Auricular Point Acupressure to Self-Manage Aromatase Inhibitor Musculoskeletal Symptoms in Breast Cancer Survivors

About the Study

Severe joint pain and muscle stiffness are common side effects of taking Aromatase Inhibitors.  Aromatase inhibitor musculoskeletal symptoms have a negative effect on a woman's physical function and quality of life. Auricular point acupressure uses stimulation applied to points on the ear without using needles. This study will look at and test auricular (ear) point acupressure to manage aromatase-inhibitor-caused joint pain and muscle stiffness in breast cancer survivors.
