Some Effective Points to Heal the Neck Pain | 太厉害了——治疗颈椎痛绝招,很少人知道

Recently, more and more patients come to our clinic for severe neck pain. Among the patients seeking help for pain related problems, most of them have neck pains. Why are there so many neck pain patients within two weeks? What are the causes of their problems? These questions may be left for further study, and today I would like to talk more about the healing of neck pain.

I am very familiar with neck pain, upper back pain, and lower back pain, because it has been my major field of study and application. Many years ago I published an article--- “The Eight Needles of the Neck” discussing the treatment of neck problems using the “eight needles” method. By then I was very contended because most of the patients would be healed quickly. However, as I explored more in the clinical practice, I eventually found that this “eight needles” method do not work so well for the more serious and acute cases, especially when the pain points were on the places where the muscle attaching the bones. For years I studied new methods such as distant points selecting and surface vein bleeding and it was not until recently that I found an effective new way to heal neck pain.

Here are some key points to these methods:

1. Distant Points Selecting

I usually take pairs of points using this method. The first pair is the Shugu and Houxi point. It is used for acute serious pain, and the needle technique is usually the reducing (“xie”) technique. Patients of this condition usually also has restriction of movement along with headache and shoulder pain that may extend to the shoulder blades and arms that make them unable to sleep or work. The second pair is the Kunlun and Taixi point. It is used treto at chronic conditions, and the needle technique is usually the adding (“bu”) technique on Taixi and reducing (“xie”) technique on Kunlun. These patients may suffer from long term serious neck pain and unease, and no pillow can fit them. Therefore they usually also have panic and depression problems.

2. Surface Vein Bleeding

This method is usually a follow-up after needle piercing. It is effective for both acute and chronic pain. It can be applied to the point of pain, or to the Dazhui, Dazhu, Gaomang and Tianzong points. It can also be applied on distant points such as Kunlun and Shugu, which need to be determined according to the actual situation.

Dear friends, if you can apply the above methods properly, most hard cases of neck pain can be solved with ease.




  1. 远端取穴:这种取穴法我多采用对穴。第一组为束骨、后溪,第二组为昆仑、大溪。第一组运用于急性疼痛及较重的疼痛,行针以泻法为主。这类病人颈痛可伴随运动受限,头痛,双肩痛,且疼痛还可能像肩胛处及上肢放射,以至不能入睡,不能工作。每次发作可持续几天到几月。第二组运用于长期的病患,以补太溪泻昆仑为主。这类病人可存在长期的颈部疼痛和极度不适,各种枕头都不合适,心情睡眠都极受影响。

  1. 刺络放血:这个方法多是针刺后再使用,运用于各种急性和慢性疼痛。可以以疼点为主,也可以以大椎,大杼,膏盲,天宗穴为主。远端也可用昆仑和束骨。这要根据临床具体情况来判断。
