According to a clinical trial published in PLOS ONE, electroacupuncture improved International Prostate Symptom Scores (IPSS) on patients. The trial measured improvements in symptoms such as frequent urination, strain and other bladder related complications. The trial found that acupuncture treatment improved these symptoms in patients suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia, or enlarged prostate. There have been multiple studies that have proven acupuncture helpful. Another Chinese study published in 2008 also found that electroacupuncture had a 96.4 percent rate of effectiveness for treatment.
