Clinical Study



To evaluate the therapeutic effects of Tuina and hyperbaric oxygen on prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disc.


The included 160 cases of prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disc were allocated into a treatment group and a control group. The 100 cases in the treatment group were treated with tuina manipulation and hyperbaric oxygen. The 60 cases in the control group were treated with tuina manipulation. The total effect and scores of symptoms and signs were compared before and after treatment.


The total effective rate in the treatment group was 100.0%, and 83.0% in the control group.


Tuina and hyperbaric oxygen had excellent effects on the prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disc, by improving the clinical symptoms and signs of ache and movement restriction of lower back and leg, and recovering the ability of work and daily life.
