Acupuncture for pediatric pain and symptom management.

Over 2 million people in the United States are estimated to use acupuncture annually, primarily for musculoskeletal complaints and pain management, evidence that the integration of acupuncture into Western health care is increasing. Despite the increase in the quality of trials demonstrating the efficacy and safety of acupuncture in medicine, the pediatric acupuncture literature lacks the quantity and quality of the same body of evidence. Contributing to this paucity of evidence may be the acceptability of acupuncture in pediatric patients. There is an urgent need for high-quality randomized controlled trials on the use of acupuncture in the pediatric population. This review aims to highlight the evidence for use of acupuncture in pain and symptom management.
