Acupuncture more effective than standard treatment for chronic pain

by Rachael Forrest

Latest research from the most rigorous trials to date and reported here in the New York Times and published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, has found that acupuncture can ease migraines, arthritis and other forms of chronic pain.

The report showed that acupuncture outperformed sham treatments and standard care when used by people suffering from osteoarthritis, migraines and back & neck pain.  The painstaking research took 6 years and involved around 40 specialists who analysed all the original data from highly regarded studies.

Here in the clinic see fantastic results when treating arthritis and chronic pain.  We are so happy when our patients report a reduction or absence of pain after treatments, especially if they've been suffering for a long time.
