Re: Acupuncture treatment for pain: systematic review of randomised clinical trials with acupuncture, placebo acupuncture, and no acupuncture groups
8 October 2012
As long as sham-acupuncture is performed in the same segmental region, either verum and sham acupuncture will both have effects.
In my opinion there are hardly any investigations with real sham-acupuncture and thus it's better to compare with no treatment or conventional threatment.
