Patient ask question about zak acupuncture

Sep 13, 2008 - 0 comments

Patient:Dr Zak,I would be interested in starting off with how you first became interested in back pain?

Zak: I became interested in back pain when I became a military doctor in Chinese army hospital. I was exposed to large numbers of people with back pain.After a few years working with the conventional treatments, I came to the conclusion that there was something terribly wrong, because a lot of my patients are still in pain.I found that large numbers of people in whom the pain was being attributed to some structural abnormality actually just had soft tissue inflammation.

Patient: Are the soft tissue inflammation that lead to back pain, very common?

Zak: Yes,It is more than back pain. it also can lead to neck pain,shoulder pain,knee pain ,hip pain,ankle pain,etc.

Patient: What about the physiology?

Zak. What is actually causing the pain in these people is not the herniated disc, or some of those other structural things, but a condition of soft tissue inflammation due to chronic injuries, which can lead to chemical stimulation in particular area. This stimulation is what causes pain in back.

Patient: Are you saying that this inflamed soft tissue is the underlying cause for all back pain?

Zak: Yes. and If soft tissue inflammation involves a tendon around the knee, the patient will have a painful tendon there.
, Shoulder pain is also very common now,reason is same.

Patient: According to your theory, structural abnormalities don't even contribute to the condition.But,About the disc surgery, why do many cases have analgesic effects of different degrees?

Zak: In many cases I've concluded that they have nothing to do with the problem. Everyone else had bulges, herniations of various kinds, and so on, and yet no pain. About the surgery of spinal soft tissue damage , it's mainly because that disc surgery surgeons unconsciously incise and strip those damage sites where the muscle and fascia are connected to the bone and also where pain comes from. And about mixed spinal soft tissue damage, the surgeons also unwittingly release adipose tissue lesions located on epidural and outside of nerve sheath. But because the release is incomplete, in most cases ,It can only achieve the analgesic effect without truly and effectively curing pain, even if such analgesia is achieved, it's merely because that the soft tissue lesions are released, not because disc is taken out. Disc surgery only has short-term satisfactory effects, and in most cases there are various degrees of ease after operation, or in some cases ,the pain temporarily disappears. However, the long-term effect would be very poor, it's easy to relapse after two years. It's therefore being named :Failed Back Surgery Syndrome(FBSS) in the international meeting.

Patient: This is a very different approach from other back-pain professionals.

Zak: Yes, it is. it's important to make the right diagnosis. If you make the wrong diagnosis,it will hard to get relief.

Patient: Let's move on to treatment. What should patients with back pain do? What should their doctors do?

Zak: Deep and intensive acupuncture,which can lead to circulation better and less inflammation,then pain will go away. According to the theory about this soft tissue diseases and Chinese medicine thoery:”The pressure pain point was selected as needled point", Deeply needling with many needles to reach the bone and tendon at surroundings of the joint of lesion was adopted and the mechanism of deeply and Intensive needle therapy in treatment of soft tissue diseases was investigated. RESULTS: This therapy had functions of dredging channels, activating blood circulation and alleviating pain, relaxing muscles and tendons, and promoting activity of joints, which were stronger and lasted longer timeas compared with general simple acupuncture. Particularly, it had obvious analgesic effect on pain syndrome induced by chronic refractory soft tissue diseases. It is indicated that the mechanism is mainly eliminating aseptic inflammation, increasing local blood supply, relaxing muscular spasm, so as to stop pain caused by inflammation, ischemia and spasm. In deeply acupuncture, long, fine needles are placed on the back to achieve the desired therapeutic effects on deep parts of the lower back. This technique has yielded outstanding results for thousands of patients in China, and has become recognized worldwide as one of the most effective methods for the treatment of a wide variety of difficult-to-manage pain conditions and this technique has been very popular in China.


Simple tip about zak acupuncture

Sep 13, 2008 - 0 comments

It estimate that up to 80% of adults will eventually suffer from back pain condition.Traditionally,conventional medical doctors attribute back pain to specific anatomical problems in the spine,but spinal X rays or MRI scans of many people with disabling back pain appear perfectly normal,Formal Chinese back specialist,acupuncture practitioner, Zak believes that most cases of chronic back pain are caused by a inflamed soft tissue (tendon and ligment) which due to chronic injuries and could be treated by deep and intensive acupuncture.While working at the Chinese army hospital, Dr. Zak saw numerous patients with debilitating back pain for whom he prescribed conventional treatments, with inconsistent and typically disappointing results. Dr Zak began to question traditional medicine to diagnosing and treating back pain.With 20 years clinical experience, he became convinced that most back pain and neck pain originated in the soft tissue injury rather than in a structural abnormality of the spine. Dr.Zak notes that deep and intensive acupuncture that enhance the flow of blood and relive inflammation to the affected area. The most convincing support for this theory comes from the tremendous success both China and UK.

