PAIN


PAIN
An unpleasant localised sensation that can range from mild discomfort to sever agony. Mostly, pain results from stimulation of special sensory nerve receptors in the skin or within the body by tissue injury or disease or by stretching or spasm of muscle. The sensation of pain has the important role of drawing attention to the fact that something is wrong forcing the sufferer to look for and correct the cause. Usually the scene, nature and intensity of pain offer an indication of its cause and importance. The perception of pain varies, both between people and in the same person at the different times.
refered pain is observed in areas other than the damaged part of the body. Phantom pain feels as if it comes from a limb or part that has been amputated,because that is the way the brain interprets impulses from nerves in the stump.
Some common particular pain syndromes ;

 Physical Evaluation : 
 Disease is often associated with signs of inflammatory disease,anemia,raised c-reactive protein and erythrocyte sedimentation rate.
 The syndromes of Pain may effectively be overcome through SuJok which itself is a new stage in the development of Oriental medicine. Highly effective for treatment, easy and accessible to learn, simple to apply, SuJok methods have attracted much attention to and interest in this system.  One of the important features of this system, that is, the fast-coming effect of the method. SuJok therapy extremely quickly arrests PAIN syndromes of various etiology. Moreover, there has been gathered a much bulk of observations that the SuJok method quickly copes with critical states – shocks, preinfarctions, preinsults. Under such extreme conditions, needling was not always used. It was enough to massage correspondence points for a victim to become conscious or to remove intolerable pain.  Since the SuJok method has a fast effect, the rate of pain-killing was studied during the treatment session. Within different time periods since the beginning of the session, the patient assessed the percentage of decrease of pain sensations as compared with the first state which was accepted as 100%. A fast and effective removal of the pain syndrome makes the treatment period shorter and the patient’s cure quicker.
 Therefore, application of SuJok therapy in combination with color, seeds,  byol magnets or therapy with acupuncture in miniature form of hands or feet allows to enhance the effectiveness of traditional therapies and get longer remission periods in pain syndromes.

Pain


PAIN
Pain ; Physical pain is a common occurrence for many, one of the most common symptoms complained of by the patient. Apart from a thorough understanding of the diagnosis symptoms and signs, the nature and location of the pain must be observed thoroughly. Differentiation of nature of the pain is significant for deducing its etiology, while identification of the locality of the pain helps find diseased organs and meridians;
Acupuncture for Pain – is being studied for its efficacy in alleviating many kinds of pain. There are promising findings in most of the conditions. Pain is a feeling that triggered in the nervous system. It may be sharp or dull, off-and-on or steady, localized (such as back pain) or all over (such as muscle aches from the flu). Sometimes, pain alerts us to injuries and illnesses that need attention. Although pain usually goes away once the underlying problem is addressed, it can last for weeks, months, or even years. Chronic pain may be due to an ongoing condition (such as arthritis) or to abnormal activity in pain-sensing regions of the brain, or the cause may not be known.
Acupuncture has been studied for a range of pain conditions, such as postoperative dental pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, headache, low-back pain, menstrual cramps, myofascial pain, osteoarthritis, and tennis elbow and more. 
Nature of the pain;
Distending pain: Distending pain manifesting as severe distension, mild pain and moving from one place to another place, organ or place of the body is a typical sign of energy stagnation. It most of the time occurs in the chest, epigastric, hypochondriac and abdominal regions. But if having headache with a distending sensation in the head is due to up disturbance by fire and heat.
Pricking pain: Pricking pain, sharp  and fixed in place, a sign of stagnation of blood. It usually occurs in the chest, epigastric, hypochondriac and lower abdominal regions.
Weighty pain: It occurs with a heavy sensation in the body is a sign of damp blocking energy and blood, as damp is characterized by heaviness. It is often present in the head, four limbs and lumbar region.
Colicky pain: Colicky pain is a sign of abrupt obstruction of the energy by real pathogenic factors.
