Acupuncture Research for Breast Cancer

The European Journal of Cancer published a study giving further evidence of Acupuncture’s benefit to women undergoing breast cancer treatment. A randomised controlled eight week study, using electro-acupuncture with postmenopausal breast cancer patients who were taking Aromatic Inhibitors and experiencing joint pain, was carried out by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania. Aromatase inhibitors are a type of hormonal therapy commonly used in treating certain types of breast cancer. Patients taking using this type of therapy unfortunately experience a lot of joint pain and some will stop treatment due to the pain and suffering it causes. The study’s findings prove that acupuncture can help reduce this joint pain as the patients on the study who received acupuncture had a 43% decrease of pain after 10 sessions.
