The release technique of the long round-sharp needle was used at the lesions of meridian tendon region, Yāoyícì (Beside Yaoyi) and the transverse process of the third lumbar vertebra in 34 patients with SCN entrapment syndrome. The treatment was given once a week, 4 treatments made one course. After one course treatment, the therapeutic effect was observed. The results of pain rating index (PRI), the visual analogy scores (VAS) and the present pain intensity (PPI) were compared before and after treatment.ResultsOf 34 patients, 28 cases (82%) were cured, 6 cases (18%) effective and 0 case (0%) failed. The total effective rate was 100%. The scores of PRI, VAS and PPI were (10.78 ± 1.98), (5.98 ± 1.19) and (3.91 ± 1.68) successively in 34 cases before treatment and they were (1.98 ± 1.79), (0.89 ± 1.12) and (0.82 ± 0.79) after treatment.

The objective of this study is to explore the role of acupuncture, in terms of efficacy on main disease severity measures and pain features, in patients with nonresponsive disease, defining nonresponsive FMS characterized by a revised Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ-R) ≥39 and a Patient Health Questionnaire 15-item (PHQ15) ≥5 despite optimal drug therapy. Patients were treated with weekly sessions, for a total of eight acupuncture sessions. At the baseline and at the end of the treatment cycle, a comprehensive clinical evaluation was carried out to evaluate improvements in terms of disease severity and impact ...

Conclusions: We showed an evidence that a full connection model within the brain network of brachial plexus pain and electroacupuncture intervention reduces effective connectivity from h and AMY to S1. Our study for the first time explored the relationship of involved brain regions with dynamic causal modeling. It provided novel evidence for the feature of the organization of the cortical-limbic network and the alteration caused by acupuncture. PMID: 32148473 [PubMed - in process]
