À quel moment le médecin généraliste formé à l’acupuncture l’utilise-t-il dans la prise en charge de la lombalgie chronique ?

Abstract : Low back pain is a reason for daily consultation in general medicine. It becomes in 5% of cases chronic. Chronic low back pain requires comprehensive care and the general practitioner has a large therapeutic arsenal. Among these treatments, acupuncture has demonstrated its effectiveness on pain and function in the short term, but its place in the management of chronic low back pain ispoorly defined. A quantitative, descriptive, cross-sectional study was made to explore the practice of 33 general practitioners trained in acupuncture, using a clinical vignette with a computerized questionnaire. Acupuncture is used quickly (between the first and fourth therapeutic choice) in 32 physicians, including 19 in first-line. Comparisons between physicians practicing first-line acupuncture and other physicians did not show any statistically significant differences in studied parameters. Our study shows that acupuncture can be use dearly in the management of chronic low back pain without having a clear place in practice. Studies with a larger population are still needed to confirm these results.
