ABSTRACT

ObjectivesThe purpose of this study is to report the effect of Megadose Pharmaco-acupuncture combined with conservative Korean medicine treatment on Herniated InterVertebral Disc (HIVD) of lumbar spine patient diagnosed by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).MethodsThis study includes 41 patients whose Lumbar Disc Herniations were by MRIbetween 1st Aprill 2011 and 31th March 2016. All of the patients were treated with Megadose Pharmacoacupuncture combined with Korean medicine treatment. The MRI ex-amination was performed on two or more occasions (minimally, pre-treatment and post-treat-ment). The volume of each herniated disc was measured. For each patient, age, sex, disc mi-gration, morphology, initial LDH size, herniated disc resorption rate were analysed.ResultsThe mean volumes of herniated discs at pre-treatment and post-treatment were 1321.62±467.53 mm3 and 648.72±313.38 mm3. The volumes of all patients were decreased. The resorption means of each class of the extent of LDH were significantly dif-ferent (p=0.041). On the other hand, no difference was found in sex, age, level, herniated disc grade.ConclusionsThe MRI results suggest that Megadose Pharmacoacupuncture combined with Korean medicine treatment can help treat lumbar herniated disc.
