Article summary:

1. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) is a common clinical disease that causes chronic pain and reduces the quality of life for patients, especially middle-aged and elderly people.

2. Acupuncture has been shown to have good therapeutic efficacy on bone impediments, including KOA, and this randomized controlled trial aims to evaluate the long-term effects of acupuncture on KOA patients.

3. The study will compare the effects of acupuncture with deqi (a sensation of soreness, numbness, or distension during acupuncture treatment) versus acupuncture without deqi and a waiting-list group, using various outcome measures such as the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis index (WOMAC score) and Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS).
