Headache – Case 1 (Tention Headache) – Orange Acupuncture

Tx 1 :
This patient came with an on-going headache during his visit.

The headache happeneds about 4 times per week, for the past 3-4 months. Usually it’s a pressure-ache on his forehead and radiates to the side of his head and the back of his eyes. It usually stays for a few hours.

  • I used 1 point on his hand, and 3 points on his legs and feet. The headache was reduced instantly. I let him rest with those needles for 30 minutes. He left the clinic with no headache at all.

Tx 2 : 2 weeks later
He had 2 headaches in the past week. Intensity reduced and did not radiate to the back of his eyes.

  • Same Treatment

Tx 3 : 1 week later
Only 1 headache in the past week. Intensity reduced. No radiation.

  • Same treatment

Tx 4 : 1 week later
Just a few occurrences of uncomfortable feelings in the past week. Intensity level very low.

  • Same treatment.

This patient gave me a review said that his headache was gone after the last treatment.

Plantar Fasciitis Heel Pain , Foot Pain – Case 1 – Orange Acupuncture

Tx 1 :
This patient has been having right foot pain for 8 months. The pain is mainly around her heel and radiates to the bottom her whole foot
Almost anytime when she put her weight on her feet, the pain begins. She said that it feels like she’s stepping on glasses.

She has been taking pain killers, receiving treatment from physical therapist, and icing it 2-3 times a day. But nothing can really stop her pain.

  • I treat this patient with only 4 points. 2 on her left hand, 1 on her right foot.
    I ask her to walk around before and after I insert the needles. She told me right after I insert the needles, her pain decreased 50% and it stays that way until she left my clinic.

I told her it’s to be expected that the pain might come back a bit, but usually, it will be better than before.
And most importantly, do not apply ice anymore, it slows down the recovery.

Tx 2 : 1 day later
She comes in the next day because she’s going to leave the area soon.
She said the pain stays at 50% of the original, with no pain killers or icing.

  • I did the same treatment.

The pain was decreased to 10% even with walking.

Dizziness – case 1 – Orange Acupuncture

Tx 1:
This patient started to feel dizzy about 2 weeks ago. In his words “it feels like I’m always on a boat”. It feels ok when he’s sitting or laying down. But once he stands up, the dizziness begins.
He went to ER and did all kinds of check. He’s ear was fine, there’s some minor infection in his sinus area. They gave him some antibiotics but it didn’t help at all.

  • I insured some needles on his legs and elbows and let him rest. After 30 minutes, I removed the needles on his legs and ask him to walk around. His dizziness was significantly reduced. I further added some needles on his hand and leave it with him for another 10 minutes. He said the dizziness was reduced 90%.

Tx2: 2 days later
His dizziness is almost gone. Still feels a little bit off balance.

  • Same treatment

———————————-

He came back for other problems around 4 days after the Tx2. Said that his dizziness is all gone.
