Acupuncture never ceases to amaze me... Ganglion cyst treatment #4 - the cyst basically disappeared..
Ganglion cysts are the most common soft-tissue tumors found within the hand and wrist region.
A 28-year-old female patient complaining of a ganglion cyst on the back of the right wrist came in for acupuncture to alleviate the resulting discomfort. As an office worker, her primary concerns involved pain and interference with function as well as unpleasant appearance.
Upon palpation, a hard, soft tissue nodule was found on the back of the wrist. It was painful with pressure but the patient could continue to move her wrist. Initially measuring 1cm by 1 cm, the patient wished to reduce the size of the cyst.
After I treated the patient for three sessions over a week and a half with high frequency electroacupuncture, the patient reported that the ganglion cyst was no longer present.
