Acupuncture has been medically proven to effectively address back pain. The medical practice of Anne Hermann, MD in Tampa and St. Petersburg, FL is based on evidenced-based medicine that includes acupuncture treatments that relieve back pain. Back pain relief provided by acupuncture is not a placebo affect but is clearly proven to provide long term relief in medical studies.
In a recent report from the University of Maryland Center for Integrative Medicine, 33 studies including 2200 patients were analyzed. The studies were done based on the gold standard of medical evaluation which included testing done with true acupuncture and sham studies. In the sham studies, needles were placed incorrectly or not inserted. The results proved that acupuncture treated back pain in the both short term, 3 weeks after the last treatment, as well as back pain relief for long term periods.
