Clinical observations on 278 cases of cervical spondylopathy treated with electroacupuncture and massotherapy.
Futian Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Shenzhen.
From Dec. 1990 to Dec. 1993, 278 cases of cervical spondylopathy were treated with electroacupuncture and massotherapy. The cure rate was 82.7%; but in the control group, it was only 61%, indicating that electroacupuncture may enhance the cure rate (P < 0.05). Of the 278 cases treated by three to five sessions, the pain and numbness disappeared in about 96% of the patients.
