Acupuncture has been the subject of a growing number of researches in recent years, which have demonstrated, in addition to an increasing space as a reference in the complementary treatment of diseases, the relevant perspective of their interaction with the analgesic system through its action on the regulation of pain. Current studies have narrowed the relationship of acupuncture with other therapeutic resources within the medical clinic, aiding in the treatment of several pathologies, among them low back pain - LBP. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of transcutaneous electrostimulation therapy - TENS - in patients with LBP associated to the complementary treatment with acupuncture. Methodology & Theoretical Guidance: A randomized, uni-blind controlled clinical trial in which the sample was obtained for convenience and 45 patients with LBP with a history of pain present for more than three months were included. This total of patients was divided into three equal groups where the spectra of each of them were compared, being the intervention group formed by patients who received the combination of treatments - acupuncture and TENS - and compared to two other groups that received these two techniques in isolation. Conclusions: From a statistical analysis of the results obtained, the authors conclude that there were significant differences in points B25-Right, B24-Right and Left, and B23-Right and Left for the groups that received acupuncture and also for the association Of acupuncture with TENS. Acupuncture treatment promoted analgesia in patients with LBP, and had a significant short-term effect on pain and quality of life of these patients.
