Also, back pain is the most frequent cause of activity limitations in people under 45. Several recent studies done in both Europe and America have suggested that acupuncture is an effective treatment for chronic low back pain. I found the most recent, a study conducted in Washington and California, to be particularly interesting. Following a description of the study and its results, I'll share my thoughts on the conclusion. Study Design A total of 638 adults with uncomplicated chronic low back pain participated in this study. (People with spinal stenosis, sciatica, or previous back surgeries were not included.)
