3168 A Pilot Study of Acupuncture in Treating Bortezomib-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (BIPN) in Multiple Myeloma (MM) Patients
Conclusions: Acupuncture is safe and effective in treating persistent moderate to severe BIPN, with improvements in patient-reported outcomes, pain, and function. The increased BDNF during acupuncture treatment suggests that acupuncture may work through promoting survival and growth of neurons, a lengthy process that may explain the lag of significant objective clinical improvement in the short follow up of our patients. The mechanism of acupuncture working through BDNF to treat PN warrants further evaluation.
Acupuncture for chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy
In that given acupuncture, both the speed and the intensity of the nerve signaling improved in five out of the six patients. And these same patients said their condition had improved. Among those in the comparison group, speed remained the same in three, fell in one, and improved in one. The intensity remained the same in one, improved in two, and decreased in two.
The authors point to previous research, which suggests that acupuncture may boost blood flow in the legs, which may in turn aid the repair of nerve damage.
“The data suggest that acupuncture has a positive effect on CIPN, as measured by objective parameters [nerve conduction studies],” write the authors, adding that their results are similar to those found in patients with nerve damage caused by diabetes and those with peripheral neuropathy of unknown cause.
Acupuncture Delray for Peripheral Neuropathy at Acupuncture Zen on Atlantic Ave has varied treatments for neuropathy including acupuncture, electro-stim, and k laser.
Acupuncture treatment for chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy – a case series
Raimond Wong, Stephen Sagar
For social reasons, one patient discontinued acupuncture after seven treatments. All other patients finished the two courses of treatment. At the end of the acupuncture therapy, all five patients reported improvement of pain, numbness, and tingling. The average pain score was reduced to 3 out of 10 (range 1 to 5). Improved symptoms were seen after the first treatment in one patient who had experienced six months of CIPN. Patients with severe numbness in their fingers and toes, who were treated by needling the jing points, showed remarkable improvement in the sensation and movement of the treated fingers and toes after the first treatment. All patients had a reduction in analgesic dosage. Gait was significantly improved in all three patients who complained of imbalance. There were no adverse side effects. At six months follow up, symptom control persisted in four patients. One patient with a history of diabetes and multiple sclerosis reported improvement of symptoms for only one month.
