Many studies have focused on using acupuncture to treat chronic pain, but a recent study sheds light on the effectiveness of acupuncture for acute pain. In fact, patients responded faster and better to acupuncture than to intravenous morphine! Over 300 people were recruited for the study, and it is in press to be published in the prestigious American Journal of Emergency Medicine, August edition.
We treat acute pain very successfully and efficiently here at our Asheville Clinic. If you know anyone in acute pain, let them know that acupuncture could help. You can also show this medical study to your doctor and helpd educate people about the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of acute pain.
