Title

Study finds acupuncture can help patients with 'unexplained symptoms'

Results

The study involved 80 adults who had consulted their GP at least eight times in the past year with problems such as headaches, muscle pain, extreme tiredness, joint and back pain. Half were sent for acupuncture, up to 12 sessions in six months, while the remainder were given no extra treatment. Those having acupuncture had a ‘significant and sustained’ benefit in their symptoms
