Acupuncture helps with pain from spinal stenosis

Acupuncture can have a significant effect on pain and quality of life in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS), according to a pilot case series carried out by Iranian researchers. Twenty-four patients with LSS who had exacerbation of pain with walking were randomly selected and all underwent 10 sessions of acupuncture over three weeks. Twenty-three needles were inserted per patient per session (Yaoyangguan DU-3, Mingmen DU-4 and Baihui DU-20, plus bilateral Shenshu BL-23, Dachangshu BL-25, Guanyuanshu BL-26, Yinmen BL-37, Weizhong BL-40, Zhibian BL-54, Chengshan BL-57, Hegu L.I.-4 and Kunlun BL-60). Comparisons of scores at baseline immediately after the treatment period and at six weeks post-intervention showed that acupuncture was associated with improvement in pain and quality of life domains including emotions, vitality, general health and physical well-being.
