Of course, there are several researches in the world demonstrating the effectiveness of acupuncture in this problem. At that moment, I have two patients undergoing treatment with excellent results.
Look at this piece of research: "The study showed no effect of acupuncture on outcome measures, including acute phase markers. However, a fall in EVA in both groups was observed, mainly in the acupuncture group (ES = 4). It should be noted that all patients were on NSAIDs / analgesics without the use of biological drugs despite their recommended and well-established use. The fact confirms that the protocol is a study of superiority, not inferiority. In addition, the selected patients had lost regular medical follow-up in the Rheumatology department.
It has been proven that acupuncture blocks pain by repeated stimulation of algogenic receptors, spinal cord and mesencephalic gray matter. Other mechanisms may be involved, such as actions in specific neuronal groups and the activation of both the sympathetic neurovegetative nervous system and the hypothalamus hypophysis-adrenal axis. Prolonged needling response corroborates the hypothesis of the therapeutic effect of acupuncture, as opposed to analgesic acupuncture with transient duration (involved in mechanisms of long-term depression, placebos effects and descending inhibitory analgesic system). In the literature, studies on acupuncture are scarce, and include uncontrolled trials with samples of varying sizes.11,12 Our study suggests the likelihood of a beneficial effect of acupuncture and is original.
