Sophisticated Therapy Methods for Various Contemporary Diseases

Dr Diec Kha Han, Specialist Level I, Head of the FV’s Traditional Medicine Department, emphasises that traditional medicine excels in methods that stimulate the nervous system, blood circulation, and body metabolism. These methods help regulate internal disorders, thereby improving overall health. The benefits of these treatments are long-lasting and generally have fewer complications post-treatment. The Traditional Medicine Department at FV is highly regarded for treating conditions such as:

  • Sciatica, post-herpetic neuralgia, peripheral facial nerve paralysis (Bell’s palsy), trigeminal neuralgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, vestibular disorders, anxiety disorders, insomnia, tension headaches, and migraines.
  • Musculoskeletal disorders: osteoarthritis, spinal degeneration, mild to moderate disc herniation, rheumatoid arthritis, neck-shoulder pain, tendonitis from tennis/golf elbow, periarthritis of the shoulder, and plantar fasciitis.
  • Rehabilitation post-stroke and other chronic conditions.

Depending on the type of pathology, our doctor will prescribe appropriate treatment methods for each patient, ranging from the use of medications, acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, thread embedding therapy, to more advanced techniques like hydro-acupuncture and laser acupuncture. Additionally, FV strength in multiple specialties greatly supports the Traditional Medicine Department by facilitating combined treatments with other specialties and providing more accurate diagnoses through FV advanced medical imaging technologies.

In recent years, thread embedding therapy has not only been effective in treating musculoskeletal pain but also supports the reduction of abdominal and visceral fat, helping patients improve both health and aesthetic. Traditional medicine methods provide long-lasting effects with few complications and can now be applied to treat various types of pathologies.

Modern technology and advanced methods elevate traditional medicine

At FV Hospital, traditional medicine doctors are making great efforts to integrate cutting-edge modern medical technology into new treatment protocols. Additionally, the use of diagnostic imaging equipment, standardised recovery procedures, and a care environment that meets international JCI standards ensures effective, safe, and comfortable treatment experiences for patients.

Alongside prominent methods that have demonstrated positive treatment outcomes for patients in the Traditional Medicine Department, such as; Acupuncture, Electro-acupuncture, Thread embedding acupuncture therapy, Thread embedding acupuncture for facial wrinkles and laxity. FV has recently introduced two new treatment methods: Acupoint injection therapy & Laser acupuncture (both methods are recognised by the WHO).

Acupoint injection therapy is a method that merges traditional acupuncture with the pharmacological effects of Western medicine. By injecting medication directly into acupuncture points based on meridian theories, this technique leverages the benefits of conventional acupuncture while enhancing the comprehensive effects of the medication. This approach not only provides quick and lasting therapeutic effects but also delivers noticeable treatment efficiency. Hydro-acupuncture is widely used to treat peripheral nerve injuries such as facial nerve paralysis, post-herpetic neuralgia, intercostal neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia, as well as central nervous system disorders like post-stroke paralysis, and acute and chronic pain conditions such as sciatica and shoulder-neck syndrome.

Laser acupuncture is recognised as a “needle-free acupuncture” method, offering a very modern and highly effective treatment experience. This technique uses low-level laser therapy (LLLT) instead of physical acupuncture needles to stimulate acupuncture points under the skin. With appropriate power and dosage, these “laser needles” do not generate heat, cause pain, or produce side effects. The special mechanism of laser acupuncture involves laser energy acting on living cells, enhancing metabolic processes, improving blood circulation, reducing inflammation, relieving pain, and promoting the rapid recovery of damaged cells.
