New Delhi, Aug 24 (ANI): Researchers have found that people with chronic lower back pain who perform self-administered acupressure experience improvement in pain and fatigue symptoms. In the study, published in the journal, 'Pain Medicine,' the research team randomly assigned 67 participants with chronic low back pain into three groups. "Relaxing acupressure is thought to be effective in reducing insomnia while stimulating acupressure is thought to be effective in fatigue reduction," Murphy said. Participants in the acupressure groups were trained to administer acupressure on certain points of the body, and spent between 27 and 30 minutes daily, over the course of six weeks, performing the technique. She said this study highlights the benefits of a non-pharmacological treatment option that patients could perform easily on their own and see positive results.
