AOMA presents pain research at Seton Healthcare Network clinical forum

Comparison of Pre and Post Treatment Scores of Patients Receiving Acupuncture for Pain

On Friday, May 7, 2010 Veronica L. Conners, RN, EdD, PhD, Provost and Meera Hoffman, BS, Institutional Effectiveness Coordinator of the Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin (AOMA) will present a poster at the 3rd Annual Central Texas Clinical Research Forum. This forum, sponsored by the Seton Healthcare Network, brings together health and wellness professionals, professors and students interested in this line of premier research.

In a retrospective study of AOMA patients receiving acupuncture treatment for pain, a significant decrease in pain after acupuncture treatment was demonstrated. Overall, directly after treatment, a decrease of 27% was reported from the pre-treatment pain level. The results were both clinically and statistically significant (p < 0.0001). This study contributes to the growing body of evidence that acupuncture has a key role to play in the alleviation of pain.
