  Abstract Objective: To obsere the effect of acupuncture plus LONG's manual manipulations on the functional improvement of the patients with lumbar intervertebral disc protrusion. Methods: 60 cases of the patients were randomly divided into a observation group and a control group, 30 cases in each group. The observation group was treated with acupuncture plus LONG's manual manipulations, and the control group was treated with single acupuncture. The functions of the lumber vetebrae were processed in accordance with the assessment system of Japanese Orthopedic Association (JOA), and the therapeutic effects were assessed by Visual Analog Scale (VAS). Results: After the treatments, the differences in JOA and improvement indexes were statistically significant (P<0.05) between the two groups. VAS was decreased much remarkably in the observation group (P<0.01) than before the treatments and decreased remarkably in the control group (P<0.05) than before the treatments. There was a remarkable difference in VAS between the two groups after the treatments (P<0.05). Conclusion: Acupuncture plus LONG's manual manipulations are better than single acupuncture in improving the fuctions of the patients with lumbar intervertebral disc protusion.
