The therapeutic effects of electrical acupuncture and auricular-plaster in 32 cases of chronic fatigue syndrome.
J Tradit Chin Med. 2006 Sep; 26(3):163-4.JT

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To observe the therapeutic effects of electrical acupuncture and auricular-plaster therapy for chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

METHOD

64 CFS patients were randomly divided into two groups. 32 cases in the treatment group were treated by the electrical acupuncture and auricular-plaster therapy, and 32 cases in the control group with oral hydrocortisone.

RESULTS

The total effective rates were respectively 93.75% in the treatment group and 75.00% in the control group, with a statistically significant difference between the two groups (P < 0.05).

CONCLUSION

Electrical acupuncture and auricular-plaster therapy may show a better anti-fatigue effect than that of routine Western drugs.
