her neck becomes numb when she moves her head back and forth.
sometimes her whole arm goes numb even when she raises her hand.

she came to our clinic because there was no improvement in her condition no matter where she went.

visual observation and palpation

visual observation showed severe swelling in the neck and the height of the scapula was different.
on palpation, there was nothing wrong with the area that could be touched with the fingers, so we treated her with acupuncture needles while searching for deep points.

autonomic neuropathy after a car accident

in whiplash after a car accident, trigger points are formed in the deep muscles of the neck.
when trigger points are formed in the deep part of the body, external approaches do not work and only acupuncture, which is a surgical treatment, can directly approach the affected area.
when trigger points are formed in deep muscles, autonomic nervous system symptoms are strong, and the patient may suffer from symptoms for a long time.
i have suffered from many symptoms in the past, and i am glad that i was able to improve like this.
