Acupuncture for the Alleviation of Lateral Epicondyle Pain: A Systematic Review

This review evaluated the effectiveness of acupuncture as a treatment for lateral epicondylitis. Six high quality studies were analyzed. Strong evidence was found suggesting that acupuncture is effective in the short-term relief of lateral epicondyle pain. Five of six studies indicated that acupuncture treatment was more effective than a control treatment. Trinh KV, Phillips SD, Ho E, and et al. Rheumatology. 43(9):1085-90, 2004.
