Cho, Kang, and Lee: Case Study of Jung-an Acupuncture on the Sequelae of Peripheral Facial Palsy


Objectives :

This study was designed to evaluate the effect of Jung-an acupuncture on the sequelae of peripheral facial palsy.

Methods :

Four patients suffering from sequelae of peripheral facial palsy were treated with Jung-an acupuncture. Yanagihara’s total scores, the scale of Peitersen grades and picture, before and after the Jung-an acupuncture treatment were compared to evaluate its treatment efficacy.

Results :

Yanagihara’s total score of all subjects were increased. Peitersen grades of all subjects were decreased.

Conclusions :

As indicated by unequivocal increase in all subjects’ Yanagihara and Peitersen scores, Jung-an Acupuncture treatment is effective in alleviating the sequelae of peripheral facial palsy. Randomized-controlled trial for further evaluation is necessary to verify the results and findings of this study.
