CONCLUSION: It is possible to infer that physiotherapy's techniques used in patients hospitalized for COPD exacerbation, based on this review, were the high frequency chest wall oscillation (HFCWO) on the chest; relaxing massage and active exercises, electrical stimulation via electro-acupuncture; strengthening of the quadriceps; the ELTGOL bronchial drainage technique (expiration with the glottis open in the lateral posture) and an incentive spirometer.

Informing hot flash treatment decisions for breast cancer survivors: a systematic review of randomized trials comparing active interventi...

Abstract Patient-centered decision making about hot flash treatments often incorporates a balance of efficacy and side effects in addition to patient preference. This systematic review examines randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing at least two non-hormonal hot flash treatments in breast cancer survivors. In July 2015, PubMed, SCOPUS, CINAHL, Cochrane, and Web of Science databases were searched for RCTs comparing active, non-hormonal hot flash treatments in female breast cancer survivors. Thirteen trials were included after identifying 906 potential studies. Four trials were dose comparison studies of pharmacologic treatments citalopram, venlafaxine, gabapentin, and paroxetine. Hot flash reduction did not differ by tamoxifen or aromatase inhibitor use. Citalopram 10, 20, a...

What Can The Evolution Of Our Sleep Habits Teach ...

When Amy Ozski started experiencing insomnia last August, it wasn't due to anything drastic. She recalls a heat wave in the Boston area where she lives, a bit more stress at work, and her schedule being thrown off for a few consecutive days. But the combination was enough to trigger a pattern: Ozski started having trouble falling asleep, and before long the problem snowballed into a chronic issue. Sometimes it would take her hours to fall asleep, or she'd wake up in the middle of the night and struggle to conk out again. Sleep -- and the lack of it -- took over her life. "It was all I thought about during the day," she says. "I was miserable." Ozski tried everything she could think of to fix the problem, from transcendental meditation to acupuncture, but to no avail. Finally, she sought he...

CONCLUSION: The results of our neuroimaging study suggest that the combination of acupoints could more widely activate areas of the brain compared to a single acupoint.

Abstract To investigate the effect of electro-acupuncture (EA) as a non-pharmacological intervention to prevent or reduce chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) in breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy of taxane. Women with stage I-III breast cancer scheduled to receive taxane therapy were randomized to receive a standardized protocol of 12 true or sham EA (SEA) weekly treatments concurrent with taxane treatment.

A total of 180 subjects were screened, 63 enrolled and 48 completed week 16 assessments. Mean age was 50 with 25 % white, 25 % black, and 43 % H...

Authors: Liu YS, Gadau M, Zhang GX, Liu H, Wang FC, Zaslawski C, Li T, Tan YS, Berle C, Li WH, Bangrazi S, Liguori S, Zhang SP Abstract In planning for a large-scale multicenter trial to evaluate the effect of acupuncture for the treatment of lateral elbow pain, a pilot study was conducted. This was a prospective, investigator- and patient-blinded, nonrandomized, placebo controlled trial. Subjects were evaluated at baseline, before fourth, seventh, and ninth treatment, and at a two-week posttreatment follow-up. The treatment group received unilateral acupuncture at LI 10 and LI 11 at the affected side with manual needle manipulation; the control group received sham-laser acupuncture at the same acupoints. Measures included (i) disabilities of the arm, shoulder, and hand (DASH) ques...

More than half of women who suffer hot flashes and night sweats in menopause use complementary therapies to attempt to alleviate symptoms. Although treating hot flashes with acupuncture has been shown in previous studies to be more effective than self-care or no treatment, a recent randomized trial conducted in Australia found no benefit of Chinese medicine needle acupuncture compared with noninsertive sham acupuncture in reducing the severity of hot flashes. (Ee C et al. Ann Intern Med. 2016;164(3):146-154). (Source: JAMA)

Id: 58: acupuncture therapy, an underreported cause of pneumotho...

We report a case of a tension pneumothorax following acupuncture therapy. Case Presentation A 70 year-old-man was receiving acupuncture therapy for right-sided post-herpetic neuralgia involving the 4th–7th intercostal nerves. Shortly after, he started complaining of severe dyspnea and pleuritic chest pain and was transferred to the emergency department. His SpO2 was 77% on room air, respiratory rate 38/min, heart rate 129/min and blood pressure 154/82 mm Hg. Absence of breath sounds was noted on the right side. Chest X-ray (CXR) revealed a right-sided pneumothorax with mediastinal shift (figure 1). A 14F chest tube was placed and a follow-up CXR showed resolution of the pneumothorax. On hospital day#2, the air leak resolved and the chest tube was clamped, but the patient develo...


Acupuncture Therapy

Acupuncture therapy is a traditional Chinese technique where needles are inserted into different points on the body to relieve it from pain, or simply for therapeutic uses. Although acupuncture is not medically supported because of the lack of concrete evidence to support its therapeutic claims, it is still a very popular therapeutic technique which millions of people advocate. Medical practitioners, even if they cannot advocate the method, will not stop their patients from utilizing it as it does not interfere with the known and recognized medical therapies.

There are some well documented advantages to acupuncture where they were recognized to have greatly reduced the incidents of post operative nausea and it provided relief from lower back pains compared to known medical and non-medical approaches.

There is now a move to continue studying the benefits of acupuncture therapy, however, the invasive nature of the technique can be a concern especially when trying to establish a valid scientifically controlled study.

Several scientists still are highly critical of the supposed effects of the treatment for pain and neurological conditions and claim biased results and poor methods used to create concrete evidence. However, the medical societies have not totally closed their doors and actually say that the method is safe as long as it is practiced by a well trained practitioner and that the needles are sterile and meets the safety standards.

Acupuncture first gained the attention from western media when in 1972 television was flooded with images of a man undergoing an open chest surgery with the only anaesthetic used was acupuncture and the man was fully awake. From that day on, Western culture has fully embraced the technique and people have been clamouring for its recognition as a reliable and effective medical and therapeutic technique.

More and more people are turning to this method as a trusted alternative to certain physical and mental problems which no known medical therapy could help. For people with insomnia, they find that they sleep better at night after a session. After several sessions, the insomnia is corrected.

Acupuncture attempts to correct the unbalance energies of the body, the yin and the yang. There are complicated technicalities regarding the balancing process, the fact remains that certified and recognized practitioners are very successful in helping people who have nowhere else to go for help. Because of this, no matter what the FDA or the AMA says, acupuncture will remain with us for a long time as it has for several thousand years.
