Episode 486: Needle in a Pain-Stack – Acupuncture for Chronic Low Back Pain

In episode 486, Mike and James go over the evidence we have for acupuncture in chronic low back pain. We find out that some evidence shows acupuncture will improve chronic low back pain in one in 6 patients. However, the magnitude of the effect seen is importantly less when you look at trials that actually use a sham control or those that are of higher quality or longer duration.
