Acupuncture is effective treatment for shoulder impingement syndrome
A study investigated acupuncture treatment of shoulder impingement syndrome. Patients with shoulder impingement syndrome were allocated into two groups: acupuncture group and control group. The treatment was carried out over 4 weeks, with the participants receiving a session every week. The results were measured immediately after the treatment (T1) and 3 months later (T2). A total of 68 participants were a mean age at 33.4 years. They found significant differences in the analyzed results between the two groups, a decrease on the intensity of pain for the acupuncture group was significantly greater than that for control group. Shoulder function was better in the acupuncture group. No side effects were found. They concluded that the use of acupuncture to treat impingement syndrome seems to be a safe and reliable technique to achieve clinically significant results and could be implemented in the therapy options offered by the health services.
