Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) is a disease based on degenerative pathological changes. Most commonly seen in older people and one of the main causes of Kenn, its symptoms include swollen knees, pain when going up and down stairs. If left untreated, it can lead to joint deformity and disability. Many clinical studies have reported that abdominal acupuncture has a good effect on KOA treatment, but there is no relevant systematic review. The aim of this study is therefore to evaluate the efficacy and safety of abdominal acupuncture in the treatment of KOA.

Insomnia is characterized by high incidence, easy recurrence and difficulty in healing. Severe insomnia not only seriously affects the function of body organs, but psychological patients also cause great damage. Abdominal acupuncture (AA) has fewer side effects and is increasingly being used to treat insomnia. This study aimed to systematically examine the efficacy and safety of abdominal acupuncture in the treatment of insomnia.

Three hundred cases were randomly assigned to a treatment group and a traction control group. The treatment group was treated with abdominal acupuncture on the prescription of an acupuncture point, that is, Zhongwan (CV 12), Guanyuan (CV 4) and others were selected. The control group was treated with hanging traction by a cervical spinal extraction belt in the jaw-pillow seated position. Short-term and long-term therapeutic effects were observed at the end of the therapeutic cycle and 90 days after the end of treatment, respectively.
