Objectives : To investigate the efficacy of acupuncture treatment with individualized setting for reduction of bothersomeness in participants with chronic low back pain (cLBP).

Methods : Multicenter, randomized, patient-assessor blind, sham-controlled clinical trial. 130 adults with nonspecific LBP lasting for at least 3 months. Participants received individualized real acupuncture or sham acupuncture treatments for more than 6 weeks (twice a week). Primary outcome was change of visual analogue scale (VAS) score for bothersomeness of cLBP. Secondary outcomes included VAS score for pain intensity and questionnaires including Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), general health status (Short Form-36), and Beck Depression Inventory (BDI).

Results : 116 participants finished the treatments and 3- and 6-month follow-ups. Significant difference in VAS score for bothersomeness and pain intensity score of cLBP has been found between the 2 groups at the primary end point (P <0.05). In addition, those 2 scores and the ODI, the BDI, and Short Form-36 scores were improved continuously until 3-month follow-up (P <0.05).

Conclusions : This trial suggests that acupuncture treatment shows better effect on the reduction of the bothersomeness and pain intensity than sham control in participants with cLBP.
