A 10 year old very chubby boy came in with his mother. He was wearing a foot brace on the left foot. About 1 year ago, he started to see an orthopedic doctor but didn’t see any improvement.

I asked her why he was wearing foot brace, and his mother told me with tears that he was diagnosed with Avascular Necrosis of Femoral Head, and surgery was scheduled in two months. She did not expect us to fix his son’s necrosis, but she wanted us to reduce his pain at least.

I said, “Let’s do the best we can until he gets surgery.”

I decided to start with his body weight. It was obvious his heavy weight was not going to help him at all. Therefore, herbal decoction to reduce appetite and promote blood circulation was given. Meanwhile, acupuncture point “Kidney Tonify” for strengthening the bone and “Stomach sedate cold” for controlling stomach meridian. After five treatments, the patient and his mother went to the hospital to check, and doctors at the hospital were very surprised at the results.

They said, they don’t understand how it could happen.

It is very common to see in the Oriental Medicine field that there are lots of things that can be treated without surgery. It is very much recommended to consult with Oriental Medicine practitioner before you get the surgery.
