GONZALEZ GAMEZ, Soini; RODRIGUEZ LABANINO, Reinaldo; CABALLERO ORDUNEZ, Adis  y  SELVA CAPDESUNER, Ana. Acupuncture therapeutic efficacy in patients with lower back pain. MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.3, pp.300-307. ISSN 1029-3019.

A phase II clinical therapeutical trial on 100 patients with acute lower back pain who attended the Natural and Traditional Medicine Service at ¨América Labadí¨ Psychopedagogical Medical Center from Santiago de Cuba was carried out from July, 2009 to July, 2010 in order to assess the efficacy of the acupunctural treatment on them. To achieve this goal, two study groups (A and B) composed of 50 members each were created: the first ones received the natural medicine effects and the second ones received the conventional medicine effects. The results were as follows: those treated with acupuncture improved their physical condition in a short period of time and had less side effects compared to the patients who used drugs, in which case it can be inferred that Chinese millenary technique was effective to relieve lumbar pain on whom it was applied.
