ABSTRACT

Objectives : Lumbar herniation of intervetebral disc occasionally induces fuctional scoliosis. If the patient show unilateral pelvic obliquity, treating related muscles' tenderness can reduce pain coming from lumbar herniation of intervertebral disc and also improve functional scoliosis, unilateral pelvic obliquity. Methods : We treated the Ah-Shi Points by acupuncture, moxibustion, and herbal treatment. Several physiological and radiological tests, Visual Analogue Scale(VAS) of low back and hip pain, Cobb's angle for measuring the state of scoliosis, apparent length gap of both legs for checking unilateral short leg, etc. were used for assessment. Results : After treatment, we confirmed these improvement:VAS from 10 to 1~3; Cobb's angle from 15° to 12°; apparent length gap of both legs from 1.5cm to 1.25cm. Conclusions : These results suggest treating muscles' tenderness that worsen the unilateral pelvic obliquity, is effective for reducing pain symptoms from lumbar herniation of intervertebral disc and also functional scoliosis.
