Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Date Published: 24 Jun, 2018

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a debilitating condition of extreme fatigue that is worsened with mental or physical exertion which has lasted 6 months or longer. Depression, sore throat and muscle pain are also symptoms that may present.

A recent study from China has highlighted the efficacy of Acupuncture in assisting patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.

Acupuncture with moxibustion and acupuncture alone, were used in 2 separate groups, with a third group receiving sham acupuncture. A Chalder Fatigue scale was used to assess physical fatigue, mental fatigue and general fatigue, with a significant reduction in both acupuncture groups, but not the sham group. A self-rating satisfaction scale was also used and the acupuncture and moxa combined group had an overall rating of 72.7%.

The study found that both acupuncture and acupuncture with moxa were more effective than sham and is a viable treatment option for patients suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome.
