ABSTRACT

Objectives :In order to observe clinical effects of ultrasonic lipolysis treatment compared to electroacupuncture, we analyzed correlation among reduction of weight, BFM(body fat mass), PBF(percent body fat), WHR(waist-hip ratio), BMI(body mass index) and WC(waist circumference). Methods :Among the patients who admitted to Semyung oriental medicine hospital, Chungju university from August, 2011 to May, 2012 for obesity treatment, 15 subjects who were practiced with ultrasonic lipolysis treatment and 13 subjects who were practiced with electroacupuncture were chosen. Results :1. The group under the practice of ultrasonic lipolysis treatment showed significant decrease in weight, WC, BFM, PBF, WHR and BMI. 2. The group under the practice of electroacupuncture showed significant decrease in weight, WC, BFM and BMI. 3. Compared to the group under the practice of electroacupuncure, the group under the practice of ultrasonic lipolysis treatment showed less change in reduction of Weight, WC, BMI but more change in reduction of BFM. The changes were not statistically significant though. Conclusions :This study showed the efficacy of the sole practice of ultrasonic lipolysis treatment and electroacupuncture on obesity. The practice of ultrasonic lipolysis treatment showed significant decrease in weight, WC, BFM, PBF, WHR and BMI. The practice of electroacupuncture showed significant decrease in weight, WC, BFM and BMI.
