SI3 后溪

This Personal fav point for neck and lower back pain. Located on the ulnar border of the hand, in the substantial depres- sion proximal to the head of the fifth metacarpal bone (Deadman, 2007.)

It is a great point for neck and lower back pain because bladder channel (tai yang treats tai yang) and also because it is the shu-stream point of the Small intestine channel. As the confluent point of the Du channel it can treat spine. Shu-stream points on yang channels pertain to wood, which treat tendons and sinews as well. According to The Classic of Difficulties, the shu-stream points are indicated for “heaviness of the body and pain of the joints.””Moreover, the shu stream points are situated in the middle of the five transport points, which can be thought of as between interior and exterior.. which is why shu-stream points are excellent for treating conditions that come and go.” (Young, 2013.)

SI3 can be used as an image of the upper or lower back and occipital headaches as well. It works better when paired with BL65 which is also another shu stream point. As acupuncturists, we treat a wide range of of pain most of the time and it is definitely a great point to have in the tool box.

Scalp Acupuncture: Mom’s Neck Pain

Instant Neck Pain Relief Using Zhu Scalp Acupuncture 

 

One of the best times of the year is when my Korean mother in law comes to town. She’s cooks the best food, takes care of the kids, and we get along great. I don’t speak Korean and she does not speak English so there’s nothing to argue over.

However, she’s been suffering from severe neck and shoulder pain from many years of working so hard. She had a very stiff neck to begin with and the flight over to Australia was very long as well. The pain was along the Du,GB,BL,LI & Sj channels.  We decided to do scalp acupuncture first. After needling the areas over hypothalamus (part of the brain responsible for controlling pain/ motor sensory) and neck area scalp points we had her do some breathing and stretching exercises and after about 5 minutes half the pain was gone.

We kind of hit a wall after that and the pain wouldn’t budge. The neck was alot looser and free but the pain along the Trap and shoulder was still there. We included opposite side Lv4 (shu stream point for pain) and same side San Cha San (Sj2) and Sj3. After a few more stretches and several minutes later the pain was completely gone.

The pain came back but much lower the next day and it will probably take a few more treatments along with plenty of stretching and exercises.

Sciatica Treatment Acupuncture Brisbane

 Sciatica Treatment Case Study using scalp acupuncture

Sciatica can be one of the most annoying pain people suffer from day in and day out. It affects people of any age or gender and is characterised with pain in the butt (literally) and a shooting pain that travels along the side of the leg or back of the hamstring. When the sciatic nerve becomes inflamed, it can become irritated and send a numb sensation down the leg all the way down to the pinky toe. It is an uncomfortable feeling and often times people are unable to get relief through conventional medicine.

Below is a case study of how instant scalp acupuncture can relieve pain. By placing needles alone the scalp of the head, we are able control the pain which gives the patient more mobility. From then, we do a series of stretches and exercises to make sure the pain stays away.Sciatica treatment using acupuncture takes 6-9 treatments but is definitely an option worth looking at. Below is a video example:
