I would like to report on piercing acupuncture methods and therapeutic results obtained therewith in the treatment of tendovaginitis and tendonitis of the wrists, fingers and feet which arise from trauma, overwork, etc.
The treatment method involved the use of No. 32, 1.5-2.0 TSUN Chinese needles. Insertion was performed, piercing from the inferior ridge of the affected tendon. Needles were left stationary for a period of 10-15 minutes.
Sample Cases: Tendovaginitis of the abductor longus and abductor brevis
muscles 14 cases
Tendonitis of Achilles tendon 18 cases
The average number of treatments necessary in the cases in which cure was obtained was 2 to 5. In especially effective cases (13) 1 to 2 treatments were required; in chronic cases (2) to 15 treatments were necessary.
I will discuss the fact that with this treatment method as compared to previous methods, the circulation improvement in the affected area was increased, inflammation disappeared, and at the same time pain with movement was effectively relieved.
