Acupuncture has been around for centuries , there has always been questions on its ability to help with many different ailments.Many people swear by
it. Now in a recent study they have found some benefits on use in treating arthritis!
A major study of the effect of acupuncture on osteoarthritis of the knee has found it can both relieve pain and improve movement.
The US National Institutes of Health study concludes acupuncture is an effective complement to standard care.
If it works for this, I am sure that it also works on many other different health problems. Doctors and researchers should let go of the mistrust of
this treatment and do many more studies in this area!
