a family member said, "could it be caused by a stiff neck? so, she came to our clinic and found us.

visual observation and palpation

on visual examination, she was walking without moving her neck to stabilize her neck.
she felt dizzy and had difficulty walking, and her face was pale.
palpation showed excessive tension in the neck muscles and back.


the 1st treatment was to remove the skin tension using thin acupuncture needles because of the strong skin tension.

1st to 3rd treatment: skin tension was removed, and her face color returned.
4th to 6th treatment: low fever disappeared. at the same time, various symptoms such as dizziness and staggering decreased by half.
7th treatment: continuing treatment now. there are waves, but the dizzy feeling is almost gone and is heading for improvement.


when a diagnosis is given, many people tend to associate the imaging diagnosis with the name of the disease, saying, "i have these symptoms because i had something wrong here.

for example...
(1) lower back pain → (2) then let's take an x-ray → (3) there is an area that is different from normal → (4) they assume that this is the cause of the pain → (5) they connect the imaging diagnosis with the pain, even though the original cause is the trigger point in the muscle.

this kind of case is very common.

in this case, the patient came to the clinic early because no problem was detected by diagnostic imaging.
therefore, the result was an early improvement.

however, in many cases, when the patient reaches a certain age and an x-ray or MRI is taken, there are parts that are not normal.

we need to get rid of the concept that "painful area = bad area".
we need to have a suspicion that "painful area may not be a bad area".
