From: Effect of acupuncture depth on muscle pain

Figure 2

Changes in electrical pain threshold (EPT) values after acupuncture. Acupuncture to ipsilateral muscle (muscle group) only increased the EPT of fascia significantly (P = 0.028), but skin (skin group) and non-segmental muscle (non-segmental group) had no effect at all tissues (in terms of depths). Asterisk indicates significant differences compared with the control group (* P < 0.05). Data are shown as mean ± SD.
