American College of Physicians Recognises Value of Acupuncture for Back Pain

As the American College of Physicians (ACP) encourages a move away from drugs for the treatment of back pain, I found an interesting article on their website which recognises the value of alternatives such as acupuncture, when tackling this issue.

Entitled ‘new narrative for back pain means managing modalities‘ the article talks about drug-free options being an initial mode of therapy in some circumstances of acute, sub-acute and chronic low back pain.  Alongside a strong educational package of ergonomic and lifestyle changes, exercise and physical therapy, the ACP recognise that acupuncture, along with other alternative therapies, can play a huge role in the management of chronic lower back pain.
