[Acu Note] A Case of Stomachache for over a year due to unknown cause (Pediatric Acupuncture)
A 9 years old girl came to my clinic with her mother. She had had experienced stomachache all the time for more than a year. She had taken various kinds of tests in the hospital, but the cause of the stomach ache was unknown. She had had gall stones accumulated in her gall bladder, so they were removed, but the stomach ache didn’t change at all. Because the doctor in the hospital recommended to try acupuncture, she came to my clinic.
When I pressed around her navel, there were some tender points.
I gave her Pediatric acupuncture twice a week.
Her condition was up and down, and the stomachache came and went for a while.
At 14th treatment, she reported that her stomach ache became one tenth and the pressure pain around her navel, which had never gone away, disappeared. So from the 15th treatment, I made the frequency of the treatment once a week.
At 22nd treatment, her stomachache completely disappeared and after that, she didn’t complain about stomachache at all.
At 27th treatment, confirming that her stomachache didn’t come back, the course of the treatment for her stomach ache ended.
It led to good results that she had continuously had my treatments trusting my acupuncture.
What I did during the course of the treatments was mainly Pediatric acupuncture(Video), the treatment placing a round-tip needle on the pressure-pain points around her naval and giving her homework placing a penny and a rolled aluminum foil on marked acupuncture points.
Her mother wrote about her treatment, so please read it by clicking here.
