Figure 3

Histograms showing the effects of auricular acupuncture (AA) on paw volume, thermal pain threshold and pressure pain threshold in two groups of conscious animals (No AA or AA) that had CA-induced inflammation. Baseline values were obtained before the induction of brief anesthesia and CA injection. Paw volume is expressed as percentage increase from the baseline and thermal or pain threshold is shown as percentage change from the baseline. * P < 0.05, comparison between AA and No AA, n = 10 per group.
