Mini Ren Acupuncture of Qian Ci Jie Jie (MRA-QCJJ) Therapy defines as a treatment method by using tiny blade acupuncture needle to break up nodules, which is a highly effective, simple, and safe treatment for pain caused by soft tissue injuries. It not only achieves immediate results but also provides long-term efficacy.
The targets of MRA-QCJJ are scar adhesion tissue, myofascial trigger points, and tense spasmodic soft tissue. From a histological perspective, they are all abnormally high-tension nodules. Although the nodules may vary in shape, size, depth, and direction, they all cause pathological tissue that produces tenderness, pain, or nerve compression. Therefore, from the perspective of pain treatment, the concept of Nodular Pain Syndrome has been proposed, which indicates that soft tissue injury pain is visible, tangible, and objectively exists in the form of nodules (spasms). This nodular pain can exist in the outermost skin, shallow fascia, deep fascia, deep muscles, tendons and ligaments, bone membranes, joint capsules, etc., corresponding to the traditional Chinese medicine theory of “Pi Bi, Rou Bi, Jin Bi, Mai Bi, Gu Bi”, which the bi pain was caused by stagnations of qi and blood in different levels.
The proposal of Nodular Pain Syndrome simplifies the diagnosis and treatment process of MRA-QCJJ Therapy for soft tissue injury pain. By evaluating the patient’s functional impairment, observing the swelling of the affected area, changes in skin color, and body temperature, combined with the palpable nodules and tense skin and muscle tissue, the nodules can be quickly broke-up with a mini blade needle, releasing the tension inside and outside the nodules, eliminating inflammatory pain chemicals. At the same time, the physical stimulation of the blade needle can relax spasmodic muscle and soft tissue, improve local blood circulation, and achieve immediate results.
