 Acupuncture can Treat Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

Mild traumatic brain injury can be effectively treated with acupuncture, a new report published in the January issue of the Journal of Neurotrauma reveals.

Researchers from the University of Colorado studied the effect of an acupressure treatment which involved stimulating particular points on the body.

The treatment, known as Jin Shin, was studied on 38 volunteers, half of whom were placed in a control group which involved the same experts conducting the treatment on other points of the body that did not come under the treatment.

"We found that the study subjects with mild traumatic brain injury who were treated with acupressure showed improved cognitive function, scoring significantly better on tests of working memory when compared to the TBI subjects in the placebo control group", lead researcher Professor Theresa Hernandez said.
