Acupuncture’s effectiveness confirmed in major new study

A major new study consolidating data from over 18,000 patients proved the most concrete scientific evidence yet that acupuncture can treat chronic pain has just been released and has been on national news.

Here is a nice summary in the New York Times:

This shows that acupuncture is steadily become more mainstream. This was a really good quality study that may move more insurers to cover acupuncture like any other medical therapy. I never forget that there is a national crisis in chronic pain management. Millions of people are addicted to narcotics and pain killers and thousands die every year because of the limitations and dangers of the conventional approaches to pain management.

Acupuncture is a much safer and increasingly proven alternative.