Pulling pain: Pulling pain which is considered to be spasmodic and short in duration often relates to the disorders of the liver. It is normally caused by the meridian liver.
Burning pain: Pain with a burning sensation and preference for coolness often occurs in the hypochondriac regions on both sides and epigastric region. It results from invasion of the collaterals by pathogenic fire and heat or from excessive yang heat due to yin deficiency.
Cold pain: Such pain with a cold sensation and preference for warmth often occurs in the head, lumbar, epigastric and abdominal regions. It is caused by pathogenic cold blocking the collaterals or lack of warmth and nourishment in the Yin-Yang organs and meridians due to deficiency of yang energy.
Dull pain: Such pains are not so severe. It is considered to  be bearable lingering and may last for a long time. It is usually present in cold syndromes of deficiency type.
Hollow pain: Pain with a hollow sensation is caused by deficiency of blood leading to emptiness of vessels and retardation of blood circulation.
Neuropathic: Pain caused by damage to or malfunction of the nerves themselves. The peripheral nerve system includes all the nerves that lead to and from the spinal cord. These nerves send pain signals to the brain. If they’re injured, neuropathic pain may develop—pain caused by injury to the nerves themselves.
Nociceptive: Nociceptors are the receptors in the nervous system that get activated when there’s an injury. If there isn’t an injury from outside the nervous system, the nociceptors aren’t active. Nociceptive pain, then, is pain caused by an injury to something other than the nerves. In chronic pain, though, the nociceptors may still be sending pain messages long after the original injury has healed. The various types of chronic nociceptive pain are:
Somatic – Soma means “body,” so somatic pain comes from injuries to the outer body—skin, muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, bones, etc. It’s generally easy to find where somatic pain comes from, and the pain can be sharp or throbbing (depends on what part of your body is injured).
Bone pain is a somatic pain. Bones can ache. If the bones have been weakened by another condition, such as cancer or osteoporosis, then you can have a very achy and very intense dull pain. Bone pain can also be acute: if you break a bone, such as, that is acute pain. If the bone heals but you still have a throbbing pain (it may be constant or it may come and go), that can be considered chronic bone pain. Muscle pain is a somatic pain. Chronic muscle pain is more than a strained muscle. Your muscles may have a chronic muscle spasm that causes them to be tense. This form of muscle overload can cause long-lasting pain, especially in the back. Muscle pain can also develop as part of certain chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia.
Visceral – viscera are internal organs—specifically those contained in abdomen and chest cavity. The stomach is an example of a visceral organ. Not every organ has nociceptors, so not every internal organ can send pain messages if it’s been injured (the lungs, such as, don’t have nociceptors).
  However, if you injure an organ that has nociceptors, you will probably feel a deep, achy pain, and it will be hard to pinpoint where the pain is coming from. Visceral pain can also have referred pain. That means that the brain can’t distinguish the pain from the organ from pain from another part of your body. For example, if you have a kidney problem, your low back may be painful.
 Figuring out what type of chronic pain you have may be a difficult process, especially since many types of chronic pain may not come from any noticeable injury or disease. Also, since pain is such a subjective experience, you must be thorough in describing your pain to the doctor. Working together, you and the doctor can figure out the best way to deal with your chronic pain.
Chronic pain falls into a couple of broad categories. These categories help doctors treat the pain because every type must be approached and treated differently. The generally accepted forms of chronic pain are: neuropathic pain: Pain caused by damage to or malfunction of the nerves themselves. nociceptive pain: Nociceptors are the receptors in the nervous system that get activated when there’s an injury. If there isn’t an injury from outside the nervous system, the nociceptors aren’t active. Nociceptive pain, then, is pain caused by an injury to something other than the nerves. In chronic pain, though, the nociceptors may still be sending pain messages long after the original injury has healed.
