ALBEAR DE LA TORRE, Dagmaris; CEDENO RODRIGUEZ, Enriqueta; FAJARDO CARDERO, Selenys  and  RIVEAUX VERDECIA, Raúl. Effectiveness of auriculotherapy in patients with acute low back pain. MEDISAN [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.6, pp.739-745. ISSN 1029-3019.

A quasi-experiment study of 100 patients with acute low back pain who went to the Orthopedics Service and were referred to the Natural and Traditional Medicine Service of the MININT Polyclinic in Santiago de Cuba, was carried out from January, 2015 to the same month in 2016, aimed at evaluating the effectiveness of auriculotherapy. Two groups were conformed (A and B) of 50 members each: the first ones received treatment with auriculotherapy and the second, pharmacological treatment. Most of those affected in the group A improved in less time and had less adverse effects than those of the group B, which demonstrated the effectiveness of this treatment in the relief of the lumbar pain
