  62 patients with chronic bronchitis were divided into two groups. The first group, consisting of 32 patients, were given 30-40 minute treatments of foot reflexology daily for 10 days continuing with self care; and the control group of 32 patients, were given 10 minutes of ultra short-wave therapy every day for 10 days and then once a week for 19 weeks. They were also asked to stop smoking and to exercise.



After 10 sessions, and 2-3 years follow-up, it was found that foot reflexology was more effective in prevention of chronic bronchitis.
