Acupuncture Gets an “A” for Treating Chronic Low Back Pain

In Research on September 10, 2010 at 5:52 pm

In the June 15th, 2009, issue of American Family Physician, acupuncture was given an evidence rating of “A”, the same rating given to analgesics, such as acetaminophen and Ultram, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) – That’s the same strength of evidence, but without all the potential damage to the kidney and gastrointestinal systems! 🙂
