In recent years, the incidence of anorectal diseases in China is increasing year by year, and surgical treatment is a common treatment to treat anorectal diseases. However, complications such as pain, urinary retention and emotional problems often occur after anorectal surgery, which seriously affect the recovery of the disease and the daily life of patients. As a traditional TCM therapy, acupuncture treatment has the advantages of being safe, non-invasive and effective. Acupuncture treatment of anorectal diseases has the important functions of relieving pain, relieving mental pressure and promoting healing. This paper queries the relevant literature of acupuncture and moxibustion for the treatment of anorectal diseases, in order to provide a theoretical basis for the clinical application of postoperative treatment of anorectal diseases.
