Can Acupuncture improve Tinnitus?

Retrieved from Journal of Chinese Medicine

Iranian investigators have found that acupuncture can reduce the severity of tinnitus. In their randomised trial, 88 patients suffering from chronic tinnitus were allocated to either verum or sham acupuncture. Those in the verum acupuncture group were needled at Tinghui GB-2, Fengchi GB-20, Ermen SJ-21, Tinggong SI-19, Tianrong SJ-17, Zhongzhu SJ-3, Waiguan SJ-5, Hegu L.I.-4 and Yanglao SI-6. Sham consisted of needling at adjacent non-acupoints. Patients received 15 acupuncture sessions three times per week for five weeks.

Loudness and severity of tinnitus improved significantly over the course of the treatment in both groups, however only the verum acupuncture group experienced continued improvement in symptom scores in the three weeks following the end of the treatment period.
