Clinical Evidence for Association of Acupuncture and Acupressure With Improved Cancer Pain.

Updated: Mar 20, 2023

CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE This systematic review and meta-analysis found that acupuncture and/or acupressure was significantly associated with reduced cancer pain and decreased use of analgesics, although the evidence level was moderate. This finding suggests that more rigorous trials are needed to identify the association of acupuncture and acupressure with specific types of cancer pain and to integrate such evidence into clinical care to reduce opioid use.
