Lumbar Canal Stenosis with Paraparesis and Asthama
Mrs. Sukhda chadha, aged 60 years, developed paralysis of her right leg along with numbness in May,2001. Gradually the left leg also became weaker. Her situation became so bad that she was totally bedridden and had to use a walker for support to walk at home. She came to us in february,2002. An examination of the patient revealed that she had lumbar canal stenosis which had resulted in gradual reduction of blood circulation to her legs with constant pain in the legs and numbness and gradually diminishing muscle power.
Acupuncture treatment was started from 12th Feb,2002 . Initially she was given daily treatment for over 1 month. She showed such tremendous improvement that her leg pains disappeared and she felt more active. After 3 months of treatment by May ,202, she was able to leave her walker and walk independently.
Now in July 2002, she takes only twice a week treatments and her muscle power is returned to near normal. She also had a chronic bronchial asthma since last 20 years for which she was on heavy medication. We concomitantly also treated her for asthma and now she is fully cured and does not use any medication for the same.
