This ground-breaking review found evidence for the effectiveness of acupuncture for 117 conditions, with stronger evidence for acupuncture’s effectiveness for some conditions than others. Also, research shows acupuncture is considered safe in the hands of a well-trained practitioner.
Of the 122 conditions identified by the review, strong evidence supported the effectiveness of acupuncture for eight conditions, moderate evidence supported the use of acupuncture for a further 38 conditions, unclear evidence supported the use of acupuncture for 71 conditions, and little or no evidence was found for the effectiveness of acupuncture for five conditions (meaning that further research is needed to clarify the effectiveness of acupuncture in these last two categories).
Advocates of evidence-based healthcare can no longer dispute that acupuncture works.
