[Comparative observation of corresponding channel point selection for treatment of prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disc].

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To compare clinical therapeutic effects of acupuncture along channel and routine acupuncture on prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disc.

METHODS

One hundred and sixty-five cases were randomly divided into an observation group (n=85) and a control group (n=80). The observation group were treated with acupuncture at corresponding channel points according to types of the Gallbladder Channel and the Bladder Channel, and the control group were treated with acupuncture at routinely selected acupoints. Their therapeutic effects after treatment of 4 courses and their recurrence rates half a year later were observed.

RESULTS

The cured and markedly effective rate of 88.2% and the recurrence rate of 24.0% in the observation group were significantly better than 72.5% and 41.4% in the control group, with significant differences between the two groups (both P<0.05).

CONCLUSION

Corresponding channel point selection for treatment of prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disc has significant short-term and long-term therapeutic effects.
