The patient is a woman with the age of 70s.
She complains that her left ankle has been painful since she woke up this morning. She feels painful at both inside and outside of her left ankle especially when she climbs up and down stairs. The pain goes up to the back of knee.
I gave her acupuncture treatment explained in Individual Acupuncture Treatment and her ankle pain was healed by one acupuncture treatmement.
When I checked her left ankle, there were a lot of painful points with pressure around her left ankle, especially around both sides of the ankle bones.
I made diagnosis by checking her pulse, abdomen and neck, and touched an acupuncture point on left Kidney energy pathway with a round-tip needle, and tapped her neck and head with another round-tip needle. After that, I let her relax for 15 minutes on the treatment table.
When I came back 15 minutes later, I checked her left ankle again. The painful points with pressure decreased to only two points. Other painful points on her abdomen and chest were all gone.
I had her lie on her stomach and treated her back with round-tip needles, and had her lie on her back and checked her left ankle again. There were no painful points around her left ankle including the remaining two painful points after the relaxation.
I asked her to check her ankle by standing and weighing her ankle, but there was no pain with the movements. The treatment for her left ankle ended.
