'Acupuncture for pelvic and back pain in pregnancy: a systematic review'.

A systematic review of the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating pelvic and back pain in pregnancy has found promising results. Two small trials on mixed pelvic/back pain and one large high-quality trial on pelvic pain met the inclusion criteria. The authors concluded that the current evidence, although limited, supports the use of acupuncture in treating the conditions.