Some idea about this condition
by Zak on Mon Mar 17, 2008 9:57 am

Synovial impaction :traditional treatment is the open facet, the use of repair methods.

But my understanding is this: It's the principle of treatment is not open facet, restored to its normal position and this is the main way lengthen the waist muscles so that the partial relaxation, thereby reducing pain.

I use zak acupuncture, do not use hand technique, and intensive use only deep acupuncture, in the location of the point of tenderness, pain can be completely solved the problem.

I do not agree that due to impaction on the traditional neural reflex caused by pain, and the articular surface of interlocking problems, these are not the real reason.

According to experts, we can only determine the precise cause of back pain about 15% of the time (e.g.,a disc herniation pushing on a nerve causing leg pain). But we all have opinions and most providers are not shy about sharing them. Some day the mystery of back pain will be solved but for now we often have to live with some uncertainty .So,First af all ,We need to know what cause pain?



Pain is a paresthesia and issue protective warning of the body by bacterial inflammation ; aseptic inflammation or chemical stimulation . It suggests the tissue injury. Bacterial inflammation can occur in the bone tissue, it can also occur in soft tissues; However, the incidence of aseptic inflammation is only limited in soft tissues, not in bone tissues.



As we all know, pain is associated with the nervous system ,but with which? It's actually due to the spinal soft tissue damage, When the muscles and fascia of the bone got aseptic inflammatory injury, it's chemically stimulating the inner nerve endings, It would immediately transfer to the brain, and then feed back into the soft tissue lesion and then pain occurs.



In contrast, the traditional concept that "spinal bone proliferation", "disc", "spinal stenosis" “nerve root compression “ ,they think that mechanical stimulation is the main cause which causes chronic pain.



I totally disagree with the traditional  theory of oppression leads to pain,As only signs of normal nerve would show are numbness and paralysis when being affected by acute mechanical compression ,So it's not pain. If it's chronic mechanical compression, because the nerve tissue has a strong capacity to resist oppression, there wouldn't even be oppression, not to say it's pain. Therefore, the traditional doctrine of mechanical compression induced pain does not fit in with the truth.



A: But,About the disc surgery, why do many cases have analgesic effects of different degrees?



Zak Han:Well,Firstly,(1)About the surgery of spinal soft tissue damage , it's mainly because that spinal surgeons unconsciously incise and strip  those damaged tissue where the muscle and fascia are connected to the bone and this area also is palce where pain comes from. (2) And about mixed spinal soft tissue damage, the surgeons also unwittingly release adipose tissue lesions located on epidural and outside of nerve sheath. But, because this release is incomplete, in most cases ,It can only achieve the analgesic effect without truly and effectively curing pain, even if such analgesia is achieved, it's merely due to soft tissue lesions were released, not due to disc was taken out. Disc surgery only has short-term satisfactory effects, and in most cases there are various degrees of ease after operation, or in some cases ,the pain temporarily disappears. However, the long-term effect would be very poor, it's easy to relapse after two years. It's therefore being named :Failed Back Surgery Syndrome(FBSS) in the international meeting.



So ,all the facts above indicate that the traditional mechanical compression induced pain is faulty. Name of “Disc herniation "," various types of cervical disease (except spinal type) "," spinal stenosis "," Spondylolisthesis " "spinal bone hyperplasia," and "idiopathic scoliosis," should be ended as wrong theories. Surgery is necessary in fewer than 2% of cases of back pain. There are many other effective treatments .So,I suggest patients,Don't Rush into Surgery,Not every disc that herniates (ruptures) requires surgery. An operation should only be considered when there is danger of permanent damage from the herniation pressing on a nerve root governing strength or sensation, or bladder or bowel control. Try non-surgical therapy including acupuncture.It is clear whether the non-surgical therapy or surgical therapy, we must totally destroy the original site of all the tenderness point. That can truly cure chronic pain,



A;What is your pain relief acupuncture?



