Acupuncture may help reduce back pain, research finds

A vast majority of our workers' compensation cases at Carroll & Carroll, P.C. involve clients who have suffered a back injury. Over the years of practicing workers' compensation law, the alternative medical procedure of "acupuncture" has gradually gained prominence.

I remember the early days when acupuncture was considered a bogus procedure. Now, most insurance companies will pay for acupuncture treatment.

A new study appears to show that acupuncture can be an effective treatment for chronic back pain with sufferers reporting a 20% reduction in pain.

Attached is a link to a telegraph article on the study.
