This study observed the local tissue homogenates in rabbits with third lumbar vertebral transverse foramen syndrome and explored the mechanism of acupotomylysis in local tissue revascularization. Thirty Japanese white rabbits were randomly divided into the following 5 groups of 6 rabbits each: normal, model, acupotomy, electroacupuncture (EA), and acupotomy-EA groups. All except the normal group were comprised of animal models of third lumbar vertebral transverse foramen syndrome prepared by embedding sponge in the left third lumbar transverse process...

Background. Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is widely applied in the clinical practice of neck pain owing to cervical radiculopathy (CR). While many systematic reviews exist in CAM to improve CR, research is distributed across population, intervention, comparison, and setting. Objective. This overview aims to summarize the characteristics and evaluate critically the evidence from systematic reviews. Methods. A comprehensive literature search was performed in the six databases without language restrictions on February 24, 2015...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the effect of acupotomy (needle-knife) therapy on local pathological changes and cartilage-mechanics related protein expression in rabbits with knee osteoarthritis (KOA) so as to study its mechanisms underlying improving KOA. METHODS: Forty New Zealand rabbits were randomly divided into normal control group, model group, acupotomy group, and electroacupuncture (EA) group (n = 10 in each group). The KOA model was established by immobilization of the left knee-joint (modified Videman method) for 6 weeks...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of acupotomy in patients with degenerative lumbar spine stenosis. METHODS: A total of 437 patients who had been diagnosed as having lumbar spine stenosis and who had been admitted to Daejeon Oriental hospital from June 1, 2008, to September 31, 2012, were included in this study. The patients underwent acupotomy once, twice or three times on the lumbar spine, according to their symptoms. Then, the patients were asked to complete the verbal numeric rating scale (VNRS) and the oswestry disability index (ODI) before and after acupotomy and underwent a global assessment...

Yi Zhang, Chang-Qing Guo
The manipulating methods among the traditional needling manipulation other than lifting-thrusting and twirling are analyzed, their manipulations and curative effect are explored in combination with acupotomy. It is believed that there's a certain kind of prizing manipulation, which plays an important part in elasatolysis, circulation of qi promotion and arrival of qi stimulation. The elastic and flexible characteristic of modern acupuncture needle has made it difficult to play the role of prizing puncture. On the contrary, the high stiffness and inflexible needle like acupotomy and leverage needle can effectively complete the prizing puncture...
