Many of our clients have tried just about everything to alleviate they pain they are in from injuries caused by someone else’s negligence. A new study from the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom shows that acupuncture is a legitimate treatment for chronic pain associated with chronic back and neck pain, osteoarthritis, shoulder pain, and chronic headache. The researchers followed 17,922 participants in 29 randomized trials that took place over a number of years.The study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, shows acupuncture’s pain relief benefit was statistically superior to both usual care and placebo acupuncture. If your healthcare provider thinks it may be right for you, Personal Injury Protection, MedPay and Workers Compensation benefits usually allow for acupuncture treatment.
