ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: To observe the clinical effect of "metal hook fishing" (MHF)-like needling technique combined with Tuina manipulation in the treatment of scapulohumeral periarthritis. METHODS: A total of 72 patients with scapulohumeral periarthritis were randomly divided into MHF-like needling (MHF) and conventional needling groups (n=36 in each group). For patients of the GHF group, the doctor pressed the acupoint with the left index finger, held the disposable acupuncture needles to insert into the Jianqian, Jianyu (LI15), Jianliao (SJ5), Jianzheng (SJ9) and Ashi-point respectively with the right hand, waited for qi-arriving, twirled the needles forward about 3 to 6 times. When a tightened feeling was achieved beneath the needle tip, the doctor held the needle body to slightly shake it 3 to 6 times which mimicked a fish to swallow a hook, kept the situation for a while till relaxation, followed by retaining the needle for 30 min and then withdrew it slowly. Afterwards, the doctor performed Tuina manipulation at the upper limbs for 20 to 30 min. For patients of the conventional needling group, the same acupoints were needled and stimulated with the uniform reducing and reinforcing method for 1 min, followed by retaining the needles for 30 min. Then, massage was performed for 20 to 30 min in the same way as those in the MHF group. The treatment was conducted once daily, 6 times a week for 2 weeks. After the treatment, the visual analogue scale (VAS) was used to assess the pain degree, the range of motion (ROM) scale of the shoulder joint adopted to assess the function, and the activity of daily living (ADL) scale used to assess the patients' daily living ability. The therapeutic effects of the two groups were evaluated after the treatment. RESULTS: After the treatment, the VAS scores of the two groups were notably decreased (P<0.05), being significantly lower in the GHF group than in the conventional needling group (P<0.05). The ROM score and ADL score of the two groups were obviously increased (P<0.05), being significantly higher in the MHF group than in the conventional needling group (P<0.05). Of the 36 cases in the conventional needling and MHF groups, 7 and 17 were cured, 11 and 12 experienced remarkable improvement, 13 and 4 were improved, and 5 and 3 were ineffective, with the total effective rate being 86.1% (31/36) and 91.7% (33/36), respectively. The total effective rate of MHF group was evidently higher than that of the conventional needling group (P<0.05). CONCLUSION: Both MHF and conventional needling is effective in relieving scapulohumeral periarthritis, and the effect of MHF is ob-viously superior to that of conventional needling in relieving pain state and improving function of the affected shoulder joint.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: To observe the clinical therapeutic effect of Fuyang-pot warming combined with electroacupuncture (EA) in the treatment of scapulohumeral periarthritis (SPA). METHODS: A total of 90 cases of SPA patients were randomized into EA, Fuyang-pot warming and EA plus Fuyang-pot warming (combination) groups (n=30 per group). Fuyang-pot warming including pressing, mild moxibustion, scraping-pushing, cupping, tapping, etc. was applied to Fengchi (GB20), Dazhui (GV14), Jianjing (GB21), Jianyu (LI15), Zhongfu (LU1), Ashi-point, etc., and EA (2 Hz /100 Hz,1-1.5 mA) was appled to GB20, GV14, GB21, LI15, Binao (LI14), Tiaokou (ST38), Chengshan (BL57), Ashi-point, etc. The treatment was performed for 30 min every time, once every other day for 2 weeks. The visual analogue scale (VAS, 0-10 points) was used to assess the pain severity. The Constant-Murley shoulder assessment scale (100 points in total, including 15 points in pain severity and 20 points in daily living activities, 40 points in joint motion range, and 25 points in myodynamia) was used to assess the functional state of the shoulder. The rating scale of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES, 4 grades) was used to evaluate the ability of daily living activities. RESULTS: Following the treatment, intra-group comparison showed that the VAS score was significantly reduced in the three groups in comparison with their own pre-treatment (P0.05). CONCLUSION: Fuyang-pot warming combined with EA is effective in relieving pain, and enhancing the daily life quality in scapulohumeral periarthritis patients.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the MR features of different clinical staging of scapulohumeral periarthritis and provide relevant support data for the clinical staging of scapulohumeral periarthritis, so as to guide clinical treatment. Methods 30 patients with scapulohumeral periar-thritis received in the hospital from June 2015 to February 2017 were selected to form the observation group and 8 same-sex and same-aged volunteers without such disease were selected to form the control group. MR imaging was used to observe and measure the structure of shoulder joint of the people in the two groups and statistical analysis was performed to analyze the changes in the structure of the shoulder around dif-ferent clinical stages. Results The thickness of joint capsule and coracohumeral ligament ( CHL) , the ratio of subcoracoid fat triangle re-placed were significantly greater in patients with scapulohumeral periarthritis than those in the control group, and the difference was statisti-cally significant (P<0. 05). Comparing the thickness of joint capsule in the third stage of the scapulohumeral periarthritis group compare with those in the first and second stages, the difference was statistically significant (P<0. 05). There was no statistically significant differ-ence (P>0. 05) in the thickness of the coracohumeral ligament and the ratio of subcoracoid fat triangle replaced in the scapulohumeral peri-arthritis group between the 1st, 2nd and 3rd stages. Conclusion Patients with different stages have different structures around the shoulder joints. The thickness of joint capsule can be used as an important reference for diagnosing scapulohumeral periarthritis and can guide the clin-ical staging. The thickness of coracohumeral ligament and the ratio of subcoracoid fat triangle replaced can be used as a basis for diagnosing scapulohumeral periarthritis, but it cannot be used as a guideline for clinical staging.

ABSTRACT

Objective To observe the curative effect of warm needling therapy combined with kidney-supplementing and blood-activating Chinese herbal medicine on patients with scapulohumeral periarthritis and its effects on immunoglobulin IgA, IgG and IgM;To explore the mechanism. Methods Ninety patients with scapulohumeral periarthritis were randomly divided into needle with medicine group, needle group and medicine group, 30 cases in each group. Patients in the needle with medicine group were treated with needle warming therapy combined with kidney-supplementing and blood-activating Chinese herbal medicine, patients in the needle group were treated with needle warming therapy, patients in the medicine group were treated with kidney-supplementing and blood-activating Chinese herbal medicine, 30 days for medicine and every other day for acupuncture. Five time acupuncture was one course of treatment, and patients were treated for 3 courses. Shoulder pain index was evaluated, and the levels of IgA, IgG and IgM was determined before and after 3 courses treatment. The total curative effect of the three groups were compared. Results The total effective rates for needle and medicine group, needle group and medicine group were 93.33% (28/30), 73.33% (22/30), 66.67% (20/30), respectively, with statistical significance between needle and medicine group and the other two groups (P0.05). There was statistical significance between the shoulder indexes before and after treatment of the three groups (P<0.05). Before treatment, the levels of IgA, IgG and IgM of all three groups increased significantly compared with the normal reference values (P<0.05). After treatment, the levels of IgA, IgG and IgM were reduced significantly in three groups after treatment (P<0.05), the levels of IgA, IgG and IgM in the needle and medicine group were significantly lower than those in the other two groups (P<0.05). Conclusion The curative effect of needle warming therapy combined with kidney-supplementing and blood-activating Chinese herbal medicine was better than alone needle warming therapy or kidney-supplementing and blood-activating Chinese herbal medicine. This combined therapy could significantly improve the symptoms of patients, reduce the levels of IgA, IgG and IgM, regulate the body immune function, which is probably one of the mechanisms in the treatment of scapulohumeral periarthritis.
