Improvement in Fibromyalgia Symptoms With Acupuncture: Results of a Randomized Controlled Trial

Improvement in Fibromyalgia Symptoms With Acupuncture: Results of a Randomized Controlled Trial | Holistic Health | Scoop.it
Mayo Clinic ProceedingsVolume 81, Issue 6, June 2006, Pages 749–757 ORIGINAL ARTICLE Improvement in Fibromyalgia Symptoms With Acupuncture: Results of a Randomized Controlled TrialDavid P. Martin, MD, PhDa, , , Christopher D. Sletten, PhDc, Brent A. Williams, MSb, Ines H. Berger,MDaa Department of Anesthesiology, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, Minnb Department of Health Sciences Research, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, Minnc Division of Psychology and Department of Pain Medicine, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Jacksonville, Fla. Dr Berger is now with the Medical College of Georgia, Augusta OBJECTIVETo test the hypothesis that acupuncture improves symptoms of fibromyalgia. PATIENTS AND METHODSWe conducted a prospective, partially blinded, controlled, randomized clinical trial of patients receiving true acupuncture compared with a control group of patients who received simulated acupuncture. All patients met American College of Rheumatology criteria for fibromyalgia and had tried conservative symptomatic treatments other than acupuncture. We measured symptoms with the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ) and the Multidimensional Pain Inventory at baseline, immediately after treatment, and at 1 month and 7 months after treatment. The trial was conducted from May 28, 2002, to August 18, 2003. RESULTSFifty patients participated in the study: 25 in the acupuncture group and 25 in the control group. Total fibromyalgia symptoms, as measured by the FIQ, were significantly improved in the acupuncture group compared with the control group during the study period (P=.01). The largest difference in mean FIQ total scores was observed at 1 month (42.2 vs 34.8 in the control and acupuncture groups, respectively; P=.007). Fatigue and anxiety were the most significantly improved symptoms during the follow-up period. However, activity and physical function levels did not change. Acupuncture was well tolerated, with minimal adverse effects. CONCLUSIONThis study paradigm allows for controlled and blinded clinical trials of acupuncture. We found that acupuncture significantly improved symptoms of fibromyalgia. Symptomatic improvement was not restricted to pain relief and was most significant for fatigue and anxiety.

A Randomized Controlled Trial of Acupuncture Added to Usual Treatment for Fibromyalgia

A Randomized Controlled Trial of Acupuncture Added to Usual Treatment for Fibromyalgia | Holistic Health | Scoop.it
Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine, Volume 40, Number 7 A Randomized Controlled Trial of Acupuncture Added to Usual Treatment for Fibromyalgia Authors: Targino, Rosa Alves; Imamura, Marta; Kaziyama, Helena H. S.; Souza, Luiz P. M.; Hsing, Wu Tu; Furlan, Andréa D.; Imamura, Satiko Tomikawa; Neto, Raymundo Soares Azevedo Source: Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine, Volume 40, Number 7, July 2008 , pp. 582-588(7) Abstract: Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of acupuncture for fibromyalgia. Methods: Fifty-eight women with fibromyalgia were allocated randomly to receive either acupuncture together with tricyclic antidepressants and exercise (n=34), or tricyclic antidepressants and exercise only (n=24). Patients rated their pain on a visual analogue scale. A blinded assessor evaluated both the mean pressure pain threshold value over all 18 fibromyalgia points and quality of life using SF-36. Results: At the end of 20 sessions, patients who received acupuncture were significantly better than the control group in all measures of pain and in 5 of the SF-36 subscales. After 6 months, the acupuncture group was significantly better than the control group in numbers of tender points, mean pressure pain threshold at the 18 tender points and 3 subscales of SF-36. After one year, the acupuncture group showed significance in one subscale of the SF-36; at 2 years there were no significant differences in any outcome measures. Conclusion: Addition of acupuncture to usual treatments for fibromyalgia may be beneficial for pain and quality of life for 3 months after the end of treatment. Future research is needed to evaluate the specific effects of acupuncture for fibromyalgia.

Series of studies first to examine acupuncture's mechanisms of action "works on HPA axis of endocrine system to reduce stress response"

