The Efficacy of Needle-pricking Therapy and Rotating-pulling Manipulation on Vertebral Artery Cervical Spondylosis

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.100
Synopsis: 
This randomized controlled study compared the effects of needle-pricking therapy and rotating-pulling manipulation on blood velocity, angiokinesis, and blood viscosity in patients with vertebral artery cervical spondylosis. The authors conclude that needle-pricking therapy in combination with rotating-pulling manipulation may be more effective in adjustment of the spine position and balance, local tissue, and system than rotating-pulling manipulation alone.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To compare, through randomized controlled trials of large samples of patients, the effects and mechanisms of needle-pricking therapy and rotating-pulling manipulation on blood velocity, angiokinesis, and blood viscosity in patients with vertebral artery cervical spondylosis.
