Written Jan 10, 2010, read 1608 times since then.

 

  • Average # of treatments needed: Significant pain relief and improved range of motion usually noted in first treatment, long-term carryover after 2 – 10 treatments, depending on severity.
  • Frequency of treatments: 2 – 3 times/week
  • Physical symptoms: Chronic pain in the low back, sacro-iliac region or hip, with or without radiation down legs
  • Methods: Use the following microcurrent electro-acupuncture techniques in sequence, testing pain level and pain-free range of motion after each technique. In this case testing means asking the patient to move in a way that elicits the pain. This can take the form of sitting down and standing up, bending the body, twisting the body, etc. Total treatment time required: 16 minutes, up to half can be unattended.
  • Technique #1: Circling The Dragon – use microcurrent probe local technique to treat local ah-shi points in the area of pain preferably with simultaneous Blue or Purple color light. Time required: 2 minutes, attended
  • Technique #2: Auricular Micro-Macro – create polarized circuit between epicenter of pain and corresponding auricular point using polarized microcurrent probes, preferably with simultaneous Blue or Purple color light. Time required: 2 minutes, attended
  • Technique #3: Reverse Body Image – create polarized circuit between affected low back pain area and corresponding RBI points in upper chest. Time required: 2 minutes, attended. If there is radiation down leg, add circuit between radiation area and relevant acu-points on back of opposite hand, and low back and distal leg points. Use + polarity on pain area, - polarity on distal points.
  • Technique #4: Interferential flooding treatment – unattended therapy using four microcurrent pad electrodes to surround affected area, including radiation down leg. May be used with simultaneous sotai, tuina, manipulation or therapeutic exercise. Time required: 10 minutes, most of it unattended

Long-term treatment results can be enhanced by adding root Internal treatment using microcurrent and color light Mu-Shu treatment or chakra balancing.

  • Microcurrent settings used: Acutron Mentor Probe presets 1 and 2 and IF # 5, or these specific settings:
  • Probes: Intensity: 75 μA
  • Hz: 10 - 5
  • Waveform: Square
  • Mode: 2:1
  • Polarity: Biphasic, then Polarized
  • Timer: 6 seconds per cycle
  • Color Light: Blue or Purple for severe pain
  • Pads: Intensity: 100 μA
  • Hz: 0.3 – 100 Hz
  • Waveform: Sine, Slope
  • Mode: Ramp Hz
  • Polarity: Biphasic
  • Timer: 10 minutes
  • Milliamp-microamp combination therapy can improve results in more severe cases.

Other relevant therapies: Therapeutic yoga, massage and physical therapy, chiropractic manipulation, herbal linaments and internal constitutional formulas
