ACUPUNCTURE

Symptoms and diseases in which acupuncture therapy is helpful are:

  • painful conditions (headache, neuralgia, lumboischialgia, spondylosis ...)
  • rheumatic diseases
  • degenerative diseases of the spine and joints
  • extracellular rheumatism (tendinitis, entezitis, periarthritis - painful shoulder)
  • fractures and sports injuries
  • neurological diseases (weakness, paresis and paralysis of peripheral nerves, post-stroke condition)

 

TRIGGER POINT TREATMENT

Trigger point (trigger) implies a sensitive area in the muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin and joint. It is characterized by local and iradiozional pressure pain, depending on the type. An active trigger point causes local or distressed discomfort and pain, and latent only local if it is idle.

The spread of pain in the environment of the pain is characteristic for each point, which means that pressure on a point may cause distressed pain by the pattern of the point at hand. A chronic tricuspid may sometimes give an image of inflammatory degenerative diseases with stiffening of individual or group of joints. Usually the size of the needle eye is up to the size of the pea. It's not always easy to find them.

They may be due to acute (chronic) chronic overload of the muscles, anatomical anomalies, psychological factors (stress, fear), chronic infections, metabolic disorders (lack of vitamins C and B6) or resulting from over-consumption of coffee or alcohol.

Acute thoracic spots may cause headaches, dizziness, nausea, sinus and lower jaw pain, local and distal neck pain, various extremities, chest and abdomen, spinal cord and back musculature, and untreated can result in asymmetry of the locomotor system and its even greater consequences .
