Patients with Parkinson’s Disease may suffer from different pain for years, including aching and burning from muscles, skeleton, or even throughout their body. In the current study, we provide that acupuncture could relieve such specific pain in PD patients through modulating regions related to the pain matrix in brain, especially correlated with primary somatosensory cortex and middle temporal pole. This could be an effective and safe analgesic tool that would relieve patients’ suffering.
