Search for sufferers having acupuncture.

PATIENTS undergoing acupuncture for back pain are being asked to take part in a research study.

Acupuncturist and physiotherapist Jacqueline Brown, who practices at the Natural Health and Fertility Clinic in Whitchurch, is taking part in an Arthritis Research Campaign study.

The research will examine why some patients get better pain relief than others. It is hoped the study will determine if other factors, rather than just the use of acupuncture needles play a part in relieving pain.

The study, run by the University of Southampton, aims to recruit 500 people from across the UK.
