ABSTRACT

The objective of this study is to report the effect of oriental medical interventions on common peroneal neuropathy by observing two clinical case studies and to have oriental medical doctors realize the importance of treating oriental rehabilitative complex therapy after nerve injuries. Two patients, diagnosed as common peroneal neuropathy after traffic accidents, were hospitalized and treated by oriental medical interventions; acupuncture, moxa, cup therapy, herbal medicine, pharmacopuncture and etc. Numeric rating scales were adopted as a method of measuring the treatment results of hypoesthesia. The range of motion of the ankle joint, manual muscle test and the circumference of the lower extremity were employed as methods of measuring the resulting motor recovery after treatment. The hypoesthesia, myoatrophy and muscle strength of the patients were improved and the range of motion of the ankle joint was extended. Oriental rehabilitative complex therapy can be effectively used for common peroneal neuropathy. Further studies are needed to set up a rehabilitation protocol with oriental medical interventions on this disease.
