This study is a single blind, randomized controlled trail. condition/disease: acute low back pain treatment/intervention: motion style acupuncture treatment


"Motion Style Acupuncture Treatment(MSAT)" is a therapeutic technique using acupuncture needle created in Jaseng Hospital. This treatment involves patients with musculoskeletal pain to move the part of their body actively during acupuncture treatment under physicians' observation. This treatment is known to relieve the pain and increase the range of motion(ROM). However, there has been no specific value for the effect of this treatment.

So, the investigators will conduct a randomized controlled trials to verify the efficacy and safety of Lumbar MSAT. From March 2021 to December 2021, the investigators will collect 96 inpatients who are suffered from Low back pain with the numeric rating scale(NRS) over 5 after injury by acute traffic accident(TA). For experimental group(n=48), the investigators will conduct MSAT three times(on 2nd, 3rd and 4th day of hospitalization) and other Korean medical treatment. For control group(n=48), just Korean medical treatment except MSAT will be conducted. For these two groups, the investigators will compare NRS, Visual Analogue Scale(VAS), Range Of Motion(ROM), Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) and EuroQol 5-Dimension (EQ-5D), Patient Global Impression of Change (PGIC)."
