  Title Acupuncture as a treatment for osteoarthritis of the knee: Clinical relevance
Journal Top Clin Chiropr. 2000 Jun;7(2):39-42
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Purpose: Osteoarthritis of the knee is a common problem that may impact quality of life, particularly in older individuals. This article reviews recent research on acupuncture for treating this disorder.

Method: A review of clinical acupuncture literature for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee with attention to clinical research difficulties such as sham and placebo control trials.

Summary: The clinical research on the benefits of acupuncture for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis in both outcomes and random control trials models has indicated that it can be a useful therapy for patients with moderate or greater osteoarthritis and that side effects are rare. Currently clinical research in acupuncture has yet to establish a reliable placebo-controlled technique.
