Abstract


Objectives : The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of liver-tonification acupuncture (LTA) on periodic muscle cramps (MC).

Methods : We retrospectively reviewed medical records of 28 patients treated for periodic MC with LTA in a Korean medicine clinic. Patients were treated with (A) LTA alone, (B) LTA and treatments for myofascial meridian, or (C) LTA and treatments for other diseases. We mainly investigated effectiveness of treatments, the number of treatments, the number of relapses, and time to relapse.

Results : After treatments, periodic MC disappeared in all patients except two in group C. The number of treatments in group C was significantly greater than that of group A (p<0.05). Periodic MC recurred in one patient in each of groups A and C, but symptoms disappeared after re-treatments. Periodic MC did not recur for a median of 7.0, 8.5, and 5.0 weeks in groups A, B, and C, respectively.

Conclusions : We found some therapeutic effects of LTA treatments for periodic MC in middle-aged and elderly patients.
