Lumbar spinal stenosis

Publication Title: 
Complementary Therapies in Medicine

OBJECTIVES: Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) negatively affects patients' quality of life. No systematic review evaluating the effects and safety of acupuncture for this population is available. We aimed to evaluate evidence indicating the effectiveness and safety of acupuncture for LSS. METHODS: We searched five English-language databases (EMBASE, MEDLINE, CENTRAL, CINAHL, and AMED) and one Chinese database (CAJ) for randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and non-randomised controlled clinical trials (CCTs) of needle acupuncture for LSS.
