I recently read this article which describes a very large meta-study on the efficacy of acupuncture for pain related problems. This meta-study provides the most definitive endorsement of the scientific world so far of acupuncture as a medical procedure and has many in the medical world considering acupuncture as a safe and effective treatment of pain conditions. Many past meta-studies have looked at focused areas such as low back pain, or migraines. This study combines 29 studies that look at multiple conditions involving pain. As we focus on an evidence based medicine approach at the Davis Holistic Health Center, these studies provide both the rationale and best practice strategies for working with all kinds of pain conditions. As always, you can contact our office for more information. You may access this article at the following link: Study
