Acupuncture Could Ease Joint Pain From Breast Cancer Treatment
Acupuncture could ease an extremely common side effect of breast cancer treatment, a new study suggests.
Researcher from the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine found that acupuncture seems to decrease symptoms of arthralgia — or joint pain — from taking aromatase inhibitors. The findings are published in the European Journal of Cancer.
“This study is not the final answer, but it does provide strong evidence that acupuncture can play a role in controlling pain for breast cancer patients with AI related arthralgia,” study researcher Dr. Jun Mao, M.D., MSCE, who is an associate professor of Family Medicine and Community Health at the university, said in a statement. “We saw a significant reduction in pain levels in the acupuncture groups with only very mild, short-term adverse effects.”
Past research has suggested that 50 percent of people taking aromatase inhibitors experience joint pain, and as many as 20 percent of people taking the drugs will stop treatment due to the pain. Read the full artcile here.

Researchers found that it reduced their joint stiffness and pain by as much as 40 percent, whether or not the patient expected the therapy to work. (Joint stiffness and pain are common side effects of aromatase inhibitor, a hormonal therapy used to treat breast cancer.)
