[Medscape] A multimodal, integrative medicine approach (that includes acupuncture) to patients with chronic pain referred for implantation of a spinal cord stimulator shows efficacy in decreasing pain to such an extent that patients could forgo the implantation, according to research presented here at the American Academy of Pain Management (AAPM) 23rd Annual Clinical Meeting.

[Biomedical Journal] Pain control has been emphasized as a priority for both practitioners and inpatients with rib fractures, since analgesia could only offer limited relief from severe pain. A prospective and randomized controlled trial was conducted to analyze the efficacy and efficiency of acupuncture in acute pain relief for inpatients with rib fractures.
Results show that this novel acupuncture modality in which the needle insertion sites are corresponding to the pain spots can be a safe and viable therapy for relieving pain in inpatients with rib fractures.
