New Acupuncture for IBS Finding

New research concludes that acupuncture is effective for the treatment of IBS, irritable bowel syndrome. Local and distal needling for IBS is effective for pain reduction and reducing digestion disorders. IBS is characterized by chronic episodes of abdominal cramping and pain with diarrhea and/or constipation. The meta-analysis concludes, “Acupuncture exhibits clinically and statistically significant control of IBS symptoms.”

Published in the World Journal of Gastroenterology, the study investigated all types of IBS: diarrhea predominant, constipation predominant and alternating. A total of 64 research papers were found on acupuncture for the treatment of IBS. The researchers used strict controls and study designs and sorted for “randomization, concealment of allocation, double blinding, and dropouts.” A total of 6 studies met the methodological quality required for trial inclusion. The researchers noted “our meta-analysis of six randomized controlled trials suggests that acupuncture improves the symptoms of IBS, including abdominal pain and distension, sensation of incomplete defecation, times of defecation per day, and state of stool.”
