RESEARCH German scientists have shown that acupuncture is more effective treatments for back pain than conventional techniques. The study, conducted by experts from the University of Bochum, found that almost half of patients treated with acupuncture felt pain relief over several months. On the other hand, only a quarter of patients taking the drugs or other Western therapies felt the same effect. According to a report presented in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine, and even fake acupuncture was more effective than medication. Experts believe that this means that the body responds positively to all the stimuli with a needle, and one possible explanation is that they block pain messages received by the brain. According to another, acupuncture could induce a positive placebo effect. Dr. Heinz Endres believes that "acupuncture is a promising technique for treating chronic back pain." "Patients experienced not only pain reduction but also improvement of the situation that caused them, and thus the quality of life," he said. The study included 1100 patients. They were divided into groups that were treated with conventional therapy, acupuncture and fake version of the technique. In the final treatment were also used needles, but have not plunged so deep as in the first. We also have not poked into key points and not turned over after the bite. Conventional methods included painkillers, massage and heat treatment. After six months of therapy 47% of patients in the acupuncture group reported a significant improvement, 44% treated with fake acupuncture had the same results, while only 27% of patients treated with the conventional method, the sense of progress. Dr. James Young from Rush University in Chicago, said he does not understand the mechanisms of the so-called alternative treatments, but pointed out that this does not mean that it does not work.
