When these ligaments are lax changes, intra-abdominal pressure and abdominal muscle relaxation and other factors fall, it will form Gastroptosis. As well as women who has done abdominal surgery has high chance of suffer Gastroptosis.

    Chinese medicine also believe that the main reason for this disease is due to the long-term eating disorders,  excessive load of the stomach,  excessive or injured workers, causing subsidence in the air, (increase pressure).

 胃下垂的病因

               張良醫師

    健康的胃,不論是坐或站立時,胃形状的改變甚少。有胃下垂問題者,當站立時,胃的下沿到達盤腔。

    胃下垂病因目前尚不明確,學說多不一致。正常的胃被周圍韌帶吊住,不致下垂,主要韌帶有胃隔韌帶,胃脾韌帶與胃結腸韌帶等。當這些韌帶有鬆弛變化時,腹腔內受壓下降及腹肌鬆弛等因素,就會形成胃下垂。如曾多次做腹部手術及產婦較多患上此症。

    中醫也有認為本病的主要原因,是由於長期飲食失調,如過度使胃負荷,或勞傷過度等,引致中氣下陷,(壓力加增)。輕微的胃下垂並無症狀,不需治療。下垂明顯病者有消化系統不適症狀,如上腹不適、易飽脹、厭食、頂心噯氣,亦可有便秘、腹瀉或腹部隱隱作痛.

                    What is rib neuralgia? 

The so-called rib nerves is nerves along the chest, ribs, from the back through the flanks, until the chest .

what is the rib neuralgia Ribs neuralgia is the pain along rib nerves through the chest, abdomen. Especially, when turning the body, laugh out loud, deep breathing, yawning, feel the chest to the flanks or from the back to flanks get a strong pain.

The main causes of the rib neuralgia  is vertebra illness or pleural adhesion. There are other factors, such as excessive force, bruises, sprains, bruised, Irregular sleep, etc., can also cause rib neuralgia.

So far Western medicine (in the future unknowns) do not have effects treatment for rib neuralgia. Western medicine can only increase the nutrition and strengthen the abdominal muscles, back muscles, chest exercise, and physical therapy efforts to alleviate pain conditions. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) places regulation of  “qi” and blood,  strengthen the spleen and stomach of the body. The effectiveness is low,  and cannot curve this disease completely either.

什么是肋骨神经痛?

所謂肋骨神經,是沿著胸部肋骨,由背後經側腹,一直到胸前神經。

肋骨神經痛就是沿著這條神經,經胸部,腹部呈半環狀疼痛。尤其在轉身、出聲笑、深呼吸、打哈欠時都會感覺到胸部到側腹或是由背部到側腹產生強烈痛感,這就是肋骨神經痛。

肋骨神經痛的主要原因是由於舂椎生病或是肋膜粘合,但還有其它原因,如用力過度、撞傷、扭傷、壓傷、睡眠不正確等等,都可引起肋骨神經痛。

註:西醫至目前為止 ( 將來未知數 ) 還未有特效方法治療,只有增加營養與加強腹肌、背肌、胸肌鍛煉及物理治療方面下功夫,以減輕疼痛狀況。中醫則以行氣活血,健脾養胃等中藥治療,效果緩慢,並且也不是百份百可以治療。

反射帶治療法從何而來?

張良醫師

   反射帶療法發源於印度,然後再傳至中國。正式傳入中國時,大約是公元前五百至六百年之間。

然而,因我們通常都用經絡、穴位、草藥等的治療法,因此不太注重反射帶療法。 最近因為吳神父的關係,腳底按摩才流行起來。
