Objectives : The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of HWANGRYUNHAEDOKTANG Pharmacopuncture and Essential Bee Venom pharmacopuncture on cervical pain caused by traffic accident.
Methods : The clincal study was conducted to traffic accident patients who had admitted to Dae-Jeon University Cheonan Oriental Hospital from May 17, 2014 to September 2, 2014. The patients were simple randomization and divided into two groups. In one group, patients were treated with the oriental medicine and HWANGRYUNHAEDOKTANG Pharmacopuncture, While in the other group, patients were treated with the oriental medicine therapy and Essential Bee Venom pharmacopuncture therapy. visual analogue scale (VAS), pain threshold and neck disablity index (NDI) were used To estimate the efficacy of Pharmacopuncture treatment.
Results : 1) HWANGRYUNHAEDOKTANG Pharmacopuncture Group showed significant decrease of VAS and NDI after 3rd times treatment than before treatment (p<0.001). Essential Bee Venom Pharmacopuncture showed significant decrease of VAS, NDI and improve ment of pain threshold after 3rd times treatment than before treatment (p<0.01, p<0.001). 2) There was no significant difference between HWANGRYUNHAEDOKTANG Pharmacopuncture group and Essential Bee Venom Pharmacopuncture group in VAS, pain threshold and NDI.
Conclusions : We found out that HWANGRYUNHAEDOKTANG Pharmacopuncture and Essential Bee Venom Pharmacopuncture treatment are considered to be effective and useful in cervical pain caused by traffic accident.
