COMMON PAIN, acute & chronic and Mesopuncture Acupuncture

COMMON PAIN, acute & chronic and Mesopuncture Acupuncture
Indeed acupuncture is a substantial help in the treatment of pain for human beings.

Indeed acupuncture is a substantial help in the treatment of pain for human beings.
In daily medicine, common pain is, essentially, of both origin from members and spine.
. For this,  Acupuncture Points_ APs dedicated must be activated with/without needles. 
Among the needle-free stimuli are described, laser, massage, Moxas, microwaves… 

Stimulation of active APs on pain is achieved essentially by insertion and manipulation of needles into the AP, creating the 'Acupuncture Effect' which is a set of energetic properties attributed by the Chinese texts, to each AP stimulated, contributing to restoration of the body's energy balance, damaged by disease.

The Acupuncture effect lasts 2-3 days and insertion of the needles should be repeated as well as the time required for each consultation, its financial cost and mainly the insertion of needles pain.

Moreover, Chinese medicine could not ignore and has not ignored, the progress of Western medicine which could benefit to its Patients.

·                     Chinese medicine published, at the last century end, in the ‘Précis d’Acupuncture Chinoise’ in French language, edited by the Chinese Medicine Academy in Beijing, under the title: Therapeutic by injection into Acupuncture Points, the possibility of stimulating the AP by a liquid drug, to perform a fluid stimulus of the AP, then known as Mesopuncture.

Mesopuncture is currently booming in certain Academies of Chinese Medicine in China.
The liquid drug is either injected with a needle or needleless and deposited in the AP:
·                     The liquid drug stimulates the AP and creates the Acupuncture Effect whose duration depends on the physicochemical structure of the liquid drug, its removal rate of the Human Body...

The pharmacological properties of the selected liquid drug and their duration, also depending on its physicochemical structure, described in the  Pharmacopeia are kept in Mesopuncture, producing the Pharmacological Effect.

         In the case of pain by osteoarthritis it can be selected an anti-inflammatory liquid drug. The pharmacological action of this liquid drug on osteoarthritis and pain is synergic of its Acupuncture Effect, also active on osteoarthritis and pain but by correction of the imbalance of energy, when it is injected in the dedicated AP.
There are anti-inflammatory drugs, whose Pharmacological Effect is synergistic of the Acupuncture Effect they produce, when injected into the AP and whose duration of action is 3-4 weeks.
There are no, at present, anti-inflammatory of a longer duration of action, withsynergistic effects both by Acupuncture and Pharmacology.

 It is thus possible to obtain stimuli of longer duration by using liquid drugs injected into the AP, whose Acupuncture effect is very long, several weeks or months, without adverse pharmacological effect as hyaluronic acid.

It may be noted the proximity of hyaluronic acid stimulus and catgut burial into the APs or auricular titanium implants for weight loss or Parkinson's disease.

BMN & Mesotherapy Acupuncture Mesopuncture & Wet-Dry Needling

BMN & Mesotherapy Acupuncture Mesopuncture & Wet-Dry Needling

The BMN is a hollow acupuncture needle topped with a resilient polymer reservoir, empty and filled by the Therapist using it as a dropper. The presence of the reservoir used as a handle allows the BMN, hypodermic needle, to be part of the acupuncture #needles, according to the FDA. It is the only needle used, at the same time, as hypodermic and acupuncture needle.(#acupunctureneedle).
The needle: 13mm length. External diameter, 0.3mm.
The reservoir: Length 10-12mm. 14/100ml volume.

The Trigger Point_ TP  is an irritable spot either spontaneously (active TP) or on digital compression (Latent TP) able to generate either local or referred pain to other musculature, motor dysfunction and even autonomic phenomenon such as sweating, swelling, and "goose bumps."
These TPs may become activated by a variety of factors such as, poor posture, overuse, or muscle imbalance.
TPs exhibit a local twitch response (muscle fasciculation) or jump sign (flexion response) in response to digital pressure or to Dry & Wet Needling.
The BMN is the only device for treating the trigger point responsible for most chronic musculoskeletal pain: The BMN allows with a single needle insertion to perform both Wet and Dry needling.
Thus, is appeased the contestation of Professionals in Acupuncture protesting against using compact acupuncture needles without qualification to practice acupuncture, instead of using hypodermic needles as originally proposed; Therefore, the BMN, needle both acupuncture and hypodermic is an indication of choice.

the Acupuncture Point stimulation

         It seems to be accepted, currently, that the network of APs and meridians may be viewed as a representation of the network formed by the interstitial connective tissue with meridians as cleavage plans and APs as amounts of connective tissue (LANGEVIN).
It is also, in the connective tissue that, are located collagen and elastin fibers, involved in aesthetic and Western cosmetic treatments.
This is why acupuncture has a leading role in aesthetics and why BMN is an adequate vector.
To be effective, it is necessary to stimulate the AP whose location is known and systematized, on the skin surface for millennia and, now, interpreted as an easy access to significant volume of connective tissue.

Activation of the Acupuncture Point is performed by:
**-* the needle inserted and remaining few minutes in the AP: Acupuncture.
**-* few drops of the liquid drug, from the reservoir, injected into the AP or deposited on the skin surface of the PA and crossing the skin by iontophoresis: Mesopuncture.
 The BMN, being both acupuncture and #hypodermic needle allows, in the same therapeutic procedure, to achieve with the same needle insertion, the liquid and metal stimulation. It allows, moreover, creating Mesotherapy Points_ MPs, all around the AP.
Several liquid medications may be used: Distilled water, saline, vitamins, homeopathy, allopathy, phytotherapy, trace elements and more: Hyaluronic acid, various injectable drugs.
& After injection of few drops of liquid drug from the BMN reservoir into the AP, it is possible, with the same BMN inserted into the AP, without removing it completely but pivoting it, into the dermis all around the AP, to create micro-reservoirs of few drops of the liquid drug injected which are Mesotherapy Points_ MPs.
MPs can also be created by #iontophoresis, without needle.
MPs can be created in any part of the dermis but all around the AP location.
The BMN allows performing Mesopuncture Acupuncture Mesotherapy with the same needle insertion, the same BMN and same liquid drug filling the reservoir.

&& The liquid drug is active through its physicochemical structure which stimulates the AP (Acupuncture effect) while keeping its therapeutic properties (pharmacologic effect), recognized by the western pharmacopoeia.
Pharmacologic and acupuncture effect (or acupuncture point activation) are of identical duration and both dependent on the physicochemical structure of the liquid drug.

&&& In general, the liquid drugs have acupuncture effect duration greater or equal to the acupuncture effect of conventional metallic acupuncture needle.

Other liquid drugs have acupuncture effect of long or very long lasting with a 'pharmacological effect' of the same duration:
It is interesting, to have at our disposal, currently, these drugs of very long duration of action such as hyaluronic acid, which allows to obtain 'acupuncture effect' of very long duration, 'the pharmacological effect' is of same duration but without having any harmful effect on the Patient health, the hyaluronic acid being known as a drug of comfort.
This liquid drug of long action duration (e.g. #hyaluronic acid) with, as a result, long duration of the pharmacologic effect and long duration of the acupuncture effect, allows spacing the acupuncture sessions.

&&&&  In addition, the liquid drug locally injected, keeping its therapeutic properties, has a specific becoming: It acts, at first, directly on the skin area selected for the treatment and, at a second time, after passing through the blood to reach the liver, for conjugation, it acts, again, on the targeted zone.