 However, if you injure an organ that has nociceptors, you will probably feel a deep, achy pain, and it will be hard to pinpoint where the pain is coming from. Visceral pain can also have referred pain. That means that the brain can’t distinguish the pain from the organ from pain from another part of your body. For example, if you have a kidney problem, your low back may be painful.
Figuring out what type of chronic pain you have may be a difficult process, especially since many types of chronic pain may not come from any noticeable injury or disease. Also, since pain is such a subjective experience, you must be thorough in describing your pain to the doctor. Working together, you and the doctor can figure out the best way to deal with your chronic pain.
Pain is a very subjective experience, though, so we can’t say something as categorical as “All chronic pain patients will feel this way.” It is possible to say that chronic pain takes on many forms. It can be: throbbing, aching, shooting, electric, burning, sharp, feeling stiff, feeling tight, feeling sore 
Chronic pain can lead to other problems, especially social and emotional ones. Chronic pain may: lead to sleeplessness, drain you of energy, lead to depression, make you not want to do activities you typically enjoy, weaken your immune system because so much of your body’s energy is spent dealing with the pain.  A lot of these other problems build off each other, so you may hear the phrase “vicious cycle” when talking about chronic pain. For example: The pain makes it difficult to sleep at night, so you’re excessively tired the next day. You don’t want to go to work—or do anything else—because you’re so tired. Because you aren’t as active, you lose self-esteem and start to withdraw even more from your social life.
Locality of the pain:
Headache: Head is the meeting place of all the yang meridians and brain is the sea of marrow. Energy and blood of all organs go up into the head. If the pathogenic factors invade the head and block the clear yang, or if stagnation of energy and blood in endogenous diseases blocks the meridians and deprives the brain of the nourishment, headache will ensure. In case of deficiency of energy and blood, head fails to be nourished, and the sea of marrow becomes empty; headache due to this is of deficiency type. Headache due to disturbance of the clear yang by the pathogenic factor is mostly of excess type.
Chest pain: As the heart and lung resides in the chest, chest pain indicates the pathological changes of the heart and lung.
Hypochondriac pain: The hypochondriac region is traversed by the liver and gallbladder meridians. Obstruction or undernourishment of these meridians may produce hypochondriac pain.
Epigastric pain: Epigastric refers to the upper abdomen in which the stomach situated. It is divided into three regions,namely upper,middle and lower. Epigastric pain may result from invasion of the stomach by pathogenic cold,retention of food in the stomach or invasion of the stomach by the liver energy.
Abdominal pain: Abdomen is divided into upper abdomen, lower and sides of the lower abdomen. The upper abdomen refers to the areas above the umbilicus and pertains to the spleen. The area below the umbilicus is the lower abdomen and pertains to the kidney, bladder and large-small intestines and uterus. Both sides of the lower abdomen is traversed by the Liver meridian.
Abdominal pain caused by retention of cold, accumulation of heat, stagnation of energy, blood, retention of food or parasitic diseases is excess , while that caused by deficiency of energy, blood or deficiency of cold is deficiency in nature.
Lumbago: The kidney resides the lumbar region. Lumbago may result from obstruction of the meridians in the local area, besides deficiency of the kidney failing to nourish the lumbar region is often the cause.
Pain in the four limbs: Pain in the four limbs may involve joints, muscles or meridians. It is caused by retardation of energy and blood circulation due to invasion of the exogenous pathogenic factors.
Generally, persistent pain in a recent disease or pain which is aggravated by pressure indicates syndromes of excess type. Intermittent pain in a prolonged illness or pain which is alleviated by pressure often occurs in syndromes of deficiency type.
PAIN – one  shouldn’t ignore
No one wants it, yet it’s the body’s way of getting the attention when something is wrong:
Worst headache Get medical attention immediately. “If having cold, it could be a sinus headache. But possibility of having brain hemorrhage or brain tumor. With any pain, unless you’re sure of what caused it, get it checked out.”
