Example text

The search for the source of trouble by defining areas of tenderness is often confused by the patients calling attention to areas of referred tenderness. But referred tenderness is rarely conspicuous, and I have found it a useful guide to consider tenderness to be referred unless the patient winces under the palpation of a given spot. When these acutely tender spots were not too extensive they were infiltrated with 1% Novocain … This infiltration often produced relief of the symptoms and signs, and sometimes abolished them completely.

He then proceeds to describe five cases including two with pain and restricted movement of the shoulder joint, one with pain around the coccyx following labour, one with persistent pain around the os calcis, and one with long-standing pain around the wrist following trauma. He expresses the opinion that cases suitable for acupuncture include trauma to muscle, stretching or tearing of muscle or tendon, and disuse pain. Certainly, even by today’s standards, this is a reasonably comprehensive list of ‘surgical’ indications.
