ABSTRACT

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis ( ALS) is a neurological lesion characterized by simultaneous involvement of upper and lower motor neurons, selective and progressive degeneration, leading to progressive paralysis and death, and is one of the most difficult diseases in the world. one. So far, there are only a handful of drugs for the treatment of ALS. Acupuncture has achieved certain results in the field of ALS treatment, which can effectively alleviate the clinical symptoms of patients and improve their quality of life. The author summarizes the methods and related mechanisms of acupuncture treatment of ALS at home and abroad in recent years, in order to provide a theoretical basis for acupuncture treatment of ALS in the future.
