Scientific Acupuncture Trial

To assess the potential of acupuncture to reduce waiting times, reduce pain and satisfy the desire of patients to see complementary medicine within mainstream healthcare hospital system.

Prospective, Randomised Control Trial of Acupuncture for Select Common Conditions within the E.D. Emergency Department of The Northern Hospital, Epping, Melbourne, Australia

45 patients were randomly assigned to an acupuncture group (32) and a conventional treatment group (13). Comparison of the physiological parameters following treatment revealed no significant differences between the two groups (Table 3). These results demonstrate that acupuncture and conventional treatment are equally effective to reduce pain, however the acupuncture group received a significantly higher rate of patient satisfaction with the treatment. Authors: Carina Harkin & Robyn Parker. Carina Harkin BHSc.Nat.BHSc.Hom.BHSc.Acu. Cert IV TAE. Pdf of scientific trial comparing acupuncture to drugs for pain relief in an Emergency Department
