Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To observe the clinical therapeutic effects of electro-acupuncture in the treatment of cervical spondylopathy of the vertebroarterial type.

METHODS:

RESULTS:

The markedly effective rate of the treatment group was 75% and that of the control group was 61.54% (P<0.05).

CONCLUSION:

Electro-acupuncture has a better therapeutic effect than the simple acupuncture in the treatment of cervical spondylopathy of the vertebroarterial type.
