Appendictis Colic Colitis Treatment

Appendicitis

Appendix is vestigial, unnecessary part of intestine, that extends for 3 1/2-inch from the large intestine. Appendicitis is inflammation of appendix. Appendicitis may however resolve completely most of time or get into chronic stage. Chronic stage may give constant or intermittent pain at right lower abdomen.  Appendicitis can be a medical emergency that may requires surgery to remove the appendix. Left untreated, an inflamed appendix may burst, or perforate, spilling infectious materials into the abdominal cavity creating emergency.

How do suspect appendicitis?

The classic symptoms of appendicitis include:  Dull pain in right flank, nausea vomiting, fever, abdominal fullness.  Pain may be anywhere in abdomen. Acute appendicitis needs to be managed in hospital set up.

Acupuncture helps non-operative management of acute and chronic appendicitis pain and inflammation.  Results of treatment of appendicitis with acupuncture are far better than without.

In experience of Dr Pardeshi Acupuncture pain Therapy, treatment of chronic appendicitis in Nashik is treatable far better by acupuncture than standard protocol. It is interesting to note that many of frequent episodes of “chronic appendicitis” may not be appendicitis at all. Therefore many of unnecessary appendicectomes are avoided.

“Pilot data suggest that acupuncture may be a feasible and effective treatment modality for decreasing subjective pain and inflammation as measured by WBC. Acupuncture may be a useful non-pharmacological intervention for treating patients with acute appendicitis pain.”

Abdominal Colic Pain Treatment

 

Acupuncture for biliary colic and renal colic is recommended for reducing pain and spasms. Several clinical studies have shown acupuncture to perform better than standard drug treatment (intramuscular injection of atropine, pethidine, anisodamine, bucinnazine or bucinperazine, or a metamizole-camylofin combination). Results showed that acupuncture brings greater pain relief in a faster response time, plus without any side-effects. Acupuncture for gallstones is also beneficial. Studies have shown it can improve the secretion of bile, relieve colicky pain, and can also aid the expulsion of the stones by way of encouraging the energy flow to flush the stones through the system. Acupuncture for abdominal colic e.g. acute gastroenteritis or gastrointestinal spasm has also been trialled and found to be successful. Other biliary and renal related conditions that can be treated with acupuncture and TCM include: Gastric, Gallstones, Duodenal, Urinary stones, Intestinal, Uterine (Dysmenorrheal). Dr Pardeshi Acupuncture Pain Therapy reminds patients that acupuncture relives pain; basic pathology need to be treated accordingly to cause.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Treatment

When muscles in large intestine contract faster or slower than normal, it causes pain, cramping, gassiness, sudden bouts of diarrhea, and constipation. There may be alternating bouts of constipation and diarrhea, or diarrhea-predominant IBS, or constipation-predominant IBS. Though the symptoms can be difficult to live with, IBS doesn’t cause permanent damage to intestine. Incidence is twice in women than men. Persons between 5 to 10% suffer from IBS. It peaks between the ages of 20 to 39 but it can occur at any age and is often associated with stress.

Treatment

The goal of treatment is to relieve symptoms. For some people, changing their diet may reduce symptoms. Adding more fibre and avoiding stimulants, such as caffeine, may help. Reducing anxiety by getting regular exercise and seeking counselling may also be helpful. Stress reduction techniques, such as biofeedback, hypnosis, dietary changes, or counselling may help. Dr Pardeshi Acupuncture Pain Therapy has given patients with IBS great relief with treatment with its treatment in Nashik.

Conclusions

Acupuncture for irritable bowel syndrome provided an additional benefit over usual care alone. The magnitude of the effect was sustained over the longer term. Acupuncture should be considered as a treatment option to be offered in primary care alongside other evidenced based treatments.”
