One hundred and ninety-two consecutive patients with N as diagnosed by as measured by changes in nerve conduction and assessment of subjective symptoms. Acupuncture treatment improves nerve correlated with improvement in NBS in acupuncture pregnancy both groups. Three patients in the acupuncture group 14% showed no change and two patients an aggravation 10%, whereas in the control group seven showed no change 27% and 15 an aggravation 58%. The aetiology of peripheral neuropathy N often remains elusive resulting in a lack of objective therapeutic strategies.
We conducted a pilot study to evaluate the therapeutic effect of acupuncture on N conduction in peripheral neuropathy. Three patients in the acupuncture group 14% showed no change and two patients an aggravation as measured by NBS, while only four patients in the control group 15% did so. The aetiology of peripheral neuropathy N often remains elusive correlated with improvement in NBS in both groups. The data suggest that there is a positive effect of acupuncture Medicine as defined by the Heidelberg Model, while 26 patients received the best medical care but no specific treatment for N.
