Is Acupuncture effective?
Many people ask the question – is acupuncture effective? There have been many evidence based research studies carried out and it has been found to be effective for many health conditions.
Is Acupuncture Evidence Based?
“In an ongoing search, by November, 2015 we had found OVER 870 RECOMMENDATIONS for acupuncture for over 100 CONDITIONS from multiple international groups and over 30 countries”. Birch, S. et al Evlim 2016.
This has since increased to over 1000 recommendations. It is safe to say that research into acupuncture is increasing in quality and quantity over time.
“It is no longer possible to say that the effectiveness of acupuncture can be attributed to the placebo effect or that it is useful only for musculoskeletal pain.” – Stephen Janz, 2017.
