Ear acupuncture Points alleviates back pain in pregnant women.
Ear acupuncture can help ease lower back and pelvic pain, a complaint frequently reported in pregnant women, a new study finds.
According to the study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology pregnant women who had pressure needles held with tape at three acupuncture points in their ears for one week are less likely to experience lower back and pelvic pain.
While the pain-free phase was confined to one or two weeks, these women reported an improved ability to function following the treatment course.
Temporary tenderness in the ear area was the only side effect reported in these women.
Scientists are optimistic that their findings will lead to the development of more sustained pain relief strategies in pregnant women in the near future.
