ABSTRACT

Objectives :The aim of this review was to investigate studies on fire needle and to propose for the better method of studies in the future. Methods :Studies related to fire needle were searched with electric database for this study, and 10 domestic and overseas databases were included. Results :19 clinical studies were analyzed in terms of condition, time of heating, number and frequency of treatment, number of heating, safety procedure or device and reports of adverse events. Also 3 review studies were summarized. The number of studies was increasing and the kind of diseases to treat with fire needle were various. Especially musculoskeletal diseases like ligament lesion and lumbago were noticeable. Heating-after-insertion method was recently proposed but the use of term was confusing. The report of adverse events or safety procedure was rare. Also there was an effort to develop more convenient and safer device. Conclusions :High quality clinical trial on fire needle is needed especially to compare 2 methods, heating-after-insertion and heating-before-insertion. And studies need to report safety procedures and adverse events to evaluate the safety of fire needle therapy.
