No Brexit for Acupuncture!

The International Symposium on Research in Acupuncture has just concluded in Bologna, and among the results reported was the fact that a research team from the University of Oslo "had identified 4,463 positive recommendations for acupuncture in 2,175 different publications around the world. A total of 2,999 of those recommendations were for the use of acupuncture in 146 pain indications, while 1,464 were for the use of acupuncture in 152 non-pain indications...For more than 83% of these recommendations, ‘positive or trend positive findings were found in reviews of literature’, suggesting the recommendations were generally evidence-based."

Acupuncture is becoming increasingly integrated into mainstream medicine around the world, with it making a positive contribution in key areas such as dealing with the crisis caused by opioid overuse.
