Critical Review



To review literature from 1954 to 2007 and explore the regularity of point selection and methods for acupuncture-moxibustion treatment of cerebral palsy.


A comprehensive analysis was made by a method of metrological analysis according to the data from «China Modern Acupuncture-moxibustion Information Databank».


Points Zusanli (ST 36), Quchi (LI 11) and Hegu (LI 4) were most frequently used. Head points Baihui (GV 20) and Sishencong (Ex-HN 1) were also frequently used. Acupuncture, scalp acupuncture and acupuncture point injection were the major treatments.


Acupuncture intervention can improve the therapeutic effect on cerebral palsy. It is suggested that Baihui (GV 20), Sishencong (Ex-HN 1), Zusanli (ST 36), Quchi (LI 11) and Hegu (LI 4) be selected as a basic prescription for acupuncture-moxibustion treatment of cerebral palsy.
