Acupuncture is effective to treat chronic pain.

Chronic pain (CP) is a common pain condition that lasts for more than 3 months. one-third of the world’s adult population experiences some types of physical pain conditions. Acupuncture is a technique to release the pain. Clinical studies have shown that acupuncture can improve chronic pain conditions, such as neck and shoulder pain and low back pain. A recent review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) analysed data between 2000 and 2018 about the effect of acupuncture on chronic pain release. 61 studies with total participants 20389 were included for the study. The chronic pain conditions include low back pain, headaches, neck pain, knee pain shoulder pain, jaw pain, hip and knee pain, myofascial pain and fibromyalgia.

Acupuncture improved the pain compared with the waiting list group. Acupuncture has better effects than conventional medication. Acupuncture has similar effects to physiotherapy. Acupuncture plus physiotherapy has better effects than physiotherapy alone.
