In UK, a Nod to Acupuncture

The National Health Service (NHS) in the UK has announced that they will be offering patients suffering from back pain some choices other than physician visits and pain medications for their care. Under the new guidelines, back-pain sufferers can choose to attend exercise classes, have acupuncture, or receive spinal manipulation from an osteopath or chiropractor. These new benefits are based on findings that these therapies are beneficial to people with back pain, and offer practitioners around the globe recognition of their valuable and useful work.
