In November 2011 the NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidelines decided that Acupuncture should be made available on the NHS for chronic lower back pain. A decision that the BAcC fully endorses.
Clinical trial, built upon other research that the therapy helps reduce joint pain, reports acupuncture found to produce "significant improvements" in fatigue, anxiety and depression in a little as 8 weeks.
British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) Newsflash!
Due to a fantastic opportunity the BAcC is now working closely with Backcare - the largest charity for back pain www.backcare.org.uk - on updating their phone app.
