Every year Mike Cummings the head of The British Medical Acupuncture Society pools the latest evidence for acupuncture across a spectrum of conditions and also details updates in the understanding of acupuncture mechanisms from a biomedical perspective.

While there are considerable differences from medical acupuncture and traditional acupuncture, the value of having a wide variety of expertise in the conventional medical community who also understand the complexities of assessing acupuncture is huge. In the summary you can find details of acupuncture for problems like back pain, knee arthritis and headache, overactive bladder and shoulder pain.

There are also updates on the NICE guidelines which recommend acupuncture for the prevention of tension headache and migraine.

Full details of the paper can be found here:
