Acupuncture reduces pelvic and back pain during pregnancy

A Scandinavian study of 72 women showed that acupuncture was 60% effective at reducing back pain and pelvic pain experienced during 24-37th week of pregnancy. Treatment was given five times over three weeks, with continuing weekly treatments in some cases.(Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica. 83(3): 246-50, 2004)
