therapy will allow us to achieve lasting results and reduction of symptoms more quickly. If you choose to use only acupuncture, a reduction in itchiness, redness, and other symptoms will take longer to achieve, but efficacy is still high.What is the difference between eczema and dermatitis?Eczema is skin disorder that falls under the umbrella of dermatitis. The most common kind of eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, refers to the skin condition coinciding with other allergic conditions, like asthma, food sensitivities, and hay fever. These are described below.What are the different kinds of dermatitis?In most cases of dermatitis, rashes appear in the crooks of the elbows and knees, neck, hands and feet.
Changes in skin color, inflammation, blisters (sometimes oozing, then crusting over), inflammation and thickening (also known as lichenification) can occur. Below is a list of types of dermatitis and their specific symptoms.Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema)Atopic dermatitis is caused by a hypersensitivity reaction in the skin. Atopic dermatitis is most common in infants younger, some of which outgrow eczema as they enter adulthood. We often see in the clinic that dermatitis gets worse when exposed to the substances to which they are allergic.Seborrheic DermatitisSeborrheic dermatitis, also known as dandruff, seborrheic eczema or cradle cap (in infants), is a very common condition in which the skin becomes inflamed, flaky and oily. This is most often observed in areas of the skin that are naturally oily, like the scalp or ear. Other commonly affected areas are the eyebrows, eyelids, creases of the nose, lips, behind the ears, and middle of the chest.Eczema on the handPompholyx Eczema and Dyshidrotic EczemaPompholyx eczema is also known as dyshidrotic or vesicular eczema. It is so named because vesicles (blisters) form on the skin of people with this kind of eczema. The first (acute) stage shows tiny blisters (vesicles) deep in the skin of the palms, fingers, instep or toes. The condition may be mild with only a little peeling, or very severe with big blisters and cracks which prevent work.
There are multiple stages of pompholyx eczema:During the acute stage, we see tiny blisters known as vesicles appear deep in the skin of the palms, fingers, sole of the foot or toes. There may be some peeling and cracking of the skin, which prevents normal movement of the hands.During the chronic stage, there is more peeling, cracking of the skin and crusting of the blisters. Different sites may be in different stages of blistering.Severe case of pompholyx eczema often show changes around the nail, and may cause nail dystrophy. This results in ridges and chronic paronychia (nail fold swelling).Nummular EczemaNummular eczema, like atopic dermatitis, is related to allergies and allergic conditions.
The most commonly affected areas are the arms and legs, though spots and patches may spread to the middle of the body.
Allergic contact dermatitis often presents as red, streaky, or patchy rashes, which are often delayed 24 to 48 hours after exposure.
Irritant contact dermatitis typically presents as rashes which are dry, red, and roughLichen Simplex ChronicusLichen simplex chronicus (LSC) is a skin condition characterized by thickening of the skin with scaling (flaking). The mechanical trauma caused by chronic scratching causes lichenification.A drawing of one of the main theories of Chinese MedicineWhat causes eczema?From a Chinese medicine perspective, there are a number of causes of eczema. The main causes of these imbalances are stress, improper diet, toxin buildup, and other lifestyle and emotional factors. From a modern perspective, we also have to consider hormone imbalances and infection.From a Western biomedical perspective, the cause of eczema is unknown.
What scientists believe is happening is the immune system reacts to an irritant, allergen or other offending substance, or even a phantom substance. Regardless of the cause, I use acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to restore the natural balance of the body. My treatments include long-term planning so that you can maintain your symptom relief through diet and lifestyle after you stop seeing me regularly. Most people continue to come for tune-ups now and again because they feel so great after acupuncture treatments. I encourage seasonal (quarterly visits) and during particularly stressful times as most people have flare-ups during these periods.How does acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine treat Eczema?As I mentioned above, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine work by restoring the natural balance of the body.
Part of this, from a very modern perspective, is settling down the overactive immune system causing dermatitis. Using topical herbal medicine soaks can strongly stop itch, helping support acupuncture treatments between visits.When a patient comes in for treatment of a skin condition, I tell them to expect to need 3 to 6 months of regular treatment with acupuncture and herbal medicine.
Without herbal medicine, treatment to resolve redness, itching and flaking will take longer. If a patient is unwilling to change his or her diet, a complete resolution in eczema symptoms is unlikely.
After eczema symptoms are resolved, I continue treatments for an additional 4 weeks or so to consolidate the treatments.