Pain or Discomfort in the Chest, Throat, Jaw, Shoulder, Arm, or Abdomen
Chest pain could be pneumonia or a heart attack. But be aware that heart conditions typically appear as discomfort, not pain. “Don’t wait for pain. “Heart patients talk about pressure. They’ll clinch their fist and put it over their chest or say it’s like an elephant sitting on their chest.” The discomfort associated with heart disease could also be in the upper chest, throat, jaw, left shoulder or arm, or abdomen and might be accompanied by nausea.
Pain in Lower Back or Between Shoulder Blades “Most often its arthritis,” Other possibilities include a heart attack or abdominal problems. “One danger is aortic dissection, which can appear as either a nagging or sudden pain. People who are at risk have conditions that can change the integrity of the vessel wall. These would include high blood pressure, a history of circulation problems, smoking, and diabetes.”
Severe Abdominal Pain, Still have your appendix? Don’t flirt with the possibility of a rupture. Gallbladder and pancreas problems, stomach ulcers, and intestinal blockages are some other possible causes of abdominal pain that need attention.
Calf Pain One of the lesser known dangers is deep vein thrombosis(DVT),a blood clot that can occur in the leg’s deep veins,and it can be life-threatening. “The danger is that a piece of the clot could break loose and cause pulmonary embolism[a clot in the lungs]. Sometimes there’s just swelling without pain,”If you have swelling and pain in your calf muscles, see a doctor immediately.”
Burning Feet or Legs  “In some people who don’t know they have diabetes, peripheral neuropathy could be one of the first signs,”It’s a burning or pins-and-needles sensation in the feet or legs that can show nerve damage.”
Vague, Combined, or Medically Unexplained Pains”Various painful, physical symptoms are common in depression,”Patients will have vague complaints of headaches, abdominal pain, or limb pain, sometimes in combination.”
There’s more to depression than deterioration of the quality of life. “It has to be treated aggressively before it causes structural changes in the brain.”
SuJok acupuncture is a new stage in the development of Oriental medicine. Highly effective for treatment, easy and accessible to diagnose, simple to apply. SuJok methods have attracted much attention to and interest in this system in Russia, one of the important features of this system. That is, the fast-coming effect of the method. SuJok therapy extremely quickly arrests pain syndromes of various etiology. Moreover, there has been gathered a much bulk of observations that the SuJok method quickly copes with critical states – shocks, pre infarctions, preinsults. Under such extreme conditions, needling was not always used. It was enough to massage correspondence points for a victim to become conscious or to remove intolerable pain.  Since the SuJok method has a fast effect, the rate of pain-killing was studied during the treatment session. Within different time periods since the beginning of the session, the patient assessed the percentage of decrease of his pain sensations as compared with the first state which was accepted as 100%.  A fast and effective removal of the pain syndrome makes the treatment period shorter and the patients cure quicker.
One must opt for acupuncture SuJok. The beauty of acupuncture ‘SuJok’ is that each treatment is catered to the needs of an individual patient. Acupuncture’s energy concept on the hand is chosen for the overall well-being with the aim of increasing circulation of the blood and vital energy.
Undoubtedly, one may get positive results in pain syndromes, through the energy concept of acupuncture ‘SuJok’.

GALL STONES


GALL STONES
Solid bodies that form in the gall bladder from constituents of bile such as cholesterol, bile pigment, mucin and calcium.  Gall stones a small sac found just under the liver. It stores bile made by liver. Bile helps to digest fats. Bile moves from gallbladder to small intestine through tubes called cystic duct and common bile duct. The most common symptom is pain in stomach area or in the upper right part of the belly, under the ribs.The size of gall stones ranges from  grit like to several centimetres in width.  There may be a single stone but more often there are many.
CAUSE: The cause of gall stones, also called cholelithiasis is uncertain. It has been suggested that bile containing more than the usual amount of cholesterol, a normal bile constituent and a smaller than usual amount of bile acid may be likely to lead to stone formation. Production of this type of bile is an inherited tendency, which would explain why gall stones often run in families. Other possible factors include inflammation or infection of gall bladder, increased bile pigment formation and hormonal and other genetic factors.
