Example text

Skeletal muscles in all other parts of the body are controlled by the spinal nerves. Nerves to the skeletal muscles originate from motor neurons in either the brain or the spinal cord. The signals to activate or move the muscles originate from these motor neurons to reach to the muscles. Therefore, the nerves are known as efferent fibers. The signals transmitted in the efferent fibers do not go from the muscles back to the neurons. This may explain why acupuncture does not have much effect on diseases involving efferent fibers, particularly efferent fibers to the skeletal muscles.

The myelin sheath outside a single nerve fiber is described as the endoneurium. It is obvious that neurons that become part of the nervous tissue are very well protected. This is the reason that, in the practice of acupuncture, needles properly inserted into the body are unlikely to produce substantial damage to nerve fibers. 5 A small nerve branch cut cross-sectionally to show nerve fibers of different diameters. © 2010 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC 16 Acupuncture: An Anatomical Approach the body.

In summary, we have stated that acupoints are the most important thing in acupuncture. From our observations, the identity of acupoints is in the nerve fibers. There are two kinds of fibers— efferent and afferent. Efferent fibers go to innervating skeletal muscles and structures that contain cardiac and smooth muscles. Efferent fibers that innervate cardiac and smooth muscles are known as autonomic nerves. Autonomic nerves are divided into sympathetic and parasympathetic, each of which consists of preganglionic and postganglionic segments.
