Understanding non-specific treatment effects can potentially help clinicians to integrate them in to practice and thus optimise treatment effectiveness. Future research is needed to clarify whether interventions targeting modifiable non-specific factors prior to and during acupuncture treatment can result in better patient outcomes and future cost-savings.
