When Bill came to see me he stated that he had suffered from elbow pain for many months. Before his retirement he had worked in a warehouse, where he had to move things around, most likely he had lifted something heavy while working, which caused the strain and pain.
“Hardly noticeable first, the elbow joint pain became later unbearable, particularly at night after I had worked in the garden or carried heavy bags of groceries. The joints felt burning and were slightly swollen.
Visits to the doctor brought no relief. I tried painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications, to no avail. I could not lift grocery bags or my knapsack with such extreme pain.
After using the D.I.Y. Acupuncture stones in one treatment only, I had immediate relief. After eight treatments, the pain was totally gone.
I can lift heavy bags and objects with no problems. I recommend the holistic healing disks unequivocally. I continue to use them once a week to maintain a pain -free existence.”
Elbow Pain is often a result of an injury
Any kind of physical work where you have to lift or have repetitive movements of the arms such as moving things, plumbing, bricklaying etc. can cause strain with small tears in the tendons of the forearm.
This can happen in sports i.e. baseball, golf or tennis – that is why elbow pain is often referred to as a tennis elbow.
When the tendons are strained in a sudden movement you may experience a slight pain as it happens, and not using the elbow for a few days allows the self-healing energy of the body to take care of it.
If you suffer from an acute strain that causes minor elbow pain to apply ice pack on it immediately and use the joint as little as possible for a few days so that natural healing can take place.
Only after the tendons are totally healed should you start rebuilding the strength of the elbow.
However, if the condition is not treated, inflammation with calcium and mineral deposits can develop in the joints, which of course makes the pain worse. Neglecting to take care of the first signs can lead to serious problems.
Earlier injuries can later develop into osteoarthritis, a progressive disease which affects body joints. The cartilage breaks down and the loose bits of tissue cause inflammation, pain and poor function of the joint.
Ancient Acupuncture and Elbow Pain
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, any pain is a signal that Chi energy or/and blood are blocked, not moving in their natural way. Acupuncture helps increase and regulate movement within the energy and neural channels.
The results are often astounding, therefore Acupuncture has become a treatment of choice as alternative pain relief. The healing stones work on the ancient Acupuncture Principles.
In Bill’s case, Nano Acupuncture opened up the natural flow of energy and blood, flushing out the debris that had collected around and between the bones. This way the underlying problem was cleared, and the elbow pain was permanently erased.
