Traditional Chinese medicine treatment selection for straightened cervical curvature and therapeutic observation

Clinical Study



To observe the clinical efficacy of different therapies in treating straightened cervical curvature.


A hundred patients with straightened cervical curvature were randomized into 5 groups to receive corresponding treatment. The clinical efficacies and the changes of cervical curvature in the five groups were compared.


Different therapies all produced certain effectiveness in treating cervical spondylosis patients. The total effective rates in the acupuncture group and tuina group were both 100%, and the rates in the traction group, oral medication group and Chinese medicinal application group were all lower than the rates in the acupuncture group and tuina group (P<0.05). It was shown that the more significant the change of cervical curvature, the more significant the clinical efficacy.


Correcting the straightened cervical curvature is a way to swiftly release pain brought by cervical spondylosis; the optimization of different therapies ensures the achievement of long-term effectiveness; acupuncture and tuina are both effective in restoring the cervical curvature.

将100例颈椎病颈椎曲度变直患者, 随机分成5组进行治疗, 比较治疗前后5组患者临床疗效及患者颈椎曲度的变化。


不同疗法对颈椎病患者均有一定的疗效, 针刺组和推拿组总有效率均为100%, 牵引组、药物口服组和药物外敷组总有效率均低于针刺组和推拿组(均P<0.05)。对颈椎曲度改变显著者, 临床效果较显著。


纠正颈椎病患者的曲度变直, 是快速缓解颈椎病疼痛症状的临床思路, 不同疗法优化方案的选择是获得远期疗效的保证, 针刺和推拿对纠正颈椎病曲度变直有确切的临床效果。
