    Abstract

    Acupuncture is commonly used for acute low back pain (LBP), and a recent systematic review found encouraging evidence on its effectiveness compared with medication or sham acupuncture.1 I believe your readers will be interested to hear the details of a recently treated case which is somewhat unusual, and where the patient’s improvement seems likely to be more than a placebo response.
