Abstract

Objective: To probe into quick and effective therapies for carpal tunnel syndrome. Methods: Totally 98 cases of carpal tunnel syndrome were randomly divided into a treatment group and a control group. The treatment group received warm-needling plus Tuina relaxing, while the control group was treated by hormone block therapy and drug medication. Results: The cure rate was 81.7% in the treatment group and 47.4% in the control group, with a significant difference between the two groups (P<0.01). Conclusion: Acupuncture plus Tuina manipulation is a simple therapy for carpal tunnel syndrome, but with remarkable therapeutic effects.
