Post COVID-19 Case Study

18 April 2021 – Floating Needle Treatment of a Case of Breathing Difficulty with Chest Pain after New Coronary Pneumonia

Since March 2020, the new crown virus has ravaged the UK. As of today (07/09/2020), there have been 347,152 people diagnosed with the new crown virus in the UK, of which 41,551 people have died. In the past two months, the number of newly diagnosed infections in the United Kingdom has exceeded 1,000 daily, and the number has increased significantly in recent days. Yesterday it reached 2,988, the highest number of new cases since April. A second wave of epidemics is suspected . Many patients who have been diagnosed with new crowns after their nucleic acid tests turned negative still suffer from the sequelae of new crowns.

According to a report on July 20 by “Third A Fax”, “Dr. Jack Suett said that he worked as an anesthesiologist and intensive care physician at the National Health Service in Norfolk, UK, and treated several COVID-19 patients until he started showing up. Symptoms. He began to suffer from general fatigue, sore throat, a few days later, he developed dry cough and fever, and finally gasped and really couldn’t do anything, so he could only lie in bed. His chest X-rays and oxygen levels were normal. .. Then he developed severe heart-shaped chest pain.”

“Professor Graham Cooker, an infectious disease expert at Imperial College London, analyzed the autopsy reports of patients who died of the new crown. The results showed that all patients with new crowns have thrombosis. He said that thrombosis is a major problem. This is already obvious. ”

“…This also explains why up to 62% of COVID-19 patients in the UK have had a stroke during their hospital stay.”

Therefore, in the treatment of new coronary sequelae, great attention should be paid to improving blood circulation to restore the function of damaged organs, especially those with chest pain and breathing difficulties should pay attention to improving the heart and lung blood supply to improve symptoms. I have used floating needles to treat chest pain and dyspnea and have achieved good results. The report is as follows.

28/08/2020 – First Consultation

Ms. LIC, a Filipino, 49 years old, came to the clinic for 5 months after being infected with the new crown virus. The patient was diagnosed with the new crown virus on March 18 this year. At the beginning, he had only a slight cough, shortness of breath, and fever for 2 days. Two weeks later, headache, back pain, heart-shaped chest pain caused inability to sleep, nasal congestion and difficulty breathing, dry cough without sputum, no sense of smell and taste, decreased vision, dry eyes, and reading glasses are required. Accompanied by low back pain, severe left knee pain, frequent urination, nocturia 3 times, large enough. Two months after the patient’s onset, the nucleic acid test was negative, but the above symptoms did not improve.

The patient participated in the World Anti-Covid-19 Respiratory Difficulty Relief Organization for help due to the sequelae of the above-mentioned new crown virus. He also underwent three traditional acupuncture treatments in London with no effect.

Physical examination: blood oxygen saturation 98%, blood pressure 101/76mmHg, pulse 60-63. The tip of the tongue is red, with cracks in the middle, and the root moss is thin and yellow and greasy.

Floating needle medical examination:

Sternocleidomastoid muscle: right +++, left ++; right pectoralis major +++, pectoralis minor +++, left rhomboid +++, left and right erector spinae +++, left knee push Patella experiment left and right lower side+,

Floating needle treatment: using disposable floating needles,

  1. The rear edge of the left side of the needle (equivalent to the position of the serratus anterior muscle, the needle tip points to the rhomboid muscle to sweep away the respiratory resistance, shoulder pain, rowing resistance perfusion, the back pain disappears, and the affected muscle becomes loose.
  2. Acupuncture the left pectoralis major muscle against the head of the clavicle, sweep and increase breathing resistance. After the acupuncture, the patient opened his hands outwards and said, “It seems that the heavy object is moved away, and it doesn’t hurt at all.”
  3. Acupuncture the upper 1/2 part of the right sternocleidomastoid muscle, sweeping and perfusion combined with left and right neck rotation resistance, squeezing eyes and nasal breathing exercises. After the needle, the patient feels that the right nasal ventilation has improved by 90%.
  4. Needle the upper part of the left rectus abdominis muscle, 2 cm from the midline, bombard the left knee joint remotely from top to bottom, sweep and increase the resistance of the calf extension, resistance of the left foot varus, and dorsiflexion of the foot, pressure resistance and reperfusion, The pain in the left knee disappeared after the acupuncture.

