Acupuncture outperforms drugs for the relief of cancer pain. Research demonstrates that late-stage cancer patients have greater pain reductions using a special acupuncture point over the use of medications. This special use scenario applies to postoperative pain relief and pain prevention and management. Based on the findings, the non-pharmacologic and analgesic properties of acupuncture are clinically appropriate for late-stage cancer patients. An evaluation of the data indicates that an integrative medicine approach to patient care increases both the safety and efficacy of pain management by providing non-pharmacologic options, which helps to reduce dependence on opioids.
