Chronic Pain and Aging
A good part of my acupuncture practice is patients over 60. (I'm almost 60 myself!) They often present with many complex conditions in addition to their pain.
Diabetes, cancer, and other conditions are present and yet they need additional support for their pain. Often I'm asked if there is evidence that acupuncture will help them. Here is a study from PubMed to address that question.
