The patient had pain in the left side of her neck especially when she looked at the left side. When I palpated her neck, there was a hard knot and pressure pain at the left transverse process of 5th cervical spine. I thought it was caused by the misalignment of the 5th cervical spine.
I checked her pulse and abdomen, and decided the patter of the root treatment as Spleen Deficiency. I tonified right SP3 with Teishin using Yang technique. Right after the needling, she told me that she felt her neck was released from the pressure. After I confirmed her pulse and abdomen got better, I let her relax in the same position for about 10 minutes.
10 minutes later I came back and checked her neck. There was no hard knot at the left side of C5 and the left side of her neck was as soft as the right side.
After other treatment with Teishin on her back and neck, I asked her to turn her neck to the right and left. There was no pain in her neck.
Usually direct treatment to the area of misaligned cervical spine is mainly performed. But I realized again that if the root treatment was as effective as the body structure moved, the direct treatment was not necessary so much.
