Pain intensity and cervical range of motion improves in women with myofascial pain who are treated with acupuncture

 

Sixty women presenting with at least one trigger point in the upper trapezius involving local or referred pain lasting more than six months, were randomised into electro-acupuncture (EA), acupuncture (AC) and sham groups. Eight treatment sessions were carried out and a follow-up was conducted after 28 days. There was a significant reduction in general pain levels in both the EA and AC groups after eight sessions compared with sham. EA was shown to be better than AC for local pain relief. Both treatments also resulted in small increases in cervical range of motion.