Series of studies first to examine acupuncture's mechanisms of action "works on HPA axis of endocrine system to reduce stress response" | Holistic Health | Scoop.it
Science News ... from universities, journals, and other research organizations Series of Studies First to Examine Acupuncture's Mechanisms of Action Mar. 14, 2013 — While acupuncture is used widely to treat chronic stress, the mechanism of action leading to reported health benefits are not understood. In a series of studies at Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC), researchers are demonstrating how acupuncture can significantly reduce the stress hormone response in an animal model of chronic stress. The latest study was published today in the April issue of Journal of Endocrinology. "Many practitioners of acupuncture have observed that this ancient practice can reduce stress in their patients, but there is a lack of biological proof of how or why this happens," says the study's lead author, Ladan Eshkevari, PhD, an associate professor of nursing at Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies, a part of GUMC. "We're starting to understand what's going on at the molecular level that helps explain acupuncture's benefit." Eshkevari, a physiologist, nurse anesthetist and certified acupuncturist, designed a series of studies in rats to test the effect of electronic acupuncture on levels of proteins and hormones secreted by biologic pathways involved in stress response. Eshkevari used rats because these animals are often used to research the biological determinants of stress. They mount a stress response when exposed to winter-like temperatures for an hour a day. "I used electroacupuncture because I could make sure that each animal was getting the same treatment dose," she explains. The spot used for the acupuncture needle is called "Zusanli," which is reported to help relieve a variety of conditions including stress. As with rats, that acupuncture point for humans is on the leg below the knee. The study utilized four groups of rats for a 10-day experiment: a control group that was not stressed and received no acupuncture; a group that was stressed for an hour a day and did not receive acupuncture; a group that was stressed and received "sham" acupuncture near the tail; and the experimental group that were stressed and received acupuncture to the Zusanli spot on the leg. The researchers then measured blood hormone levels secreted by the hypothalamus pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis, which includes the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland and the adrenal gland. The interactions among these organs control reactions to stress and regulate digestion, the immune system, mood and emotions, sexuality and energy storage and expenditure. They also measured levels of NPY, a peptide secreted by the sympathetic nervous system in rodents and humans. This system is involved in the "flight or fight" response to acute stress, resulting in constriction of blood flow to all parts of the body except the heart, lungs and brain (the organs most needed to react to danger). Chronic stress, however, can cause elevated blood pressure and cardiac disease. "We found that electronic acupuncture blocks the chronic, stress-induced elevations of the HPA axis hormones and the sympathetic NPY pathway," Eshkevari says. She adds that the rats receiving the sham electronic acupuncture had elevation of the hormones similar to that of the stress-only animals. Eshkevari says this research complements her earlier reported work that focused only on NPY. In that study, Eshkevari and her team found that NPY levels were reduced in the experimental group almost to the level of the control group, while the rats that were stressed and not treated with Zusanli acupuncture had high levels of NPY (Experimental Biology and Medicine Dec. 2011). "Our growing body of evidence points to acupuncture's protective effect against the stress response," she continues. Eshkevari says additional research is needed to examine if acupuncture would be effective in reducing hormone levels after the animals are exposed to the stress of cold temperatures, and whether a similar observation can be made in humans.

11 Ways to Use Multimedia to Engage New Patients

11 Ways to Use Multimedia to Engage New Patients | Holistic Health | Scoop.it
Acquiring new patients is vital for every medical practice to survive and prosper. With the current trend in inbound marketing, multimedia has shown itself to be remarkably successful. The range of options available makes it possible to reach almost every conceivable type of prospective patient, and physicians are discovering easy to produce, cost-effective ways to use multimedia in their medical practice marketing activities.#1: Video ClipsA single minute of video has the same impact as 1.8 million words, according to a report by Forrester Research’s Dr. James McQuivey, and it’s been predicted that by 2014, 90% of all internet traffic will be video. As a physician, you can use video in your medical practice marketing in several ways. Use it to educate your patients on everything from the signs and symptoms of various medical conditions through providing advice on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.#2: PicturesHumans process visual information more easily from pictures than from words. Research shows that people remember up to 65% of information that includes images, compared with 10% from text only. Add images to your digital content that are meaningful and use SEO best practices such as naming conventions and alt tags to increase their searchability.#3: PodcastsAudio is almost as powerful as video, and there’s little as reassuring to the prospective patient than the doctor’s voice providing information in a confident, authoritative tone. Publish podcasts of discussions between the physician and a patient (with permission, of course!), or of the doctor delivering a public address. Short podcasts of satisfied patients giving anonymous testimonials also help the physician to create online reviews to encourage new patients.#4: Slide PresentationsGood, old-fashioned slide presentations have gained a new lease on life since the invention of SlideShare and Prezi. Create a slide deck showing the progression of a disease, treatment stages for a medical condition or the steps to follow to achieve health and wellness. Post the deck online using one of these tools and share it on your social media.#5: InfographicsInfographics are currently riding a wave of popularity in the medical practice marketing world. Aninfographic is a simple, visual way of learning about a complex topic without having to do lots of heavy reading. Use this method to pass on statistical information, or to educate patients about topics such as following a healthy diet and exercising regularly.#6: InstagramInstagram is a social networking platform that enables users to take photographs, edit and share them. Aetna Health Insurance uses Instagram very effectively in Passage, a mobile fitness app that enables users to turn every activity into a journey to a new destination, complete with photos and distances. Develop your own app using Instagram to encourage patients to share tips and experiences.#7: Vine / Instagram VideoVine is Twitter’s mobile app that allows users to create 6-second videos that can be shared by tweeting. Instagram’s videos are longer, allowing for 15 seconds of airtime. Both are great ways to post video clips of anything of interest to your prospective patients.#8: Downloadable DocumentsWhite papers and eBooks are perfect for sharing lengthier information. Create a resources section on your medical practice marketing website and encourage patients to download the material they need in exchange for their email address. Then sign them up to your email database for future communications.#9: WebinarsWebinars combine video, audio, slide decks, images, downloadable materials and other media in a unique way to engage your patients in real-time, informative healthcare sessions. Deliver public seminars virtually and expand your target market by offering regular webinars.#10 Instant ChatThis medium offers an immediacy that’s previously only been available using telephone calls or personal consultations, but it’s more convenient than a visit and more private than a call. Use options such as Skype and Facebook chat with video, audio or text to answer questions about your services, accounts and billing and other administrative issues.#11 Discussion ForumsForums typically make use of secure logins for users, who can remain anonymous if they choose to do so. This offers an option for people to ask real health-related questions that they may be embarrassed to raise during a consultation. Set up a support forum where patients can discuss symptoms and challenges with one another or ask questions of the physician that others can also view.
