Abstract

Objective

To observe the clinical effects of acupuncture treatment for gastroptosis.

Methods

Forty-seven cases with gastroptosis were randomly divided into two groups. 25 cases in the treatment group were treated by electroacupuncture plus ginger-partitioned moxibustion, and 22 cases in the control group were treated by single electroacupuncture. The therapeutic effects were observed after three courses of the treatments.

Results

The curative rate was 56.0% and total effective rate was 92.0% in the treatment group, and the curative rate was 36.4% and total effective rate was 90.9% in the control group, with statistical significance in comparison of the curative rates between the two groups (P<0.05).

Conclusion

Electroacupuncture plus ginger-partitioned moxibustion is better than single electroacupuncture treatment for gastroptosis.
