Acupuncture gets thumbs up

The Associated Press – 9/11/2012

Acupuncture gets high praise for helping relieve pain from chronic headaches, backaches and arthritis in a review of more than two dozen studies – the latest analysis of a therapy that has as many fans as critics.

Some say its only powers come from a placebo effect. But some doctors say even if that’s the explanation for acupuncture’s effectiveness, there’s no reason not to offer it if it makes people feel better. The analysis examined 29 studies involving almost 18,000 adults. The researchers concluded that the needle remedy worked better than usual pain treatment and slightly better than fake acupuncture. That kind of analysis is not the strongest type of research, but the authors took extra steps, including examining raw data from the original studies.

The analysis was published online Monday in Archives of Internal Medicine. The federal government’s National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine paid for most of the study, along with a small grant from the Samueli Institute, a nonprofit group that supports research on alternative healing.
