Many know that acupuncture is the go-to therapy for back pain, great news is a new study confirms what many of us knew all along; that acupuncture does provide relief for those suffering from sciatica pain.
Researchers conducted a randomized clinical trial and determined that warm needle acupuncture achieves a 96.15% total effective rate. In a comparison of treatment protocols, two types of acupuncture were compared. Two groups received identical treatments using electroacupuncture; however, one group also received warm needle acupuncture via moxibustion. Warm needle acupuncture produced a 96.15% total effective rate compared with unheated needles, which achieved a 69.23% total effective rate.
