Cerebral concussion is a kind of transient functional disturbance seen in brain, due to the head injury caused by the hit of violence. If there remains a trail of symptoms such as headache, dizziness, insomnia, degraded memory, impaired concentration, etc. positive check cannot be seen during the neurologic check, thus we regard it as postconcussion syndrome. This disease is a category of diseases such as "headache", "vertigo" and so on in TCM. According to the theory of TCM, the pathogenesis is blood stasis in the encephalic collateral, which is an aggravation of qi-stagnancy and blood stasis caused by trauma. Promoting qi to activate blood and dredge the meridians to stop pain are the two main acupuncture and moxibustion therapies.
