OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical curative effect of "oblique-pulling" maneuver in patients with lumbar intervertebral disc herniation (LIDH). METHODS: Sixty-five LIDH cases were randomly divided into experimental group and control group. In the experimental group 32 patients were treated by "oblique-pulling" maneuver, and 32 patients in the control group were treated by lumbar traction therapy. One case were excluded from the study and another one case were dropped from the study. After one course of treatment, the therapeutic effects of the two groups were compared quantitatively by using the JOA and VAS scores, including the improvement of signs, symptoms, living ability, and low back and leg pain. RESULTS: After one course of treatment, in the experimental group, 7 cases were controlled well, 16 cases were marked effect, 8 cases were effect, 1 case was no effect. In the control group, 4 cases were controlled well, 10 cases were marked effect, 13 cases were effect, 4 cases was no effect in control group. The clinical effective rate of the experimental group was 96.86%, which was higher than 87.10% of the control group (P<0.05). In the experimental group the scores of JOA and VAS were obviously improved after treatment (P<0.001) and the improvement was better than that of control group (P<0.01). CONCLUSION: The "oblique-pulling" maneuver has the characteristics of simple operation, repeatability, good efficiency, high safety.
