Over 70% of patients who came to me already had traditional Western medical treatment from a few weeks to a few months, but had no obvious effects. Also about 10% of patients after only having acupuncture treatments, but had no significant effect who come to my office.

For the patients with no effective the main reason are the lumbar disc herniation is too large, or the older patient with long history associated with severe spinal stenosis. Except approximately 10% of patients required surgical treatment, A lof of Clinical practice and experience confirmed that, the treatment methods of using traditional Chinese medicine (acupuncture) and Western medicine achieved very good clinical results.
Male patient, 33-year-old dentist. The left L 4-5 intervertebral disc herniation, L5-S1 disc protrusion(MRI confirmed), left low back and leg pain with cruris and foot numbness, traditional western medical treatment 1 and a half months, a slight effect.

Lumbar disc herniation and protrusion is intervertebral disc degeneration, the fibrous annulus destructed and the nucleus herniated or the intact fibrous annulus with nucleus protruded and oppression or stimulate the nerve root and soft tissue induced inflammation, edema, adhesions, resulting in lower back and lower extremity radiating pain or numbness. In general, about 80 – 90% of patients with satisfactory results can be treated with non-surgical treatment, only 10 -15% of patients required surgical treatment.
Lumbar disc herniation and protrusion are belong to Arthralgia areas in traditional Chinese medicine, consist of 3 chi: wind, cold and wet. Cold chi belongs to yin, wet chi is heavy and muddy viscous, easily blocked human body meridian. When these bad chi invading the human body, the good chi(energy) can not go through in the meridian, then the meridian is blocked. When the meridian is blocked, the problems appear in the body, such as pain etc.. The acupuncture(akupunktura) stimulate the stations in the meridians, to solve the block and let the chi in meridians go through, then the people is healthy.
Acupunctural(akupunkturas) injection with medical drugs can make anti-inflammatory, reduce swelling, pain, dilate blood vessels, improve microcirculation and nutrition the nerves. The acupuncture and drugs injection together can significantly enhanced treatment result, thus in a short period of time shows analgesic effect. Combined by doing medical gymnastics and other traditional Western Medicine, using these methods to achieve better results.

Conclusion & Discussion:
Osteoarthritis of the knee is a high incidence disease. It is a “bi Zheng” range according to the traditional Chinese medicine. So it is important step to make the kidney to be tonic, Then we should give the injection to Shenshu acupuncture point. Puncture Zusanli to keep the “Qi and Blood” to be tonic and to strengthen the spleen and reduce the moisture. According to holographic mechanism we also choose Quchi point. Glucosamine sulfate is the neccessary material for chondrocyte metablism. Chondrocyte use glucosamine to compose mucopolysaccharide which plays important roles in composing cartilage matrix. Mucopolysaccharide and collangen fibril type II together build the function and structure frames of cartilage. Glucosamine sulfate is not only anti-inflamation and stop pain but also slow down the development of OA. Vitamin c is an oxidant, and play a role in composing the collagen fibril type II. There is another important reason to influence the clinical result of the patient. If patients have only 1-2 years history of disease, then the treatment is easier and getting better result than the patients who suffered from more than 10 years of this problem. Acupuncture point injection have both mechanistic stimulation and drug’s chemistic stimulation, two function combined together to get better treatment result than the single traditional niddle treatment.’,”,”,’publish’,’closed’,’open’,”,’113′,”,”,’2013-03-08 08:56:40′,’2013-03-08 08:56:40′,”,0,’http://akupunktura-drxiu.hu/?p=113′,0,’post’,”,0),(131,1,’2013-03-08 08:54:11′,’2013-03-08 08:54:11′,’
“Traditional Chinese medicine (Acupuncture)(Akupunktura) and western medicine combined to treat a patient of around joint soft tissue adhesion after carpal fractures (case report)” Dr. Xiu Wei 1089 Budapest, Vajda Peter u, 43a
Case report: The female patient, In July, 2010 she was robbed and fall down,with right carpal distal radius intra-articular comminuted fracture. Treated with open reduction and internal fixation, she was discharged from the hospital with external plaster cast .But 3 – 4 weeks after because of the fracture place re-dislocation, she had to have the second operation, using external fixator to treat this dislocation. After removing the external fixation, her carpal movement was severely limited. Then she got rehabilitation treatment such as medical gymnastics, physiotherapy in the hospital. From Oct. 2010 – Feb.2011 more than four month continuous rehabilitation treatment, she had no significant change in her carpal movement. The patient is right-hand user, she could not use her right hand to put food in her mouth, could not clean the anus with right hand, could not do the house works. The patient was very suffering. The doctor also suggested that she should start to train using her left hand. Whe the patient came to me, by examination, her right carpal movement: Dorsalflexion 20 degree, volarflexion 0 degree, radial and ulnar deviation 0 degree, forearm supination and pronation 0 degree. Because of the long time fixation and limited mobility of the forearm and wrist, also Sudeck syndrome performed by RTG. After two courses of treatment in 3 Months with traditional Chinese acupuncture(akupunktura) and Western medicine, the patient had great improvement, the movement in her carpal and forearm close to normal, she can eat and do housework with her right hand, the function almost like normal. Her right carpal and forearm movement: Dorsalflexion 50 degree, volarflexion 60 degrees, radial deviation 20 degree, ulnar deviation 40 degree, forearm supination 70 degree, pronation 60 degree. The patient is very satisfied, and after 1 year follow up, her carpal movement is almost totalyl normal. Method: Discussion: Around joint soft tissue adhesion, the pathological changes are slow circulation and stasis in the venous and lymphatic tube, tissue edema. Exudation of serous fibrin, can get formation of adhesions, and even the muscles contracture in the area of joint capsule, synovialplica as well as muscles and ligaments. During the treatment, stimulate the acupuncture points can play promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis and smoothing flow of the meridians, while acupuncture injection with medicine both give the drug effects and acupuncture(akupunktura) effect. Plus medical gymnastics, physiotherapy, those methods together play multi-function, to harmony the body in good situation, to soften the scar tissue and free the adhesions. pentoxifylline can expand the peripheral blood vessels, to promote the local blood circulation, and to improve the nutrition of the joints and surrounding soft tissues. Glucosamine in the body is decomposed into amino acid, can be converted into galactose, can be converted into chondroitin, can promote to produce proteoglycans and collagen, Supply the synovial fluid, lubricate the joints, and provide the necessary materials to the cartilage in healing of the injured joints. In human body, 1/3 of total protein is consist of by Collagen, they generate connective tissue and Constitute the body skeleton, Determines the elasticity of the skin, such as bones, blood vessels, ligaments, and contribute to the healing human wounds. Calcitonin directly inhibits osteoclast absorbing the bone, to reduce the bone releasing calcium, to promote the bone absorbing calcium from the blood, so the serum calcium becomes low. Calcium gluconate supplies calcium, together with Calcitonin often use in the treatment of osteoporosis.
