Even within these groups, the mechanisms are very different. We’ve also learned a lot more about the psychosocial variables that are associated with prolonged disability and distress when pain persists. Some of the earliest work by Turk and coll...
Conclusion: The conclusions of this systematic review and meta-analysis will provide evidence to evaluate the effectiveness of acupotomology/ acupotomy/needle knife for CR and further guide clinical decision-making. Ethics and Dissemination: This study is based on literature and therefore does not require ethical approval or patient consent. The study will be published in a peer-reviewed journal.
