Hi this is Brent King – Acupuncturist here at Irvine Spine and Sport in Orange County California.
Today, we’re talking about pain and different types of pain.
Often times people come in with sharp stabbing pain. In Chinese Medicine, we consider that to be a blood stasis- the blood is not moving as it should. We would use this Acupuncture and some cases herbal medicine to help invigorate the blood so that the pain is alleviated.
Behind me you see the chart with all the 12 meridians that we use in Acupuncture. We would use a prescription maybe 5 or 6 needles to help move and invigorate the blood to alleviate that pain. If the pain is more dull and marginalized then we consider that more of what we called “Chest Stagnation”.
In most cases probably not as severe as blood stasis sharp stabbing pain. If you do have a blood stasis type of pain, you definitely want to address it. Come and see us would give you some acupuncture and we’ll alleviate those symptoms and make you a healthier person.
Thanks for stopping by and Have a great day. We’ll look forward seeing you soon!
