Yesterday in the Archives of Internal Medicine a study was published that was conducted in Germany. This study studied the efficacy of acupuncture’s ability to reduce low back pain.
The study showed that with 6 months of twice weekly treatments, participants low back pain improved 47.6% in those receiving acupuncture for the pain. Interestingly enough the pain in the sham acupuncture group also improved. 44.2% of people in that group had their pain improve. These two numbers are in contrast to 27.4% improvement in the group of people who received conventional treatments.
