1. Various stubborn pain points in the limbs and trunk caused by chronic soft tissue injury. According to the research of acupotomy medicine, the main pathological changes of chronic soft tissue injury diseases are adhesions, contractures, scars, and blockages, which we call It is the four major pathological factors of chronic soft tissue injury diseases.
The pathological concept of "adhesion" in chronic soft tissue injury diseases, we understand from two aspects, one is traumatic soft tissue adhesion, the other is pathological soft tissue adhesion.
Traumatic soft tissue adhesion, including violent trauma, cumulative injury, concealed trauma, emotional injury, and soft tissue adhesion caused by many kinds of injury methods. The so-called concealed trauma is that there is trauma but it is not obvious. The patient does not feel the injury at the time of the injury, and does not produce pain for a long time. The patient does not consider it to be a trauma at the time of the onset, and the doctor is not easy to find it. For example, when I was joking, I was punched on the back, and then there was no obvious discomfort, or only slight discomfort, and it disappeared quickly. According to our clinical experience, this kind of trauma can also cause soft tissue adhesion under certain conditions. Soft tissue adhesions caused by this trauma. We call it the soft tissue adhesion of concealed trauma. I think this is very important and it is most easily ignored in clinical practice. Pay attention to this question when asking for medical history. As for the soft tissue adhesions caused by violent trauma and cumulative injury, the meaning is clear, and there is no need to mention it. Emotional injury is a problem that we did not recognize in the past. A person's sorrow, joy, anger, or excessive excitement can cause soft tissue damage. For details, please refer to the new theory of chronic soft tissue injury in Chapter 4 of "Principles of Needle Knife Medicine". The pathological changes of chronic soft tissue injury diseases caused by emotional injury are also adhesions, contractures, scars, and blockages. ? The adhesion of pathological soft tissue injury diseases, such as rheumatism and gangrene, carbuncle, furuncle incision to drain pus, and other diseases treated by incision surgery, may cause soft tissue adhesion after wound healing. It may cause adhesions between muscles and bones, muscles, ligaments, nerves, blood vessels, etc., causing local pain and functional limitations. These can be treated with acupotomy.
Various forms of adhesion caused by traumatic and pathological soft tissue injury diseases restrict the normal activities of the human body. In addition, there is persistent pain at the adhesion point. Due to its specific pathological factors, this type of pain is difficult to be effective in general treatment and cannot release the adhesion. Therefore, the dysfunction cannot be restored and the pain cannot be relieved.
In addition, where the adhesion area is large, the effect is poor, and the adhesion area is small or one point, the effect is the best.
2. Part of bone spurs (or bone hyperplasia)
The formation of bone spurs has been discussed in detail in the previous chapter. Some are caused by the excessive compressive stress of the joint itself, and some are caused by the excessive tensile stress of the soft tissue. It is mainly caused by muscle and ligament tension and contracture. The application of acupotomy can loosen the tension and contracture of muscles and ligaments. Bone hyperplasia (or bone spurs) at the attachment points of muscles and ligaments near all bones and joints is mostly caused by soft tissues, and acupotomy has a good effect.
Bone spurs caused by excessive compressive stress cannot be treated with acupotomy alone, but the mechanical state of the soft tissue around the joint must be balanced by the acupotomy treatment, and then the pressure stress in the bone joint can be restored by manipulation Balance, the bone spurs also get a fundamental treatment. Needle-knife treatment creates conditions for the restoration of the balance of forces inside the joints, and the technique can be effective.
There are so many synovial sacs in the human body, which are the medical education network for the lubricating fluid needed for muscle and joint activities. After the synovial sac is damaged acutely or chronically, it will cause the atresia of the synovial sac, and the excretion of the synovial fluid in the sac is impeded, causing the sac to expand, and symptoms such as acidity, swelling, pain, and dyskinesia appear. Or squeeze surrounding nerves and blood vessels due to excessive expansion, causing symptoms such as numbness and muscle atrophy.
Conventional treatments for this kind of disease are difficult to achieve. The bursa is cut open from the deep cross in a closed manner with a needle knife, and the synovial sac is quickly squashed with fingers after the needle knife, which often yields immediate results.
Fourth, the sequelae of limbs and trunk caused by injury
Injury sequelae, including limbs, trunk injuries, acute symptoms have been resolved after treatment, more than 100 days, residual dysfunction or muscle atrophy, and no other complications caused by bone fractures can be treated with needle knife therapy , But sometimes it is necessary to cooperate with other therapies. If the muscles have been atrophy and have no regenerative ability, acupotomy therapy is not ideal.
5. Early stage of myositis ossificans (including muscle and ligament calcification)
For myositis ossificans, the acupotomy treatment is adapted to the acupotomy treatment before the ossification is completely rigid, that is, when the muscles are still elastic, but the treatment course is relatively long, usually about 60 days. The cause of myositis ossificans is the same as that of bone hyperplasia. It is caused by excessive tensile stress on muscles and ligaments, which limits the normal function of the human body.

