Acupuncture for Chronic Back Pain

This article describes a study that used electroacupuncture to treat chronic low back pain and showed that “acupuncture group did have modest improvement in disability — they reported improvements in walking comfortably, standing for longer periods, bending or kneeling, and other daily activities.”

This study was a “double-blinded randomized trial of electroacupuncture”. Electroacupuncture “uses a small electric current passed between needles, a practice some believe provides additional pain relief compared with regular acupuncture.” https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/30/well/live/acupuncture-helped-people-with-back-pain-walk-and-bend-better.html
