OBJECTIVE: To compare therapeutic effects of penetration needling at the back and western medicine on fibromyalgia syndrome (FS).

METHODS: Thirty-eight cases were randomly divided into the observation group treated with penetration needling at the first and second lines of The Bladder Meridian of Foot-Taiyang and Governor Vessel, and the control group treated mainly with oral administration of amitriptyline, 19 cases in each group.

RESULTS: There were significant differences in the cured-markedly effective rate and the results of follow-up for 6 months for the cured-markedly effective cases between the observation group and the control group (all P < 0.01).

CONCLUSION: Penetration needling therapy in the therapeutic effect on fibromyalgia syndrome is better than the medical treatment.
