Main points were Ciliao BL-32, Baihuanshu BL-30 and Prostate Gland point located 1-2 cm anterior to the anus and needled laterally towards both sides to a depth of 5 cm. Additional points were selected according to differentiation as follows. i. Qi stagnation and blood stasis: Zhongliao BL-33, Xialiao BL-34 and Sanyinjiao SP-
6. ii. Damp-Heat type: Zhongji REN-3, Yinlingquan SP-9 and Shuidao ST-28. iii. Kidney qi xu type: Shenshu BL-23 and Qihai REN-6. iv. Kidney yang xu type Mingmen DU-4, Yaoyangguan DU-3 and Guanyuan REN-4. v. For severe lumbar pain: Shenshu BL-23 and Dachangshu BL-
25. vi. For severe anal and perineal pain: Chengshan BL-57. The laser was administered by a new model He-Ne instrument using a specially designed photofiber needle inserted into the points with laser light then introduced. There was significant difference in the results from the two groups. In the laser group, 45% were cured (against 24%), 38% markedly effective (against 28%), 15% improved (against 44%) and 3% ineffective (against 4%). The laser group also showed a recurrence rate after two years of 10% as against 25% for the needling group.