Zak Han:ok,Acupuncture is ancient therapy.About acupuncture,Whether from basic or clinical, lack of a satisfactory explanation .Limbs Point Acupuncture may ease the spasm of soft tissue and reduce aseptic inflammation ,It can analgesia. But traditional acupuncture ban periosteal bone and muscle attachment area which is just soft tissue damaged area ,Doing traditional acupuncture could limit the efficacy of acupuncture.New soft tissue acupuncture thrapy negate the meridian and acu-point.Intensive and deeply needle in" tender point ",which is primary lesions area of soft tissue damage pain ,It similar to soft tissue release operation,It is effective for the treatment of primary pain, greatly increased efficacy .It must be pointed out : Tender point of soft tissue acupuncture are different from the points of "Ashi" of Chinese medicine point,and it is not an isolated, it is the three-dimensional soft tissue lesion which consist of a group of "tender point".so we could say: traditional acupuncture only can do "pain ease",can't do "pain treatment".But Zak's acupuncture can do"pain treatment ",effective for long term.Why ? please noted :ZAK PAIN RELIEF ACUPUNCTURE SPECIALISE IN TREATING CHRONIC AND DIFFICULT BACK PAIN CASES .According to the theory about soft tissue diseases and Chinese medicine thoery:”The pressure pain point was selected as needled point", Deeply needling with many needles to reach the bone and tendon at surroundings of the joint of lesion was adopted and the mechanism of deeply and Intensive needle therapy in treatment of soft tissue diseases was investigated. RESULTS: This therapy had functions of  dredging channels, activating blood circulation and alleviating pain, relaxing muscles and tendons, and promoting activity of joints, which were stronger and lasted longer timeas compared with general simple acupuncture. Particularly, it had obvious analgesic effect on pain syndrome induced by chronic refractory soft tissue diseases. It is indicated that the mechanism is mainly eliminating aseptic inflammation, increasing local blood supply, relaxing muscular spasm, so as to stop pain caused by inflammation, ischemia and spasm. In deeply acupuncture, long, fine needles are placed on the back to achieve the desired therapeutic effects on deep parts of the lower back. This technique has yielded outstanding results for thousands of patients in China, and has become recognized worldwide as one of the most effective methods for the treatment of a wide variety of difficult-to-manage pain conditions and this technique has been very popular in China.



A:How does your pain relief Acupuncture differ from traditional acupuncture?



Zak Han:Pain relief acupunctue is kind of acupuncture.The major differences is for most conditions results tend to be faster and more effective.In spite of elminating aseptic inflammation, A study found that the technique also can turn off parts of the brain involved in pain, which could explain how the practice may work as an anaesthetic. and The locations of the needling is different. Although the back has numerous traditionally identified acupuncture points along several of the major meridians, My pain relief acupuncture has its own unique treatment zones.In total,It must totally relive all the tenderness point , then can truly cure chronic pain.



A:How does your pain relief Acupuncture differ from other deeply acupuncture methods?



Zak Han:One main difference between my pain relief Acupuncture and other styles is that  needles are longer and many needles,but almost painless ,as my long-term medical surgeon backgrand and 20 years experiences in acupuncture practice. Of course,The anatomy of selected points, patient's body size; age and constitution all play a role in determining depth of needle insertion. My treatment areas are also located differently,for example :pain site on appropriate trasverse cervical process always associated with headache,migraine,inter scapular pain and cervical spondulosis,area od sacro-iliac joint associated with low back pain,sciatica without neurological deficit,testicular pain,and coracoid process associated with painful shouler joint,medial condyle tibia associated with knee pain ,without advanced pathology,neck of femur associated hip pain ,without major changes evident on X-ray,Lateral aspect of posterior spine of lower lumbar vertebrae,if sacro-iliac joint,as above,does not yield benefif,then there areas may be used. and My ways of manipulating the needles are unique,and sometime plus electroacupuncture(work by the "gate theory" of pain. The principle of the gate theory is that if you can make the nerve recognize a sensation other than pain--such as heat, rubbing, or electrical current--your central nervous system "closes the gate" on any other sensations. This means the pain doesn't register. Electrical currents get to the spinal column much faster than pain impulses, so they are pretty effective at closing that gate). In addition, the simultaneous use of physical and mental exercises greatly enhance our therapeutic results.(some content adapted from Felix Mann MB)



A:Do deeply needles puncture into the organ?



Zak Han:No, The needles used in my pain relief Acupuncture has been good controled by myself.that it is impossible to puncture into organ. Practitioners are trained to avoid needling into important areas,of course,experience and medical backgrand are nessesary.



A:Can Zak pain relief acupuncture cause paralysis?



.Zak Han:No,It can't .The spinal cord stops high up in the spine (lumbar 1) so there are only nerve roots in the lumbar spine. Nerve roots are very tough structures, so even a sizable disc herniation is very unlikely to cause paralysis ,not to say needles putting on acu-point which located on outside of spinal cord.



A:Do deeply needles cause bleeding or infection?



Zak Han: Although the back is richly supplied with blood vessels, there are no large arteries within the treatment zones of my pain relief Acupuncture. Therefore bleeding is rare and, when present, is so minimal that it can be stopped easily by light pressure on the bleeding site. Every practitioner of my pain relief Acupuncture routinely follows an antiseptic procedure on the back, employing only sterilized, single-use disposable needles. The risk of infection is extremely low. Special care is also taken to not needles into inflamed areas.



A:What medical conditions respond well to Zak pain relief acupuncture?



