"Is there something actually happening
by needling patients. is it

stimulating patients' natural pain
killers that help turn off a

headache?"



DOCTOR BRONER SAYS THE STUDY DOESN'T
INVALIDATE TRADITIONAL

ACUPUNCTURE... BUT IT RAISES QUESTIONS
ABOUT IT.



(SOT- Dr. Susan Broner/Roosevelt


Hospital)

"I recommend that patients first pursue
standard tried and true medical

treatments i don't think this study
supports outright the use of

acupuncture."



BUT FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE ACUPUNCTURE

IT.
