Mrs. K. W.
The patient came to AcuMedic suffering from prolonged arthralgia. For 6 months she was experiencing cold pain, swelling and rigidity in the small limbs (hands, ankles and knees) as well as lassitude and weakness of the knees. She was diagnosed with a deficiency of Qi (the body’s essential energy) and invasion of Damp-Cold. After the 1st week of treatment, she felt much better; the swelling disappeared and joint pain was reduced. Tiredness was also reduced. After the 4th week of treatment the patient was feeling almost fine. She chose to continue with her acupuncture treatment (though herbal prescriptions were reduced) to further strengthen her health.
