Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To observe clinical therapeutic effect of superficial needling at distal and proximal acupoints on primary dysmenorrhea (PD).

METHODS:

One hundred and twenty cases of PD were randomly divided into a treatment group (n =60) and a control group (n = 60). The treatment group were treated with superficial needling at Sanyinjiao (SP 6) and the control group with oral administration of indometacin entric-coater tablets.

RESULTS:

Of the 120 cases, 116 cases completed the investigation. The total effective rate was 93. 3% in the treatment group and 75. 0% in the control group. The comprehensive therapeutic effect and the cured rate in the treatment group were significantly better than that in the control group (P<0. 001), with a more rapid effect and lasting a longer time than the control group.

CONCLUSION:

Clinical therapeutic effect of superficial needling at Sanyinjiao (SP 6) on primary dysmenorrhea is better than that of oral administration of indometacin entric-coater tablets.
