In recent years, additional methods that could be beneficial in alleviating chronic pain include acupuncture. This traditional Chinese medicine practice entails the insertion and manipulation of thin needles into specific areas of the skin. While scientific research has demonstrated the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating certain types of pain, there is limited evidence regarding its efficacy in managing cancer-related pain. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy involves the application of a low-level electrical current through electrodes placed on the skin, eliciting a response from the body that helps alleviate pain.
