Numbness, pins and needles in foot
Posted in the Acupuncture Forum
#1 May 15, 2012
I've just started treating a new client who after a back accident about 3 months ago is now experiencing numbness, pins and needles in her right foot. The sensation can go to her ankles and sometimes her shin after 5 minutes of standing. The back problem was an acute sprain with possible underlying Kidney Yang Xu. I'm not sure on the tcm diagnosis for the numbness pins and needles. I originally thought it could be Blood Xu, but she has no other symptoms of this. Could it just be on obstruction of Qi and Blood along the meridian? Any advice of tcm diagnosis and points would be helpful.
Points I have been using.
