Confucius

Acupuncture for Pleurisy

Pleurisy is inflammation in the pleura membrane of chest cavity and lungs. The main symptom is a sharp or stabbing pain in your chest that gets worse when you breathe in deeply or cough or sneeze. Sometimes the pain may spread to the shoulder or back. There are other symptoms such as short breath, cough, fever, and unexplained weight loss.

How does acupuncture work for Pleurisy

Acupuncture can relieve pleurisy symptoms, such as chest, shoulder and /or back pain; reduce or get rid of cough or sneeze, fever and underlying causes by stimulating immune system to increase more nutrients and immune cells to the involved area and speed up healing.

Course of treatment

There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
