This is a prospectively randomized and double-blinded clinical study. Cancer patients were suffered from the taxanes-induced joint pain, and would be advised to receive laser acupuncture in specific points to relieve pain. Clinical effects of analgesic changes would be evaluated before and after the intervention. The inflammation associated indices would be further analyzed to reveal the therapeutic mechanism of laser acupuncture. The laser acupuncture was expected to relief taxanes-induced adverse effects in patients and also can improve patients' life quality.
