Acupuncture benefits for pain
Acupuncture has shown some benefits in certain chronic pain conditions. This treatment is most beneficial for dental issues or temporomandibular joint pain. Acupuncture may be beneficial in the management of osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, and some headaches. There is less convincing support that acupuncture will help manage chronic pain syndromes or back pain. Studying efficacy is challenging, given the varying degree of practitioner style and technique, as well as the limited quality and quantity of current research available.