INCIDENCE: Gall stones  are common in men and women.
PAIN: It may be develop suddenly in center of upper belly and spread to right upper back or shoulder-blade area. It is usually hard to get comfortable; moving around does not make pain go away.  It also prevent from taking normal or deep breaths. Normally it begins at night and be severe enough to wake you and mostly occur after meals. There are many other conditions that cause similar symptoms,including heartburn, pain caused by heart attack, and liver problems. Stomach flu(gastroenteritis) and food poisoning also can cause symptoms similar to gall stones.
Pancreatitis: Pancreatitis is an inflammation of pancreas, which is an organ in the upper abdomen that makes insulin and digestive enzymes. Pancreatitis may cause sudden, severe abdominal pain. It is most commonly caused by excessive use of alcohol or by blockage of tube(duct) that leads from pancreas to beginning of small intestine(duodenum),usually by a gall stone. Other causes include an infection,injury, or certain medicines. It may develop suddenly(acute),or it may be a long-term,recurring(chronic) problem, but may develop complications such as bleeding,infection,or organ failure may develop. The pancreas is an organ in upper belly, behind stomach and close to spine. It makes digestive enzymes that body uses to break down and process food. The pancreas also makes insulin, hormone that regulates sugar (glucose) in the blood.
SYMPTOMS: The most common symptoms are bouts of moderate upper abdominal pain or in upper right part of belly, sometimes brought on by a fatty meal. Pain may spread to right upper back or shoulder-blade area. Sometimes pain is more severe. It may be steady, or it may come and go. Or it may get worse even after eating something heavy.  When gall stones keep blocking bile duct,there is a pain with fever and chills, or the skin or whites of your eyes may turn yellow. Having stones in bile duct increases the chance of having swollen pancreas (pancreatitis). These symptoms may also be a sign of an infected gallbladder. A stone wedged in the ducts that drain the gall bladder causes the agonising pain of biliary COLIC.  If the stone blocks the common bile duct which drains bile from both the liver and gall bladder there may be jaundice as well as colic. A stone below the junction of the common bile duct and the pancreatic duct can, in addition cause acute PANCREATITIS.  However many people with gall stones have no symptoms, the stones may be discovered by chance if abdominal x-ray or ultrasound is performed for other reasons.  Symptoms of Gallbladder disease simultaneously be of steady, severe pain in the upper abdomen that increases rapidly.  pain in the back between the shoulder blades. pain under the right shoulder. nausea or vomiting abdominal bloating recurring intolerance of fatty foods colic belching gas indigestion.
The current belief is that cholesterol stones are the result of bile that is made of too much cholesterol or bilirubin and not enough bile salts. Cholesterol stones may also form when the gallbladder fails to properly empty during the digestive process. But those who develop pigment stones most often include people who have cirrhosis of the liver, biliary tract infections, and hereditary blood disorders that include sickle-cell anemia. These are all conditions that lead to the formation of too much bilirubin.
TREATMENT: Surgery to remove the gall bladder(cholecystectomy) is most commonly advised if opt through the medicinal concept. But if opting through alternative treatment particularly SuJok acupuncture, one may get positive effective results.  The beauty of acupuncture is that each treatment is catered to the needs of an individual patient.  SuJok is a component of Onnuri medicine, and involves inserting of very thin, fine, metal needles into the specific ‘correspondence points’ located on the miniature form of hands or foot, along the meridians pathways along which Qi travels,connecting the surface of the body energetically with the internal organs, it’s the energy concept chosen for overall well-being with the objective of increasing circulation of the blood and vital energy. The remission of the disease can be achieved and medicaments therapy simultaneously can be reduced or eliminated altogether.  The course of treatment is definitely uneventful.

