Acupuncture Effective in Treating Overactive Bladder
By: Sam Gaines, Staff Writer
Approximately 17 percent of American men and women suffer from overactive bladder and spend an estimated $20 billion on products to manage the condition. But research published in Obstetrics & Gynecology indicates that acupuncture may be a more effective treatment.
 
Researchers at the Oregon Health and Science University found that four weekly acupuncture sessions showed significant improvement in bladder control, frequency of urination, and the urgent need to urinate as compared to the control group, which received “sham” acupuncture as a placebo.