Six, various tenosynovitis
Needle knife treatment of various tenosynovitis, sometimes very fast, especially for stenosing tenosynovitis, plantar tunnel syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc., has a special effect, but sometimes it is necessary to cooperate with some drugs.
7. Accumulative damage to muscles and ligaments
Needle-knife treatment of accumulated injuries of muscles and ligaments has a significant effect on longer lesions and a poorer effect on shorter lesions.
8. Traumatic muscle spasm and muscle tension (non-brain-derived)
The clinical manifestations of traumatic muscle spasm and muscle tension are extremely complicated. Some constitute a disease alone, some are mixed with other diseases as a symptom, and some are more hidden. And because of muscle spasm and muscle tension, a prominent clinical symptom follows. However, as long as the cause is understood, it is muscle spasm and muscle tension, and the application of needle knife treatment can achieve immediate results.
Nine, sequelae of surgical injury
Incision surgery is performed on the extremities, especially in the vicinity of the joints, which tends to cause tendon sheath stenosis, contracture of fascia, muscle ligament, and joint capsule, scarring and adhesion, leading to dysfunction. This is a very disturbing sequelae, and the closed lysis of the needle knife has an ideal effect.
Ten, sequelae of pathological injury
Pathological injury refers to diseases such as degenerative contracture, scarring, and adhesion of soft tissue due to certain diseases, such as limited joint extension and flexion caused by rheumatoid arthritis after the healing of osteomyelitis, degeneration of soft tissue contracture, scarring, and adhesion , Acupotomy also has a good effect. Especially in the middle and late stages of rheumatoid arthritis, this change causes limb deformities, which has always been an unsolvable problem, and acupotomy can be solved.

11. Malunion of bone shaft fractures
The abnormal healing of bone shaft fractures affects function or has unresolved swelling, muscle atrophy, numbness and pain cannot be relieved, must be broken at the healing place, and then reset, re-fixed, and correct the deformity. Incision surgery is usually required, which is very traumatic and severe soft tissue damage, which can easily cause sequelae such as limb weakness. The traditional Chinese medicine treatment method uses a triangular wooden cushion to place the deformity healed, maneuver to force it to break, and then reset the treatment. This method is also easy to damage soft tissues and break healthy fractures. It is not easy to cut at the site that needs to be broken and cause new fracture trauma. The use of needle knife closed bone fracture can completely avoid the deficiencies of the above two methods. The broken place is broken without damaging the surrounding soft tissues, ensuring the integrity of the soft tissue morphology, which is conducive to functional recovery. For fractures near the joints and malunion of intra-articular fractures, closed bone fracture with needle knife can also be used, but the success rate is less than 60%, so it is not listed as an indication.
12. Needle-knife has a special effect on intra-articular fractures
The sequelae such as joint dysfunction can be avoided. For detailed operation methods, see the chapter on intra-articular fracture.
13. Acupotomy treatment is also very satisfactory for plastic surgery
Such as correcting part of the facial features, eliminating wrinkles, correcting children’s "O" legs, "K" legs, "X" legs and adult limb deformities.
14. Acupotomy medicine has a new understanding of the etiology and pathology of some chronic medical diseases. Under the guidance of this new etiology and pathology, not only can such diseases be cured fundamentally, but also very quickly. One or two treatments are enough.
Such as diabetes, chronic bronchitis, functional heart disease, superficial gastritis, chronic pancreatitis, chronic colitis, chronic nephritis, chronic cystitis, prostatitis, chronic pelvic inflammatory disease, etc. The curative effect is more than 80%.
15. Acupotomy is also very effective for anorectal diseases. Internal and external hemorrhoids can be eliminated without surgical operation.
16. It also has a good effect on some skin diseases
It is carried out under the guidance of new viewpoints on the etiology and pathology of some skin diseases, such as corns, acne, chronic urticaria, vitiligo, stubborn tinea, psoriasis and so on.
17. Acupotomy medicine has conducted in-depth research on the etiology and pathology of some gynecological diseases, and has gained a new understanding. Under the guidance of these new ideas, acupotomy treatment has achieved good curative effects such as dysmenorrhea and breast lobular hyperplasia , Ovarian cysts, irregular menstruation, etc.
18. For some endocrine disorders and some infectious diseases, the application of acupotomy treatment has achieved some curative effects, and it is now under in-depth research and is expected to have a greater breakthrough.
Acupotomy therapy has a very good effect on the above eighteen diseases, and it has a unique effect on most of the diseases. Over time, with the joint efforts of domestic and foreign scholars, acupotomy medicine will continue Have greater development, and widely used in clinical practice.
