[Application of acureflexotherapy to the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis].

[Article in Russian]


The objective of this study was to evaluate efficiency of acureflexotherapy for the prevention of exacerbations of seasonal allergic rhinitis. Up to seven needles were used per session depending on the acupuncture point. A set of auricular and remote (corporal) points were chosen on either side of the patient's body. Efficiency of the treatment was evaluated from changes in the clinical picture of the disease, results of rhinoscopy and laboratory analyses during the period of plant pollination. A total of 24 patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis were given this treatment of whom 18 (75%) reported marked improvement of health conditions. It manifested itself as the disappearance of clinical symptoms of the disease and a substantial decrease in the number and severity of pathological changes in nasal mucosa revealed by rhinoscopy.
