BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The present invention relates to a method, and especially a method for treating a human's pain.

2. Description of the Related Art

The physiology maintains stable via nervous system and circulatory system that affect each other Therefore, when a patient has a pain on a specific portion of the patient's body, a correlative portion of the body has a reactive symptom due probably to a variation of the function of sympathetic nerve. The symptom on the correlative portion may be a deep pressure pain or a change of the cutaneous blood flow. When the specific portion is injured on a skin, the effectiveness is not very satisfactory if a doctor directly heal the specific portion. Although the treatment of the correlative portion with the reactive symptom can cure the specific portion feeling pain, how to find the correlative portion of the patient is not clear.

To overcome the shortcomings, the present invention provides a method for treating a treatment point to decrease a pain in a pain point on the patient to mitigate or obviate the aforementioned problems.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The objective of the present invention is to provide a method for treating as human's pain so that a doctor can directly heal a treatment point to decrease a pain in a pain point on a patient.

To achieve the foregoing objective, the present invention has a method for treating a human's pain in accordance with the present invention has a providing a manikin step being providing a manikin having multiple pain points and multiple treatment points defined on the manikin; a providing at least one contrasted table step being providing at least one contrasted table connecting with the pain points and the treatment points and having a whole nerved-illustration; and a finding a patient's correlative treatment points step being finding the patient's correlative treatment points to at least one of the pain point. Therefore a doctor can heal the patient's treatment points without healing the patient's pain point.

Other objectives, advantages and novel features of the invention will become more apparent from the following detailed description when taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

With reference to FIGS. 1 and 2, a method for treating a human's pain in accordance with the present invention comprises steps of (a) providing a manikin, (b) providing at least one contrasted table and (c) finding correlative treatment points.

The providing a manikin step is providing a manikin having multiple pain points and multiple treatment points defined on the manikin.

The providing at least one contrasted table step is establishing at least one contrasted table connecting with the pain points and the treatment points and having a whole nerved-illustration.

The finding correlative treatment points step is finding correlative treatment points to at least one of the pain points.

The term “at least one contrasted table” including tabs. 2 to 5.

The rule of the present invention is explained after names of the pain points and treatment points are introduced. The manikin with the whole nerved-illustration has twelve pairs of symmetrical nerve bands (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12) and four central nerve bands (13, 14, 15, 16). In FIGS. 1 and 2, the nerve bands (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16) are marked with different oblique line. The nerve bands of the pairs are first nerve bands (1), second nerve bands (2), third nerve bands (3), fourth nerve bands (4), fifth nerve bands (5), sixth nerve bands (6), seventh nerve bands (7), eighth nerve bands (8), ninth nerve bands (9), tenth nerve bands (10), eleventh nerve bands (11) and twelfth nerve bands (12). The nerve bands (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12) of each pair are formed symmetrically on the manikin according to an axis of the manikin. Two central nerve bands (14, 15) correspond respectively to an upper half and a lower half of a governing vessel along a central axis on the manikin and are as called fourteenth and fifteenth nerve bands (14, 15) respectively. The other two central nerve bands (13, 16) correspond respectively to an upper half and a lower half of a conception vessel and are called thirteenth and sixteenth nerve bands (13, 16).

A naming rule of the pain point and the treatment point is introduced as follows.

1. The manikin is divided into two sides, which are a left (L) and a right (R).

2. The entire nerve bands (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16) are marked with number showing on following Tab. 1.

3. The manikin is also divided into eight portions according to main joints, which are a head (H), a trunk (T), a pair of arms (Shoulder, S), a pair of forearms (Elbow, E), a pair of Hands (Wrist, W), a pair of thighs (Legs, L), a pair of legs (Knees, K) and a pair of Feet (Ankle, A).

4. Each portions of nerve band (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16) is divided into ten equal parts marked with 0 to 10 from an upper end to a lower end of the eight portions such as H, T, S, E, W, L, K or A, which are a zeroth pan, a first part, a second part, a third part, a fourth part, a fifth part, a sixth part, a seventh part, an eighth part, a ninth part and a tenth part. The upper ends of the first to twelfth nerve bands (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12) are located at a top of the head or the trunk on the manikin. The upper ends of thirteenth and sixteenth nerve bands (13, 16) are located at the junction of chest and abdomen on the manikin. The upper ends of the fourteenth and the fifteenth nerve bands (14, 15) are located on a middle of a back on the manikin.

A displaying rule of the pain points and the treatment points is introduced as follows.

