A Case of Phantom Pain
Dr. Jason Hao, doctor of Chinese Medicine and acupuncturist, demonstrated the efficacy of Neuro-acupuncture at Walter Reed Hospital treating Iraq and Afghanistan veterans suffering from Phantom Limb pain aka Residual Limb Pain. The patient still feels pain in the foot, leg, hand or arm where the original injury occurred but in fact the body part no longer is attached – it has been amputated. The pain is not from the amputation site. What is occurring is that the region of the brain that is associated with the body part which had been removed is still processing the pain perception as though the injured body part(s) were attached. Neuro-acupuncture can ‘deactivate’ that area of the brain and end the pain. Some patient’s pain ended with one or two treatments.
