Acupuncture Effective in Pain Treatment
A trial in Melbourne's emergency medical departments conducted through partnership with RMIT University (where Dr. White completed his Acupuncture and Neurophysiology research). This sort of research proves promising for Acupuncture to be accepted into emergency care as it is in other parts of the world. Dr. White, for one, has been applying acupuncture at Royal North Shore Hospital and Royal Rehab Centre's spinal injury units for over 8 years with very promising results in the management of paralysis and pain (in conjunction with other rehabilitation therapies).
The mechanisms of Acupuncture's effectiveness in treating pain is very clear from the Chinese medical scientific paradigm. Slowly, but surely, modern research are making positive steps to try and understand it through their medical and scientific system. With more research from both parties integration and development for future clinical methods can occur.
In Good Health,
