Acupuncture for Appendicitis


Appendicitis is a painful swelling(inflammation) of the appendix, which is tissue shaped like a pouch connected to the large intestine. The causes of an inflamed appendix are usually due from a blockage of stool that could cause an infection or from a tumor.


Appendicitis is the cause of the most emergency surgeries in the United States, fortunately there are no complications of not having one, but complications can occur during surgery. Appendicitis pain is felt in the lower right side of the abdomen and can cause other symptoms like:
  1. Nausea
  2. Loss of appetite
  3. Abdominal swelling
  4. Fever
  5. Trouble urinating
When the appendix becomes inflamed and painful it doesn't take too long for it to get worse and cause more symptoms to occur. It is also likely to rupture when the symptoms are really bad, which leads to a recommended emergency surgery. When it comes to acupuncture there is actually one point that when palpated can indicate there is a problem in the appendix. It is also one of the only points that is located on one side of the body, which is on the right leg.

The name of the point in Chinese is Lanweixue, which translates to Appendix Point. This point is located about 5 inches below the knee joint along the right side of the Tibia bone. If this point is palpated and feels tender, it will indicate a blockage. If there is tenderness at this point along with one or more of the above symptoms it most likely indicates appendicitis and medical attention should be sought out.

If this point is needled by an acupuncturist it can help reduce the feelings of pain and temporarily reduce other symptoms. Although, because appendicitis can lead to a rupture it is better to be safe and go to your primary care doctor for a complete check up and possible x-rays to see if the appendix is in danger of rupturing.

If you or anyone you know is concerned about their appendix being inflamed, palpating the Appendix Point is one good way to know that there is something wrong with appendix. I hope this has been an informative article for you and if you have any questions or comments please let me know. Thank you!
