CNMS (cervical neuromuscular syndrome) slight fever, dullness, dizziness, diarrhea, fatigue, headache

main complaint

since the winter before the last, she has been suffering from headache, diarrhea, low fever, and fatigue. she always has a fever of 37.5℃, feel dull and has difficulty concentrating.
When she went to the hospital, she was diagnosed with autonomic dysreflexia and has been taking medication every day.
she came to us for early treatment because it was interfering with her schoolwork.

interview, visual examination, and palpation

on visual examination, there was a rash on the neck and back, and skin sebum was also observed.
palpation revealed severe swelling in the neck.
after interviewing her, we determined that she had numerous autonomic nervous system symptoms, all of which were caused by stiffness in her neck.
we judged that the stiffness caused autonomic symptoms such as diarrhea and low fever, and the stiffness caused dullness, dizziness, and fatigue.
in this case, headache symptoms related to the semispinalis muscle had also appeared, so we focused on that area.


as it would not be good to continue taking medication in the future, we concentrated on treatment with the goal of early improvement.

the treatment focused on the muscles of the occipital bone attachment area, while also treating the back.
●the treatment area: semispinalis capitis, platysma capitis, trapezius, and rhomboid muscles

in specific, i concentrated on the middle part of the head semispinalis muscle, which was difficult to palpate with the fingers due to swelling

treatment Results

i'm sorry to be so passionate, but there is one thing that i always pay attention to when i make an appointment at my clinic.
that is that we are taking the patient's time.
we are just waiting at the clinic, so it is the patient's effort that makes them take the time to come. the longer you suffer from a complaint, the longer it may take to heal. the longer a person has been suffering from a complaint, the longer it takes to recover from it, and the longer it takes to get better, the more difficult it is to feel better.
if you have something that shows up as a numerical value, such as a slight fever, you can feel that you are getting better.
however, if you have a lot of other complaints, it may take a long time to feel better.
in other words, the patient is trying to come to the clinic... i think the therapist needs to understand this and try to have the patient come to the clinic with faith.

"You will be cured.

how many therapists cannot say so?
i always say, "Thank you for coming to my clinic" when the symptoms of the patients who believe in the therapist improve.
acupuncture is a field where you can hear voices.
once again, I'm sorry for the passionate talk.
