At World Congress of Pain held in Montréal: Acupuncture for Pain

At World Congress of Pain held in Montréal, Canada, Acupuncture was featured in numerous presentations. I will cover the studies in more detail in another post, but there is a quick observation I would like to share here.

As far as physical therapies are concerned, acupuncture was a hand down winner in terms of the number of studies presented at the congress: there were 14 abstracts on acupuncture presented, but only 4 for physiotherapy, 1 for osteopathy and none for chiropractic.

Pain congress: Acupuncture vs physiotherapy, osteopahty and chiropractic

This illustrates how much interest and attention acupuncture is receiving from scientists compared to other modalities.

    Hi Dr. Vitalis
    I wanted to know where you searched the information about this. I tried to find it in the World Congress of Pain web page but I couldn´t.

    Thank you very much,

    From Spain,
