Abstract:Objective To study on safe depth and angle of needling lumbar Jiaji (Ex-B2) for treatment of prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disc. Methods CT technique was used for scanning investigation on the depth and angle of needling lumbar Jiaji (Ex-B2). Results When the acupuncture needle or puncture needle was inserted at an angle of 20~30° to the sagittal plane of the human body, the tip of needle could reached to extradural posterior space of the depth of lumbar Jiaji points (being the best inserting depth), in which catgut or medicine could be placed. Conclusion Acupuncture or catgut stimulating the extradural posterior space at the depth of lumbar Jiaji is superior to the traditional needling method in treatment of prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disc.
