Swollen Ankle

My new patient came in limping with a purple swollen ankle. He felt so bad he hadn’t shaved or been to work in days.

I decided to try Japanese acupuncture and palpated points on his ankle and treated him accordingly.

The pain stopped throbbing, the purple started turning back to its normal flesh color, and the swelling eased a bit.

His spirits rose and he was back at work the next day.
