Largest Study Ever Concludes that Acupuncture 'Very Effective in Treating Pain'

From the Annals of Internal Medicine comes the results of the largest study ever on acupuncture and pain management. Business Insider reported on this study and quotes it as saying, 

Data compiled from 29 studies of almost 18,000 people found that acupuncture was better at relieving pain than not having the treatment at all or undergoing a sham procedure, according to research reported in the Archives of Internal Medicine today.

While this finding is hardly surprising to acupuncturists or the millions of clients who have experienced the benefits of acupuncture treatments for their pain issues, it is reassuring to have such a prestigious journal publish such uniformly positive results.
