GMF 88 gross motor Rating Scale and sitting ability (LSS) grading were performed in both groups. Observation group only routine exercise rehabilitation training. The control group was treated with acupuncture at lumbar Huatuo Jiaji point on the basis of exercise rehabilitation. 2 groups, once a day,10 times a course of treatment. The next course of treatment was continued at an interval of 1 week, and the treatment lasted for 3 courses. Before and after treatment, the sitting function area (B) and sitting ability (LSS) of GMFM88 gross motor function assessment were evaluated, and the differences were compared. Results: In the first course of treatment, there was no statistical significance in the total effective rate between the observation group and the control group (P>0.05). After the second and third courses of treatment, the total effective rate in control group was higher than that in observation group, and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). Conclusion: Acupuncture at lumbar Huatuo Jiaji point combined with exercise therapy can significantly improve the sitting ability of children with cerebral palsy.
