Can acupuncture treatments help patients with allergic rhinitis?
Allergic rhinitis causes cold-like symptoms and is inflammation of the inside of the nose caused by an allergen, such as pollen, dust, mold, or from certain animals.
A study published in the European Journal of Medical Research assessed the efficacy and safety of acupuncture for allergic rhinitis and tested the robustness of the effects.
30 randomized controlled trials with over 4,400 participants compared acupuncture with other therapies for allergic rhinitis and trial sequential analysis were conducted to test the robustness of pooled results.
This study concluded that acupuncture may have an advantage over no intervention and sham acupuncture in improving nasal symptoms and quality of life for adults with allergic rhinitis.
