We read with interest the pilot randomized, controlled trial by Quinlan-Woodward et al. (2016) published in Oncology Nursing Forum about the impact of acupuncture on pain, nausea, anxiety, and coping in women undergoing a mastectomy. We think that there are both theoretical and methodologic issues that do not allow the authors to conclude that their study demonstrated that acupuncture delivered postoperatively in the hospital after mastectomy can reduce the severity of symptoms experienced and increase the patient's ability to cope with her symptoms...

Burns are a very painful skin injury, or injury of soft tissues. The development of post-traumatic stress disorder can develop, even in those with minor injuries (Ia-IIb degree). Development of problems is very rapid and intense since, according to developmental embryology, the skin and central nervous system (CNS) descend from the same germ layer-ectoderm. This clinical report presents the results acquired from the data of 1008 patients suffering from burns treated by the acupuncture (ACU)-from 1983-2015 in the surgery ward of the hospital in Vysoke Myto in the Czech Republic...

Neck pain imposes a considerable personal and socioeconomic burden-it is one of the top five chronic pain conditions in terms of prevalence and years lost to disability-yet it receives a fraction of the research funding given to low back pain. Although most acute episodes resolve spontaneously, more than a third of affected people still have low grade symptoms or recurrences more than one year later, with genetics and psychosocial factors being risk factors for persistence. Nearly half of people with chronic neck pain have mixed neuropathic-nociceptive symptoms or predominantly neuropathic symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Randomized clinical trials (RCT) demonstrated that auricular acupuncture (AA) is effective in treatment of acute and chronic pain, although the mechanisms behind AA are not elucidated. METHODS: The data concerning the localization of AA points, which are commonly used to treat pain, were extracted from the meta-analysis of 17 RCTs and evaluated using the anatomical map of auricular afferent nerve supply. RESULTS: Fifteen out of 20 specific AA points, used in the treatment of pain, are situated in areas innervated mostly by the auricular branch of the vagal nerve (ABVN), whereas sham stimulation was applied at the helix of the auricle, innervated by cervical nerves...

Acupuncture therapy is performed by applying the needle insertion at discrete cutaneous locations and used for the treatments of diverse symptoms and disorders. In order to elucidate mechanistic basis on how acupuncture stimulation (AS) produces therapeutic effects, it is primarily important to understand tissue responses locally at the acupuncture site (acupoint). Here, we investigated integrin protein as molecular target responding to and integrating AS. Signals of α6 and β1 integrins were clearly induced at zusanli acupoint 24 h after AS in areas of nuclear clusters around the needle track...

OBJECTIVE: Despite of pain being important warning signal for body ability to respond to internal or external threats, chronic pain is perceived as a discomfort by patients, leading to somatic, emotional and social negative changes. Lifestyle, wrong seating habits and some occupations may contribute to chronic back pain. Therapy for chronic back pain should include not only pharmacological or invasive interventions, but mostly change of lifestyle, physiotherapy and non-pharmacological methods...

The effective management of temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD) requires a thorough understanding of the pathoanatomic factors that drive the underlying condition. After reviewing the etiology associated with TMD in Part 1 of this narrative review, the temporomandibular joint capsule, articular disc and muscles of mastication emerged as key players. (http://dx.doi.org/10.​1016/​j.​jbmt.​2017.​05.​017) Part 2 focuses on conservative treatment strategies best able to reduce the pain and disability associated with TMD...

Acupuncture might offer a novel approach to improve ED pain management. Our primary aim was to assess the efficacy of acupuncture in the emergency setting while secondary objectives were to explore its suitability through its side-effect profile, patient satisfaction, cost, administration time and points used. Seven databases and Google Scholar were searched up to 31 July 2016 using MeSH descriptors for three overarching themes concerning acupuncture, pain management and emergency medicine. Meta-analysis was performed on randomised trials for three comparator groups: acupuncture versus sham, acupuncture versus standard analgesia care and acupuncture-as-an-adjunct to standard care, to calculate the standardised mean difference and weighted mean difference for pain scores out of 10...
