The National Institutes of Health Consensus Statement on Acupuncture states: “…promising results have emerged, for example, showing efficacy of acupuncture in adult postoperative and chemotherapy nausea and vomiting and in postoperative dental pain. There are also situations such as addiction, stroke rehabilitation, HEADACHE, menstrual cramps, tennis elbow, FIBROMYALGIA, myofascial pain, osteoarthritis, low back pain, CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME, and ASTHMA in which acupuncture may be useful as an adjunct treatment or an acceptable alternative to be included in a comprehensive management program.”
