[Control study on analgesic effect of single-point electroacupuncture on prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disc].
Zhongguo Zhen Jiu 2006; 26(5):319-21ZZ

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To explore an effective method for electroacupuncture treatment of pain in waist and lower extremities due to prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disc.

METHODS

All 98 cases of such disease were randomly divided into a treatment group (n = 53) and a control group (n = 45). The treatment group were treated with local single-point electroacupuncture stimulation, and the control group with routine electroacupuncture stimulation for 8 sessions. The pain in waist and lower extremities in the two groups were continuously evaluated with short-form of McGill pain questionnaire (SF-MPQ).

RESULTS

After first treatment, SF-MPQ scores in the two groups were significantly different from those before treatment (P < 0.001), and there were significant differences between the two groups respectively (P < 0.001) at the each time points.

CONCLUSION

Local singly-point electroacupuncture has a better analgesic effect on pain in waist and lower extremities due to prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disc.
