To observe the clinical effect of pinching spine plus acupoint sticking therapy for infantile cerebral palsy (ICP) with spleen deficiency pattern.


Seventy children of ICP with spleen deficiency pattern were randomly divided into a treatment group and a control group. Those in the treatment group were given the comprehensive rehabilitation therapy plus pinching spine and acupoint sticking therapy. Those in the control group were just given the comprehensive rehabilitation therapy. The treatment was given once every day, 20-day as one course, and totally for three courses.


The total effective rate of the clinical symptoms was 77.1% in the treatment group and 39.9% in the control groups. The total effective rate of rehabilitation effects was 74.3% in the treatment group and 48.6% in the control group. The effective rate was obviously better in the treatment group than that in the control group, with statistical differences (P<0.05).


Pinching spine plus acupoint sticking therapy is remarkable in the therapeutic effects for ICP with spleen deficiency pattern, and needs to be popularized clinically.
