A new report reviews the evidence for acupuncture in the treatment of endometriosis-related pain. The paper, “Is acupuncture effective in the treatment of pain in endometriosis?“ appeared in the Journal of Pain Research.
Endometriosis occurs when tissue from the uterus grows in other regions of the body, such as the ovaries, fallopian tubes, or the bowel. This can be a painful condition and affects more than 6.3 million American women and millions more worldwide. Better understanding of the factors that cause endometriosis could aid in the development of treatments and prevention.
Acupuncture has been used in pain management and could be an alternative strategy for the treatment of endometriosis-related pain.
