Quality assessment

This review concluded that the use of acupuncture in the treatment of pain in osteoarthritis of the knee is an effective therapy, with few reported minor adverse events. The authors did not assess study quality, they failed to report details of the review process and they did not synthesise the results of studies. Their conclusions may not, therefore, be reliable.
