Results & Conclusions:

Other symptom with Knee pain was Click 30.8 %, stiffness 25.6 %, press pain 16.7 %, swelling 14.1 %, fever 5.1 %, none 7.7 %. VAS of moxibustion treatment is significantly increased after treatment. Expectation of moxibustion treatment is not. “Bad smell” is the first cause of evasion of moxibustion therapy. It should have been considered to reduce bad smell in development of moxibustion.
