20 year-old male experiences numbness and tingling in the right hand after several hours of work in front of a computer – the computer is positioned at in incline angle rising up and back out from his desk. Phalen’s test was negative, but palpation of the neck was painful. I asked the patient to stand up naturally and observed his posture: slumped shoulders with palms facing his anterior thighs, and his neck is slanted anteriorly.

Immediately after inserting the needles, I palpated his neck with the same pressure and it was not as painful

Two treatments per week for 3 weeks
Postural re-education
On his second visit, he proclaimed he no longer had hand numbness and was maintaining a proper posture. He enjoyed the feeling of relaxation from acupuncture and continues to come for treatment even though he does not have any complaints.
