Acupuncture and Pain Research

A study was recently published that looked at how acupuncture compares to different controls (e.g., different placebo "needling") for pain management. In the study authors pooled together data from numerous other studies (something known as a "meta-analysis") on acupuncture in treating pain. They concluded that "[a]cupuncture was significantly superior to all categories of control group." Click here to read the original study.
