Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate the efficacy of the proprioceptive sensibility reflexotherapy by tendon acupuncture needling at trigger points for patients with proprioceptive disorder of cervical vertigo.

Patients in the treatment group received the proprioceptive sensibility reflexotherapy with tendon acupuncture at trigger points in the neck.

The cervical vertigo symptom and function, the joint position error (JPE) and stability index (ST) before and after treatment were observed in the two groups and the effects were evaluated.

RESULTS:

The cervical vertigo symptom and function were improved, JPE and ST decreased after treatment in the two groups (all P<0.05), with better results in the treatment group (all P<0.05).
