Abstract

A very large acceleration in clinical studies on the efficacy of fire needle to treat lumbar disc herniation (LDH) are increasing, while studies on the assessment of its efficacy are still lacking. Therefore, this study will demonstrate the efficacy of fire needle in the treatment of LDH combining with the meta-analysis. The studies on randomized controlled trials (RCTs) will be searched at the databases of China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), WANFANG database (Chinese Medicine Premier), Chinese Scientific Journal Database (VIP), Chinese Biomedical Literature database (CBM), PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library from their inception to May 1, 2020. This authentic and multi-dimensional study will shed light on the referable information for the treatment of LDH with fire needle. This study will evaluate the efficacy of fire needle in the treatment of LDH. PROSPERO (registration number CRD42020158596).
