Don’t persist with unsuccessful treatment; pin pain down with acupuncture
As indicated in recent research examining 1,100 sufferers of chronic lower back pain, those surveyed listed acupuncture as the treatment that most effectively met their pain management needs and had the most positive effect in reducing their back pain.
In the study, real back pain sufferers were assigned at random to receive half an hour’s treatment from either a sham acupuncturist, a real one, or a practitioner of conventional treatment. Naturally, participants were kept fully in the dark as to the identities of their treatment, so we can be confident of the accuracy of the results that ensued.
Nearly half of respondents (47%), the study found, demonstrated solid evidence of their condition having improved. This may seem so-so, yet when set in comparison to the percentage of participants showing signs of amelioration with conventional treatment alone, a mere 27%, the benefits of acupuncture speak for themselves. In addition, the healing effects of this treatment was revealed as extending for a minimum of six months after treatment, demonstrating the long-term value of investing in treatment through an ability to reduce future problems.
