Single-point acupuncture can lead to significant short-term improvements in urinary incontinence (UI), report American authors. In a pilot trial, 12 female subjects received a single acupuncture treatment using one needle at Qugu REN-2. Statistically significant improvements were seen with respect to symptoms of urgency, stress incontinence, impact of urine leakage, quantity of urine leakage, and total incontinence score at two weeks post-intervention. A statistically significant improvement in impact of urine leakage was also found at the eight-week follow-up, compared to the week 2 results.
