Hand - Fingers Pain Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for hand - fingers pain. It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "hand - fingers pain" is rarely designed with the resulting "hand - fingers pain" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.

Some acupuncture points are considered "empirically" related to a specific condition or diagnostic pattern. While this would rarely, if ever, dictate the entire composition of a treatment, the following points should be considered, possibly even more so within the context of acupressure:
