We are the first and only one clinic to do Fu's Subcutaneous Needling in Ireland.


Fu's Subcutaneous Needle (FSN), invented by Dr. Zhonghua Fu in 1996, is an innovation for the treatment of myofascial pain and trigger points based on the research and clinical findings of Dr. D. Simons and Dr.Janet G. Travell.

Originating from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), FSN does not follow the rules and principles of TCM and the chosen insertion points do not coincide with traditional acupuncture points. The similarities are limited to the distal insertion of the needle to the affected area, the needle itself being a non-injection needle, and the fact that both needles are manipulated and act on soft connective tissue. FSN abstains from the muscle and deep fascia layers and is confined to only the subcutaneous layer where collagen fibers are most abundant. As the subcutaneous layer is poorly innervated, pain is less than other needling therapies.

FSN is also currently being used successfully to treat non-musculoskeletal conditions; however more research is to be carried out to conclude these findings.

 

 

Mechanism

FSN and traditional acupuncture may both share the same mechanism of action in terms of the measurable or physiological effects they relate on the body.

The effects that FSN emits on the body are by means of mechanotransduction as the swaying of the needle triggers a response on the connective tissue, specifically the collagen fibers by stimulating signal transduction and gene expression in fibroblasts of the subcutaneous tissue.

A drawing or magnetic effect on connective tissue has been observed upon needle manipulation as the contraction and shape changes of fibroblasts cause pulling of collagen fibers and secondary alignment of fibroblasts and collagen fibers. During manipulation of the needle, collagen fibers would wind and tighten around the needle shaft, and dispersing of nociceptive substances and PH balance has also been observed in skeletal muscles.

As collagen fibers are most abundant in the subcutaneous layer, this may explain why FSN exhibits a more immediate effect than traditional acupuncture in relieving muscle dysfunction as the FSN comes into contact with more connective tissue during needle manipulation.

Development

Zhonghua Fu runs a successful pain clinic in Nanjing, China affiliated with Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine. At the FSN clinic for pain medicine, FSN is used as the sole means to treat musculoskeletal disorders and some chronic benign visceral disorders.

Fu originally trained as a TCM doctor, completing his masters in acupuncture. While practicing and teaching traditional acupuncture in Guangzhou, he realized that several innovations were needed to improve and accelerate the acupuncture effect. Because some techniques for painful problems in the ancient HUANGDI INTERNAL CLASSIC were punctured obliquely surrounding some painful spots, Fu thought inserting horizonally is a good choice, and then FSN came into being after a number of trials.

After completing his Ph.D, Fu conducted research in his lab for 2 years on arthritic rats. During these trials, when the needle was inserted into the local point of sensitivity, there were no profound changes in VAS and Range of Movements. Notable changes in VAS and Range of Movements were observed however when the needle was inserted parallel to the skin surface.

The FSN needle

The FSN needle is a modified trocar needle similar to an I.V. Catheter and has been patented in China. There are 3 parts to the needle: soft tube, protecting sheath, and needle core. The needle core is 31 mm in length and 1 mm in diameter. Each needle is individually packaged and sterilized with ethylene oxide gas.

I attended Dr Wang almost four years ago with muscular shoulder pain. Again this spring with muscular and ligament pain in my lower leg.

After a course session of treatment in each area, l had no reoccurring pain. Ms Wang has a great skill set mentally in her range of treatments to resolve any muscular and some ligament pains.

I would highly recommend Dr Ji Wang.

Treatment Received: Acupuncture Treatment
Acupuncture and herbs.

Ji is very nice and professional. I have been suffering from IBS for over a year. I have got approx 6 acupuncture treatment and herbs, all for very reasonable price and along with FodMap diet it has been over 1 month and I feel finally very good that I never believed I would be again. Also, I think that the acupuncture helps me to significantly lower my level of anxiety.

"I admire them as a clinic"
3 50Reviewed 03 Aug 2017 Verified user.
Treatment Received: Dry Needling
I had an Acupuncture appointment at the WJ Acupuncture and Herbs clinic a while ago and while I admire them as a clinic for their service, their treatment was not at all very helpful for me. It did not do what I needed it to do.

The clinic itself was not at all hard to locate, the price was not too bad and their service was fairly good, it is just that their treatment did not really perform.

Fu's Subcutaneous Needling

Fu Subcutaneous Needling (FSN), originating from traditional Chinese acupuncture, is a therapeutic approach for localised diseases, especially for painful musculoskeletal disorders. This procedure is performed by inserting a special trocar needle into the subcutaneous layer around the afflicted (dysfunctional muscles) spot to achieve the desired effect. In some cases, FSN can provide immediate and significant relief of the pain in trigger points (TrPs) more effectively than anaesthesia.
