Improved Case of Chronic Polyarterial Myositis of Lower Extremities
60 year old male presented to clinic with 2 year history of chronic polyaterial myositis involving both lower extremities. Patient had undergone extensive investigation and had seen multiple specialists regarding this problem. He experienced muscle wasting of calf muscles and required use of the thigh muscle to lift his feet. The feet were cool, and although some diminished sensation, they were also easily irritated.

Patient received massage and physical therapy to maintain use of the lower limbs, but was looking for additional solutions. Patient received acupuncture to the affected area weekly and was prescribed an herbal medicine to improve blood flow to the affected area.

Patient noted increased sensation in the legs and feet after the first 2 treatments. Prior to beginning treatment, patient noted that he tripped and fell 1-2 times a month. Since on this treatment protocol, patient experienced falls rarely. His fall rate decreased by 50-75%. After 6 months of treatment, patient continued on the herbal medicine alone, taking it daily and maintaining improved use of the lower extremities.
