The ancient healing art, acupuncture, has been the topic of numerous scientific studies to determine its efficacy. In particular, acupuncture has been examined as a treatment for osteoarthritis. The most complete study of acupuncture was a meta-analysis of data from more than 29 randomized controlled trials of acupuncture for chronic pain. (Vickers AJ, et al. Arch Int Med.September 2012)
The study found that patients receiving acupuncture had less pain than controls and acupuncture was statistically superior to both sham and no acupuncture controls for the treatment of osteoarthritis.
The study concluded that acupuncture is a reasonable referral option for patients with pain due to OA.
