Acupuncture as a treatment modality for back problems – fibromyalgia related research

Concepts of acupuncture in traditional Chinese medicine are

presented for clarity and contrast to Western medical

concepts. Various acupuncture techniques and methods are

discussed including dry needling, electroacupuncture,

acupuncture using hypodermic needles, and injecting various

solutions into the acupuncture sites. Potential complications

and precautions are also presented. A type of chronic back

pain is discussed that is possibly associated with a

radiculopathically induced, hypersensitivity myofascial

syndrome that presents as a fibromyalgia-like syndrome.

Effective acupuncture treatment for the described chronic

fibromyalgia-like syndrome is discussed.
