Abstract : Objectives: We would like to conduct retrospective study on patients who have had symptoms of spinal stenosis and whose causes were analyzed through imaging to analyze the causes in terms of diagnostic radiology. Methods: We analyzed the cause of spinal stenosis through imaging tests of patients visiting for spinal stenosis. Results: We could observe various cases caused by one of the following: disc herniation, typical stenosis with thickened yellow ligament, spondylolisthesis, disc surgery, cyst, OPLL, calcification of bulged disc, intrinsic narrowing of the spinal canal and bony spur. Conclusion: We led to the conclusion that medical imaging is essential for diagnosis and treatment of patients in the oriental clinic, as it is hard to expect significant improvements and reversible changes in stenosis with various causes, and as such stenosis may show different prognosis compared to that of general stenosis.

Abstract : Objectives: Symptoms of numbness in the area of the hand, including fingers and palm, are one of the common symptoms that patients complain of in clinical practice. ‘3 kinds of upper extremity nerve compression test’ is a physical examination that diagnoses neurological symptoms of the hand area, such as fingers, back of the hand, and palm, and compresses the upper arm to find out the causes, and can be useful in identifying and diagnosing the causes of neurological symptoms of the hand area. Methods: ‘3 kinds of upper extremity nerve compression test’ is a method of compressing the lateral intermuscular septum to confirm the entrapment of the radial nerve, and the medial intermuscular septum, the Flexor digital superficialis arch (FDS arch) to confirm the entrapment of the ulnar nerve and the median nerve. Results: ‘3 kinds of upper extremity nerve compression test’ can diagnose whether the cause of neurological symptoms on the hand is due to entrapment below the elbow section like carpal tunnel syndrome, Flexor digitorum superficialis syndrome, Cubital tunnel and Guyon’s canal, or upper the elbow section like triangular interval and Cervical radiculopathy. Through ‘3 kinds of upper extremity nerve compression test’, it is possible to increase the accuracy of subsequent diagnosis and set the direction of treatment by identifying which lesion of Double Crush Syndrome occurs among the paths of Radial nerve, ulnar nerve, and median nerve. Conclusion: With the Pinch roll test and the Spurling test, ‘3 kinds of upper extremity nerve compression test’ was performed to confirm the condition of the entire neural path with a single diagnosis to clearly confirm where the nerve was entrapped, and through this, accurate diagnosis and treatment were possible. This study is meaningful in that it presented the standard procedure and clinical significance of the upper triad compression test for the first time.

Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to prove the therapeutic effect of acupuncture, herbal acupuncture, electroacupuncture, herbal medicine, and chuna for trigeminal neuralgia that has persisted for months to years. Acupuncture, medicinal acupuncture, electroacupuncture, and chuna were treated according to the Soft Tissue Society’s unique acupuncture method, RSN acupuncture theory, for trigeminal neuralgia patients who visited Daemyung Oriental Clinic from June 2021, and the patient’s response was measured using the NRS Scale. In addition, it was attempted to confirm that there was a substantial therapeutic effect by examining whether the western medicine was taken and the number of times during the treatment process. The NRS index case1 before treatment was 9, and pain and discomfort completely disappeared with NRS 0 after 6 treatments. In the case 2, NRS 6?7 before treatment improved to NRS 0 after 6 treatments. In the case 3, NRS 9?10 to NRS 1?2 after 15 treatments improved and the treatment was terminated. Through the RSN acupuncture treatment of three relatively old patients with trigeminal neuralgia, it was confirmed that acupuncture, herbal acupuncture, electroacupuncture, herbal medicine, and chuna were effective in combination treatment with oriental medicine. It is considered that it can be applied to other trigeminal neuralgia patients.

Abstract : We report a case of persistent paresthesia after brachial plexus block treated by acupotomy and Chuna. This case is to report acupotomy and Chuna efficacy of paresthesia. A 82-year-old male who was suffered from paresthesia (especially chilling, pricking) that lasted about 10 years. The patient was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome in 2011, feeling chills in his left hand, and treated surgery but to no avail. So the patient treated brachial plexus block, after which chills appeared on the left full arm. The patient Treated in Ona Korean medicine clinic For 42 weeks (2020-12-24 to 2021-10-08), the patient visited 46 times and was treated with acupotomy on axillary nerve branch, radial nerve branch, musculocutaneus nerve branch. Also the patient was treated with Chuna 25 times on cervical spine to restore cervical curve. After 46 times acupotomy and 25 times Chuna, Body temperature increased 4.54℃ in the Axillary region, increased 4.47℃ in the Inferior lateral brachial cutaneou nerve region, 3.69℃ in the posterior antebrachial cutaneous nerve region, 4.59℃ in the musclulocutaneous nerve region and 4.53℃ in the superficial branch of radial nerve region. And after 25 times Chuna, cervical C-curve is improved. This improvement might suggest the feasibility of acupotomy and chuna to improve paresthesia, but it is only one case report, so much more research will be needed.

Abstract : We’re reporting five case of patient with peripheral tinnitus treated by acupotomy and other medical care. Patients visited the clinic because their peripheral tinnitus did not improve even though they were treated at otolaryngology. We have treated the patients for acupotomy of RSN points, which are cervical spine, thoracic spine and TE-17 (Yifeng), and Other medical care. Before and after treatment, the degree of improvement was checked through pure tone audiometry of the patient, broad band noise of the patient and patient statements. Peripheral tinnitus was improved through other medical care and treatment of direct and indirect Acupotomy of points Which are the cervical spine, thoracic spine, and nerves involved in the ear, such as the vagus nerve, the glossopharyngeal nerve, the facial nerve (chorda tympani nerve, geniculate ganglion), the trigeminal nerve, sphnopalatine ganglion (SPG), superior cervical ganglion and the auditory nerve. More specially, broad band noise of the patient decreased and 6 band test of patients on pure tone audiometry was mostly improved. Lastly subjective statement of patients about tinnitus have been improved. Our treatment show that acupotomy and other medical cares have positive effect on peripheral tinnius patient. As the cases of tinnitus treatment continue to accumulate, the treatment rate is improving, but there have been many cases where it is still insufficient and does not respond to treatment at all. Therefore, more cases and research are needed in the future.
