Appointments with Dr VX No2 TCM Acupuncture & Massage King-20-11-19 till 28-1-20
The initial visit was on 20 November 2019.I had injured my right knee cap and joint(and right leg hamstring) and had around 10 months earlier injured my left shoulder joint. Dr VX at Parramatta completed a number of Acupuncture, Acupressure and follow up massage treatments after each appointment.
There was considerable pain in and around the right knee joint and hamstring muscle since the injury in Aug 2019.The left shoulder had been injured some time ago. I needed the assistance of the walking stick to help with mobility
and walking longer distances on uneven ground.
The series of acupuncture/acupressure and follow up massage of the injuries gradually improved my mobility so that after nine weeks I was able to walk longer and longer distance on even ground without the use of the stick. I was able to complete the lawn cut both front and rear at home(4 and 1/2 Hrs)
The pain recovery after each treatment became diminished as the strength and agility of the knee improved. My overall mobility had improved from a seventy % dependence on the walking stick to currently around 30% dependence on the walking stick on uneven ground and in managing flights of many stairs.
on 25-01-20 Dr VX completed some tests for the blood once the acupuncture of the left shoulder ended and he discussed the overall outcomes of his treatments. Dr VX found that there were circulation problems and that he will prepare traditional medicine to assist with treatment for this condition. I am very pleased with the overall outcomes after the treatments by Dr VX.
I am very thankful for Dr VX’s treatments over the last 10 weeks. My mobility, strength in the right knee and easing of the pain in the left shoulder is a very good outcome.
Appointment -Acupuncture-Massage 14 January 2020
Appointment 14 January 2020
The appointment began with massage of shoulers back and right knee joint(45 minutes)
There was feedback to Dr VX about the previous treatment. There is a marked improvement of mobility and there have been times in last few days walkikng on level surface without the aid of walking stick(3 hours of gardening-weeding and pruning Bougainvillia near the clothes line area). Also while walking from car park and on level surface walking without stick.
The acupuncture of the right knee joint and the left shoulder joint has increased the strength in both an improved my mobility without walking stick. I still require the walking stick on uneven surfaces and in walking up and down on many steps in staircase without handrails
Appointment -Acupuncture-Massage 11 January 2020
The appointment began with a massage of the back and left shoulder and hamstring(right leg)(45 Minutes)
Dr VX asked about the last treatment. The gradual improvement of both mobility and strength in both the knee and left shoulder was evident. Again the length of time without the need of the walking stick increased markedly and this was very welcomed.
The acupuncture/acupressure treatment stretched the pain barrier in both the knee joint and hamstring .My ability to stretch and bend the right leg was a major improvement from the earlier treatments. Both mobility , strength and endurance of the right #knee and joint was very present from the previous treatment and in fact the pain level at the top of the knee was negligible.
The pai level in the left shoulder was 3. The recovery time also reduced for both the shoulder and knee.
The gradual improvement was very welcome.

Appointment-Acupuncture/Acupressure/Massage 9 January 2020
Dr VX asked how the previous treatment affected both knee, shoulder and hamstring. Again there is gradual improvement of strength and mobility in my right leg and ease of movement in the left shoulder. There was a cramp in the hamstring during the acupuncture. The cramp eased during the the acupuncture. The recovery time of the acupuncture again lessened and both mobility and strength improved to the extent of lengthy periods of time in home duties without the need of the walking stick.
The left shoulder and joint was still tender during the treatment. However the pain level reduced to 3 in the shoulder joint.
The appointment ended with a massage of the knee and joint and muscles and the left shoulder joint and surrounding muscles.
Again the gradual improvement of shoulder and knee was pleasing.

The appointment for Acupuncture/Acu- pressure/Massage 7 January 2020
Dr Vx asked how the right knee and left shoulder were after the last treatment. There is a gradual improvement in my mobility and strength
I can walk further without the help of the walking stick. I feel that the knee has more endurance and strength.
The left shoulder joint is still sensitive to movement under stress.However the recovery time of both the acupuncture for the left shoulder and right leg knee cap and joint is lesser and lesser.
Dr VX completed the acupuncture/acupressure on both the knee and left shoulder. there is level 5 pain in the knee joint when placed under stress. There also is level5-6 pain in hamstring muscle during the acupuncture. This reduces to 3 at the top of the knee during treatment and to level 3-4 pain in
the left shoulder during the acupuncture treatment. The appointment ended with a massage of the right knee cap and surrounding muscles and a massage of the left shoulder and muscles of the shoulder.(45 minutes)
