Aim: To study cervical spondylosis of the nerve root treated using a Longs' bone reduction maneuver combined with silver needle acupuncture.
Methods: 112 patients with cervical spondylosis of the nerve root were divided into treatment (group A) and control groups (group B). Patients in group A were treated with Longs' bone reduction maneuver combined with silver needle acupuncture therapy and patients in group B were treated with the Longs' bone reduction maneuver only.
Results: There was improvement in symptoms and signs. The cure and marked effectiveness rate of group A was 94.74% and 84.21%, respectively, and 74.55% and 47.27% in group B, respectively, 1 week and 6 month after treatment; The improvement was significantly greater in group A than group Bï¼ÂPa ï¹¤ 0.01 and Pb ï¹¤ 0.01).
