Brief Summary:
Compare the curative effects of electroacupuncture deep needling difference in efficacy of the conservative treatment for lumbar five point therapy and routine western medicine, to explore the efficacy and superiority, open a new way for the treatment of lumbar disc herniation.Through a comparative analysis of the data on the efficacy of different TCM Syndrome Types in the subgroup of patients with, to explore the effect of Electroacupuncture of deep needling and five lumbar acupoint therapy is most suitable for the TCM syndrome type.Through follow-up, patients in the two groups moment condition and the survival of the state was evaluated, explore the effect of electroacupuncture deep needling the long-term effects of five lumbar acupoint therapy for treatment of lumbar disc herniation and factors that may influence the recurrence of symptoms.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Protrusion of Lumbar Intervertebral Disc Other: Electro-acupuncture Other: Conventional treatment of Western Medicine

Detailed Description:
Beijing and North China area is lumbar protrusion of the intervertebral disc is the most prevalent area, much due to white-collar workers movement amount is small, the long-term bad posture, or do not move for a long time does not accept the ultraviolet radiation due to osteoporosis. The lumbar disc herniation in young people in a year of rapid growth trend, serious illness and severe low back pain even cannot move and accompanied by paralysis of the legs, hair is cool, weakness, intermittent claudication even muscle atrophy and neurological dysfunction, and so on. Some of them have already caused the degeneration of intervertebral disc or the phenomenon of aging. Recent studies show that only 10% - 20% of the lumbar disc herniation patients need surgical treatment, for does not have the surgery patients with, choice of a curative effect, quick effect and side effects of small, simple conservative treatment methods become many lumbar intervertebral disc herniation were urgent needs.Electroacupuncture and deeply needling five lumbar acupoint therapy is the person in charge of the project after more than 20 years of clinical experience put forward the innovation specific therapy is a novel method for the treatment and prognosis of lumbar protrusion of the intervertebral disc to carry out the innovative clinical research applications, both at home and abroad there is no precedent. The project team through a small range of clinical research and literature research have confirmed the efficacy of electro acupuncture treatment of lumbar disc herniation is reliable, but the long-term efficacy of acupuncture therapy has not been carried out. Therefore, combined with the cohort study of conventional medical practice without human intervention, the results of the study more in line with the actual advantages of the design prospective cohort study. Through long-term follow-up, with a large number of clinical evidence of electroacupuncture deep needling five lumbar acupoint therapy for treatment of lumbar disc herniation with conventional western medicine conservative treatment when compared to the differences in efficacy, treatment, recurrence rate, and to explore the long-term effect of lumbar disc herniation recurrence factors and this kind of therapy in the treatment of lumbar disc herniation.This project involved deep needling lumbar five points and long-term follow-up of the key contents and fit the lumbar disc herniation rate high, and recurrent episodes of the characteristics of the course of lingering, represents a concern in modern medical disease curative effect at the same time pay more attention to the development direction of the prognosis of the disease, with good prospects for clinical application. After 1 year, 175 patients visit and follow up the formation of the research results, will be able to EA deep needling lumbar five point therapy to provide high quality clinical evidence, and gradually formed this kind of special treatment as the core characteristics of traditional Chinese medicine treatment pattern, promote the hospital in clinical characteristics and advantages of the party to the development. And in order to attract patients with indications, the amplification of the unit's outpatient volume, to achieve indirect economic benefits. From the social point of view, this study explore drawn about the clinical results and the research process of the patients for rehabilitation guidance, will be of direct benefit to the patient's path choice, for long-term efficacy and prognosis of diseases and lay a good foundation, reduce disease recurrence to help patients to relieve pain, shorten the course of disease, saving the cost of medical treatment. At the same time, a large number of clinical cases of the subject group will be used to establish a database of patients with lumbar disc herniation, which is convenient for the retrospective study in the future. This study through the practice of training training a group with high data acquisition and doctor-patient communication skills and master the characteristics and effective treatment method for the researchers, will also become the support project subject to bear the backbone of the sustainable development.