Each of the pain points or treatment points is shown with a set of four symbols that are marked on an outer surface of the manikin. A first symbol, such as H, T, S, E, W, L, K or A, means one of the eight portions of the manikin. A second symbol, such as 1 to 16, means one of the nerve bands (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16). A third symbol, such as 0 to 10, means one of the equal parts of one portion of the manikin. The second symbol and the third symbol is divided by a comma “,”. The fourth symbol, such as L, R or B, means the left, right or bilateral on the manikin, For example, T2.8R means a position located at the eighth part of the second nerve band (2) on the right trunk of the manikin.

In addition, “0”, the zeroth part of each portion of each nerve bands (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16), can be ignored. For example, E1.0R may be abbreviated to E1R and W2.0R may be abbreviated to W2R. An uppermost portion on the nerve band (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16) can also be ignored. For example, T1R may be abbreviated to 1R and H2R may be abbreviated to 2R.

Before looking for the treatment point, a user must know what sex is a patient and know a character of the pain is asthenia syndrome or sthenia syndrome.

The rule of the present invention is explained as follows.

1. The user determines whether character of the pain of the patient's pain point is asthenia syndrome or sthenia syndrome. When the user presses the patient's pain point and the patient feels more pain on the pain point, the pain is sthenia syndrome. When the user presses the patient's pain point and the patient feels less pain on the pain point, and the pain is asthenia syndrome. Then the user determines to apply a straight treatment or a cross treatment to the patient according to the patient's gender, character of a pain and laterality of the pain point, as shown in following Tab. 2.

2. The user determines which nerve band (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16) is correlative according to above treatment point and pain point, as shown in following Tabs. 3a, 3b, 3c and 3d.

a. The straight treatment means that a pain point and a correlative treatment point to the pain point are arranged in the same column in Tabs. 3a, 3b, 3c and 3d so the user should find the correlative treatment point in the same column where the pain point is located. For example, a pain point is located on the first nerve band (1) and its correlative treatment point is located on the fourth nerve band (4). A pain point is located on the fourth nerve band (4) and its correlative treatment point is located on the first nerve band (1). A pain point is located on the second nerve band (2) and its correlative treatment point is located on the third nerve band (3). A pain point is located on the third nerve band (3) and its correlative treatment is located on the second nerve band (2).

b. The cross treatment means that a pain point and a correlative treatment point to the pain point are diagonally arranged respectively in different columns in Tabs. 3a, 3b, 3c and 3d so the user should find the correlative treatment point in another column different from the column where the pain point is located. For example, a pain point is located on the first nerve band (1) and its correlative treatment point is located on the third nerve band (3). A pain point is located on the third nerve band (3) and its correlative treatment point is located on the first nerve band (1). A pain point is located on the second nerve band (2) and its correlative treatment point is located on the fourth nerve band (4). A pain point is located on the fourth nerve band (4) and its correlative treatment point is located on the second nerve band (2).

In Tab. 3a, the first, second, third and fourth nerve bands (1, 2, 3, 4) are grouped together.

4. The user determines where portion of the manikin the correlative treatment point is located according to Tab. 4.

A set of symbol “*.*” includes two symbols “*”. A first symbol “*” means one of the nerve bands (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10). A second symbol “*” means one of the equal parts of one portion of the manikin and may be 1 to 10.

Therefore, when the user inputs data including character of the pain, gender and laterality of the pain point into the control unit (21), a correlative treatment point is found via that the control unit (21) compares the inputted data with the database inside the control unit (21).

EXAMPLE 1

With reference to FIGS. 4 and 5, a female has a pain point on the right elbow of the first nerve band marked with a set of symbols of E1R. The character of the pain is asthenia syndrome. According to the rule of the present invention, the correlative treatment point to the pain point is on the fourth nerve band (4) of the right knee marked with a set of symbols of K4R on the ipsilateral side of the manikin where the pain point is located or the third nerve band (3) of the left knee marked with a set of symbols of K3L on the contralateral side of the manikin where the pain point is located.

EXAMPLE 2

With reference to FIGS. 4 and 5, a female has a pain point on the first nerve band (1) of the third part of the right upper arm marked with a set of symbols of S1.3R. The syndrome of the pain on the pain point is asthenia syndrome, According to the rule of the present invention, the correlative treatment point is on the fourth nerve band (4) of the third part of the right thigh marked with a set of symbols of L4.3R on the ipsilateral side of the manikin where the pain point is located or the third nerve band (3) of the third part of the left thigh marked with a set of symbols of L3.3L on the contralateral side of the manikin where the pain point is located.

Therefore, a user determines a character of a pain of a pain point and which side the pain point is located on of the manikin. Then according to the rule, the user can easily find a correlative treatment point,
