The Chinese Medicine Treatment of Headaches


Chief Complaint: headaches

Medical History: female patient in her mid-thirties came to me five weeks ago. she had a whiplash in 98. Got rear endend by a car on the freeway with 80 km/h . Unfortunately she had her head turned and the SCM (Sternocleidomastoideus group) left went out and ruptured. Since then patient complains about headaches that are not specific at all. Can be occipital, temporal, not depending on weather . I could not find a pattern whatsoever…

CT was ok, Vertebrae did not show any damages whatsoever. No neurological absences or problems. No nausea. Patient works in computer company and sits in front of the screen frequently.
