Acupuncture treatment may be effective for women with chronic pelvic pain (CPP) secondary to abdominal myofascial pain syndrome (AMPS), reports a team of Brazilian clinicians. This pilot study involved 17 women with moderate-to-severe AMPS-related CPP who were unresponsive to previous treatment with trigger-point injection. Acupuncture treatments were given at abdominal-wall trigger points once per week for ten consecutive weeks. Pain scores showed significantly decreased pain intensity at the end of the treatment period and these effects were sustained at six month follow-up.
