To investigate the therapeutic effect and safety of acupuncture combined with massage method in the treatment of congenital muscular torticollis. 86 cases of children with congenital muscular torticollis admitted to our outpatient clinic from June 2016 to June 2020 were selected and randomly divided into 43 cases in the treatment group and 43 cases in the control group using the simple numerical table randomization method. The control group was treated with massage method, while the treatment group was treated with acupuncture method in combination with the control group. The changes of ultrasound characteristics, treatment effect and the angle of head deviation and passive neck mobility after treatment were compared and analyzed between the two groups. The results showed that the head deviation angle became smaller in both groups after treatment compared with that before treatment and the difference was statistically significant (p<0.05) and the difference between the head deviation angle before and after treatment in the treatment group was greater than that in the control group and the difference was statistically significant; color Doppler ultrasound dynamically observed the echogenicity of the muscle in the lesion area before and after treatment and found that there was a trend of homogenization. The difference in mass thickness was statistically significant (p<0.05) when comparing the two groups before and after treatment and between groups after treatment. The difference in sternocleidomastoid contracture length was statistically significant (p<0.05) when comparing the two groups before and after treatment, and the difference in syndrome score was statistically significant (p<0.01) when comparing the two groups before treatment; the difference in syndrome score before and after treatment was greater in the observation group than in the control group and the difference was statistically significant (p<0.01). In conclusion, acupuncture combined with massage is an effective treatment for congenital muscular torticollis and it is a treatment method worthy of clinical promotion.
