Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To observe the clinical effect of electroacupuncture under continuous traction in prone position for treatment of lumbar disc herniation, to search a better clinical treatment for lumbar disc herniation.

METHODS

The patients were randomly divided into group A (42 cases), group B (39 cases) and group C (38 cases). The acupuncture methods of three groups were the same, Jiaji (EX B 2), Weizhong (BL 40) and Chengshan (BL 57) etc. were selected, and the electroacupuncture was applied as a basic treatment. Continuous traction in prone position and electroacupuncture treatment were used at the same time in group A, group B was treated with supine position traction first and then electroacupuncture treatment, while group C was treated with electroacupuncture only, the therapeutic effects were observed and compared.

RESULTS

The effective rate of 95.2% in group A was superior to that of 79.5% in group B and 65.8% in group C (P < 0.05, P < 0.01).

CONCLUSION

Electroacupuncture under continuous traction in prone position is a better treatment for lumbar disc herniation.
