Objective Evidence-based medicine method was used to evaluate the effect of Chinese traditional exercise therapy for lumbar disc herniation. Methods Randomized controlled trial (RCT) of Tai Chi, YijinJing, Wuqinxi and Baduanjin for the treatment of lumbar disc herniation was retrieved from CNKI, VIP, SinoMed and Wanfang databases. Two researchers independently screened, extracted and cross-checked the literature according to the inclusion criteria and exclusion criteria, and evaluated the quality of the literature using the Cochrane System Evaluation Manual. Meta-analysis was performed with stata16 software. Results A total of 12 studies with 995 cases were used. Meta-analysis results showed that : Visual analogue scale (VAS) [MD=-0.75, 95% CI (-1.09, -0.41), P<0.01], Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) lumbar spine score [MD=3.99, 95% CI (3.77, 5.21), P<0.01], Oswestry disability index (ODI) [MD=-4.74, 95%CI (-6.52, -2.95), P < 0.01].Conclusion Traditional exercise therapy such as Tai Chi can reduce the pain of lumbar disc herniation and improve lumbar function. However, the quality of the included literature is low and the evidence of curative effect is limited. Therefore, larger samples, multi-centers and high-quality randomized controlled trials are needed to support this.
