Clinical Study of Acupotomy Trinity Lysis on Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy with Liver and Kidney Deficiency Syndrome

Abstract

Objective: To compare the therapeutic effects of acupotomy trinity lysis and traditional acupotomy on cervical spondylotic myelopathy. Methods: A total of 205 patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy of liver and kidney deficiency syndrome were randomly divided into the experimental group (105 cases) and the control group (100 cases). The experimental group was relaxed with acupotomy in three positions: Heaven (tian), Human (ren) and Earth (di). Traditional acupotomy was used to relax Ashi acupoints of the affected vertebra in the control group. One treatment was conducted in one week, and the duration of one course of treatment was three weeks. The VAS, JOA score and NDI index were observed after treatment.  Results: Before and after treatment, the total treatment efficiency of the treatment group was 95.23%, and that of the control group was 80.00%, there was significant difference between the two groups, P<0.05; Before operation, there was no significant difference in JOA score, NDI index score, and VAS score between the treatment group and the control group (P>0.05); there was no significant difference after 1 week (P>0.05), but there were significant differences between the two groups 2 weeks and 3 weeks after operation (P<0.05). Conclusion: Acupotomy trinity lysis is a safe, effective and economical treatment for cervical spondylotic myelopathy.
