Recent Study Shows Acupuncture Effective for Chronic Pain

Recent Study Shows Acupuncture Effective for Chronic Pain

A new study published last month in the Archives of Internal Medicine demonstrates that acupuncture is more effective for chronic pain than “sham acupuncture,” which is a placebo version of the treatment. This study has been touted as one of the largest, most rigorous and robust analyses to date on the effectiveness of acupuncture treatments for the amelioration of pain.

This study received major news coverage from news entities all over the world, proving that acupuncture has been and will continue to be used for pain management effectively throughout the world. The NCCAOM used the momentum created by this important news to send out a nation-wide press release to promote the safe and effective practice of acupuncture by NCCAOM certified Diplomates with special attention to how to find a certified Diplomate via the NCCAOM website.
