Case

The clinician must identify alternatives at this crucial moment. At the same time, this patient must remain connected to the primary physician or oncologist because of the progressive nature of the pain problem and the likely need for opioid and other aggressive analgesic measures. From the classification scheme of CAM therapies, one can rule out movement-based therapies and manipulative therapies, which would certainly aggravate bone pain. The goal for a complementary or alternative therapy may be to manage nausea rather than pain since some opioid is likely to be needed no matter what alternatives are applied. Acupuncture has been shown to improve nausea in several controlled trials in a variety of settings, including nausea due to cancer chemotherapy. It may be worthwhile to offer it for opioid-induced nausea. Acupressure can be applied more frequently at the same well-defined point on the volar aspect of the wrist (P-6) by a caregiver or by using a wristband with a pressure bead...

Dysmenorrhea

Dysmenorrhea refers to the occurrence of painful menstrual cramps of uterine origin and is a common gynecological complaint. Based on epidemiologic studies, at least 72.7 of female adolescents reported pain or discomfort during their period and almost 58.9 of them reported decreased activity and 45.6 reported school or work absenteeism (Taylor et al. 2002). A survey conducted on a group of female adolescents indicated that the majority of the respondents identified dysmenorrhea as one of the problems interfering with their academic performance and school absenteeism. Thus dysmenorrhea and premenstrual symptoms are common pediatric pain problems (Helms 1987). Common treatment for dysmenorrhea includes medical therapy such as NSAIDs or oral contraceptive pills (OCPs). Both modalities work by reducing myometrial activity (contractions of the uterus). The efficacy of conventional treatments such as NSAIDs is considerable. However, the failure rate can be as high as 20-25 . It is not...

Labor Analgesia

Acupuncture and related interventions have been considered as alternatives for pain relief for epidural labor analgesia. Acupuncture and related interventions were compared with meperidine consumption for labor analgesia. A randomized, non-blinded, controlled study found a decrease in the requirement for meperidine in the acupuncture group as compared to a control group with the same parity (Ramnero et al. 2002). Chung and colleagues applied acupressure as the analgesic for the first stage of labor (Chung et al. 2003). These investigators found that during the first stage of labor the patients who received acupressure reported significantly less labor pain compared to patients who received sham or no treatment. A recent study by Lee et al. (2004) performed a sham-controlled RCT to evaluate the analgesic effects of acupressure on the intensity of labor pain and duration of labor. These investigators reported that labor pain score during the first hour following the intervention was...
