Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To observe the therapeutic effect of painless festering moxibustion on knee osteoarthritis and to probe into a new therapy.

METHODS

Thirty-four cases of knee osteoarthritis were treated with painless festering moxibustion at the best moxibustion part close to the knee joint. The internationally acknowledged knee joint function rating scale (percentage method) including such indexes as pain, walking, joint flexion mobility, instability, engorgement, stair activity and twist-locking before and after treatment was used for assessment of the therapeutic effect.

RESULTS

Ten cases were cured, 14 cases were markedly effective, 9 cases were effective and 1 cases was ineffective, with a total effective rate of 97.060%.

CONCLUSION

Painless festering moxibustion has an obvious therapeutic effect on knee osteoarthritis.
