Study Finds Proof of Acupuncture Success

December 6, 2012

DUBLIN, December 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Acupuncture has been long been lauded by many who are convinced of its positive effect
on pain. It appears that such claims can be backed up by a certain amount of technical
research after a team at the University of Southampton conducted a study into the role
acupuncture plays in the field of pain management.

Millions of people around the world suffer from chronic pain and pain management teams
have been working on all sorts of strategies to help them deal with their own individual
complaints. The strategies vary and take into account all sorts of methods, from drug
therapy to physical therapy.

Acupuncture is another technique that many sufferers of chronic pain swear by and the
team in Southampton, led by Professor George Lewith, have looked at a host of cases of
back pain, neck pain and joint pain in a bid to assess the efficacy of this popular
alternative treatment.

The results of the study made positive reading for clinics such as Fitzwilliam Health
Clinic. The patients who were treated using acupuncture to supplement other techniques
tended to find that their pain was eased alleviated more effectively than that of patients
who received no acupuncture alongside their usual pain management regimes.

Fitzwilliam Health Clinic [http://www.fitzwilliamhealth.ie ] has been providing
acupuncture alongside other forms of chiropractic, massage and physical therapy treatments
for years and it has built up an excellent reputation for dealing with pain.

Patients already visit http://www.fitzwilliamhealth.ie to seek advice and treatment
for complaints of all kinds and acupuncture is one of the most sought after therapies
available at the clinic. It is expected that the site will see even more traffic in the
future as acupuncture receives more attention in light of recent studies into its efficacy
as a treatment for chronic pain.

One of the drawbacks for acupuncture tends to be a widespread sense of scepticism
about whether it has the desired effect. However, Professor Lewith, who took charge of the
study at the University of Southampton, stated:

“Acupuncture is a treatment that is not readily recommended by clinicians but these
results will confirm that the effects of acupuncture are beneficial.”

Only time will tell whether the technique will earn more champions in the future, but
positive results are always a good sign in the field of medical trials.

As well as offering the latest acupuncture treatment Fitzwilliam Health Care are able
to offer many forms of Physical Therapy [http://www.fitzwilliamhealth.ie ], including
Sports Massage [http://www.fitzwilliamhealth.ie ] and also Fertility Treatment
[http://www.fitzwilliamhealth.ie ].
