Patient with neck pain due to sleeping in wrong position came in to get acupuncture.
He never often gets neck pain from sleeping wrong position, and according to him it goes away within a day or two normally.
However, this time it didn’t seem to go away easily even after a week of rest.
He had a limited range of motion on left side along with severe pain level at 8 or 9 out of 10. Point, SI3 was used for the pain and immediately the pain was reduced by 5. 1 cun above LV2 was inserted as well and needles were remained for about 20 minutes.
When we took out the needle, the pain level went down to 3 out of 10. With only 2 needles, and within 20 minutes, the pain was subsided by more than 50%.
Patient did come back one more time after that treatment to eliminate the pain completely, and it was successful.
