Objective: To investigate the clinical efficacy and safety of Muzu formula combined with auricular point seed-pressing in treating postpartum abdominal pain. Methods: 100 patients with postpartum abdominal pain admitted to our hospital from January 2021 to December 2022 were selected and divided into a control and observation group, with 50 patients in each group according to a random number table. The control group was treated with auricular point seed-pressing, and the observation group was treated with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) foot baths combined with auricular point seed-pressing. The pain questionnaire (SF-MPQ) scores and clinical efficacy of the two groups were compared. Results: Compared with the control group, the SF-MPQ score of the observation group was significantly decreased after treatment (P<0.05, P<0.01), and the effective clinical rate was significantly increased (P<0.05). Compared with before treatment, SF-MPQ scores in both groups were significantly decreased after treatment (P<0.01). Conclusion: The treatment of postpartum abdominal pain caused by qi stagnation and blood stasis with Muzu formula combined with auricular point seed-pressing can significantly improve the patient's clinical symptoms, and the curative effect is satisfactory and worthy of further promotion and application in the clinic.
