[Reflexotherapy of vibration-induced disease]
The authors have developed an acupuncture technique which ensures a good effect in moderate forms of vibration disease associated with muscular dystrophy and involvement of the structures of the bone and muscle apparatus. The technique is based on a combined impact on auricular acupuncture points (with needles and microneedles) and on the corporeal points (with needles, drug injections, and irritation of the underlying periosteal acupuncture point). The efficacy of the proposed method in patients with vibration disease is 1.8 times higher as against the conventional combined therapy.
