Work-Related Injury: Neck Pain May be Relieved by Acupuncture as Well as by Injections

One of the common injuries we see in workers’ compensation cases is to the neck. A recent study published on Spineuniverse, a website dealing with neck and back pain suggests that acupuncture relieves neck pain as well as injection therapy does, without the use of any medication. Unfortunately, though, neither of these methods seems to work for even half of patients. According to the study, 43.6% of acupuncture patients described themselves as being at least satisfied with their treatment, as compared to 41.3% of injection patients. Since surgery is a last resort, acupuncture can at least be considered as an option to relieve neck pain.
