Acupuncture treatment for facial paralysis
Winter is coming and the weather is getting cold. In this season, we need to pay more attention to the occurrence of facial paralysis. Cold is one of the reasons that result in facial paralysis. Recently, a journalist visited Dr. Chen Decheng acupuncture clinic and met a few patients suffering from facial paralysis being treated. She saw Dr. Chen first used acupuncture needles in patients with ordinary ipsilateral facial acupuncture, and then hit the local Plum Buckle, finally pulling facial cupping flash. The whole process takes about 40 minutes. Paralysis symptoms of all patients were significantly improved immediately.
A white lady told us that due to her postpartum cold, she had suffered from facial paralysis for three months. In the first two months she accepted acupuncture and physiotherapy treatment at another clinic, but her condition did not change significantly, and later she was introduced to come here. She said she did not expect that she feel significantly different after the first treatment. At that time she is able to close the left eye, so she was very happy. Because of facial paralysis, her left eye had not been closed. Walking often extravagant eyes and tears, very uncomfortable. In addition, eating when the food is always stuck in between the cheek teeth, while drinking water will leak from the ipsilateral mouth. These directly affect the life. Now she has been in Dr. Chen clinic for treatment four times, these symptoms were significantly improved.
When the journalist asked the causes of facial paralysis, Dr. Chen said these patient are peripheral facial paralysis, also known as “facial paralysis”. The general Chinese MDs believe that due to lack of righteousness, Meridian emptiness, no guard outside, cold evil come inside the human body and violated the meridians, causing blockage of blood and facial muscle dystrophy, thus cause facial paralysis. Therefore, cold evil is the main reason for facial paralysis. Western Doctors believe that facial paralysis is caused more by mastoiditis, or otitis media, resulting in facial nerve tissue ischemia, edema, and pressure in the nerves. Catching cold is the main incentive.
When it comes to the treatment of facial paralysis, Dr. Chen Decheng said that currently the western doctors consider acupuncture therapy is the most effective method for the treatment of facial paralysis. In the recommended 43 kinds of diseases acupuncture of the World Health Organization, facial paralysis is one of the most important diseases. Acupuncture treatment has short course, fast effect, affordable, but has no side effects. But acupuncture point selection and technique is the key. It is recommended that the earlier the treatment accepted, the better result it has, as long as the treatment is conducted early and timely. Normally there are no side effects. Most patients are recovered within a month. If you delay the course of time and get mistreatment, you will be regretted for a life time.