BACK PAIN


BACK PAIN
The spine is a very complex structure that is never still, and it is involved in the slightest movement, including breathing. Our upright posture puts additional stress on the neck and the small of the back, which are the commonest sites of backache. Most people suffer from it at some time in their lives. The back pain may be sharp and sudden or an ache may develop gradually over several hours or during the night. There may b an obvious cause such as an injury, unaccustomed activity, strain during strenuous movement such as lifting, digging, twisting the trunk or jolting from travelling over rough roads. But back pain can begin after what seems to be a trivial twist or stretch or it may bear no relation to any particular activity. Pain and stiffness are usually confined to one region of the back.
The backaches that affect otherwise well people are the result of minor strains or injures to the joints between the vertebrae and their surrounding ligaments and muscles. The main source of pain and stiffness is the protective spasm of muscles around the injured part. When back pain is the result of a minor strain, it can overcome very effectively in a short span of time. This type of backache is seldom a symptom of serious disease but is a warning that care must be taken to protect the back from further injury and thus prevent chronic pain and disability. The treatment for acute symptoms of uncomplicated back strain consists of rest. If one feels pain while on rest or if it is severe enough to restrict most activities or there is no improvement in a week’s time, it needs more investigation. Chronic back pain associated with other symptoms such as fever should always be investigated as it may be a sign of disease of the vertebrae or spinal joints and occasionally may be caused by disorders of the abdominal or pelvic organs particularly the kidneys and reproductive organs.
Spinal nerves have motor fibers and sensory fibers. The motor fibers innervate certain muscles, while the sensory fibers innervate certain areas of skin. A skin area innervated by the sensory fibers of a single nerve root is known as a dermatome. A group of muscles primarily innervated by the motor fibers of a single nerve root is known as a myotome. Although slight variations do exist, dermatome and myotome patterns of distribution are relatively consistent from person to person.
Myotomes – Relationship between the spinal nerve & muscle
Dermatomes – Relationship between the spinal nerve & skin.
Each muscle in the body is supplied by a particular level or segment of the spinal cord and by its corresponding spinal nerve. The muscle, and its nerve make up a myotome.
One should follow the followings when driving long distances;
 • Travel slowly over rough roads.
 • Ensure that the vehicle has well padded seats, which will help reduce the amount of vibration being passed up the spine.
 • Support the lower back with a small cushion or lumbar roll.
 • Tilt the seat backwards to about 110 angel to reduce vertical pressure on the spine.
 • One should change the posture frequently to encourage circulation and prevent muscle tiredness.
 • Make sure that the distance from the seat to the foot pedals suits your legs.
 • Take heavy objects out of back pockets to reduce twisting forces on the lower spine.
 • Take care when getting in and out of vehicles. Sit sideways on the seat first then lift your legs in and rotate your body into the travelling position and do the opposite when getting out. Avoid sudden bending or twisting movements.
 • Reduce driving time. Frequent stops help. As often as possible get out, stretch your back and walk around a little.
 • Exercise regularly to help strengthen lower back muscles.
 • Invest in power steering which reduces strain on the lower back.
 Common sites of back pain;
 
-Pain in the neck may be caused by osteoarthritis of neck joint, injuries such as whiplash or neck muscle tension.
 -Pain and tenderness around shoulder blade is a feature of fibromyalgia syndrome.
 -Upper back pain is common in osteoporosis and may also occur in spinal osteoarthritis.
 -Pain in the small of the back may indicate kidney disease such as pyelonephritis.
 -Lower back pain and stiffness may be caused by muscle, joint, ligament or disc injury.
 -Pain and tenderness at the tail end of the spine can result from injury to the coccyx from falling onto the buttocks.
 -Sciatica, caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve is pain in the buttock that spreads down the back of the leg to the foot.
 Reducing back strain;
 
-When lifting heavy objects, keep your back straight and  bend your knees. Do not stoop, if the object is too heavy, ask someone to help.
 -At the desk, keep your back straight and rest both feet on the floor. A well designed office chair provides good back support.
