Successful Resolution of Headache from Pinched Nerve
A 56 y.o. female came for treatment in June 2012 complaining of a constant headache in her right temple which was diagnosed as coming from a pinched nerve in her right occipital area (around acupuncture point GB-20). Her extremely painful headache impaired her everyday life to the point that her MD recommended surgery to cauterize the nerve at the base of her occiput. Migraine medication and cranial massage did not alleviate the patient’s headaches. After one acupuncture session, the patient experienced a relief in headache pain so much so that she cancelled her cauterization procedure. And within 5 sessions the patient’s pain had dropped from a 9 level of pain to a 6. The patient feels that her headache pain will continue to improve with further acupuncture treatment and states that her headache pain is now “liveable”.
