Acupuncture can improve symptoms and quality of life in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Nineteen studies (1298 participants) were included in a Chinese meta-analysis. Exercise capacity, pulmonary function, breathlessness and quality of life all showed better improvement in patients treated with acupuncture adjunctive to other treatments, compared to those who received other treatments alone.
