Acupuncture for children and the elderly?

Its official: Acupuncture reduces the cost of back pain to health services.

Well in Canada anyway!   A study showed that there was a 49% drop in visits to physicians in those who had their back pain treated by Acupuncture. One day health managers will realise how much we save them in all sorts of areas!  Keep telling your GP what acupuncture does for you……