 -Your load should be equally distributed if possible when you are carrying bags.
SPINE is a two way conducting system, because it consists both descending(send motor impulses from brain to peripheral nervous); and ascending (transmit sensor impulses from sense organs and body receptor into brain) nervous tracts. The spinal cord, being the central part of the bone system, is controlled by the branch Hotness energy of the basic Coldness energy. Tonification of subbranch Heat in branch Hotness of the basic UM-Coldness energy has a positive effect on the spinal column in general. For local problems of a particular part of the spinal column a sub-subbranch treatment is to be chosen. With energy concept of SuJok ACUPUNCTURE one can get effective positive results in a few initial sessions, and course of treatment is only on the hands in miniature form of the body.  Pain Management using ACUPUNCTURE provides excellent treatment for acute or chronic pain. Acupuncture releases endorphins[our body’s own pain-killers] from the anterior pituitary gland and stimulates immune response.  It reduces inflammation and increase blood circulation. Patients who had taken analgesics before acupuncture therapy were able to either discontinue them completely, or reduce their doses dramatically.  If you have experienced trauma and pain from an accident, it also supports the use of acupuncture for after-treatment of accident patients. Acupuncture presents a valuable therapeutic option – resulting in reduced pain, decreased edema, and increased range of motion and reduction of long standing complaints following accidents.  The course of treatment is definitely uneventful. ONE MUST OPT for it, as there is no side effect at all and care and cure effect is on miniature form of hands.

SCIATICA


  1. SCIATICA
  2.  Treatment through ONNURI encompasses, Sujok Acupuncture, Onnuri Acupuncture, Onnuri Auricular therapy (done in External Ear), Scalp therapy links (both upper & lower limbs). Apart from the original oriental principles newer principles like Six ki theory, Eight origin principles, Chakra therapy, Twist therapy, Meditation with Smile and Diamond Structure principle, Triorigin M particle theory principle and triorigin Sequence theory etc. All the above integrated concepts of alternative medicine, whereby no medicine is ever recommended during treatment process at all. In fact, we think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor. IF YOU have a belief in ENERGY concepts, You have to belief that energy can go up to any extent be it PHYSICAL. ENVIRONMENTAL. EMOTIONAL. SOUL level. REASONING level. and absolute or INFINITY level,means absence or beginning and end of ENERGY. It is similar to according to scientific concept of Atom : Neuto-almost without mass and perfect neutral particle. Hetero-ELECTRON-moving actively,outskirt of nucleus with the intention to go away from the original source. Homo-proton, stay inside the nucleus, centre of atom with no movement or restricted movement with the intention to return back to the original. Neutro-neutron, created by unification of 3 particles, ie Neuto, Hetero and Homo. HERNIATED INTERVERTEBRAL DISC If a person is suffering, often pain began after lifting lower extremities. Pain usually radiates into legs or buttocks. Pain also intensified by coughing, sneezing. Decreased ankle or knee deep tendon reflexes; straight leg raising usually causes back pain. Sciatica refers to pain along the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve extends from the pelvis down the back of each leg to the foot. This large nerve controls feeling and movement in the leg and foot. The most common cause of sciatica is pressure on one of the nerve roots that form the sciatic nerve. For example, pressure from a ruptured inter vertebral disc in the lower spine may cause sciatica. In such cases, part of the tissue that makes up the disc protrudes from the vertebrae of the spine and presses on a nerve root. The person feels pain in the leg and foot, as well as in the spine. Treatment for most cases of sciatica consists of manipulation, analgesics, bed rest and certain exercises. In some cases, surgery is required to relieve the pressure on the nerve. BUT, if you are having treatment through ACUPUNCTURE, particularly with the above concepts, You may start feeling improvement sometimes even from the day one session. Thus, you can eliminate your sciatica pain. Acquire Crucial Knowledge To CURE SCIATICA PAIN and have a normal, healthy, and smile life!
