A randomized trial comparing acupuncture, simulated acupuncture, and usual care for chronic low back pain.

Arch. Intern. Med. 2009 May 11;169(9):858-66.
PubMed Citation Journal Link

... CONCLUSIONS: Although acupuncture was found effective for chronic low back pain, tailoring needling sites to each patient and penetration of the skin appear to be unimportant in eliciting therapeutic benefits. These findings raise questions about acupuncture's purported mechanisms of action. It remains unclear whether acupuncture or our simulated method of acupuncture provide physiologically important stimulation or represent placebo or nonspecific effects.
