Participants will get non-surgical periodontal therap with/without electro acupuncture. Researchers will compare EA and control groups to see if there is any relationship between acupuncture application clinical periodontal parameters,serum and saliva cytokine levels.
Acupuncture and laser acupuncture treatments have been proven to be effective and safe treatments for carpal tunnel syndrome(CTS). However, there is still a lack of direct comparative studies of acupuncture and laser acupuncture in the treatment of CTS. A 3-arm, randomized controlled study in acupuncture, laser acupuncture study and sham laser acupuncture therapy was designed for patient with carpal tunnel syndrome. The Glabal symptom score (GSS), Boston Carpal Tunnel Questionnaire (BCTQ), neurophysiological study, morphological examination under ultrasonography will be evaluated before and after treatment. Comparison of therapeutic efficacy of acupuncture, laser acupuncture and sham laser acupuncture in the treatment of CTS will be explored.
Objective: obesity is an important risk factor of chronic diseases, which not only threatens people's health, but also an important topic of public health. The purpose of this study is to define obesity according to the norms of the World Health Organization, and to explore whether combined weight loss methods have an impact on weight loss. Methods: In this study, Combined treatment of abdominal acupoint catgut embedding was combined with auricular pellet acupressure, The wire used for catgut embedding in the experiment was polydioxanone (PDO) 。 This experiment was divided into two groups: the experimental group A and the control group B 。 The reference measurement basis is the data obtained by "Inbody" instrument, including height and weight, body mass index (BMI), basic metallic rate (BMR), Body Fat Percentage BFP) , waist hip ratio and the data of total cholesterol (TC) and triglycerides (TG) obtained from biochemical blood examination, through the comparison before and after the test, we can judge whether the method of this test can achieve a certain degree of curative effect on weight loss.
Cancer patients experience cancer pain as much as 66%. Cancer pain is pain that occurs in patients with neoplastic/malignancy and the source of the pain can come from malignant processes, treatments such as radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and surgery as well as other causes that are not related to malignancy processes. Unresolved pain can reduce the quality and life expectancy of cancer pain patients. The prevalence of cancer itself in Indonesia, the case of cervical cancer itself ranks second after breast cancer. In recent decades, acupuncture analgesics have been widely used to relieve cancer pain, and can also reduce the dose and side effects of analgesics. However, substantially the use of acupuncture in cancer pain is still very rare.
The goal of this pilot trial is to learn about using acupuncture for ketamine experience integration in adults aged 21-65 who are medically cleared for a ketamine prescription. The aim is to inform future controlled trials investigating efficacy by evaluating the success of: - recruitment - retention - assessment procedures - implementation of group acupuncture interventions performed just after a ketamine experience Participants will be given acupuncture in a group setting after a small-group ketamine experience. The following day, participants will be asked to complete a few brief surveys about their experience.
Knee pain is one of common pain-causing diseases and it affects patients' mobility which in turn seriously affects the quality of patients' life. The most common cause of knee pain results from the inflammation occurred at the patello-femoral joint of the anterior knee. It is now commonly recognized as Patello-femoral pain syndrome (PFPS). It is categorized as anterior knee pain. The exact pathogenesis of PFPS is still not clear but both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Western Medicine (WM) have many treatment methods. Hence, it is important and meaningful to investigate the diagnosis and treatment in detail. Through reviewing the literature about PFPS, the investigators would like to achieve the following objectives in the study design. Under the principle of evidence-based medicine, the investigators compare the clinical effectiveness of TCM acupuncture and Tui-na manipulations treatment with the physiotherapy on the PFPS management. The study is to determine whether which are effective in improving knee function and lessening the pain in PFPS patients.
The goal of this clinical trial is to evaluate the immediate analgesic effect and patients' evaluation of the treatment of cheek acupuncture in patients with acute gouty arthritis. The main question it aims to answer are: Does cheek acupuncture has immediate pain relief effects on patients with acute gouty arthritis. Participants will received cheek acupuncture for 30 mins. If there is a comparison group: Researchers will compare etoricoxib group to see if cheek acupuncture is superior to etoricoxib for improvement of acute pain in subjects with acute gouty arthritis.
Recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA) is a common pregnancy complication in women of reproductive age and the cause of RSA remains largely unclear. Acupuncture is widely used in clinical practice to treat infertility and abortion. The role of acupuncture in the treatment of infertility is still unclear. The investigators conducted a randomized, prospective, controlled clinical trial to investigate its potential impact on pregnancy outcome. Herein, the investigators not only evaluated the changes in patients' psychological stress before and after treatment but also followed up on pregnancy outcomes. In addition, changes in uterine artery blood flow were observed by ultrasound. Changes in coagulation-related indicators were also detected.
The goal of this non-invasive interventional study is to explore the university students' experience of living with primary dysmenorrhea and evaluate the effect of acupuncture at the Sanyinjiao point on their physiological discomfort. The main questions it aims to answer are: - Is there any difference in pain before and after the intervention of the Sanyinjiao point acupressure for dysmenorrhea among female college students? - Is there any difference in the average number of Menstrual Distress Questionnaire scale before and after Sanyinjiao acupressure in female college students with dysmenorrhea? Participants will be acupressure at Sanyinjiao point triple times during the study.
This study intends to use a randomized controlled clinical study to clarify the clinical efficacy of cheek acupuncture therapy in patients with moderate depressive disorder. And also to find the antidepressant mechanism of cheek acupuncture therapy on moderate depressive disorder by using resting state functional magnetic resonance imaging. The specific method is to randomly assign 126 patients with moderate depressive disorder to cheek acupuncture group, sham cheek acupuncture group and drug group, evaluate the treatment effect with HAMD-17, PSQI and HAMA, observe the improvement of cheek acupuncture on depression, anxiety and sleep quality of patients with moderate depressive disorder, and observe the changes of functional links in various brain regions of patients in each group before and after treatment through resting state functional magnetic resonance imaging technology.
