list of conditions effectively treated with acupunture according to Western Medical Trials.
These trials were conducted using the same design as the FDA approves drugs with: usually double-bind placebo-controlled randomized studies. While their results are promising, it is obvious to even a laymen that acupuncture is a manual therapy not a chemical therapy and it does not fit this mold well. On top of it, any acupuncturist will tell you that 10 people might come in with low back pain or depression or PMS or an old football injury and they will probably be treated 10 different ways, this is one strength of Traditional Asian Medicine is its ability to individualize a treatment and adjust for differences. As a whole, Lowry Community Acupuncture gets BETTER results than these trials. Add herbal formulas on top, and the efficacy and number of conditions that are effectively treated increases.
