Therapeutic Effect of Millimeter Wave Conduction Therapy According to the Way of the Meridian on Cancer Pain

  • Healthcare marts

Abstract Objective: To observed the effect of millimeter wave conduction therapy according to the way of the meridian on cancer pain. Method: There are 48 patients who suffer from different diseases. Adopted the meridian conduction millimeter wave therapy machine to irradiate the relevent acupuncture point treamtent method. Results: The therapeutic method has a very good analgesic effect on cancer pain. The effective rate was 77.1% and the complete response rate was 31.3%. Except that, it also had a significant effect on the elimination of edema. Conclusion: This therapy is convenient, safe, and has no side effects. It can improve the quality of life of patients and provides a new treatment for cancer patients.

Key Word Millimeter Wave, Cancer, Acupoint Treatment

Pain is a common and major complication of cancer patients, about 60% to 90% of advanced cancer patients with varying degrees of pain. Pain relief is the main measure to improve the quality of life of patients with mid-satge and terminal cancer. In recent years, millimeter waves have been shown to have a better assistant therapeutic effect on malignant tumors in clinical studies. Our department has proved that the millimeter wave conduction according to the way of the meridian therapy for 48 cancer patients has obtained satisfactory results from December 1997 to September 1998. The report is as follows.

Data and Methods

Normal Data

Case selection: 48 patients in this group were diagnosed by pathology and clinical diagnosis, they all with mid-term and terminal cancer with obvious pain had no radiotherapy and chemotherapy for pain relieving within 1 month.

Gender and age: 48 of them, 28 males and 20 females, aged 35 to 81 years, with an average age of 58.2 years.

Tumor position and clinical stage: This group contains 12 lung cancer, 9 breast cancer, 7 head, and neck cancer, 6 colorectal cancer, 4 gastric cancer, 3 liver cancer, 3 ovarian cancer, 2 pancreatic cancer, 1 bladder cancer, 1 prostate cancer. Clinical stage: 20 in stage III, 28 in stage IV. Twelve of the above patients underwent surgery, and 42 patients underwent CT or MRICT and clinical examination to confirm local tumor recurrence or distant metastasis.

Causes of pain and parts: See Table 1. It can be seen from the table that the pain area is mostly in the chest and abdomen, secondly, it is the waist and neck. The main reason of pain are a local recurrence, bone metastasis, lymph node metastasis, and nerve invasion.

Table 1 The reason of pain and parts in 48 patients

Degree of pain rating: the patient was grading pain rating according to VRS. Level 0 has no pain. Grade I is mild pain, tolerable, does not affect sleep, and can live normally. Grade II is moderate pain, pain is obvious, sleep is disturbed, and general pain relief, sedation, and sleeping pills are required. Grade III is severe pain, sharp pain, accompanied by autonomic dysfunction, severe sleep disturbance, and need narcotic drugs. There were 22 patients with Grade II pain and 26 patients with Grade III pain, and no mild pain.

Treatment method

Millimeter wave treatment equipment: Multi-source meridian transmission millimeter wave therapy machine. The machine has 4 radiation heads, the output frequency is 36GH2, the output power is 120mW, and the millimeter wave power density of the small hole output can reach 400mW/cm².

Treatment method:The patient was treated once a day for 30 minutes, 5 times a week, and 20 times for a course of treatment. Firstly, selected the local pain acupoints(Ashi point), and then combined with the way of the meridian. A millimeter wave radiation probe ishould be placed on the skin of the acupoint surface. Chest pain should take acupoints like Feiyu (UB13), Qimen (LIV14), Neiguan (PC6), Shanzhong (REN17) ect. Abdominal pain should take acupoints like Weiyu (UB21), Zhongwan (REN12), Zu sanli (ST36), Shenque (REN8), Ganyu (UB18)ect. Low back pain should take acupoints like Shenyu (UB23), Weizhong (UB40), Sanjiao (UB22) Mingmen (DU4). Hegu (LI4), Neiguan (PC6), Fengchi (GB20), Yingxiang (LI20). Shoulder pain should take acupoints like Neiguan (PC6), Dazhu (UB11), Jianjing (GB21). Upper limb pain should take acupoints like Quchi (LI11), Neiguan (PC6). Lower limb pain should take acupoints like Fengshi (GB31), Xuehai (SP10), Zussanli (ST36), Yanglingquan (GB34).

Before the millimeter wave treatment, 10 patients did not use painkillers, 10 patients used antipyretic and analgesic drugs, 21 patients used weak morphine drugs, and 7 patients used strong anesthetics. After the millimeter wave treatment, the painkiller is no longer added, and the painkiller is gradually reduced after the millimeter wave treatment takes effect, until the drug is completely stopped. If 10 treatments are not effective, the pain is aggravated and the millimeter wave treatment should be stopped.

Efficacy evaluation

According to the international standard for pain relief.

CR: Complete pain relief after treatment.

PR: Pain is significantly less than before treatment, sleep is basically undisturbed, and can live normally.

MR: The pain was relieved before the treatment, but the pain was still noticeable and the sleep was disturbed.

NR: There is no reduction in pain compared with before treatment. CR+Pr is effective for pain relief.

Result

Analgesic effect

See Table 2. For 48 patients with cancer, the effective rate of pain relief was 77.1% (37/48), of which the complete response rate was 31.3% (15/48) and the partial response rate was 45.8% (22/48).

Analgesic effect and clinical stage of different diseases

See Table 3. Millimeter wave treatment has the great effective for breast cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer, head and neck cancer. The effective rate of pain relief is 71.4% to 77.8%. The effective rate of pain relief for colon and rectal cancer, liver cancer and ovarian cancer is 66.7. %, pancreatic cancer, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, poor efficacy, analgesic relief rate of 50%, all partial relief, no CR.

Cancer is still one of the leading reason of death in humans today, and at least 5 million people worldwide suffer from cancer pain every day. Therefore, controlling cancer pain is a global strategic step, and WHO has listed cancer control as one of the four priorities of comprehensive cancer treatment planning.

Millimeter wave is a new method for the treatment of cancer in the recent two years. To reach the viscera by means of meridian conduction, which improves the local microcirculation, promotes blood circulation and lymphatic circumfluence, enhances cell energy metabolism and biological effects, and achieves pain relief and eliminate edema.

Through clinical observation, the effective rate of pain relief for cancer patients was 77.1%, the complete remission rate was 31.3%, and the partial remission rate was 45.8%. None of the whole group suffered from a worsening of the condition due to millimeter wave treatment.

The results of this paper suggest that millimeter waves have a good effect on breast cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer, head and neck cancer, and the effective rate of pain relief is above 70%. Pancreatic cancer, bladder cancer, prostate cancer analgesic efficacy is poor, no complete remission, analysis and disease are associated with stage IV. The effectiveness of pain relief in various areas is better with limbs (up to 100%). For the neck, waist pain relief is also 80%. For multiple pains in the body, extensive bone metastases are poorly effective.

In addition, it was observed that patients who suffer from the pain a long time and relieved the pain recently were treated with twice daily millimeter wave treatment, and the analgesic effect was significantly improved. Eight of the 48 cancer patients had local swelling, and the edema disappeared completely after millimeter wave treatment. After random visits, 6 patients have not relapsed, and 2 relapsed patients can be relieved by re-treatment with millimeter waves.

Clinical practice has proven that millimeter-wave conduction according to the way of the meridian therapy can achieve better results for cancer pain and eliminate edema, thereby reducing patient suffering, improving quality of life, and increasing patient confidence in treatment.

The medical treatment is convenient, safe, has good analgesic effect and no side effects, and provides a new treatment for cancer patients.
