Objective: To observe the curative effect of traction combined with tendon loosening rotatory thrust in supine position. Methods: 72 patients of cervical spondylotic radiculopathy (CSR) were randomly divided into a treatment group (39 patients) and a control group (33 patients). The treatment group was treated with the method of traction combined with the method of tendon loosening rotatory thrust in a supine position, and the control group was treated with the method of mechanical traction combined with oral administration of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Liquid medicine is injected into acupoints. Through the gradual absorption at acupoints, drugs have a slow and sustained effect on acupoints and access the affected site along meridians and collaterals. The therapeutic effect was observed after two courses of treatment. Results: The total effective rate was 92.3% in the treatment group and 81.8% in the control group. Conclusions: Traction combined with tendon loosening rotatory thrust in a supine position is an effective method for the treatment of CSR.