30/08/2020 – Second Consultation

He complained that the curative effect was maintained for 4 hours after the last acupuncture. He still had chest and back pain, and had difficulty breathing at night. He also emphasized that the chest and back pain was internal, especially the pain in the left chest and heart. My eyesight improved slightly, and I still had nasal congestion, occasionally headaches, and no pain in the knee joints.

Floating needle medical examination:

Upper segment of bilateral erector spinae ++, left diaphragm ++

Treatment: Continue to use disposable floating needles. 1) The rear needle tip of the upper left serratus anterior muscle points to the direction of the erector spinae, sweeps and deepens the breathing, lifts the chest and presses the back and hands to resist perfusion until the pain disappears on the upper back of both sides. 2) After acupuncture, the chest pain disappeared after acupuncture by sweeping and infusing the upper 1/2 of the left diaphragm. 3) Acupuncture at Baihui acupoint in the middle of the head, squeeze the eyes and breathe in the nose at the same time, the eyes will be moist after the acupuncture, and the nasal congestion on the right side has improved by 90%.


01/09/2020 – Third Consultation

The patient complained of no pain in the left chest, but pain in the middle and lower back, recurrent nasal congestion on the right side, improved vision (the patient did not wear glasses), shoulder pain, and pain in the left knee again.

Physical examination: left + + +, right + + in the middle of the erector spinae, and levator scapula + +. Left push patellar experiment: bilateral inferior +, tibial anterior muscle +++, tightness in the front of the neck, a sense of neck-strapped.

Floating Needle Treatment:

  • Needle 1) Needle the middle part of the left erector spinae muscle, sweep and loosen and pressurize and infuse the chest and back until the bilateral back and shoulder pain disappears.
  • Needle 2) Insert a needle into the upper part of the sternal stem, with the tip of the needle facing the sternocleidomastoid muscle, sweeping and reperfusion;
  • Needle 3) Scanning the upper part of the left tibialis anterior muscle and perfusing until the knee pain disappears.

After the third visit, the patient reported no symptoms, but given the long course of the disease and fear of recurrence, the patient was instructed to continue the treatment in the hope that the curative effect would be solid.

Discussion Point

Why is the use of floating needles to treat heart-type chest pain in the sequelae of new coronary syndromes can achieve results that conventional acupuncture can’t?

The answer is that floating needle treatment is the impaired blood supply caused by the affected muscles, which can quickly improve the blood circulation in the chest and lungs, eliminate the affected muscles, improve blood supply, and the patient immediately relieves the symptoms.

“Professor Berche believes that even mild patients with cough or fever will have sequelae of pulmonary fibrosis, although it is still not possible to accurately know how often this happens…”. He referred to this sequelae as a “timing threat”-selected from “Three-A Fax”.

This is the case for Ms. LIC, but it is not true pulmonary fibrosis. The formation of sequelae of true pulmonary fibrosis takes six months to one year.

When the new coronavirus has turned negative, the part of the alveolar bronchioles that has been infected in the body may cause some adhesions, which is not an infection of the blood vessels (note that the use of antibiotics at this time is 100% wrong and will only aggravate the condition), and It is the adhesion of the small blood vessels connected to the alveolar bronchus caused by the adhesion of the alveolar small bronchi, which causes the corresponding blood flow disorder. The blood flow is impassable, and it is painful. Therefore, the vicious cycle. If not treated in time, over half a year or a year will really cause the sequelae of pulmonary fibrosis.

According to Fu Zhonghua’s “New Theory of Qi and Blood”, “Qi can flow blood”, the normal operation of blood requires impetus. The “Su Wen Wei Lun” records: the heart governs the blood of the body. The heart is the power organ for blood circulation, and the vessel is the channel for blood circulation. The promotion of blood throughout the body depends on the action of qi, that is, the systolic and diastolic pulsation of the myocardium and the rhythm of vascular smooth muscle. In this case, the use of floating needles is to locate the relevant lung muscles for sweeping and perfusion to restore the vascular smooth muscle to normal rhythm, avoid thrombosis, and smoothly transport blood to the corresponding alveolar bronchus to restore its respiratory function. Generally, there is no pain, so the chest pain disappears and the symptoms improve.
