Acupuncture Eases Low Back Pain

Acupuncture Eases Low Back Pain

This important finding appeared on WebMD Health News on September 24, 2007 –

Acupuncture proved to be more effective than conventional lower back pain treatments in a new study, but it was no more effective than a sham needle procedure. The German study compared outcomes among 1,162 patients with chronic low back pain treated with traditional Chinese acupuncture; sham acupuncture; or a conventional approach to treating back pain using drugs, physical therapy, and exercise.

The study is the largest investigation of acupuncture vs. conventional nonsurgical treatment for lower back pain ever reported, researchers say.

“Acupuncture represents a highly promising and effective treatment option for chronic back pain,” researcher Heinz Endres, MD, tells WebMD. “Patients experienced not only reduced pain intensity, but also reported improvements in the disability that often results from back pain — and therefore in their quality of life.”
