    <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:City><st1:place>CHICAGO</st1:place></st1:City>: Acupuncture provided twice as many patients relief from lower back pain as did conventional drug and exercise therapy, which German researchers said on Monday might point to a "superplacebo" effect.

    In a study of 1,162 adults with chronic lower back pain, 48% of those in a group who underwent between 10 and 15 treatments with traditional Chinese "verum" acupuncture reported at least one-third less pain and an improvement in functional ability, with lasting benefits.

    That compared to 27% of those reporting relief in the group undergoing drug and exercise therapy.

    In verum acupuncture, 14 to 20 needles are inserted up to 1-1/2 inches deep at "medians" and other prescribed locations until the patient is said to experience a numbing sensation, called Qi.

    A third group of patients underwent 'sham' acupuncture, where needles are inserted randomly and less deeply around the painful area while avoiding medians. Of these, 44% reported relief from their back pain — more patients than conventional therapy and only slightly fewer than traditional acupuncture. Between 70% and 85% of people complain of back pain at some point in their lives, according to the study.

    Hi,

    I have personally benefited from both acupressure and acupuncture. When I was pregnant, I got acurpressure done for upper back pain. After I delivered, I had Sciatica (C-section) and got relief with acupuncture.

    You are right about getting it done from a professional - it causes very minimum discomfort and worth it for the relief that you get.

    Cheers,

    Sumathy

    Hi Sunkan,

    Like shanti, I am also scared. When I was affected by limbo spondylistis, they

    gave 'traction' for that.
