Title : Therapeutic application of personalised acupuncture point injection therapy with placental extract
Human placental extract has been used to treat fatigue, post-menopausal symptoms, wound-healing, and growth retardation in Korea. Combined with acupuncture therapy, placental extract extends its therapeutic limit to pain control. Our previous studies demonstrated that acupuncture point injection (API) with placental extract modulated inflammation-involving pain symptoms in chronic pain diseases. Placental extract was injected into acupuncture points localized on the joints, surrounding muscles acting in concert with the joints, and paravertebral muscles affecting the innervation of the joints. Customized API therapy with placental extract is attained by choosing a peculiar composite of acupuncture points depending on which regions the patients feel pain and what other clinical symptoms patients individually experience. Here, we describe the theory of customized API with placental extract and its therapeutic application for treating joint diseases.
