32 Cases of Femoral Adductors Syndrome Treated by Electroacupuncture and Moxibustion

Yang Jun

Strain of the femoral adductors is a common sporting injury, falling into the category of bi syndrome in TCM. A treatment group of 32 cases were treated with 15 minutes of electroacupuncture at the following points: Yinlingquan SP-9, Qugu REN-2, Yinlian LIV-11, and an Ahshi point. One or two auxiliary points chosen from Chengfu BL-36, Ciliao BL-32, Fengshi GB-31 and Zuwuli LIV-10 were also used. After acupuncture, moxibustion with moxa cone was performed on the main points. Treatment was once every other day for 10 sessions. Classically, treatment would select jing-river points as the main points, and appropriate shustream points as auxiliaries. However, for these patients, points were adopted according to subjective symptoms following the path of the adductor muscles. The approach achieved a
62.5% cure rate, with a further 25% considered effective.
