Back pain during pregnancy

Acupuncture relieves lower back pain during pregnancy

Acupuncture has been found to be more effective at relieving back pain during pregnancy than physiotherapy.Wedenberg K, Moen B, Norling A. Acta Obstet Gynae Scand 2000 May; 79 (5): 331-5.

A further study investigating the effects of acupuncture on lower back pain and pelvic pain during pregnancy noted average improvement in pain levels of at least 50% in 78% of patients in the acupuncture group and 15% in the control group.
