Acupuncture as effective as drugs in treating pain, trial shows
Once again acupuncture has been shown to be an effective treatment option for a variety of painful conditions in the treatment of low back pain, sprained ankles and migraine headaches.
Researcher, Dr Michael Ben-Meir, stated that acupuncture offered the same level of pain relief as analgesic drugs when patients rated their pain one hour after treatment.
“Acupuncture was equivalent to what we defined as conventional medicine standard care, which was strong oral analgesia, such as Endone, Panadeine Forte, Voltaren and Valium,” he said.
The biggest barrier to acupuncture in pain care is by far the fear of needles. No one likes needles, but the reality is acupuncture is essentially painless. For those who are needle phobic we have other options such as lasers which are equally as effective.
