Mayo Clinic Study Found Acupuncture Is Helpful With Fibromyalgia

The June 2007 edition of the Mayo Clinic Proceedings reports on a 2006 study that found acupuncture helpful in treating the fatigue and anxiety commonly experienced by fibromyalgia patients.

“The results of the study convince me there is something more than the placebo effect to acupuncture,” says David Martin, M.D., Ph.D., lead author of the acupuncture article and a Mayo Clinic anesthesiologist. “It affirms a lot of clinical impressions that this complementary medical technique is helpful for patients.”