.Zak Han: My pain relief Acupuncture treats the same variety of diseases as body acupuncture. However, it is effective most notably in the treatment of chronic pain and nervous system disorders. Specific examples include: acute and chronic lower back pain syndromes, spinal cord injuries, sciatica,Feeling cold leg ,Orbital pain. Trigeminal neuralgia. Reflex sciatica. Buttock pain. Knee pain. Foot Pain Piriformis Syndrome ,Tennis Elbow,Genital pain( Scrotal pain,Testicular pain,Vaginal pain)Sexual pain,infertility,Urinary frequency,Urgency and Urge incontineuce,Dysmenorrhea.,,,, please noted :ZAK PAIN RELIEF ACUPUNCTURE SPECIALISE IN TREATING CHRONIC AND DIFFICULT BACK PAIN CASES WHICH HAVE NOT RESPONDED TO MEDICAL, CHIROPRACTIC OR OSTEOPATHIC TREATMENT.



A:Are there clinical tests demonstrating the efficacy of this acupuncture?



Zak Han:Yes. Many clinical reports from China indicate a high degree of effectiveness, many in cases where body acupuncture had not been sufficiently effective.(see my website) I have practiced acupuncture including deeply acupuncture and general acupuncture over 22 years,Most patients we have treated come from word of mouth, and received a referral from a loved one who has received help from me. There is no guarantee in helping all patients with chronic back pain but most of patient who have been given this treatment can be helped.and you also can find a lot of information about my techniques from my website.





A: Very complicated,Good.Thank you very much!

.Zak Han: You’re welcome!



Patient ask Zak about back pain and treatment.....
Patient: Zak,I would be interested in starting off with how you first became interested in back pain?

Zak: I became interested in back pain when I became a military doctor in Chinese army hospital. I was exposed to large numbers of people with back pain.After a few years working with the conventional treatments, I came to the conclusion that there was something terribly wrong, because a lot of my patients are still in pain.I found that large numbers of people in whom the pain was being attributed to some structural abnormality actually just had soft tissue inflammation.

Patient: Are the soft tissue inflammation that lead to back pain, very common?

Zak: Yes,It is more than back pain. it also can lead to neck pain,shoulder pain,knee pain ,hip pain,ankle pain,etc.

Patient: What about the physiology?

Zak. What is actually causing the pain in these people is not the herniated disc, or some of those other structural things, but a condition of soft tissue inflammation due to chronic injuries, which can lead to chemical stimulation in particular area. This stimulation is what causes pain in back.

Patient: Are you saying that this inflamed soft tissue is the underlying cause for all back pain?

Zak: Yes. and If soft tissue inflammation involves a tendon around the knee, the patient will have a painful tendon there.Shoulder pain is also very common now,reason is same.

Patient: According to your theory, structural abnormalities don't even contribute to the condition,But,About the disc surgery, why do many cases have analgesic effects of different degrees?

Zak :Well,Firstly,(1)About the surgery of spinal soft tissue damage , it's mainly because that spinal surgeons unconsciously incise and strip  those damaged tissue where the muscle and fascia are connected to the bone and this area also is palce where pain comes from. (2) And about mixed spinal soft tissue damage, the surgeons also unwittingly release adipose tissue lesions located on epidural and outside of nerve sheath. But, because this release is incomplete, in most cases ,It can only achieve the analgesic effect without truly and effectively curing pain, even if such analgesia is achieved, it's merely due to soft tissue lesions were released, not due to disc was taken out. Disc surgery only has short-term satisfactory effects, and in most cases there are various degrees of ease after operation, or in some cases ,the pain temporarily disappears. However, the long-term effect would be very poor, it's easy to relapse after two years. It's therefore being named :Failed Back Surgery Syndrome(FBSS) in the international meeting.

Patient: This is a very different approach from other back-pain professionals.

Zak: Yes, it is. it's important to make the right diagnosis. If you make the wrong diagnosis,it will hard to get relief.

Patient: Let's move on to treatment. What should patients with back pain do? What should their doctors do?

Zak: Deep and intensive acupuncture,which can lead to circulation better and less inflammation,then pain will go away. According to the theory about this soft tissue diseases and Chinese medicine thoery:”The pressure pain point was selected as needled point", Deeply needling with many needles to reach the bone and tendon at surroundings of the joint of lesion was adopted and the mechanism of deeply and Intensive needle therapy in treatment of soft tissue diseases was investigated. RESULTS: This therapy had functions of dredging channels, activating blood circulation and alleviating pain, relaxing muscles and tendons, and promoting activity of joints, which were stronger and lasted longer timeas compared with general simple acupuncture. Particularly, it had obvious analgesic effect on pain syndrome induced by chronic refractory soft tissue diseases.
