Acupuncture Effective for Lower Back Pain!

AcupuncturLowBackPain_imagee provided relief and lasting benefit to nearly twice as many lower-back-pain patients as conventional pharmaceutical and exercise therapy, according to a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

Researchers divided 1,162 adults with chronic, lower back pain into three groups. One of these groups was treated with the standard drug and exercise therapy commonly used in Western medicine. A second group was treated with traditional Chinese acupuncture, with 14 to 20 needles inserted at specific, traditionally prescribed locations (“medians”) at a depth of up to 1.5 inches.

Acupuncture for Neck Pain: Does It Work?

Acupuncture for Neck Pain: Does It Work?

neck

Chronic neck pain is one of the most common pain issues faced by students and office workers. Oftentimes, spending hours at a desk each day, combined with poor postural habits, is the root cause of the pain. However, for some, sports injuries, whiplash, and the wrong bed mattress or pillow can set off the pain. Regardless of what caused the neck pain to begin, many people find relief with acupuncture when seemingly nothing else helped. Scientific researchers and clinicians have been conducting clinical trials on the use of acupuncture for neck pain since the 1980’s, and most of these studies have confirmed that acupuncture is safe and effective.

One recent pilot study (published October 30, 2013 in the British Medical Journal) conducted at the Kyunghee University Medical Center in Seoul, Korea found that acupuncture three times per week was as effective as 80 mg of NSAIDs taken daily for chronic neck pain.

A meta-analysis of studies including 17,922 patients, published in Complementary & Alternative Medicine, found acupuncture to be effective for the treatment of back and neck pain, osteoarthritis, and chronic headaches. Patients receiving acupuncture had remarkably better results than patients receiving “sham” acupuncture. Those patients who had the worst baseline mental status and worst baseline pain scores also experienced the most benefit from acupuncture. […]
