采用回顾性调查研究方法。 70 例被诊断为腰痛的患者按顺序性抽样方法分为两组。 观察组44 例采用针刺治疗加锻炼的方法, 对照组26 例仅针刺治疗。 根据针刺治疗后1 年内的复发率比较两组间的差异。
背部锻炼是一个危险因素, 它和腰痛的频繁发作有关。 而针刺治疗是一种对亚急性非特异性腰痛的有效治疗方案。
To investigate the interrelationship between back exercise and acupuncture curative effect, and unveil the reason that recovery usually delays in a number of low back pain sufferers.
The study is designed as a retrospect investigation. Seventy patients who were newly diagnosed with low back pain were sequentially selected and divided into two groups, 44 cases in the observation group treated with acupuncture plus exercise, and 26 cases in the control group only treated with acupuncture. The recurrence rates in the one-year follow-up after the acupuncture service were compared between the two groups.
Result and Conclusion
Back exercise is a risk factor associated with frequent back pain recurrence. In contrast, acupuncture is an effective intervention method for the treatment and prevention of non-specific low back pain.
