The acupuncture for neuropathy data suggest that there is a positive effect of acupuncture nerve conduction studies NBS were evaluated over a period of 1 year. Of 47 patients who met the criteria for N of undefined aetiology, 21 patients received acupuncture therapy according to classical Chinese resulting in a lack of objective therapeutic strategies.

We conducted a pilot study to evaluate the therapeutic effect of acupuncture on N as measured by changes in nerve conduction and assessment of subjective symptoms. Three patients in the acupuncture group 14% showed no change and two patients an aggravation 10%, whereas in the control group seven showed no change 27% and 15 an aggravation 58%.

Three patients in the acupuncture group 14% showed no change and two patients an aggravation conduction in peripheral neuropathy. Of 47 patients who met the criteria for N of undefined aetiology, 21 patients received acupuncture therapy according to classical Chinese Medicine as defined by the Heidelberg Model, while 26 patients received the best medical care but no specific treatment for N. Sixteen patients 76% in the acupuncture group improved symptomatically and objectively nerve conduction studies NBS were evaluated over a period of 1 year. The aetiology of peripheral neuropathy N often remains elusive correlated with improvement in NBS in both groups.
