Points -  Ask the Doctor

Q: I have a tremor of the head when my head is downturned or turned to the left. This may be related to carotid surgery I had several years ago on the left side. Can acupuncture help relieve this symptom?

A: Acupuncture may help your condition. The greatest function of acupuncture is to promote the smooth flow or circulation of blood and energy. It is very common for surgery to create a blockage or change in circulation. This change in circulation may lead to a lack of adequate nourishment and problems with smooth function for the muscles and other tissues in the area. You may still have a scar left over from your carotid surgery. It takes the body time to reabsorb scar tissue. Please be patient with your body and consistent with your treatment.
