Treatment of Post-Polio Syndrome with Auricular Acupuncture

By Francis T. H'Doubler, Jr., M.D.  

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of electrostimulation of auricular acupuncture points in the treatment of confirmed post-polio syndrome patients. Short and Long term responses in 12 study subjects were measured. Good or excellent results were obtained in all patients; 66.7% reported a return to their pre-existing levels of health. Our experience has shown that this modality can be effective as a permanent, relatively simple and inexpensive form of therapy for this condition. To our knowledge, this is the first effective therapy available for the over 75,000 post-polio syndrome patients in the United States alone.
